The Jabra Sport line of training earbuds expands with the new Sport Pace Wireless

Jabra Sport Pace Wireless
Jabra is no stranger to fitness-focused earbuds. In June the company announced the Jabra Sport Coach earbuds, and last year it introduced the Jabra Sport Pulse, which featured a built-in heartrate tracker. Now the company is adding a new product to its Sport line of earbuds.

The Jabra Sport Pace offers many of the same features found in previous entries in the line, along with a few changes. Perhaps the biggest alteration in the Sport Pace however is the price. At $100, this is the cheapest entry so far in Jabra’s Sport line.

“We now have a complete range of unique sports audio solutions that can help people train, whatever their needs,” Jabra CEO René Svendsen-Tune said in a press release. “From advanced runners, who benefit from in-ear heart rate monitoring, over cross trainers, who take advantage of in-ear coaching and motion sensoring — to training aspirers, who need training tips. All with the combination of best-in-class sound technology and a purpose-built app. Jabra now has an offering that delivers a choice for everybody to enhance their sports experience.”

The Jabra Sport Pace in action

As the Sport Pace Wireless are meant for runners, they’re obviously sweat-proof, but they’re also resistant to wind, rain, and impact, meeting IP 54 and U.S. military standards. The cable between the left and right sides is also reflective to provide better visibility for those running at night. The over-ear hooks keep the earbuds snug no matter how intense the workout, and with a light weight of only 21 grams, you’ll barely feel them.

Jabra’s Sport Life app is the key to the fitness tracking features. The app helps to monitor your pace and calories burned, as well as the distance and route of your run using your phone’s GPS. It also has a built-in fitness test to help buyers keep track of their development. The Sport Life app integrates with third-party fitness apps as well, helping users track progress across multiple apps and platforms.

The lower price does come with a few tradeoffs. You won’t get the heartrate monitoring of the Sport Pulse or the advanced coaching found in the Sport Coach, but if you don’t need those features and want to save $50, these might be worth a look.

The Jabra Sport Pace Wireless will be available starting this fall at Best Buy, Target, and Dick’s Sporting Goods locations.
