The Verge

An AI running coach, in your ears

from The Verge

Vi is more of an active observer rather than a full-on coach, but sometimes increased awareness is all you need to self-correct. Once Vi has actual training plans, she’ll become far more useful. Despite all the issues I had with Vi, I actually liked it.

Alphr

The AI that wants to replace your personal trainer

from Alphr

Vi is great because it’s not aimed at marathon runners looking to shave seconds off their best times. It’s aimed at people who don’t really understand the numbers put out by fitness devices but who want someone to interpret them and offer encouragement.

The Telegraph

A product that has its heart in the right place

from The Telegraph

All in all, there’s much to admire about Vi. I like that it’s water resistant, as I get rather sweaty when exercising. I like that you can easily see how fast and far you run, and it’s easy to establish your progress – it would be great for training for a marathon, for example.

TrustedReviews

An intriguing option that’s ultimately let down by its execution

from TrustedReviews

The Vi Personal Trainer earphones get plenty right, but the poor voice command system makes using them mid-exercise a frustrating experience.

The Vi headphones are impressive in most departments. Sound quality is decent, its sensors are accurate, six-hours of active use battery life adequate and app interface user-friendly and simple.

More has to be done to put this AI into more ears

from WhatsYourTech

There’s real potential for what Lifebeam has done with the Vi, and it’s a commendable effort for a first time out in the market. But they are expensive at over $300, and clearly lean towards runners. If you aren’t running on a regular basis, then the Vi isn’t quite ready for you yet.

Ground-breaking AI coach, missing some essentials

from TechRadar

The LifeBEAM Vi is a remarkable piece of fitness tech and one of the most exciting running products we’ve seen in years. However, for all her smarts Vi doesn’t do enough of the running basics right to even replace your watch, let alone your coach.

A personal trainer that lives in your earbuds

from iMore

I'm nitpicking Vi a lot, but it's for a reason. In its current state, Vi is not for people just getting started. As I mentioned, it is a fantastic piece of fitness tracking equipment with a lot of unique smart learning software under the hood. But it's definitely designed for people that are already runners.

Disappointing after their very promising start

from Tom's Guide

Beginning runners looking for some extra tips should consider LifeBeam's Vi headphones and its virtual trainer, but the advice is pretty limited.

Wareable

Hell of a lot of potential

from Wareable

It's an impressive hearable with some top-notch heart rate tech, but the voice detection is too uneven. You're also limited to outdoor running for the time being.
