With Fitbit’s newest product, the fitness company is moving beyond the wrist to a new body part: the ears.
On Monday, Fitbit launched its first-ever pair of wireless headphones, the Fitbit Flyer.
While Fitbit has branched out from wearable fitness trackers before with its Aria smart scale (the Aria 2 launched Monday as well), headphones are a totally new wearable for the company. But Fitbit CEO James Park called wireless headphones “a natural extension” of Fitbit’s fitness-focused product lineup.
The headphones come in two colours, cost $A199.95, and are designed to go hand-in-hand with Fitbit’s new smartwatch, which also launched Monday.
While we haven’t had a chance to fully test the Flyer yet (we have it in our offices and will publish our review in a few weeks), here’s everything we can tell you so far.

Since the watch can store music -- more than 300 songs -- you'll be able to leave your phone at home while exercising.
The headphones come with three sets of interchangeable tips, two different sets of wings, and two sets of fins so you can mix and match for a sealed fit.
Fitbit's Flyer also has two different sound settings: Signature and Power Boost. You can switch between the two sounds using the control panel on the headphones.
The headphones are rain, splash, and sweat-proof, so you can wear them for a full work-out without worrying that they will get ruined.
You'll also be able to make calls and use digital assistants like Siri or Google Assistant while wearing them.
Flyer can last for six hours on a single charge, and quick-charging them for 15 minutes will give you an extra hour.
The headphones were designed to fit flush inside your ear so that users can wear them under helmets, hats, or headbands.
