Samsung’s new Gear IconX buds are bluetooth-connecting in-ears with no cords, and controls you can access with a series of taps and long-presses on their touch-sensitive surfaces. They also have 4GB of storage built into them, so you can fill them up with music and use them without a phone.
The Gear IconX buds also go beyond the norm with their heart-rate sensors. Like the new Gear Fit2, they’ll keep track of your ticker and feed the data to fitness apps. They’ll also work as Bluetooth headphones for Samsung’s latest wrist-worn fitness trackers.
Priced at $200 and available in black, white, and blue, they’ll go on sale sometime between July and September.
