FOR ATHLETES: The Parrot Zik Sport was designed by Philippe Starck.

In Las Vegas, Parrot has introduced the Zik Sport, an innovative new pair of headphones designed specifically for athletes. The earbuds and headband are equipped with biometric sensors capable of monitoring everything from heart rate to running style. 

The headset relies on its complete range of sensors to provide data on the wearer's running performance, including stride frequency, left and right foot step counts and vertical oscillation measurements. All of these analytics can be accessed through a dedicated app, allowing wearers to see where they may have room for improvement. 

Like the Parrot Zik and Zik 2.0, the Zik Sport was designed by Philippe Starck. 


The new in-ear headphones are sweat resistant and include a noise-cancelling function. They can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth and have a battery life of over five hours. 

The Parrot Zik Sport is expected to launch before the end of 2015 at an unannounced price. 

Parrot is also taking advantage of CES to present other new products such as the RNB6 in-car infotainment system, miniature drones and a smart solution for watering plants. — AFP/Relaxnews 2015
