Besides playing music from your phone, the Pulse has sensors that measure your heart rate, and the companion app on your iPhone integrates that with your other workout data. Many fitness tracker bands and sports watches come with a heart rate monitor, but Jabra puts the heart rate sensor in a place that is not only convenient but also gives you very reliable readings: on the earbuds. They are ulta-small and ulta-portable, easy to pack in your bag when you travel. Amazing!
The app is quite simple, and makes it is easy for you to navigate between starting a session, reviewing your past workouts or exploring the other tracking options it offers. You can choose the source from which you want to play music, from another app, or from your phone’s library. I could even listen to my audiobook, though I don’t think many people would do that during running sessions.
