Consumer electronics accessories specialist, VOXX, has unveiled new products and technologies ‘designed for safety and active lifestyles’ under the MyGuard brand during the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Leading the collection is MyGuard Sport, a safety illuminated armband that holds mobile devices and aims to give peace-of-mind during day and night fitness activity. Products will be available in spring 2016 and are being demoed at the CES MyGuard Booth located in Central Hall #10406.
“Music, safety and comfort make every exercise even more worthwhile,” said Ian Geise, Senior Vice President of Voxx Accessories. “Whether you’re at the gym or outdoors running, MyGuard products will make sure you’re seen and protected while letting you keep your belongings and favourite workout music at reach.”
The flagship piece is MyGuard Sport (US$49.99), a safety armband with a hands-free device pocket. Whether walking, biking or training for a race, Voxx notes that MyGuard Sport protects athletes’ belongings from the environment while keeping the athlete safe with highly visible LED lights, reflective bands and an emergency panic alarm.
The 105db panic alarm is quickly activated by pulling a pin on the band and provides peace of mind during early morning and evening activity by alerting people of an emergency situation. If the runner or walker is in danger, the pin can be tossed away making it nearly impossible for an attacker to silence the alarm and go unnoticed.
MyGuard Sport has bright red and green LED colours that are used in 7 different high-visibility light modes including steady, blinking, pulsing and emergency alert. The lightweight adjustable band features reflective material with up to 1,200ft of visibility for nighttime activities.
The smartphone pocket gives the user hands-free access to music, phone calls or workout data and holds devices as large as an iPhone 6 or Samsung S5. The storage pocket can hold cash, keys or other small valuables during activity. The band is weather resistant and includes a rechargeable battery and micro-USB cable.
