Amazon's Echo Buds can observe your exercises
If you want to keep track of your workouts, it is best to buy a fitness tracker or smartwatch. However, if you'd rather not wear a tracker or headphones / earphones, then you should get your hands on the Echo Buds from Amazon.
This is because, according to a report by CNBC, they have been informed by Amazon that they will release an update to the Echo Buds that will allow users to track their workouts. Headphones tracking workouts aren't new, but it's nice to see the Echo Buds have been added for those who already have them.
Granted, it may not necessarily have the same depth of functionality as a dedicated fitness tracker or smartwatch. However, if you're just looking for basic tracking and don't really need all of those extra stuff, this should be more than enough to get the job done. With the update of the Echo Buds, users can, for example, track the duration of their exercise, the number of steps, the calories burned, the speed of walking / running etc.
As we said earlier, these are pretty standard features that you can expect from a fitness tracker. However, if that's all you need then you should consider the Echo Buds.
