Years of polishing its skills on crafting fitness trackers, Fitbit is finally making a move to join the wireless audio market. Although this comes as a big surprise for a lot of its consumers, feedback is mostly positive. It’s important for companies to branch out elsewhere eventually, and the direction it’s taking appears to be on the right track. It’s high time for it to shake up the wearable tech segment with something totally different. The Fitbit Flyer is the brand’s first venture into the world of Bluetooth headphones.
Among fitness trackers, Fitbit quickly comes to mind for a lot of people. On the other hand, this is the first time the brand is investing in something other than activity trackers. Nonetheless, longtime users of its products will be glad to finally own a pair of wireless earphones to match their wearable. Let’s begin by pointing out that this is more of a traditional design. You have two earbuds with a wire connecting both ends. This could be a deal-breaker for those who are after a true-wireless experience but does not affect performance.
In order to match your active lifestyle, the Fitbit Flyer is resistant to all types of moisture that come with the territory. Moreover, the package includes several ear tips and accessories that you can combine together for a secure fit. Therefore, you can be sure that it will survive even the most grueling workouts in your menu. Sound quality is likewise top-notch with the right blend of bass, dynamic range, and distinct clarity. A full battery lasts up 6 hours, while the quick charge feature gives you an hour of juice after a 15-minute charge.
