Default Bluetooth Ear Buds

I am shopping for Bluetooth ear buds with the following criteria:

-will sync with my new Fitbit Versa 2 and my Samsung Galaxy 8+
-reasonable price (under $100)
-have a built in mike
-can add ear hooks to them
-water / sweat proof for working out
-decent battery life between charges

Any suggestions?

Can't suggest any that meet all of your criteria, seems that you are looking for premium buds for a non-premium price.

I recently bought a pair of Sony WF-1000XM3 buds for $200 which I like very much but they don't meet all of your criteria.

Best of luck in your search.

Like what Strollin said, I have a pair of LG models that are bud they come out of a kinda headphone case. Good sound and has Mic built in. The price may be a deal breaker. Walmart had them for around the 120 range but that may have dropped down. I have had mine over 2 years now. No issues so far. Internal battery has a great usage and has the battery plug in to charge while using. here is a link that can lead you to sites.

Those definitely look alright. The only thing is that I was hoping for buds without any wires or connectors. I really need ear hook capability otherwise they won't stay in my ears for long. I've seen a few types on Amazon that seem to fit the bill. The only issue is that I don't know these makers and whether they are good buys.

Thanks for your help.

I saw these online and was wondering about them.


Or these:


Or these:


There are several more but they don't show ear hooks. I assume most would accommodate ear hooks as an add-on, but not certain on that.

Anyone know much about the above?
