Magellan Echo Smart Sports watch now pretty in pink just in time for Mother’s Day
Magellan is releasing a stylish pink version of their smart sports watch the Echo, just in time for Mother’s Day. Echo is the perfect accessory for busy mums who use fitness apps to keep them on track with their fitness goals – whether it’s through running, walking and gym workouts or even golf. Fitness apps are perfect for busy mums as it’s like having her own personal trainer available anytime that she is. However juggling an iPhone in her hands while running or exercising can be a recipe for disaster, and glancing at a smartphone when it’s strapped in an armband can be very inconvenient.
The Echo provides a solution to these challenges – it works by using Bluetooth Smart technology to wirelessly connect to an iPhone and will stream details from the sports app such as distance, time, calories and pace in real time to a user’s wrist. This means mum can tuck her phone away in her armband or pocket and have complete control of her running or walking apps and music from her wrist.
The rugged and shower-proof Echo features a customisable screen that will allow mum to start, stop or lap her sports app as well as play, change and pause songs on her iPhones music playlist. All while her iPhone is tucked away in her armband or pocket.
The Magellan Echo is compatible with many popular sports apps including Strava, all Wahoo Fitness apps, MapMyRun, MapMyWalk, MapMyHike, iMobileinterval, iSmoothRun and GolfPadGPS. There is even an Echo model that includes a low-energy Bluetooth heart rate monitor, that’s compatible with any sports apps that tracks heart rate data.
How Does It Work
– Echo uses Bluetooth Smart to communicate with your smartphone, pairing with compatible apps on your phone.
– Here the list of apps currently support Echo: Wahoo Fitness, Strava, MapMyRun & iSmoothRun.
– When Echo detects that an app is attempting to pair with it, it will display a pairing screen with the option to confirm or cancel the pair request.
– After Echo pairs with the mobile fitness app, it will subsequently show a syncing screen while the application downloads setting to Echo. One the sync is complete, the Echo device will show a data screen. Your Echo is now ready to use!
