Plantronics seem to be making health and fitness a primary focus for their Bluetooth headphones. Now they are making sure you take notice of this by giving a free year of MapMyFitness MVP ($30.00 value) to anyone who purchases the Backbeat FIT through Amazon. Just make sure that it is shipped and sold by Amazon in the description otherwise it will not qualify for the promotion. MapMyFitness is an app that tracks the routes taken and calories burned during any run or workout using your mobile device. The MVP package even gives mobile coaching and training plans and, if you have a compatible heart rate monitor and a compatible phone, can give you feedback on cardiovascular fitness.
The BackBeat FIT use the same nano-coating found on the Backbeat Go 2 earbuds in order to make them sweat-proof and water resistant. Plantronics claim they have a battery life of 8 hours listening time and 6 hours of talk time, not bad if these are being used purely for exercise. They also come with a nifty smartphone armband that doubles as a carrying case for the headphones. The Backbeat FIT earbuds come in either green or blue and the case matches whichever pair you choose. This promotion is only available until February 15th so if you are a little late on your New Year’s resolution these could be the motivation needed to get you going. They can be found on Amazon ranging in price anywhere between $100.00 – $115.00, depending on the color.
