FreeWavz: Smart Earphones with Built-in Fitness Monitoring

In my quest for finding wireless earbuds (earphones) I stumbled across a couple Kickstarter projects. One was simply what I was looking for and the other was even better. An ENT (Ear, Nose, & Throat) doctor named Eric Hensen came up with wireless earbuds that do so much more.

Some of the features include:

  • Similar exercise metrics of other tracking devices (e.g. calories, distance, etc.).
  • A built in heart rate monitor that can get that information from your ear.
  • Other biofeedback metrics like O2 saturation.
  • Depending are where you are exercising, you can adjust the volume to allow for environmental sounds (e.g passing cars, bikes, etc.) to get through.
  • Audible feedback about what you are doing.

They have almost met their goal. Check out the FreeWavz Kickstarter project.
