With these intelligent headphones you can swim, run, save music and take in phone calls. Thanks to the Bluetooth function you can even track your sport activities.
With an enormously successful Kickstarter campaign the Munich start-up Bragi has launched the world’s first wireless smart in-ear headphones. The crowdfunding project even exceeded the targeted funding of US$ 260,000.
The fancy, wireless design is especially impressive.
At first sight the Bragi Dash looks like a stylish hearing aid but in fact it not only offers an extraordinary sound but also features biometric and phone functions. Thanks to these exceptional features The Dash becomes an activity tracker that can compete with smart bracelets like the Garmin VivoFit, Jawbone Up or Polar Loop. At ISPO MUNICH 2015 the innovative brand was awarded as “ISPO BRANDNEW WINNER” in the “Digital” category.
A motion sensor, a thermometer and an optical sensor are integrated into the tiny ear-buds.
They are able to record running distance, walking pace and frequency as well as biometric body data, like heart rate or oxygen saturation. With the Dash Bragi’s founder Nikolaj Hviid seeks to replace the omnipresent smartphone carried in pockets. The target group includes athletes and fitness junkies who are already familiar with “wearable technology”.
Through an app the data can be interpreted. Thanks to the Dash you don’t need to reach for your smartphone while doing sports or taking in calls. At the same time voice control and an integrated ear bone microphone turn the headphones into a Bluetooth headset.
