iHome and New Balance teamed up to create a strapless heart-rate monitor/headphone combo that allows you to perform all of your favorite exercise measurements in a package about as big as a pack of gum. The headphones require a quick, firm touch to sense your current heart-rate and the information is audibly presented in to your ears.

That’s literally all we know right now, so we’ll assume that New Balance knows what they’re doing here even though most one-touch heart-rate monitors are pretty rough.

They’ll be available this summer.
