Plantronics launches Backbeat FIT family to fuel your workout at any level

Plantronics, a pioneer in audio and wearable technology, recently announced the expansion of the company’s sport portfolio with the BackBeat FIT Family, a range of wireless sport headphones to fit any user’s active lifestyle.

New products include the BackBeat FIT 300 Series, the BackBeat FIT 500 Series, as well as the BackBeat FIT Training Edition and BackBeat FIT Boost Edition, both of which feature an exclusive partnership with the PEAR Personal Coach App.

“The BackBeat FIT Family provides a variety of styles and features designed with sport in mind,” said Greg Miller, director, Portfolio Business Management at Plantronics.

“There’s a sweat-protected, stable and comfortable pair of BackBeat FIT headphones that’s right for any level of fitness – whether you’re looking for a dedicated sport headphone with on-demand coaching, or just want something comfortable and stylish to wear throughout the day.”

The BackBeat FIT Family delivers the premium features that Plantronics headphones are known for, including comfort, stability and durability.

Featuring Plantronics’ signature audio quality and performance, the portfolio can inspire any fitness experience from beginner bodyweight and yoga workouts to advanced marathon training programs.

Its range of affordable prices along with varying colors and different wearing styles provides a greater choice to help motivate any athlete wherever they are on their fitness journey.

A new partnership with PEAR Personal Coach App means users can now take their workout to the next level by bringing together wireless freedom and ultimate stability with interactive, on-demand coaching with the BackBeat FIT Training Edition and BackBeat FIT Boost Edition.

According to the National Federation of Professional Trainers, an experienced trainer can cost upwards of $50-$60 an hour, making PEAR Personal Coaching App an ideal complement to the Plantronics BackBeat FIT to push you to complete your best workout, without the costly training fees.

Led by renowned coaches such as Andrew Kastor, elite Olympic coach and his wife Deena Kastor, Olympian and world-record runner; author and triathlete coach Matt Dixon, users will have unlimited access to 12 workouts and six-month access to the entire PEAR workout library that include personal cues throughout the program to help achieve maximum fitness results.
