Headphone compatibility for your GPS music watch

Click here to see which products/categories this applies to.

During testing of our GPS watches with various Bluetooth® headphones, we found out that the quality of the reception can be influenced by two factors:

  1. The human body, because it isolates radio frequencies which are used by the Bluetooth® protocol.
  2. The position of the Bluetooth® antenna in the headphones in relation to the location of the watch.

That is why we have created the following overview with our recommendation for which wrist the watch should be worn on to get the best performance out of the headphones.
