The Jabra Sport Coach is retailing in Singapore for S$248 and is available in three colors, Blue, Red and Yellow. It is sort of the younger sibling of the Jabra Sport Pulse (S$298) which I reviewed back in May 2015.
Coach vs Pulse
The Jabra Sport Coach is S$50 cheaper because it doesn’t come with the in-ear heart rate monitor of the Jabra Sport Pulse. Surprisingly, the dimensions and weight of both the Coach and Pulse are the same, measuring about 18mm x 21mm x 32mm (H x W x D) and weighing 16g. I guess the weight of the Pulse’s in-ear heart rate monitor is being replaced by the Coach’s TrackFit Motion Sensor. The TrackFit Motion Sensor measures your distance, pace, steps, cadence and calories burned more accurately for cross-training and running.
The 42mm Sport Band is retailing for £39 (S$83) in the UK before tax refund. In Singapore, it is retailing for S$78.
The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds is retailing in Singapore for S$298. It is a Bluetooth 4.0 wireless in-ear earphones with a built-in in-ear heart rate monitor. According to the specifications, the heart rate monitor has a 99.2% accuracy when compared to a medical electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. I can’t really verify it since I don’t have other heart rate monitor to test with.

It feature an extra-large display, full-screen graphical training tools and a one-button control that allows you to navigate around the watch’s menu easily.
No idea why Li Xiang is so obsessed with sports right now, but she did influence me in some way. I have started jogging every Wednesday since 2 weeks ago and perhaps will extend to jogging twice per week and perhaps in the future 3 times a week. Even when jogging, the gadget freak in me also bought some gadgets for it.
Got my Nike + iPod Sport Kit (S$55) and SwitchEasy Runaway (S$16) from Ion’s EpiCenter. I am intending to use it with my newly bought 6th Generation 16GB iPod Nano (Graphite) (S$278) which will be delivered tomorrow from Apple Store (Singapore). I ordered online because it includes free laser engraving! This is my first time owning an iPod Nano.
