It’s no longer enough to just tie on your sneakers and head out for a run. Now you need your watch, footpod, headphones, heart rate monitor, and smartphone. We’re about a week away from SPIbelt including a battery in their products just to keep everything charged. Kuai has a much simpler solution: Kuai Multisport Biometric Headphones.
That’s a very long and fancy name for a very simple concept. Kuai took headphones, added sensors for heart rate and cadence, threw in 8Gbof memory for music and coaching downloads, and even added connectivity for Bluetooth and ANT+, so you can easily connect to a bike sensor or your phone. They’re waterproof to 3 meters, which isn’t terribly deep but is enough to handle swimming, so these are truly multisport headphones. Perfect for triathlon season!
Kuai has priced these extremely competitively at $149 on presale (MSRP is predicted to be $249). Individually, a coaching program, GPS/footpod connected watch, and a heart rate monitor would probably cost you around the same price, and that’s before you add in waterproof Bluetooth headphones.
