RunIQ uses Intel Atom Z34XX processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, enough to fit around 50 hours of Google Play music. In order to optimize the listening experience, New Balance also partnered up with Jabra who is releasing a pair of PaceIQ wireless earphones compatible with RunIQ, which features a special Sports button allowing for real-time in-ear coaching.

RunIQ is retailing for $299 and can be ordered through the New Balance’s website.
