Review: UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate

If you haven’t kept a close eye on the fitness industry recently, you might have missed a rather odd development. Athletic clothing company Under Armour has been busy snagging up fitness apps like Map My Run, Endomondo, and My Fitness Pal. It’s the key part of a larger strategy to integrate the various tracking services and devices that fitness nuts use under one banner. It should come as no surprise, then, that Under Armour is making a push into athletic earphones.

UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate

4/10

Wired

Awesome new heart rate monitoring tech that’s a generational leap over wrist-based trackers. Excellent Bluetooth connectivity.

Tired

Extremely large buds can cause a lot of pain. Poor fit also means poor sound quality.
