Beats Powerbeats Pro now on sale in UK, France, Germany
Powerbeats Pro, Apple's all-wireless earbuds for those with an active lifestyle, have gone up for preorder in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, almost a month after the Beats-branded audio accessories became available to purchase in the United States.
The online Apple Stores covering the UK, France, and Germany all include new pages for the Powerbeats Pro as a pre-order with a week-long lead on delivery. It arrives in the three markets after the United States, where it was up for preorder from May 3 for a May 10 release.
In all three stores, the four color options of black, ivory, moss, and navy are on display, but only the black variant is available to purchase, with deliveries ranging between June 6 and June 10. The other three colors are identified as "coming this summer" with the option to add it to the bag greyed out.
The Beats Powerbeats Pro borrows the H1 wireless chip from the AirPods to provide better Bluetooth connectivity and enabling the use of "Hey Siri" commands. Similar in overall concept to the AirPods, the Powerbeats Pro offers more fitness-focused functions, like earhooks to prevent them from moving during workouts, and a sweatproof enclosure, along with the benefit of a nine-hour runtime and a supplemental 15 hours from its charging case.
