Another thing with a battery (15-minute charge for one hour of use), official ruggedness (IP 54 rated) and app integration (Sport Life app) has appeared at IFA, with the Jabra Sport Pace hoping to become the go-to-get-and-wear thing people who go running use to listen to Chvrches or whatever else is fashionable right now.
They're wireless, if you don't count THE WIRE that joins them to each other, also connecting to the maker's Jabra Sport Life app to somehow enhance training, running and even brisk walks to buy sweets and beer and crisps, plus we'd imagine the headset would also work while sitting lifelessly on a bus that you're only on because you have nothing else to do and your life isn't like the ones in the technology brochures.
Jabra claims the Sport Pace is good for 5hrs talk and music time, which should get you through an entire marathon as long as you're practised a bit during the fortnight leading up to it. It's available in late October for £79.99. [Jabra]
