Wearable technology, it’s a thing now. Apple’s smartwatch might monitor your health, Google plans to make smart contact lenses, the list is endless. The Dash ($199), while not revolutionary, takes a small step into the future with these in-ear Bluetooth headphones. They have all the requisite headphone features: noise cancellation, 4GB of onboard storage, ear bone transduction microphone.
What sets it apart are the in-built health and body sensors. These help track your heart rate, oxygen saturation and energy expenditure. What they haven’t figured out is how to keep us from losing headphones. There’s a reason most cost $10.
