The Wait is Over: Spree Now Available for Purchase

Nov 15 2013, 6:20am CST | by PR.com

Online orders now being taken for revolutionary fitness monitor.

Dallas, TX, November 15, 2013 --(PR.com)-- It drew raves at the International Consumer Electronics Show. It was named runner-up in a global competition at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona. It’s been put through more than a year of development and testing in the harshest of conditions, including the Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred cycling race in Wichita Falls, TX.

Now the revolutionary Spree fitness monitor is available for consumer purchase online, prior to retail distribution. The most comprehensive fitness monitor on the market – and the first to track body temperature, movement and heart rate without using a chest strap – may now be ordered at www.SpreeSports.com or at Amazon.com for just $299, plus tax and shipping.

The cutting-edge device stands apart from other fitness monitors, such as those worn around the chest or arms, by analyzing the three most important variables in every fitness routine – body temperature, movement and heart rate. The sleek and comfortable headband unit captures all the real-time data needed to optimize every workout and achieve ultimate performance, then streams the information to an easy-to-use smartphone app that charts exertion and provides visual indicators when each activity’s goal is reached.

For “healthletes” concerned about the effectiveness of their heart rate monitor or irritated by chest straps, Spree offers a welcome alternative.

“Traditional chest straps, armbands and bracelets usually work fine for tracking heart rates and other basic information, but they ignore the critical element of body temperature,” said Peter Linke, President of Dallas-based Hothead Technologies, Inc., which developed the proprietary technology in Spree. “Knowing the temperature at which your body reaches peak performance is a huge advantage, and Spree is the only device that does it.”

Spree also measures distance traveled, speed, time and calories burned, and combines these data points into simple graphs that let you know when your body is hitting its optimal zone.

By placing its advanced Performance Optimization Device, or POD, securely in the headband, Spree can most accurately measure body temperature, since the forehead is one of the best places on the body surface to do this, while also serving as a great place to measure heart rate. The headband likewise addresses a common complaint from women about chest straps, which are often considered uncomfortable, awkward and restraining. Studies also show that arm and wristband units tend to provide the least reliable data.

For more information, and to order Spree today, visit www.SpreeSports.com.
