YONKERS, NY – September 12, 2007 – Sportline, the brand leader in personal fitness monitoring has announced that the Solo 960, the world’s only heart rate watch and accelerometer combination, is now available for purchase at sporting goods retailers throughout the country.

Available for $99.99, the Solo 960 has helped Sportline set an impressive industry standard when it comes to measuring and tracking individual fitness goals. In addition to being the only product of its kind, the Solo 960 is unique in that it features a pedometer which utilizes motion-sensing accelerometer technology, combined with Sportline’s patented 3Beat Sensor and One-Touch technologies for ECG accurate heart-rate measurement.

By combining heart sensor and accelerometer technologies into one watch, Sportline has created a one-of-a-kind product that will help anyone, from novice to expert, easily establish and accurately track personal fitness goals like never before.

“The Solo 960 is literally a breakthrough for this industry because nobody has ever been able to successfully integrate these technologies into one product,” said Dan Kinsbourne, V.P of Marketing for Sportline. “Not only have we created a single, integrated solution that combines highly accurate heart rate and physical activity measurement in to one instrument, but we’ve done it in a manner that’s extremely easy to use and very affordable.”

The Solo 960 includes a digital pedometer with a motion-sensing accelerometer, which is widely considered to be the most accurate and reliable technology on the market. With the pedometer, users can track their steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, speed, exercise time, and maintain daily and weekly records.

The innovative watch also features Sportline’s new 3Beat Sensor and One-Touch technologies. 3Beat Sensor technology is the fastest, most accurate contact heart-rate measuring device in the industry and relies on a patented filter system to acquire ECG accurate heart-rate data in three beats or less.

Sportline’s One-Touch Technology is the most advanced contact heart-rate monitoring technology on the market and allows a user to measure his or her heart rate at the touch of a single button. And, unlike lesser technologies, accuracy is maintained whether the wearer is stationary, walking or running and without the use of cumbersome chest straps.

The unique 3Beat Sensor and One-Touch technologies have also been incorporated into Sportline’s new Solo 925 models, the latest additions to the company’s impressive line of heart rate watches. The 925 is also available for purchase at sporting goods stores around the country and retails for $79.99. It comes in both men’s black and women’s blue styles.
