A gesture controlled music player
that tracks performance while running.

Enhancing the joy of running.

Beat is a watch / ring combo that allows you to easily control your music during your workout. Current devices on the market are difficult to use while on the go - finding the right button to press without stopping or struggling to use a touchscreen with sweaty hands. Using an innovative gesture interface, Beat seamlessly integrates into the running experience and puts you back in control.

Meet your new personal trainer.

Beat enhances your workout by pairing your favorite music with performance stats that motivate you along the way. By measuring time, distance, pace and heart rate, you can get to know your body and learn to push yourself further or faster.

Wireless freedom.

The Beat watch is the brains of the operation. It holds your music and wirelessly connects to a stride sensor in your shoe, a heart rate monitor around your chest and the Beat ring around your finger. It can also connect to bluetooth headphones or you can plug in any headphones that use a standard 3.5mm jack.

Gestures.

You're in control.

Power Song

Control your music with a flick of your wrist.

Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural. Is your current song not matching your groove? Flick your hand right to move to the next song. Ready to rock out? Turn it up by turning your hand to the right. Need that extra boost to get you up that hill? Play your power song by giving a punch forward. Beat's gesture control lets you experience your music in a whole new way.

Beat knows your every move.

The Beat ring tracks your gestures with the built-in accelerometer and gyroscope. Just press the finger trigger when you want to initiate an action so Beat knows when you mean business. The ring and watch are designed for both hands so whether you're left or right handed, we've got you covered.

Plug and play.

Just that easy.

Everything you need.

The watch strap has an integrated USB that allows for a friction fit closure and provides a simple way to sync your runs and music with your computer. There are no extra cords to lose.

Just dock it.

The ring docks on the back of the watch to keep them together for storage and doubles as a charging station.

Smart DJ.

Feel the beat.

It's all about the music.

Smart DJ learns which songs motivate you and plays them when your performance starts dropping. It will queue those songs next in your playlist to give you the extra boost you need.

Never miss a beat.

As you run, Beat tells you your time, distance, pace and heart rate with real-time voice feedback while you listen to your favorite songs. And with up to 16GB of storage capacity, you'll never need to leave another tune behind.

Ring.

Made for you.

It fits your finger.

The ring is made up of two parts - a hard enclosure that holds all the components and a flexible silicone band that is extremely comfortable to wear. Beat comes with a variety of bands at different lengths so it fits you perfectly.
