The rumored AirPods Pro 2 could monitor your workouts and give you feedback on how to improve, according to a new Apple patent.

The patent, which was spotted by Apple Insider, describes a ‘Wireless Ear Bud With Pose Detection’, and shows how Apple is researching the ways future AirPods could assist users with exercise routines. 

“Ear buds may have sensors to gather orientation information such as accelerometer measurements during user movements,” says the patent application. It goes on to describe how a “host electronic device” – an iPhone, for example – could communicate wirelessly with a pair of earbuds and supply users with coaching and feedback, while assessing head movements or other exercise routines.

This kind of technology would tie in nicely with Apple Fitness Plus, the company’s subscription-based workout service that gives you a choice of exercise classes to try at home, including high-intensity interval training (HIIT), indoor cycling, treadmill running, yoga, strength, and pilates.
