Fitness Watches Aren’t Half as Pretty as Fitness Earrings

 |  |  |  November 15, 2014


Wearable tech is all the rage, but there are a lot of other bits of your wardrobe that still can be technified. We are free to worry about our watches, shirts, pants, compression gear, arm bands, head bands, and rings running out of batteries, but what about earrings? Why aren’t the ladies, and some gentlemen, worried about their earrings dying yet? In all seriousness, a fitness earring isn’t a bad idea; it’s small, lightweight, and unobtrusive, which is exactly what you want a wearable to be.

The only real problem is that the Ear-O-Smart is called Ear-O-Smart, which comes across as a purported miracle hearing aid from 1953. Poor nomenclature aside, the earring contain sensors that measure activity level, heartbeat, and estimated calories burned that is transmitted to a phone via bluetooth. It runs on a coin cell battery, but the creator is working on a rechargeable, lithium ion version. Backers to the Ear-O-Smart’s Kickstarter campaign can get a pair for $125(USD) or a customizable DIY kit for $150.
