CES 2015 is upon us from Las Vegas with countless tech inventions and innovations to captivate us all week!
Wearables, wearables, wearables! The idea of turning everything you wear into a smart device has caught on with many companies trying to distinguish themselves through innovation in both design and technology. Wearables have expanded beyond just smartwatches, however. Bragi has introduced “The Dash” at CES 2015, a wireless ear-bud style headphone that has all the features of a smartwatch and more.
Let’s start with a few tech specs of “The Dash”, it is a pair of earbuds that connect simultaneously to your phone and each other wirelessly. These earbuds feature touch control, 4GB of onboard storage and a battery life rated for 3.5-hours. The Dash will appeal to the fitness crowd with its inclusion of an accelerometer, heart rate monitor and even a oxygen saturation sensor. Further niche features include the option to hear ambient noise, personal trainer feedback and in the future real time language translation. The Dash is able to do everything from basics like skip a track to sending advanced fitness data back to a smartphone of your choice whether it be Android or iOS.
“The Dash” is already available to early backers of a KickStarter campaign. General availability is scheduled for Spring 2015 with a price tag of $300.
Far beyond your traditional earbuds and a new take on wearables Bragi’s “The Dash” is our favorite product of CES Day 1 2015. Rest assured Plastic Mobile will bring you a Tech Pick of the day at CES 2015 for the rest of the week!
