Samsung delays launch of Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds to August 19th
Samsung was supposed to launch its Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds in the U.S. on August 14th. The product had been released in various countries last month. But with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 hitting the marketplace on August 19th, Samsung has decided to align the release of the Gear IconX with the release date of its new phablet. Also on the 19th of August, Samsung's Gear 360 VR camera will be available to purchase.

The Gear IconX is a completely wireless set of Bluetooth earbuds that go right into your ears. To charge them, the earbuds are placed inside their container. A USB cable connects to the box on one end and an outlet on the other end. 4GB of internal memory allows you to keep 1,000 tunes stored natively on the device and "Ambient Sound Mode" will pick up surrounding noises and let you hear them over the music playing in your ears.

Samsung added fitness tracker capabilities to the Gear IconX. While working out or doing exercises, you will hear verbal encouragement in your ear, motivating you to reach your goals. The earbuds integrate with third party fitness trackers and can keep track of things like your heart rate, amount of calories burned, the number of miles walked, and more.

The Samsung Gear IconX will work on Android devices running KitKat 4.4 or higher. The container can charge the earbuds twice before it needs a charge itself. Streaming from a smartphone, the battery will last about 1.5 hours. Listening to the tunes stored on the device will give you 3.6 hours of battery life.

The Gear IconX can be pre-ordered right now from Samsung and Verizon for $199.99; as we said, they are now set to launch on August 19th. You can choose from three colors, Black, Blue and White. If interested, click on the sourcelink.
