First BT5.0 TWS Earphones with WBD101's Heart Rate Sensing Technology

HONG KONG, - October 09, 2019 - VIMAI launches the world's first TWS earphones with in-ear heart rate sensing (EP-017) that uses the same heart rate sensing design as the JBL Reflect Fit and the Pioneer SEC-S801BT. This sports and true wireless earphones has proven to be very accurate when compared to the chestbelt.

As the competition between earphones of similar price points gets tougher, Vimai integrates the ActivHearts™ heart rate sensing into the EP-017 to differentiate itself in the TWS earphones market. Besides Vimai's competitive price point, consumers can also expect features like high definition acoustics, water & sweat proof materials and excellent Bluetooth connection performance.

According to Market Research Report, the first five-year cumulative revenue (2017-2021) of Hearables globally is projected to be over US$ 85 Bn, with a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. Smart sensing earphones, over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids and medical grade hearing aids currently dominate the Hearables Market. The market is actively pursuing innovation to improve listening capability, human physiological sensing, artificial intelligence and connection to the web for data processing.

"It's more convenient to obtain your heart rate from earphones than compared to looking at your smartwatch from time to time when you are running, because you can listen to music and receive audio coaching concurrently," says Kow Ping, Executive Director of WBD101. "You can also conserve the battery of your Apple Watch by using the earphones' Heart Rate sensing instead."

The EP-017 TWS hearable has additional features like IPX5, which provides water and sweat proofing, as well as instant pairing and microphones for phone calls. In additional, its playtime can be up to 3.5 hours per charging cycle and the re-chargeable battery case can support an additional 4 charging cycles at full capacity; resulting in a total of 17.5 hours playtime with a fully charged battery case. The Bluetooth 5.0 chipset from Qualcomm provides better compatibility with many smartphones and has a better transmission range while using lesser power than compared to the traditional Bluetooth 4.2x chipset.

Last but not least, the EP-017 TWS earphones heart rate sensing accuracy has been tested against chestbelts, demonstrating high accuracy even under strenuous running of up to 15km/h and 190 beats per minute heart rate. It has also been tested to be compatible with most heart rate enabled fitness apps in both iOS and Android platforms. Users can easily obtain their heart rate readings directly to their smartphones for data analysis and receive real-time coaching.
