LG Electronics has introduced earphones that measure your heart rate. Dubbed the LG Heart Rate Earphones, the earphones are able to collect accurate data on a user’s heartrate and even provide analysis.
Now available for sale in the US market and soon in East Africa, the earphones can be linked wirelessly to the LG Lifeband Touch which has a bright, full-touch OLED display that provides easy, real-time access to a full range of fitness data so wearers can track their progress and adjust their workout plans accordingly.
Apart from health data, the LG Lifeband Touch enables one to check their incoming calls and messages and control their music playlists on their smartphones, keeping wearers connected while delivering an uninterrupted workout experience and are available for both Android and iOS OS and can work with LG’s Fitness app, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper and MapMyFitness and have a five-day 90mAh battery life.
LG’s Heart Rate Earphones provide accurate heart rate data by measuring blood flow signals in the ear via PerformTek sensor technology while also delivering excellent sound. Because of the unique physiology of the ear, wearers can get more accurate health and fitness metrics with LG’s Heart Rate Earphones than with other devices, especially when engaged in physical activity.
LG Heart Rate Earphones can be used alone or with LG Lifeband Touch. A separate clip-on medallion contains Bluetooth connectivity which sends data to the Lifeband Touch or a compatible smartphone. When using the LG Fitness App, users can also receive audible status updates informing them of their heart rate and VO2 max (maximal oxygen consumption) levels in real time.
