Samsung launches Gear IconX

samsung-gearxSamsung Electronics Australia has introduced the Gear IconX. The wireless earbuds are designed to help people achieve their fitness goals through its heart rate monitor and Bluetooth connectivity to Samsung’s S-Health mobile fitness app via a compatible Samsung device.

The Gear IconX earbuds are an accessory for physical training sessions, designed to track heart rate, distance, speed, and duration, while also calculating calories burned based on activity levels.


Activated by simply placing them in-ear, the Gear IconX earbuds are designed to track fitness data automatically, meaning consumers can just put them in and go. Progress can be easily monitored long-term by transferring and managing recorded data via a compatible Samsung smartphone between workouts.

Gear IconX also offers Voice Guide, which provides instant in-ear feedback on performance, and utilises the earbuds’ built-in heart rate monitor to help people stay in the Vigorous Intensity Zone for an effective training session.

Designed to be comfortable for the specific needs of the user, the Gear IconX earbuds offer small, medium and large eartip and wingtip sizes, to help provide a secure fit for all.

With storage providing enough room for up to 1,000 songs, these earbuds enable you to leave your smartphone at home and still take their music with you – a simple tap or swipe is all that’s needed for play/pause, song navigation and volume control. Gear IconX’s Ambient Sound Mode  helps the user to be more aware of sounds around them while exercising.

Key features of Gear IconX include:

  • Automatic fitness data tracking
  • 4GB of internal storage (up to 3.5GB user-accessible memory), store up to 1,000 songs
  • Voice Guide provides in-ear feedback on performance
  • Ambient Sound Mode to help increase awareness
  • Convenient charging case that not only keeps the Gear IconX earbuds safe, but also allows for up to two additional battery recharges that begin automatically when the earbuds are placed inside

The Gear IconX earbuds are compatible with a range of Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6, as well as other devices running Android 4.4 + with 1.5GB ram.

Gear IconX are available now with an RRP of $279 from Samsung Experience Stores,, and will appear in other retailers in early August.
