AirPods Pro claim has arrived. A claim about AirPods Pro focused on fitness tracking was created by Mark Gurman, who works at Bloomberg.
When it comes to TWS headphones, Apple has its AirPods as well AirPods Pro models for a while. According to Bloomberg employee Mark Gurman, Apple will announce new versions of the two headphone models next year. Some sensors used in Apple Watch are integrated into AirPods. Headphone owners get a number of features, such as heart rate measurement.
Report: Preparing an Entry-Level AirPods Kit
The report, created by Bloomberg, has reiterated previous claims that Apple is preparing a new set of entry-level AirPods with a design inspired by the existing one. AirPods Pro end of 2021.
Bloomberg claims that the AirPods Pro headphones will feature updated motion sensors that focus on fitness tracking, citing more knowledgeable people on the subject. The company has a long history of focusing on fitness, dating back to 2006 when it introduced the Nike + partnership. So I can say adding fitness tracking to it AirPods Pro headphones would be a logical move for Apple. Because Nike is one of the leading sports shoe companies.
Since 2006, Apple has expanded fitness significantly with the Apple Watch, which has multiple sensors to track steps, heart rate, and blood oxygen levels. With these fitness features came the Apple Fitness + subscription service, which allows them to track exercise routines managed by experts on iPhone, iPad or Apple TV with data recorded by Apple Watch. Another problem arises here: Since the Apple Watch is an expensive device, people want to take advantage of this service without having to use an Apple Watch. Unfortunately, such a situation does not exist.
AirPods Pro aren’t the first headphones to use a fitness sensor
Add additional sensors to AirPods Pro can eliminate the use of an Apple Watch or, if used with the Apple Watch, improve the accuracy of data such as the current heart rate. It is not the first time that Apple has come up with the idea to place a fitness sensor in the headphones. Elite Sport earbuds from the Jabra brand, released in 2017, have built-in heart rate monitors. In addition, there were similar technologies in the headphones that the Samsung and Bose companies had produced in the past. Recently, Amazon added basic activity tracking to the second generation Amazon Echo Buds.
