Be a programmer, be a designer or be any person who works sitting at desks. We do not have a chance to move occasionally when we focus or are busy with our work and experience neck pain or back pain at the end of the day. Some smart watches have sedentary time reminders to remind you of time to move.

And headphones sometimes help us to focus and motivation, sometimes a tool for isolation from noisy environment. They are best friends of ours, not when we are working. When we are commuting in the city, running in the park or inside the gym, making a phone call or where you are using. They are a part of our everyday-carry.

True Wireless Stereo Headset or shortly TWS Market to grow 33 Percent YoY in 2021.310 million units selled in the last year and in this giant market top one is Apple with its Airpods.

All companies try to sell their TWS headphones, because of the profit in the market. When you look at the graph of statspanda Apple’s airpods revenue close to Netflix’s and Tesla’s revenue all together in 2020.

After looking at the market shortly, let me ask why people buy these products. The first reason should be most flagship phones have no headphone jack today. I believe the main reason is these devices are portable and easy to care for.

Amazfit PowerBuds Pro

Amazfit looks at these products from a different viewpoint. As a health and wearable devices manufacturer, they are creating a submarket for themselves.
They are adding some functions to these products to use as a health tracker or assistant.Amazfit Powerbuds Pro is their second TWS headphone on the market.I have both Amazfit Powerbuds and Amazfit PowerbudsPro.Pro version stands out with its three features.The new Pro version stands out with its three features.

Exercise Heart Rate Monitoring

To track your heart rate, it works with its own ZEPP Health app, or you can use third party apps like Strava ,MapMyRun ,Yesoul Cycling etc. Besides that, you can connect as an external heart rate monitor to your smartwatch.

Honestly for running, sometimes it is not staying in my ears also you need to phone to track your GPS in your side. I’m not preferring for outside sports. But it is easy to care for and wear when compared with my Polar H7. And please do not use these headphones when you are cycling for your safety. However, I’m using mine every standing cycling and gym exercises as a heart rate tracker.

Cervical Spine Posture Reminders

The reason I bought these headphones. It helps you keep your neck posture natural and warns you to move when your posture has not changed for a long time or your head down too much time even if you are sitting or standing. The headphones play a calming melody to remind that to align your posture.

Motion Beat Mode

Make the bass and beats of your music stronger and clearer whenever you begin working out.

Smart Hearing Protection

I never used it and don’t know what it is :) It simply monitors the decibel level and records your listening time. The preferred amount by WHO (World Health Organization), with 80dB 40hours per week. App shows whether you reach that level or not.

Other Features

If we are done talking about health functions, these headphones come with

  • IP55 dust- and water-resistant
  • Bluetooth version: BT 5.0, BLE
  • Active Noise Cancellation up to 40dB
  • 3-mic Call Noise-reduction
  • Voice Assistant integration (Siri, Google Assistant)
  • Google Fast Pair

Sound Quality

I treat sound quality at the end. The sound quality is impressive. So smooth and it has equalizer support with ZEPP app. I can just say basses are not powerful but as a TWS headphone this is not big deal for me.

Where To Buy

In TĂĽrkiye, it is not officially sold by reseller. I bought it from Amazon USA. In 2 weeks, I received my product.

Last Words

As a last word, I used these headphones for more than 4 months, the only thing I don’t like is that these headphones connect only to one device simultaneously. It could be better if it connected to two devices. It has no wireless charging, but a short 15-minute charge grants about 2.5 hours’ playback. Without any hesitation you can use these headphones in the shower. Active Noice Cancelling makes its jobs well. The price of Powerbuds Pro is affordable with its additional health features when you compare them with any TWS headphones.
