Smart workout gear has exploded in popularity as of late, with the downside being the added stuff you’re now forced to wear and/or take with you. With Dash Wireless Smart Earphones ($199), you get the intelligence of the latest fitness technology in a package small enough to fit in your ears, and nothing else. For fitness tracking, Dash Earphones includes a movement tracker that logs pace, steps, cadence and distance along with heart rate, oxygen saturation and energy spent. More importantly, it works without a smartphone and provides real time feed back during your activity. As for music, Dash includes 4GB of storage to hold up to 1,000 songs, again without the need to carry a separate MP3 player. For those unwilling to part with their phone/MP3 player, you can hook them up wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled device, and an on-board microphone allows them to serve double duty as a hands-free Bluetooth headset. Awesome, I know.
