Last evening, 50 Cent and SMS Audio have teamed up with Intel to design a range of smart headphones.
The smart gadgets grab the power from the connected phones or MP3 player and needs no charging.
What’s more, the data the headphones collected will then be logged and analysed online, and wearers will receive tips to boost fitness or weight loss.
The gadget includes optical sensor that monitors the change of heart rate, while also removing signals caused by body motion and ambient light.
These in-ear phones are also loaded with a software that changes the pace of the music based on the user’s level of activity.
The companies assure the smart gadgets will deliver the same high-end audio quality experienced across the SMS Audio range.
It’s ear-hook design is resistant to sweat and water, and will sync with RunKeeper app.
50 Cent’s SMS Audio will sell the headphones later this year and feature the rapper’s branding.
‘Intel is focused on driving innovation in the wearable technology segment by partnering with lifestyle brands like SMS Audio that complement our technology and design expertise,’ said Michael Bell, corporate vice president and general manager of the New Devices Group at Intel.
‘With SMS Audio, we will bring smart headphones to market that eliminate the inconvenience of add-on devices with an integrated, one-device fitness accessory offering high-end style and premier sound quality for an exceptional fitness experience.
The exact launch date and pricing are not yet revealed.
Earlier this year, Dr Dre became the world’s first hip-hop billionaire after Apple bought his Beats by Dre headphone business.
