Lifebeam Vi review: Smart coaching in a great sports headphone

 

The Lifebeam Vi is one of those rare products that genuinely makes your workouts more effective. With its AI coaching and tracking combined in a

Coaching gives useful tips catered to you ; Earphones fit well (and comes with spares) ; Sounds is nice and bassy ; Neat design and flexible neckband

Spotify regularly stopped playing ; Coaching could be even more contextually aware ; Battery life could be better ; Strava tie-in unreliable ; Sound could be cleaner

Get a motivational earful with these personal trainer headphones...

AI trainer offers plenty of encouragement and advice ; Good range of bud and wingtip options to get a perfect fit ; Sound quality is fairly good

Lifebeam Vi review: The AI that wants to replace your personal trainer

 

If the Vi headphones are a snapshot of the future, sign me up

I like Vi a lot, but I appreciate in some ways it’s a tough sell. First, £200 puts it in direct competition with the likes of the Polar M430, Gear Fit2 Pro and the TomTom Spark 3 – all of which don’t require a phone, but track everything Vi does and a...
