I ran the Bath half marathon this year and had problems connecting my bluetooth headphones - both at the starting line and all around the race. They simply wouldn't connect and it completely threw me off! At the time, I assumed it was because of the large number of people at the starting line.
I'm running the New York marathon in November and although I would love to use bluetooth headphones (I hate running with a wire now), I'm just too worried about them not working.
Does anyone else have experience in this? I've tried searching everywhere, but haven't found any answers. Is there any way to ensure a bluetooth connection (i.e. investing in better quality headphones - the ones I was using in Bath were Mpow Cheetah so only about £20)?
Any answers or thoughts are greatly appreciated!
