Automatic repetition counting Built-in TrackFit™ Motion sensor now automatically counts your reps. Jabra sport coach use I have used the headset continuously for over 3 hours, walking, making telephone calls, watching movies, working on a Laptop, & a bit of exercise.
This did not become uncomfortable on the contrary you can forget they’re in your ear. (this is partially due to the weight of the kit & options on EarGels that fit correctly.) The EarGels do not fall out with erratic motion.
The earbuds are not magnetic as seen with others but small enough not to be an issue. Dislikes: (Very Minor Gripes)
The app asked for your Date of Birth, I don’t have an issue with the year, month, but concerns over privacy (as with all companies that look for you details). This would be nice to have the option to include only the year / month etc., Mine is now set for the 1 Jan* As will all Bluetooth devices, if the headset is not switched off and you receive a phone call within 10 metres on the headset the audio come through the headset and could potentially miss the call.
Battery life is not as good as other headsets I have used, but at Music playing up to 5.5 hours, it’s not bad.
Jabra is a company I like as they do the simple things well, 3-year warranty, standard USB cable that fits most Android smart phones, ear buds included that come in small medium and large included in the pack, not optional extras. IP55 Certified, drop, strength, dirt, temperature & humidity tested. Should you lose or damage the ear buds you have the option to purchase new ear buds, A great app for the Integrated Training Management,
A snug fit of the earpiece and quality sound. If dedicated to been fit, certainly the product to go with. Jabra Sport Coach Special Edition £99.99 http://www.jabra.co.uk/sports-headphones/jabra-sport-coach-wireless
