There aren"t many rep counting devices out there, but we"ve sầu spent time with two of the most notable, the GymWatch và the Atlas Wristb& wrist-worn wearables.

Priced at £99, the Coach Special Edition is significantly cheaper than the Pulse Sport, but still a pricey investment for anyone on the look out for a pair of smarter sports headphones.

We"ve been sweating it out doing lunges, burpees and planking to see if the Jabra Coach Special Edition is worth spending the money on.

It"s the same set of sweat-proof, in-ear buds with a connected single wire & an inline remote on the right side of the cable. The outside of the left earphone houses the Sport button that you can press to lớn launch activity tracking from the Jabra Sport Life ứng dụng.

Pairing with your smartphone over công nghệ Bluetooth không dây is still a painless process. Simply press and hold the middle button on the inline remote & a voice prompt will quickly signal that it"s jumped inlớn pairing mode. We had no problems pairing it with an iPhone 6 or a Note 7 & it worked without any problems when paired to lớn the TomTom Spark 3 running watch as well.

The only real big difference here is that Jabra has decided lớn include a set of Comply foam ear buds, so there"s more variety in terms of fit. We certainly didn"t have any issues with the standard silicone ones, but it"s always nice lớn have sầu the option khổng lồ switch things up. These are are a comfortable pair of sports headphones và they bởi not budge when you"re working out.

Jabra Thể Thao Coach: Activity tracking

*

While Jabra"s in-ears can be used as a standard pair of Công nghệ Bluetooth headphones, it"s the tracking smarts that we are really interested in here. On the first Coach headphones, the onboard motion sensor (accelerometer) was able to traông xã things like distance, pace, steps và cadence. It can still vị that & when paired up against a dedicated running watch again, the data accuracy still holds up.

The big story here though is the automatic rep counting. It"s something we wished was included in the first Coach headphones và Jabra"s CEO even hinted that we would see more from its motion sensor. Now we"ve sầu got it.

So how does it work? Well, the first thing you need to vày is install the Jabra Sport Life tiện ích to your phone. Once that"s done you"ll be able khổng lồ get khổng lồ grips with one of the best companion apps we"ve sầu had the pleasure of using.

To find a workout that supports automatic rep counting you need to head to the cross-training section, where you can pick from a range of workouts with names lượt thích CardiCore, BellyBurn and MadChip Core. A small arrow ibé indicates which workouts tư vấn the new feature. There are eight pre-loaded circuits in total but you can create your own custom ones as well, to lớn help keep things varied.

Once you select a workout, you can see a breakdown of all the individual exercises, how many reps are dedicated khổng lồ each exercise và how long you get lớn rest in between. You can also hit the info ibé alongside each exercise to lớn see a Clip on how khổng lồ persize it correctly. That"s particularly useful if you"re a fitness beginner.

Circuits are a mix of rep counting exercises and timed exercises and range in duration. Crucially, they do give you a serious workout. Even the short burst sessions really push you so there are no question marks over whether you are really going khổng lồ burn those calories. Pressing the Sport button when prompted activates the motion tracking & means the reps can now be counted.

As far as accuracy is concerned, we were pleasantly surprised by how well it worked. Exercises lượt thích press ups & sit ups were accurately measured. We put it up against the rep counting Atlas Wristbvà và it was spot on. There are a couple of exercises that vày pose some issues for the automatic rep counting though, notably ones that require plenty of space like burpees. So make sure you have room to get the full benefits of a workout. On the whole though, the motion sensor delivers on its promise.

Jabra Sport Coach: Sound quality

*

If there"s one thing you don"t need to lớn worry about, it"s audio chất lượng. The tinny, unbalanced sports headphones of old are well & truly a thing of the past. The Coach are up there with top over in-ears for performance.

There"s plenty of power, warm bass & detail making them well equipped for up-tempo tracks or audiobooks. The passive noise cancellation is a strong performer as well, letting you drown out the ambient noise if you prefer lớn zone out and focus in on the music. Like the Sport Pulse, these are great sounding headphones.

As Jabra is something of a headmix expert, it"s no surprise lớn find out that when you need to lớn take a call midway during your workout, the voice Gọi quality is exceptionally clear and also copes well in busy environments if you"re out running with them.

Jabra Sport Coach: Battery life

We weren"t big fans of the battery life on the original Coach và you shouldn"t expect much improvement with the Special Edition version.

Jabra claims you should get 5 hours of play time, which is slightly down from 5.5 hours on the original và it definitely lives up (or down) to lớn that number. It"s disappointing when the Pulse Sport can manage khổng lồ squeeze out a few more hours.

It will get you through an hour gym session no problem, but if you"re using it for your commute as well và a little more during the day, you might find yourself charging it more regularly than you"d lượt thích.

It"s charged via Micro USB at least, & is a relatively quick charger as well when you vị run out of power.
