  • Consistency – BioSport improves the consistency of data collection with an ear-wing design that sits deeper in the ear canal for continuous, real-time heart rate monitoring. Fusing fitness with technology, the built-in sensor continuously measures heart rate while dynamically removing noise signals caused by the body’s motion during a workout.
  • Integrated Charging – BioSport includes technology that enables the 3.5mm gold-plated audio jack to power the headphones and biometric monitoring capabilities, so users have the freedom of on-the-go power.
  • Durability – BioSport is ultra-durable with a 40U-rubberized coating to resist chipping and scratching. The headphones are IPX4-rated for protection against sweat and resistance to water.
  • Fitness-tracking – To help track your heart rate, pace, distance, elevation and calorie burn, the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones will be compatible with popular mainstream fitness app RunKeeper, with additional application support planned in 2015.
