All functionality applicable for swimming using the waterproof Silicone Skin Accessory [bought separately]. A tested methodology which delivers great audio above and below the water and for consistently vigorous swimming.
A first for the sports world, the VR1 Wireless Smart Sport Headphones are sweat/rainproof, wire free, lightweight and super comfortable new training aid. Designed in the UK, they provide the user with both high quality music and the luxury of having their own personal trainer to customize any workout for any activity, including swimming. The first thing that differentiates the VR1 from similar, or fully waterproof headphones, is the music quality. An extra amp boosts bass, depth and volume and the speakers are not compromised at all by waterproofing. The Programmable Personal Trainer facility allows the user to customize any workout with instruction, time notifications and motivational messages in their own words. This is done using the simple and free software downloaded from the FX-Sport website. Alternatively, download great pre-prepared workouts from the FX-Sport "WORKOUT STORE" and upload directly onto the headphones. All sessions are verified by nationally certified personal trainers. Weight training, interval bike sessions, fartlek running, circuits, etc can all be downloaded for free and saved on the software. This provides a library of training sessions for speedy uploading in the future. Fantastic quality music is produced by the integrated 8GB mp3 player which uses text to speech software to read and voice album names or playlists to the user, using the buttons on the right headphone. This way there is no need for a screen which can be impractical whilst training and no need to carry a secondary unit. The mp3 player is compatible with mp3, wma and aac [m4a] formats. Bass and treble settings can also be customized via the software. All unique functionality still applies for swimming using the FX-Sport silicone skin accessory and swim cap [bought separately] to make the VR1 fully waterproof. This methodology allows great quality music [and training messages] to be heard consistently even with vigorous swimming and over time. The product is Patent Pending.
