It’s no secret that we’re living in the Digital Age. Technology keeps getting smaller, smarter, and integrated into everything. Wearing it has now become the social standard. We’re sharing a few of our fav wearable tech devices out today.
Apple Watch Series 2: “For all the ways you workout.”
With built-in GPS, a heart rate sensor, water resistance up to 50 meters, Apple’s brightest display to date, a workout app, activity app, and the ability to work with the third-party apps you already know and love, the Apple Watch just keeps getting better! I mean, seriously… what doesn’t this watch do?! There are more than 71 flavors, between different case materials, colors, sizes and interchangeable Apple Watch bands, making this one stylish and versatile accessory.
Apple Watch Series 2 counts more than just steps. It tracks all the ways you move throughout the day, whether you’re walking between meetings, doing cartwheels with your kids, or hitting the gym. Three simple rings give you a snapshot of your progress: Stand, Move, and Exercise. For the competitive athlete in all of us, your goal is to close your rings every day. Apple Watch Series 2 gives you regular progress updates and uses your success to motivate you to pursue new goals. Share and compare your Activity rings with friends and family to stay motivated. Or compete to see who can hit their goals and close their rings first. Receive notifications on your friends’ progress and easily respond right from the notification — whether it’s to send encouragement or a little smack talk. How cool does that sound?!
Jaybird X3 Wireless Headphones: “The perfection of wireless sound.”
So listen… (ha! See what we did there?!) Who likes to workout without music?! The only thing worse than working out without music, is working out with horrible sounding music. We’re talking sound quality here. And it matters. Jaybird is kinda “known” for their X Series headphones, and their third generation promises even bigger sound, better battery, and their most-secure fit. What we love most about them? Full helmet compatibility. Pretty sweet for us safety-first kind of bikers. And because we all have different preferences when it comes to our sound settings, Jaybird is introducing their MySound App to the X Series for the first time. Thus giving you the ability to customize the sound and save this unique profile to your X3 buds, so your preferences will stream whether you’re playing music off your dinosaur iPod or a Spotify playlist. Again, we love these.
We’re all about cutting down on distractions in the name of safety while riding. We’ve heard that stats, and now we know too much. Bicyclists must rely upon their vision, hearing, and full attention in order to best protect themselves from potential hazards. Reduced attention can place bicyclists and other road users at greater risk of sustaining an injury. So Coros Wearables came up with their suggested solution to this problem with the LINX Smart Cycling Helmet. The Coros LINX Smart Cycling Helmet enables riders to wirelessly connect their helmet to their smartphone. With Coros LINX, you can listen to your own music, take phone calls, talk to fellow riders, and hear navigation and ride data through our open-ear Bone Conduction Technology and a precision wind-resistant microphone. Coros LINX lets you stay hands, ears and eyes free so you can focus on the road and a better ride.
What in the world will they come up with next?!
