Marathon training is in full effect. Since I’ve been running longer distances listening to podcasts helps me kill the boredom on a long run. The new AfterShokz Trekz Air were just what I needed for marathon training and beyond.
AfterShokz Trekz Air are use bone conduction technology to that allows you to listen to music with out an ear but in your ear. AfterShokz make it so that you can hear on coming traffic while you run and still enjoy your music or podcasts. They also come with a zipper carrying case and a two year warranty!
My favorite things about Trekz Air is the ease of use and the long battery life. When I opened the box and turned the Trekz Air on they were instantly recognized my my iPhone. I haven’t had any problems connecting to them since. The battery life on these is AMAZING. They can last for up to 6 hours which means they will last for an entire long run, regardless of how fast you run.
They also work great in all weather or sweaty conditions. I ran Big Sur 21 Miler with my pair and they held up great with all of my sweat and the brief rain shower around mile 14. I also was able to stay aware of my surrounding on the race course. Since the course was so busy with other racers and volunteers it was great to hear course instructions and listed to podcasts to keep me running. They are so lightweight, I barely noticed I was wearing them during my race.
Overall, I highly recommend any distance runner buy a pair of AfterShokz Trekz Air. They are so easy to use and comfortable to wear that the investment is worth it. If you want to buy yourself a pair, use this link and save $30 on your purchase!
