Soleus, the premier sport watch and fitness tracking company, has added Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) capabilities for three of its most popular platforms.
Dedicated to providing highly functional monitoring data, Soleus has released a GPS heart rate monitor watch, GPS PULSE BLE +HRM; a heart rate monitor watch, PULSE RHYTHM BLE; and a fitness tracker plus heart rate monitor wristband, THRIVE.
Along with this technology, Soleus has developed its Soleus App to be specifically compatible with these three devices allowing every athlete to monitor their fitness endeavours wirelessly.
The Soleus App is compatible with BLE in order to wirelessly sync all fitness activities directly to an iOS or Android supported device. This app and new line of products strive for convenience, ‘to meet the demands of the fast pace and highly technological world of the connected athlete.’
When Bluetooth is turned on, athletes can fetch their data from the Soleus device by simply pushing the sync button on the app. Setting goals for exercise, steps, distance, sleep and calories burned is made possible at a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
Within the app the user is provided an expanded view of real time workout stats, charts and progress reports. Data sharing is available to multiple apps and online communities including Strava, Map My Fitness / Under Armor Record and iOS Health Kit. The app is available in seven languages enabling global use for athletes around the world.
The most comprehensive model, the GPS PULSE BLE+HRM was selected as one of Competitor Magazine’s must-have products for runners in 2016. This watch possesses all the GPS features a runner should need, plus an accurate reading of heart rate while on the wrist.
Developed for the athlete who cherishes in-depth and enhanced real-time feedback of their fitness regimen, the GPS Pulse BLE+HRM can make this possible at the touch of a button via Bluetooth using the Soleus app. This model is available in three colours and retails at US$229.
The Soleus PULSE RHYTHM BLE+ HRM allows user to literally ‘Follow your heart’, inscribed on the back, from the wrist with a real time heart rate reading. This updated BLE version of the Pulse Rhythm HRM still offers a rechargeable unit with USB plug integrated into the strap. User can train within target zones, track calories burned, set interval timers, set 5 alarms and the device comes with a large 30 x 100 lap data storage capacity. The bonus is now that data can be uploaded via Bluetooth. It is available in two colours and retails at US$119.
With an easily adjustable wristband, THRIVE Activity Tracker + HRM, provides instant heart rate monitoring right at the wrist without needing to purchase any additional accessories. Similar to its predecessor, GO, THRIVE tracks sleep and monitors all-day activity including steps, distance and calories. The BLE compatibility allows call and text notifications to be pushed via Bluetooth from a mobile device with the Soleus app. Retailing at US$129, THRIVE aims to fulfils ‘the challenge of staying connected to the real world while disconnecting on the run.’
“We strive to continually enhance the features we want to offer and that our athletes are requesting,” shared Soleus founder and CEO David Arnold. “The Bluetooth technology was a priority and we are excited to grow the number of connected devices in our line.”
The team at Soleus continues to focus on ‘adapting to the needs of every kind of runner, recreational to elite, at a more affordable price point.’ The company aims for a balance of simplicity and performance that can also be seen next month when the Signature Series is released to the public for purchase.
