Jabra Sport Pulse Special Edition

In 2014, Jabra opened a new frontier in fitness monitoring with the unveiling of the Jabra Sport Pulse in-ear heart monitoring headphones. Two years later, Jabra is pushing the bar upwards with the introduction of a Special Edition version of their critically acclaimed device. Aspects of fit, sound, and durability have been updated, and smart new sports features have been added.

Firstbeat Features

Fitness Level VO2max
VO2 Max is a scientific way to measure your absolute fitness. It describes the maximum rate of oxygen that your body consumes during exercise, and helps determine your endurance level. Analyzing your VO2 Max levels can be used to enhance your performance. For instance, a 5% improvement in your VO2 Max score would typically cut 5 minutes off of your 10k run time!

Training Effect
Training Effect (TE) is a measure of how a workout impacts on your fitness level on a scale of 1.0 to 5.0. All cardio workouts generate a Training Effect. It is calculated based on your estimated VO2max, training history, your maximum heart rate and heart rate data from your workout.

Training Effect accumulates throughout the duration of a workout. When you finish your workout, you are presented with a resulting TE score and classification.

A fit person has to train harder to achieve a given Training Effect than a less fit person. Two people completing the same workout are likely to achieve different Training Effect values because they usually have differences in training history, VO2max and intensity during the workout.
