Fitness Friday: BT Wearables

January 30, 2015

Last weekend I finally got out for my first winter run. I was so excited to be able to hit the (snow covered) pavement again, find my groove and feel the crisp winter air in my lungs. The other thing I was excited for was to not have to struggle with getting tangled in the cord for my earphones. I was given the chance to try out BT Wearables Bluetooth Headband. I was blown away by how easy to use and comfortable this head band was. All you need to do is charge it up by plugging into your laptop, sync it to your phone, hit play and go. The sound quality was perfect and it covered my ears so I didn’t get an ear ache, which normally happens when I run in the cold without covering them. You can easily take out the earphone pieces to and toss the headband in the wash so you never have to worry about the sweat accumulation, haha. This isn’t something I would normally spend money on, but the little difference not having to wrestle with cords during my run maybe it so much more enjoyable.

Yoga if Liam is at his dad’s.

It’s looking to be a busy day but I’m hoping I can get out for another Sunday Runday.

    ahhh! I need these!

    My mom brought me a pair of wireless headphones but they didn’t work and Best Buy apparently doesn’t take back headphones. It’s a little frustrating to spend money on something that doesn’t do the job! I was excited to not have to deal with cords when running.

    Have a great weekend Hun! 🙂

    Earphones that actually stay put in my ears would make my workouts much more enjoyable.

    I currently just wear a Walmart headband with my earbuds and it always slides into a weird position and my ears get cold! These would definitely solve that problem.

    This looks like a cool product!
    Well fitted workout clothing make my workouts more enjoyable. I hate running and having pants that are too loose or a top thats a big too snug, etc.

    These would definitely make my workouts a little better, I’m always grabbing the cord from my headphones! I think a new sports bra would also be helpful!

      Haha, well I only brought it back because it was SO nice out. But today, I’m not going out when it’s -20 and so much snow. I’m not that committed. The feature will return again though and I’m excited that you want to join!

    These are so cool, would be great for runs! These would make workouts better! And a washroom in the basement. I always have to pee mid-workout. ha Love all your workout pics.

    Warm ears and avoiding getting your arm caught in your headphones and pulling them out – sounds pretty good to me.

    Also, even when the rest of me is warm, I get cold toes. I need to invest in some better socks.

    Nice! I bought a hat that had built in headphones but you still needed to plug them into your ipod/iphone. This would be way better!!

    New workout clothes always make my workouts more enjoyable! More expensive though 😉

    Good job on your workouts!! Nice headstand!

    Hmmm I want to enter this, but the raffle copter has been stuck on ‘engaging thrusters’ for the past two days, so I can’t seem to.

      That’s strange. It seems to be ok on my end. Let me know if it still doesn’t work and I will enter you 🙂

    A friend to help pass the miles is always welcome to make the run more fun. When I run alone, my biggest pet peeve is my headphone chords being in the way.
