These New iHome Earphones Come With a Fitness Coach

Presumably for those without an iPhone and its wealth of app-based fitness options, iHome has partnered with New Balance to offer a set of earphones packed with workout features, including a pedometer and a heart-rate monitor.

The NB639 earphones are $99 and also comes with a voiceover that’ll announce calories burned, heart rate and distance. The unit syncs with bundled software that can analyze data recorded during your workout; we hope the software is Mac-friendly, because there’s no other way to view the data — the earphones don’t come with any kind of screen.

    woow i’m still astonished ,I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use BidsBug.com

    What an absurd and stupid looking design, and it’s plastic.

    I prefer to either jog outside or use my [url=http://www.bestellipticalfitne...]best elliptical for home use [/url] without any sound distractions – call me old fashioned but I like to remove myself from aspects of my daily routine when I exercise
