Both wearables have an inbuilt dual MEMS microphone that guarantees excellent call clarity.

“LG has invested a lot in research and development around wearable technology to ensure we deliver revolutionary audio products to our consumers,” said LG Kenya Assistant Manager Marketing & Corporate Communications, Ms. Maureen Kemunto.

So why bother this about audio wearables? Especially if you never got yourself anything on Valentines LOL.

Well, a recent study by the Business Insider has shown that people who listen to music when they exercise are likely to burn more calories. It seems listening to uplifting beats whether through radio or audio wearables can improve motivation and prevent boredom while exercising.

Experts say that wearable technology that comes in various shapes and sizes offers the next generation of multipurpose smart technology that consumers crave. With larger mobile devices taking priority position in the hand and taking up more space in the bag or pocket, consumers are turning to versatile gadgets that can be worn to enhance convenience and save on precious space.
