New smart tech products for athletes

What to choose from the stream of high-tech innovations? Here is a selection of our favorite products to accompany your sporting efforts.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

Beats’ first wireless intras, the PowerBeats Pro take full advantage of Apple integration, including the use of the H1 chip, which allows easy pairing and excellent connectivity. Long awaited, this model promises improved sound reproduction, increased sweat and water resistance, impeccable support thanks to adjustable silicone hooks and impressive 9-hour battery life (24 hours with the charging box). The future reference for intra-sport?

OptiShokz Revvez

Fear of running with headphones and not hearing outside sounds? OptiShokz Revvez running glasses are made for you. First (and only) sunglasses equipped with bone conduction technology, they allow you to be attentive to the surrounding noise, the transducers placed at the end of the eyeglass branches sending sound using mini-vibrations through the cartilage located behind the ears to the inner ear. A somewhat disconcerting technology that allows you to run safely.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

Everything is available from the rising Chinese brand: phones, electric scooters, sports headphones (Mi Sport Bluetooth Earphones) and the connected Mi Band 3 watch. With its excellent design (a constant at Xiaomi), this new kind of activity bracelet offers a wide range of functions: OLED touch screen, step count calculation, waterproofing, stopwatch and automatic connection to the Mt Fit App app that records performance and provides daily weekly and monthly analysis. All this for less than 30 euros!

Philips Audio SHB 2515

The Philips Audio brand, which disappeared last year, is resurrecting with a new range of products enhanced with malignant features. Scheduled for summer, the SHB 2515 wireless ITEs are the perfect companion for long sports sequences with their battery that promises three hours of autonomy and above all the possibility of recharging them 25 times thanks to their case, also equipped with a 3200mAh Powerbank capable of charging a smartphone. A well thought-out 2-in-1, to listen to your music and run for a long time.

Fitbit Inspire HR

The activity bracelet resists competition from connected watches. New to the market leader, the Inspire HR continuously monitors heart rate, cardio fitness level, sleep phases, and measures calories burned. Above all, it can monitor the practice of 15 sports in real time and automatically recognize the sport you are playing. Five days of autonomy, a wide choice of bracelets and a waterproofness to 50 meters.
