On the Horizon: Your Best Buds Wireless ear buds are a great way to help you intensify your workout, but the next step is adding a smart component, which Bragi’s The Dash buds do, with three cool features. First, you upload up to 1,000 songs directly to The Dash, creating one-touch playlists. Second, The Dash can function as an activity tracker for runners; get live feedback on duration, heart rate and number of steps (the company promises future updates, adding swimming and cycling and other activities). And finally, you can use The Dash as a Bluetooth-enabled headphone; get call notifications from your smartphone, and then answer those calls with a touch. The Dash app will help you track your stats. At press time, a Kickstarter update noted that while the buds had been expected to be out by Christmas, mass production had stopped to fix a problem with the waterproofing. Stay tuned at the company’s website. Black or white buds, $299. Pre-orders at http://store.bragi.com.
