Fitbit will soon sell its own headphones for your workouts

Fitbit just revealed its first ever smartwatch – it's called the Fitbit Ionic and we've had the chance to play around with it – but it is also providing new fitness based devices called the Flyer and the Aria 2.

The Fitbit Flyer is the first time the company has entered the headphones market and is a wireless Bluetooth headset primarily designed for gym use and running. 

The fitness focused headphones are sweatproof so you won’t ruin the internals when your brow starts dripping. but according to Fitbit they should also offer "premium sound quality" too.

There’s a three button controller on the wire and you’ll be able to adjust the cable for your comfort, plus there's the standard variety of ear tips, wings and fins in the box that we've come to expect from in-ear headphones.

The Fitbit Flyer will be available from October this year.

Fitbit also included two sound profiles – one is called signature sound and then there's a Power Boost Mode that ups the bass to help motivate you in the hardest parts of your workout.

It’s compatible with digital assistants and can pair with two devices at the same time so you can have it connected to your Fitbit Ionic smartwatch and your phone. Fitbit estimates six hours of playtime, which is a little below average life for a headset of this type.

Plus smart scales

Fitbit is also upgrading its smart scale range too with a new product called the Aria 2. It's a new version of Fitbit’s scales that launched back in 2010, but the new version will now have a more streamlined design and a brighter display.

Fitbit has improved the algorithms behind the measurements so it should be more accurate than ever at measuring your weight and it’s easy to setup with Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi.

Fitbit Aria 2 smart scales will be on sale in October this year.
