It has been quite some time since we heard from the folks over at iRiver, and this time around, we have word that they have just rolled out what is deemed to be the first smart exercise headset in the world, namely, the iRiver ON. This is an intelligent headset that is said to be able to monitor one’s heart rate in a transparent manner. Apart from being able to monitor one’s real-time heart rate, it will also be able to keep track of physical location and workout data, all the while remaining invisible to the user as he or she enjoys some music. Apart from that, the iRiver ON will also happen to be the first Bluetooth audio headset that will be powered by PerformTek Precision Biometrics, which is a state-of-the-art sensor technology that will continuously measures real-time biometric data without sacrificing on both accuracy and consistency.
The iRiver ON sports a simple design which will offer all the biometric feedback, in addition to iRiver’s legendary listening experiences, boasting convenient music and call controls to boot. Apart from that, the iRiver ON would also arrive with its own complementary fitness application for both iOS and Android smartphones. The asking price for the iRiver ON stands at $199.99.
