This earpiece and boom attaches to eyewear and connects wirelessly to sensors using the ANT+ standard, which can measure data such as an athlete’s heart rate or the speed of a bicycle. The sensors can deliver information via synthesized speech or a visual signal on the boom, which has a series of seven LEDs that can alert a wearer who is straying out of a desired performance window. Users can cycle between sensors by tapping the earpiece.
