Welcome back to Show and Tell, where Peter Salib unboxes sweet tech for every area of your life. In this episode, Salib checks out the H1 Smart Harness by ROBN. This ergonomic device is for all your outdoor activities, from intense recreation to light morning jogs. It also erases one of the most common dangers of outdoor activity: being unaware. Many of us like to run with our headphones in and listen to our favorite music or podcasts. But this leaves us oblivious to our surroundings. This device helps you “connect to all of your senses” as you explore the world. Let’s see how smart this harness is.
Why is this harness smart?
The H1 Smart Harness fits similar to a posture support device. It fits around your shoulders without too much pressure, as it’s less than ½ lb. If you’re into extreme sports, the device is meant to withstand even intense activity. But this harness isn’t ordinary. There are speakers built in on both sides, including volume controls. You now can be active with open ear technology. The speakers face up instead of out. So, you can experience your music or podcast without bothering people around you. This feature ensures that your ears are still open to outside noise. If a car honks or someone calls out to you, you’ll be aware and prepared for any situation. People also will be more aware of you, as the harness has lights on the back for nighttime visibility.
Bluetooth connection for your smartphone
This device has all the smartphone capabilities that you expect from a device these days. You can connect to your phone with Bluetooth to take calls. And it also is smart-assistant ready for hands-free communication. You don’t have to stop your activity to take out your phone. Simply say “Hey Google.” What do you think? Can the H1 Smart Harness make your recreational experiences better and safer?
