Solo 960 tracks runner heart rate, pace in one watch

Sportline Solo 960

Sportline today shipped a new flagship for its Solo 900 exercise watches that is claimed to be the first of its kind. The Solo 960 is the first of its kind to include both a motion-based pedometer and a heart rate monitor without demanding any straps or other external devices. Runners can now track distance, calories, and other factors over the course of days or weeks while also checking the performance of their heart at the same time. The system is stable enough to accurately capture all the data even while on the run, Sportline says.

Athletes can set up to five separate alarms to remind them of scheduled runs, time their runs for up to a full day, and count on the watch surviving temporary immersion in water up to 50 feet deep. The Solo 960 should be available now for $100 and is complemented by the Solo 925, a heart rate-only watch that adds the enhanced features of the 960 and goes on sale now for $80.
