Currently available “true wireless earbuds” are stored inside a charging case that goes in your pocket. Aipower, a NYC-based innovative smart device maker decided to shake things up with its new Aipower Wearbuds by combining true wireless earbuds with a wrist-based fitness tracker. The company likes to call it “the world’s first wristband-housed true wireless earbuds.”
“All wireless earbuds are not truly wireless, because you always have to carry a charging case. Without it, earbuds cannot be powered on or off and will soon run out of power. There is an invisible wire that has long plagued true wireless experience,” said Oliver Sha Fei, co-founder of Aipower. “The innovative patented design of Wearbuds enables the earbuds to be stored and charged in a fitness band, bringing both audio and fitness tracking experience to consumers.”
No Need for a Charging Case
Both earbuds can be placed perfectly in the fitness tracking wristband which can also charge the earbuds with no need for carrying a charging case, the company said in a press release.
Wearbuds feature flawless audio streaming with an advanced Qualcomm chipset and Bluetooth 5.0 technology, reproducing booming bass and crisp highs through fine-tuned graphene-augmented drivers.
Call Freely with Either Earbud
Wearbuds support Mono Mode, a feature comes from the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology, allowing fast and easy hands-free phone calls with one or both earbuds.
Fitness Tracker on Your Wrist
The fitness band automatically counts your steps and calories burned and monitor heart rate and sleep pattern. A built-in touchscreen on the fitness band allows for instant access to all fitness data and notifications (including sedentary reminder) on the wrist. All fitness reports will be saved in the Aipower app. The band features on-wrist smartphone notifications which are customizable for calls, texts, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Instagram.
