Samsung Gear IconX (Cord-free Fitness Earbud) - Review and Price on Amazon

Samsung has recently joined the activity of cordless hearable device with the release of the Gear IconX cordless free fitness earbud designed to key you more connected not only with music but also with your fitness. The Gear IconX is designed with Wingtip and Eartip to enable stay put in the ear while you jump, run and carryon with life.
The earbuds can be use to accurately track the duration of your workout, as well as your speed, distance, calories burned and heart rate, and efficiently relay the information to your ear via motivating notifications recorded by real people. It works in a cool fashion way like swipe (for volume up and down), single tap (for play and pause), triple tap (for previous track).
The Samsung Gear IconX has a storage of 4GB that can carry up to 1,000 songs and a charging case to keep them powered. And amazingly, if the battery runs down on one of the earbuds you can assign controls to the other one with power and carry on listening.

For the fitness tracking, the IconX has an in build accelerometer and heart rate monitor that is smart enough to track your activity and give updates on essential data from speed, distance and duration to heart rate and calories burnt via a dedicated voice guide.

Please note: The heart rate monitor is the one intended for fitness purposes, and not the one intended to diagnose any disease, treatment or cure any disease.
With a case that doubles as a charger, you can power the Samsung Gear IconX while it's resting, the charging case is very important as the Gear IconX can only last for one and half hour while playing from your phone and up to three hours while playing musics that are stored in the earbud.
