"Team Spree" to Debut at San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll Marathon

Six-runner team to showcase revolutionary fitness monitor at Nov. 17th race.

San Antonio, TX, November 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A team of six long-distance racers will be sporting the revolutionary Spree fitness monitor as they compete in next week’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Antonio. The cutting-edge product will also be showcased at the accompanying Health & Fitness Expo held prior to the race in the Alamodome.

“Team Spree” will be the only runners able to monitor their body temperature with the same device that measures their movement and heart rate. That’s because Spree is integrated into a sleek and comfortable headband, a welcome alternative to runners and other “healthletes” that are concerned about the effectiveness of their heart rate monitor or irritated by chest straps.

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

“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 their body reaches peak performance gives Team Spree, and our other customers, a huge advantage, since Spree is the only device that does it.”

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.

“We’re looking forward to cheering on our racers and to meeting and educating ‘healthletes’ at the Expo about the importance of monitoring their body temperature,” continued Linke, who recently put Spree to the ultimate test at the Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred in Wichita Falls. “I know they’ll be impressed by how easy Spree is to use, and how much more comfortable it is to wear while exercising.”

The Spree headband is the most comprehensive fitness monitor on the market, and the first to track body temperature, movement and heart rate without using a chest strap.

The innovative 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. Armed with this information, you learn where your body is burning the most calories, when it is building the most muscle mass and at what pace you are achieving maximum endurance.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon comes to San Antonio on Sunday, November 17th. The Health & Fitness Expo will be held at the Alamodome on November 15th and 16th.

Spree units will be on display at Booth #518 during the Expo, and may also be reserved online at www.SpreeSports.com.
