Intel has developed a reference design for smart earbuds that provide biometric and fitness information. The product is aimed at fitness enthusiasts and is unique for being built into an accessory that many people already wear when they exercise — stereo earbuds.

The Intel smart earbuds provide full stereo audio, and monitor heart rate and pulse, while the applications on the user’s phone keep track of run distance and calories burned. The product also includes Intel- developed software that enables users to precision-tune workouts and acts as a coach, automatically selecting music that matches the target heart rate profile.
