Vi is an AI personal trainer developed by startup LifeBEAM that uses AI to provide real-time coaching based on a user’s physiology. The earbuds feature aerospace-grade biosensors, hi-fi sound quality and an elegant ergonomic design.

The goal of Vi is to motivate athletes of all levels and create a more personal relationship with exercise to prevent ‘workout dropout’. The built-in audio coach offers an immersive experience that incentivizes people to exercise more frequently. In addition, the headphones can be used to stream music and other audio.

Each day, Vi tracks athletic performance, learning as it goes to provide smarter advice. It does this by keeping pace during runs, and providing real-time performance stats.

The earbuds feature built-in biosensors that accurately measure heart rate, heart rate variability, motion, elevation and other environmental sensors. Vi interprets this data to deliver insights such as weight loss optimization, exhaustion level management, injury prevention, running technique, stress levels, adaptive training plans, and more. The accompanying mobile app lets users review their performance and communicate with Vi through voice or text, even when not training.

Omri Yoffe, CEO and co-founder of LifeBEAM, said in a press release:

“The future of wearables is using AI to personalize our health and fitness in real time, and we created Vi to lead this new frontier. By improving a person’s awareness of their own behaviors, environment, and real-time physiology, Vi provides an inspiring and truly smarter workout experience. We call Vi an ‘Awareable,’ as it’s the first and only wearable with the power to actually be aware of a person’s activity patterns and coach their behavior in real time.”

Whether or not Vi is a hit with consumers, it’s clear that AI-driven performance devices are becoming more widely available to average athletes, more affordable, and integrated into a wider range of everyday products. Vi is available to pre-order online for $279. You can check out the AI personal trainer in the video below:
