DASH for a New Workout Partner

For me the most awkward part of working out is what to do with the wire from my headphones. I have even resorted to weaving the wire through the sleeves and neck of my shirt so it will be under my shirt and out of the way.

Necessity is definitely the mother of invention, BRAGI a Munich based company which holds over 90 patents and has won over 100 design awards introduces The Dash a smart wireless headphone created by Danish entrepreneur Nikolaj Hvlid, former Head of Design at a leading audio company. Beyond playing music through its internal 4GB/1000 song player it can also connect to a smartphone. The effectiveness of the user’s workout can be tracked including pace, steps, cadence, distance, heart rate, oxygen saturation and energy spent. All of this can be tracked with or without being connected to a smartphone. Health, safety and entertainment are all combined in one headset.

The DASH is also a Bluetooth headset using an embedded ear bone microphone which provides impressive sound quality. On top of that, the DASH offers noise reduction and with a finger swipe ambient sound can be routed to the headphones allowing the user to have quiet or easily be back in touch with his or her surroundings.

Potential for the DASH is limitless; when the DASH is released there will be a free iOS and Android App. Developers will also be able to order kits to obtain access to processed and unprocessed data feeds which would allow the DASH to be customized to the user’s needs. 

It will not be long until I will be able to work out and not worry about the wire to my head phones and be able to monitor how efficient the work out is.
