The Gear Fit 2 Pro and Gear Sport aren't the only products Samsung is unveiling at IFA 2017. Today, the company also introduced a revamped version of its Gear IconX wireless earbuds, which feature better battery life (up to five hours of streaming) and support for its virtual assistant, Bixby. That means you can now use your voice to control your music or paired phone, all by simply tapping and holding the side of the IconX earbud. And because runners may be into these, Samsung added a Running Coach mode that gives you real-time, in-ear status updates as you're working out.

In terms of ergonomics, they're slightly lighter and have been redesigned to ensure they stay in your ear securely -- and, importantly, that they feel comfortable while you're using them. Samsung didn't reveal when the improved Gear IconX earbuds will hit stores, but we do know they'll launch in three different colors (black, gray and pink) this time. There's no word on pricing either, though the previous IconX Bluetooth set cost $200, so you can expect the new ones to be close to that.
