Now that the weather is nicer, I’ve started walking again.  During track season, I would take a few laps around the track before or after Z.E.N.’s practices, but now that track season is over, I’m back to walking in my neighborhood.  Many of the streets in my town do not have sidewalks, so I have to walk in the street. This is why it’s important to stay alert and be aware of the moving cars around me.  I will never forget the time when one of my co-workers went out for a jog and was hit by a car from behind. The car never stopped and left her injured and unconscious on the side of the road. This is why I am always cautious when out walking on the road.

I love to listen to music while I’m walking. It keeps me energized. However, wearing headphones sometimes prevents me from clearly hearing the passing traffic. This is why I am in in love with these new Bose wearable headphones available from Best Buy. The Bose Soundwear companion is basically a wireless speaker that connects to your phone via Bluetooth.  Setup was quick and easy. I downloaded the Bose Connect app and followed the prompts and was  up and running in no time.

This wearable speaker  rests comfortably on your shoulders and moves with you as it delivers deep, clear sound. It features a removable four-way stretch cover which adds a layer of protection without affecting the sound. Since it doesn’t sit on my ears, I can hear when cars are coming behind me and still enjoy my music.

It’s also great for answering calls while on the go. I thought the background noise would make a phone conversation difficult, but to my surprise, calls stay crystal clear even if it’s windy or noisy.

The rechargeable, lithium-ion battery lasts pretty long and  gives me up to 12 hours of play time. Forgot to charge the battery? No worries, a quick 15-minute charge gets you another 2.5 hours of play time.
