One unique feature that sets these earphones apart from other devices available today is the ability to generate oxygen saturation levels with a built-in pulse oximeter (pulse ox) sensor. The sensor measures oxygen carried on hemoglobin within the blood, passed through the concha bowl area (the external cartilage behind the ear) to provide an oxygen saturation level reading (Sp02). This reading level provides both casual and avid athletes with real-time feedback on how their body processes oxygen and assists in monitoring progress made during physical activity.
"We are excited to enter an agreement with Freewavz to deliver this unique hearable device to the market. We feel the pulse ox feature coupled with other popular fitness and audio features sets us apart from devices offered today and provides us with a unique entrée into the growing health and fitness category," said
The Freewavz earphones are ergonomically designed to fit the natural curvature of the ear for perfect fit and function. Designed by an ENT doctor, these small, light-weight earphones rest comfortably around the tops of the ears with no wires to interfere with your favorite exercises. Integrated with pulse oximeters and 3-axis accelerometers, the earphones have the ability to track a variety of fitness metrics such as oxygen saturation, heart rate, calories burned, steps, current and average speed, distance traveled, and duration of work out. Equipped with Bluetooth technology to stream music while simultaneously beaming fitness data to a smartphone device in real-time, provides users with accurate feedback for achieving optimal performance.
The interactive mobile app will be compatible with Android and iOS devices, allowing users to create custom exercise profiles based on specific feedback selected, graph fitness results overtime, hear performance updates and notifications audibly, and create a customized listening experience with five-frequency equalizer settings and independent volume control for each ear.
