Kuai sports headset 1

Looking for the ultimate in training partners? Well Kuai has developed the the world’s first multi-sport biometric headphones that will help you to achieve and exceed your fitness goals.

This sports headset is a heart rate monitor, foot pod, sport watch, music headset and virtual coach. Waterproof in up to 3 meters, this device is targeted for running, cycling, swimming and triathlon enthusiasts. Unlike traditional headsets that either require a smart phone to control or have the buttons in in-optimal positions, the Kuai sports headset was designed to offer ease of use including:

  • Two Navigation Switches
  • Control Like A Joysticks
  • Right Side Control The Sport Features
  • Left Side Control The Music And Calls
  • Perfect For Sport
  • Easiest Menus To Operate
  • Works Great Under Water

What I like about these headphones is that you get instant feedback when you are working. You can not only hear Your Biometric Data While Listening To Music but the information you get is provided via Live Voice Feedback Users can access their sport data and control all features using Kuai free mobile apps for iOS and Android or desktop apps for PC and MAC. And they may choose to export the data in .FIT to any popular fitness app like MapMyFitnes, Strava or Garmin.

From an engineering standpoint Kuai includes custom ear tips for different sports to ensure a secure fit. It is sweat and waterproof (up to three meters), can operate autonomously using its 8GB of memory and MP3 player, or connected to mobile devices using Bluetooth

Currently Kuai has working prototypes that biometric data collection, live voice coaching, BLE & ANT+ connections, music player and switch controls. They are looking for Kickstarter backers to help launch the product. The Kuaiwear team isn’t raising money to research an idea or develop a concept. They’re already far beyond those stages and are ready to begin manufacturing.
