Under Armour Headphones Wireless review

36
Under Armour Headphones Wireless

Another partnership, and another piece in Under Armour's connected fitness ecosystem.

The benefits of wireless headphones are pretty clear for daily listening needs, but not having cords get in your way is basically a requirement when you're exercising. While wired headphones may be a simple annoyance when you're walking down the street, they could really hinder your ability to run, bike, hit the gym or engage in other sporting activities. And even though Bluetooth doesn't offer the same sound quality as a wire, it's a worthwhile trade-off in this situation.

Alongside the release of the HealthBox, Under Armour also announced a partnership with JBL to bring its audio expertise to the table in further connected fitness products. The new Under Armour Headphones Wireless are one of two products to come out of this new partnership. A light, comfortable and fitness-focused set of headphones seems to be a great companion to Under Armour's new connected fitness products — we're going to see how it works out in our full review.

Charge up your USB-C phones and tablets in a hurry with these USB-C power banks

22

Your USB-C devices deserve a power bank that can provide the proper 3-amp output, but pickin's are slim — even at this stage of the game.

There are a plethora of power banks with Quick Charge 2.0 technology inside, allowing many current smartphones to power-up significantly faster than the norm, but even that's not enough for what's in store for 2016. As devices continue to adopt USB-C as the new standard, the selection of compatible power banks that can push 3 amps is still minimal. We've dug-up a couple available options that will definitely meet your need for USB-C speeds.

Under Armour HealthBox review

18
Under Armour HealthBox

Nobody else is offering a connected fitness system like this — and if you're willing to pay, it can be yours.

The quick take

Android Central Choice Award

For an up-front $400 price, you get three connected fitness devices that can help you track just about everything in your life and help you reach your ambitious fitness goals. The UA Band, UA Scale and UA Heart Rate are set up to work together right out of the box, and keeping everything working couldn't be easier. The hardware is great, but the real glue is Under Armour's Record app, which can pull in data from all three sources, but also your existing apps and fitness gear. The HealthBox is very clearly targeted at those willing to spend a bit on serious fitness equipment, and in that market it has a real shot and winning over customers.

4

Staying protected from drops and scratches doesn't mean you have to compromise the look of your Galaxy S6.

Regular cases with solid colors are great for those that are okay with covering up their Samsung Galaxy S6, but a quality clear case can offer exceptional protection while still showing off your phone's original design. Some factors come into play with these transparent options like how the glossy finish will show fingerprints and scratches, but the main goal here is still to keep the Galaxy S6 itself free from damage. Let's check out some of our top choices.
