The Gear IconX connects over bluetooth to your phone and with up to four GB of internal storage, users can also enjoy a seamless and fully standalone music listening experience, easily controlled by a user-friendly touch interface. The earbuds provide data such as heart rate, distance, speed, duration and calories burned through the Voice Guide. Additionally, the charging case provides two extra charges for prolonged daily usage.
