Before challenging Apple's hugely popular AirPods
with the sleek and fairly straightforward Galaxy Buds
, Samsung tried its hand at a somewhat quirky cross between wireless headphones
and an ear-worn fitness tracker
. Although the Gear IconX
didn't exactly knock our socks off with its battery life, charging capabilities, and ergonomics in two different incarnations
, it's hard to rival that versatility and lengthy list of features at a low enough price.
Available for as much as $199.99 back in the day, the 2018 edition of the Gear IconX
(which was technically released in 2017
) is on sale at a measly $59.99 right now on eBay. What's amazing about this deal is Quick Ship Electronics, a veteran seller with an impressive 99.9 percent positive feedback score based on more than 25,000 customer ratings, throws in a full 1-year warranty while also offering free nationwide shipping.
That means you have absolutely nothing to worry about in terms of the functionality of the heavily marked-down wireless fitness earbuds
, which are sold in "open box" condition. In other words, they're practically as good as new, shipping with their factory settings restored and original accessories included in packaging that could be "slightly distressed."
Coated in black only, the smart buds tip the scales at a puny 8 grams apiece, packing an understandably tiny battery that nevertheless promises a decent 7 hours of standalone music play between charges. Of course, the Gear IconX also come with a relatively lightweight charging case capable of providing a little extra juice with minimal effort. In addition to standard Bluetooth streaming functionality, the ultra-affordable wireless headphones support internal music storage as well allowing them to play your favorite tunes without necessarily connecting to a handset or tablet.
Last but not least, you can use these bad boys to track your various sporting activities, distance covered, workout duration, speed, and calories burned, once again without needing to sync to a smartphone and rely on its own sensors for all this stuff.
