As part of their new product range, Fitbit is also introducing their own new wireless headphones, the Fitbit Flyer.
Fitbit claims their first Bluetooth headphones feature a durable, sweatproof design and customizable fit, clear sound and powerful bass.
Fitbit says the wireless headphones incorporate cutting-edge technology from Waves MaxxAudio that delivers two sound profiles so you can personalize your listening experience.
The two different sound settings on-device – Signature and Power Boost – means users can select the profile that’s right for them by using the control box right on your headphones.
The 3-button control box lets users easily adjust sound, pause music and change songs on the go, while audio prompts keep you looped into incoming calls, battery life, song volume and more. With multi-device connectivity, you can simultaneously connect to two Bluetooth devices at once, making it easy to switch back and forth between listening to music on a computer or Fitbit Ionic to accepting a call on your phone, or even chatting with your digital assistant including Cortana, Google Assistant or Siri. The dual microphone enables high quality hands-free phone calls, reducing external noises, such as wind and crowd-noise to ensure voice clarity.
With seamless connectivity to Fitbit’s new Fitbit Ionic smartwatch, users can listen to their favourite music, top stations from Pandora, or Audio Coaching sessions (through the new Fitbit Coach app) all without their phone.
The Flyer features a durable design and includes a hydrophobic nano-coating that is rain, splash and sweatproof. A series of interchangeable ear tips, wings and fins allow you to personalize the fit of your headphones to ensure comfort and a secure fit in your ear throughout any workout. It has up to six hours of playtime and a 15-minute quick charge provides an extra hour of playtime.
“As we launch our first smartwatch with on-device music, providing quality wireless headphones to better help users reach their goals is a natural extension of our product offerings,” said James Park, CEO and co-founder of Fitbit. “Coupled with research that shows 64% of fitness tracker owners are interested in purchasing wireless headphones, it makes sense for us to bring our unparalleled health and fitness expertise to this space to deliver what our consumers are looking for most: great fit they can count on all day and for any workout, along with high quality sound to keep them motivated.”
The Fitbit Flyer is available in two colors, lunar gray or nightfall blue, for presale today on Fitbit.com and select online retailers tomorrow for $129.95. Flyer will be available in stores worldwide in October 2017 and at major North American retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Brookstone, Nordstrom and Target.
