They could also react to certain head movements, using the movements as commands to perform various tasks. For example, tilting your head to the left could tell the headphones to pause the current song; tilting to the right could indicate you want to skip forward or change the volume. As reported by CNET , the key to the headphones ability to track fitness is a series of sensors embedded into one or more areas of the devices. When the sensors come into contact with skin, they can detect everything from heart rate to perspiration and temperature. For people who already wear headphones or earbuds during workouts, these would eliminate the need for additional accessories like heart rate monitors. All of the technology would be wrapped into the single product.

Navigation devices – once a duopoly of Garmin and TomTom – lost relevance as mapping apps became a standard feature on Apple Inc’s iPhones and phones powered by Google Inc’s Android operating system.
