As the name suggest, you can just connect your smartphone with earbuds and it will start tracking the steps and heart tracking. When not in use, one can put it in a pill-shaped case, which provides up to full two charge. Samsung says the headphones will last about one and half hour when streaming music from a phone, or just three and half hours when playing music directly from the IconX’s internal 4 GB memory.

The compatibility of Gear IconX starts with Android 4.4 and up and it requires the minimum of 1.5GB of RAM (Sorry, no iOS support at launch). Samsung is actually pitching IconX as a more of an fitness tracking device than a wireless earbuds. All the data that is measured in IconX will be synchronized in S health app.

The Gear IconX will be available to purchase for $199 late this year in three colours- blue, white and black.
