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 .

Barcelona Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of July 28

FC Barcelona Unveil New Signing Jeremy Mathieu
Barcelona have continued to work the transfer market this summer with aplomb, with the recent capture of Jeremy Mathieu being the latest addition. The spending is unlikely to stop there, however, and while Alex Song and Ibrahim Afellay don't have a future at the club, it's unclear at this juncture as to the likelihood of moving them on. Clearly, this is very much Luis Enrique's side, and there will be no excuses if they do not perform to the level ex ...

Looking for a little guidance in considering my first road bike. I’ve been trying to study up on road bikes, but maybe you guys can enlighten me here.

I’ve only been riding it on the street – put street tires on it, clipless ...

Bronco's evolution on the offensive side of the ball has been encouraging.

Jul 27 2014 7:56pm CDT | Source: cougar board

McCoy's Premier League Darts Play-Offs
One of Bronco's flaws has been his desire to focus on the defensive side of the ball and let the OC and coaches handle the offensive side. One of the things Bronco experienced last year when playing Wisconsin was watching the offensive line dominate the line of scrimmage and how this impacted the game. He even commented to Gary Anderson at mid field after the game how impressed he was with their physicality I for one am glad that he is spending his time working with the offensive line a ...

95% of my commute is after dark. For a long time, I used either a BlackBurn Flea or an Axiom Spark (Knog style) light in blink mode. It seemed to work well for being seen in urban/suburban areas. Lately, I've been riding through the levee system roads at night, and I need to see what I'm looking at, rather than be seen by traffic. I tried mounting my Cygolite Pace 420, my NiteRider MiNewt 600 and my NiteRider Mako 1 ...
