The Jabra Sport Coach is designed to be simple and easy to use. The additional EarWing allows the earbuds to fit nicely into the curves of the ear, securing it in place. Additionally, the Jabra Sport Coach is also Sweat and Weather resistant. It is built to IP55 standards, so that you can do any kinds of exercises without thinking too much about damaging the headset.
The Jabra Sports Life App
As the name suggests, the Jabra Sport Coach is a product that is catered to sports enthusiasts who want to listen to music while working out. The Jabra Sports Life App can be download directly from the Apple App Store, or the Android Play Store. A unique activation code that can be found within the Jabra Sport Coach package is required for the usage of the Jabra Sports Life App.
With the App installed, we found ourselves working out in no time at all, with its user friendly interface and interesting features. We tried out a running feature within the app, which tested the performance of a runner. A simple run allowed me to gather information such as the calories that I burnt as well as the average pace that I was moving, as well as the actual distance covered. These were not previously possible without any smartphones.
Within the App is also a feature called “Cooper test” that tests the distance that one can cover within 12 minutes. It is a great tool to use to track your performance, and see how much you are improving as the number of runs increases. It can be seen from the test that the pace has been dropping from the start, and I could probably do something to improve my endurance.
Moreover, Jabra Sports Life also has a real time audio coaching feature, which essentially is a set of circuit training activities. Now, you can actually have your personal coach telling you the different exercises to do that are the best for you. The video below shows how the feature works.
Despite all the greatness packed within the earbuds, there was a small issue that we were facing. Because of the relatively long cable that connects the left earbud to the right earbud, we found that it can actually be quite annoying and inconvenient, especially when running. The cable tends to hop around and dangles around your neck, possibly distracting you from your training.
