Soleus GO Press Release

Soleus Enters the Wearable Technology Market and Launches the Most Comprehensive Activity Tracker
 
Premier Sports and GPS Company Debuts the Soleus GO!
 

January 22, 2014 – Austin, Texas – Soleus, the premiere sports watch and GPS company in the performance and fitness markets is thrilled to announce the debut of the Soleus GO! (hyperlink to presell page), the most comprehensive fitness tracker currently on the market. The Soleus GO! tracks more than just your everyday activities with a real time crisp, organic OLED display. It is with you all the time to motivate, keep you on track and inform you of all activity, even during sleep. Included with the Soleus GO! platform is a robust mobile app that allows you to sync all of your activity directly to your IOS supported device. This feature will allow you to log your daily activity so all of your data is easily accessible. The wireless sync will also help you to never miss a text message or phone call with automatic caller ID and text messaging notification via Blutetooth connectivity directly to your Soleus GO! Band.

 

The Soleus GO! measures, tracks and informs you on the most important aspects of your daily life with immediate, clear precision. The Daily Activity Tracking allows you to set a goal and track your progress by measuring steps taken and calories burned. It also allows you to set a move time notification with a vibration alert if you want to incorporate activity after a certain amount of time. Inspired from Soleus’s leadership position in the performance and fitness markets, a feature unique to Soleus is a built-in Exercise Mode to track your speed, distance and pace separate from the Daily Activity Tracking. The Real Time Smart Wearable Technology feature keeps you informed of temperature and weather alerts along with incoming calls and text messages. Even as you sleep, Soleus GO! is tracking your sleep pattern including how many times you were awake and recording both your REM and light sleep. This feedback is invaluable to understanding how much REM sleep you need to feel well throughout the day and for exercise recovery. The auto and manual sleep timer will also awake you through a vibration alert if you set the silent wake-up alarm.

 

The Soleus GO! App is customizable and saves your user data: gender, age, height and weight and constantly synced through your Bluetooth device. All of your customized goals will be recorded, stored and displayed for you at real time. The summary of these details can be viewed daily, weekly or monthly through bar graphs that display your recorded activity.

 

“At Soleus, we started the company around meeting the needs of the athlete with quality performance and style at an affordable cost, said David Arnold, Founder and CEO of Soleus. Our core values are attributed to supplying athletes the most advanced tools they need to achieve their goals. At the same time, we want to help people everywhere enhance their life with activity. We spent a lot of time and research to develop the most comprehensive activity tracker that monitors and records the most important aspects of daily life while incorporating the wearable technology features for everyone on the ‘go’.”

Run for the Water

This past Sunday we had the honor of participating in the 7th annual Run for the Water here in Austin, Texas. Run for the Water is a 10-miler/5K/Kids1K race that benefits the Gazelle Foundation.

 

The Gazelle Foundation funds and builds clean water projects in Burundi, Africa. The Foundation’s formation was inspired by Gilbert Tuhabonye, a Burundi survivor of the Hutu/Tutsi civil upheaval of the 1980′s and 90′s which reached a “peace” agreement in 2008. Since the foundation's inception, over 20,000 Burundians have been served with clean, potable drinking water with an estimated 10,000 to be served for the remainder of 2013.

 

Although it may have been a rainy Sunday morning, it didn't slow down the 4,228 registrants from having a successful race day. And as always, we had a blast supporting one of our favorite causes. Here are a few race day photos--enjoy! 

 

The Soleus "Make Your Moment" banner helped inspire runners to dig deep as they entered the last mile of their runs.
