A couple of years ago we told you about Vi, the world’s first AI personal trainer. We loved Vi! Right now you can get your own Vi—including the Vi-Sense heart rate-monitoring headphones—for the incredible price of just $79 for your first year.
Beyond the novelty of having a trainer living inside our head, we found Vi to be a truly effective workout tool. It provided guidance and inspiration, and kept us on-track and motivated to meet our fitness goals.
When it debuted, Vi cost $249. That’s not an inconsequential amount of money, especially considering you still need to subscribe to the AI service, which costs $99/year. This new introductory offer throws in the Vi-Sense headphones their impressive Harman Kardon speakers, and gives you your first year of Vi for just $79 ($99 thereafter).
Who Is Vi and How Does She Work?
The Vi-Sense headphones are a pair of earbuds with an attached collar. The earbuds house aerospace-grade heart rate sensors. They monitor your temperature and heart rate, environmental data like weather, location, and altitude, and training progress markers like workout frequency, running cadence, and speed. They even pack Harman Kardon speakers, which sound crisp, clear, and up to par with a good pair of Bluetooth earbuds.
Vi also syncs nicely with the rest of your digital life, connecting nicely with your Fitbit or most any other device you use for exercise. The most common complaint with some fitness trackers, though, is that while they produce valuable information most people don’t know how to use that information—or they simply don’t know what the metrics mean.
That’s where Vi shines. Once you set up the app, Vi asks you to select your goal from a predetermined list of usual fitness fare: lose weight, run faster, run farther, etc. After about two hours of “running” with you, she’ll figure out your quirks and patterns, and start creating a tailor-made fitness plan for you.
We loved Vi, the world’s first AI personal trainer—and we think you will, too. And with this introductory offer, it’s too good a deal to pass up.
Get It: Try Vi today and get free Vi-Sense headphones and one year of AI Trainer for just $79.
