You’re fit, but my gosh, don’t you know it?

You don’t need a hu­man run­ning part­ner; the JBL Re­flect Fit is an ap­pro­pri­ate sub­sti­tute.

Esquire (Singapore) - - MaHB -

Just when you think you’ve plateaued with wire­less sports head­phones, a com­pany like JBL sur­prises with one that has a heart rate mon­i­tor. Called JBL Re­flect Fit, this head­phone has its heart rate mon­i­tor lo­cated in the ear­buds. It checks your heart rate with re­fracted light from the blood ves­sels in your ears and data can be streamed to most fit­ness apps. There are re­ports out there about the ear­buds not be­ing able to read your heart rate if you’re ex­er­cis­ing but there was nary a prob­lem with my own ex­pe­ri­ence with the head­phone.

Made with con­sid­er­a­tion for run­ning, the de­vice is sweat-proof, er­gonomic and has re­flec­tive stripes along the wires. There’s the usual JBL-sig­na­ture sound from the 5.8mm dy­namic driv­ers and af­ter a bout of run­ning, you don’t re­ally no­tice the weight of it. The ear­bud ca­bles can’t be ad­justed, but there’s enough slack for the av­er­age user (un­less you’re a hu­man/gi­raffe hy­brid, in which case these ear­phones aren’t for you).

JBL Re­flect Fit re­tails for SGD199 and is avail­able at all JBL au­tho­rised sellers.
