Samsung Gear IconX wireless Bluetooth earbuds are now available in various markets

23


Back in June, we told you that Samsung had unveiled a set of wireless Bluetooth earbuds called the Samsung Gear IconX. Today, Samsung launched the product in various markets. The IconX is completely wireless which means that the left and right earbuds are not connected at all. The Samsung Gear IconX charges by connecting a USB cable to the carrying case and plugging it into an outlet.

Samsung added a fitness tracker to the earbuds, which will work with the S Health app. Through the Gear IconX, you will hear verbal encouragement motivating you to reach your goals. Data measured by the earbuds includes your heart rate, amount of calories burned, the number of miles walked, and more. It also will integrate with third party fitness bands.

Samsung wasn't messing around when it developed this product. A microphone allows you to hear sounds from your surroundings over the music playing over the earbuds with a feature called "Ambient Sound Mode." And you won't even need to bring your phone with you. 4GB of built-in storage will allow you to keep roughly 1,000 tunes on the device. Capacitive touch will allow you to control some settings with a swipe, and voice control will handle others.

With Bluetooth 4.1 on board, the Samsung Gear IconX works with any Android device running KitKat 4.4 and higher. Available now in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, Canada, Australia and Korea, you can pick them up in black, white, or dark blue. The earbuds are coming soon to the U.S. where they will be priced at $199.99. If interested, click on the sourcelink.
