The biggest criticism of the first Gear IconX has eliminated Samsung with 2018 model: the low battery life. The first IconX lasted only an hour and a half in our test; The new model will provide up to seven hours of running time. The talk time should be four hours, the streaming time five hours.
Charging again via storage box
The new IconX is loaded again with a special storage box, which has an integrated rechargeable battery and Pogo pins. When inserting the two ear plugs, their batteries are charged with a respective nominal charge of 82 mAh through the built-in 340 mAh battery. Ten minutes' charge should take an hour. The charge tray itself is loaded via a USB type C cable.
The new IconX is based on the basic principle: the headphones can record various activities and the heart rate using different sensors and a built-in heart rate monitor, which are then evaluated on the smartphone. The headphones are self-explanatory.
Using a touchpad in the right ear plug, users can interact with the IconX. This allows you to skip audio tracks or start and stop playback by means of various knocking gestures.

Personal Laufcoach and Bixby
The new IconX offers a personal run coaching, which gives the user during the jogging hints and tips. In addition, the earplugs are compatible with Samsung's language wizard Bixby. Bixby is now completely available in Germany, but so far only in English and Korean.
