Apple’s beautiful and innovative AirPods have finally been released for public sale, much to the excitement and rejoice of the general public. There may be an almost instant six week backlog before orders can actually be fulfilled by Apple at this point in time, but at least they are now available to purchase and use.

However, putting beauty and form to one side, there is likely to be a major concern about whether or not the AirPods will actually remain in place when wearers are doing vigorous exercise, such as running. Of course, to put those fears to rest, it simply needs an avid runner to put the AirPods to the test, such as Australian, Daniel Garcia.

The real test for this one is pretty simple. Being a fitness and tech enthusiast, Garcia immediately took the opportunity to purchase a pair of Apple AirPods as soon as they were on general sale in Australia. It was then all about putting the product through its paces as part of a grueling running routine to see exactly how they would fare:

So in my run today I sprinted, ran down and up a mountain, in the heat and wind and more. I filmed the process (and some sexy Hasselhoff slow-motion of course) and here it is with my review and thoughts at the end. Hope this helps the rest of you.

It’s obviously not an exact scientific test, but the fact that Garcia was able to run at different speeds and on different terrains, as well as using them through varying temperatures and weather conditions without much problems, gives us a fairly good indication that Apple’s AirPods have been built with the fitness enthusiast in mind, and that they should hopefully stay firmly in place when this type of activity is undertaken.

This is great news considering just how beautiful they are. And of course, even before the AirPods were actually released to the public, there were plenty of press reviews with head shaking and dance tests to see if the AirPods would fall loose.

All of those tests provided positive outcomes, too. It seems that Apple has a very good product on its hands with the AirPods, and hopefully one that will definitely appeal to the health and fitness conscious in all types of environment.
