Dallas, TX, March 24, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Spree Wearables, maker of the world’s smartest fitness monitor, announced today that the Spree SmartCap has been named a 2015 Wearable Technology Product of the Year Award winner.
The annual awards program is run by TMC, a global, integrated media company that helps clients build communities in print, in person and online. Results are published on Wearable Tech World.
“This is yet another wonderful recognition for our SmartCap, which is steadily gaining notoriety for providing cutting-edge fitness monitoring capability while setting athletes free from their uncomfortable chest straps,” said Peter Linke, president of Spree Wearables. “It’s a truly revolutionary product, which this latest award underscores.”
Recognized as a “Best in Show” product by Sports Illustrated at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Spree is the first and only fitness device that tracks heart rate without the use of a cumbersome chest strap, and monitors body temperature, movement and a variety of additional metrics as well. The Spree SmartCap is so easy to use and comfortable, it does what most wearables fail to do: It becomes a natural extension of the athlete’s body.
“It gives me great pleasure to honor Spree Wearables as a 2015 recipient of the Wearable Technology Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by Spree’s groundbreaking work on the SmartCap.”
Developed by Dallas-based Spree Wearables, Inc. (formerly Hothead Technologies, Inc.), the Spree SmartCap stands apart from other fitness monitors by analyzing the three most important variables in every fitness routine – body temperature, movement and heart rate – all in one easy-to-use device. The unique design measures directly from the forehead using medical grade technology. The SmartCap also insulates from the sun, and because the device measures temperature as an added component, it provides a true measurement of caloric burn along with heart rate.
