Vi Personal Trainer: Never Run Alone Again!

Vi Personal Trainer Earbuds Have Artificial Intelligence And Act As Your Workout Buddy.

Vi Personal Trainer is one of the most inventive devices to hit the fitness wearable market in the last few years. It is the most personal, personal trainer that “lives” in bio-sensing earphones. The future is truly here.

Before I enlighten you more about this new product, let’s take a short trip down the memory lane of fitness trackers.

The first training gadgets were called pedometers and counted steps. They were often simple and small devices you could have in your pocket. Then the more advanced activity tracker bands came along and could do much more like monitor distance, sleep, calories burned and motivate you to move more.

Now, almost all fitness trackers have built-in heart rate monitors or can be paired up with chest straps. Things do go forward!

These days it seems like the new craze is that the fitness gadgets should act more like personal trainers. Not that they haven’t done that before in one way or another, but now they talk and give you audio feedback when you workout. I have previously written about the Moov Now who has this function.

But now it’s time to present to you the awesome Vi, from LifeBEAM.

Communicative Biosensing Earphones – No Way!

It is designed to make workouts more inspiring, fun and effective. You can think of it like a friend that is dedicated to your fitness and helps you attain the most difficult fitness goals. All you have to do is power these headphones on and she comes to life.

Unlike any other trainer, Vi tracks your daily activities, understands your workout routines and coaches you to achieve real, tangible results. It can help you meet your grueling weight goals, improve your running, cycling and training, and evolves over time to help you with your future fitness goals.

All this and you can enjoy your favorite music or talk on the phone without having to press a button. This is the ultimate hands-free AI personal trainer that will give you real-time insights on your body and workout regime.

The product’s impressive design and stunning performance were the reason behind the company successfully raising more than $1.6 million in just 48 days on Kickstarter. The goal was to develop the First True Artificial Intelligence Personal Trainer. That’s an impressive goal, but it seems nothing is impossible nowadays. I’m not sure whether it is written the ‘Vi’, the ‘Vi,’ or the ‘Vi.’. I think I will stick to just Vi.

Elegant sound and ergonomic design

Vi Personal Trainer’s bio-sensing headphones are powered by Harman/Kardon audio and they produce crisp, clear and deep sounds for one of the best listening experience. It truly feels like you are listening to some expensive professional-level headphones.

The design team went for the best audio system to ensure Vi’s voice and immersive sound reach breathtaking performance levels. Vi uses aerospace-grade biosensors to get more precise measurements than almost all the wearables available in the market. The ergonomic design lets the bio-sensing headphones monitor the user’s heart rate, elevation, time, cadence, speed, and location with ease.

This is how it looks.

A warm human voice

Vi has a wonderful, calm human voice that talks to you while you work out. The warm tone of her voice will make you forget that she is an AI and you will soon start thinking about her as your personal fitness coach. She speaks beautifully and actively responds to each and every command while inspiring you to finish your predetermined goals.

She has all the answers to questions related to your training sessions and heart rate and even motivates you to reach the finish line with words such as, “You got this. Just 10 more feet!”. Vi Personal Trainer is designed to assist you with all types of running exercises and chores.

Whether you are practicing for your first ever marathon or are striving hard to shave a couple seconds off your record time, Vi will adapt itself to your fitness regime and personalize each workout session for your benefit.

From when you wake up in the morning to the time you sleep at night, you will enjoy the wonderful-sounding music, easily answer your phone calls with a voice command and the all-day activity tracking feature will let you know exactly how much calories you burned in your day. You can also answer your phone calls by simply placing the earbuds in your ear.

Vi Personal Trainer is also well versed with managing exhaustion and preventing injuries, and will not shy away from stopping you when she thinks you have had enough for a day. It also monitors your heart rate to ensure it stays in the ideal heart rate zone.
