IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAR Sports is excited to announce the expansion of its groundbreaking app to the Android platform. With hundreds of workouts and training plans, PEAR's real-time coaching system is transforming the way people get fit and stay healthy. And now both iPhone and Android users can take advantage of this innovative system, which includes a custom heart rate monitor and earphones designed specifically for fitness pursuits.
"We want to share PEAR's ability to tailor workouts with more and more people, everyone from fitness fanatics to those getting off the couch for the very first time," says Kristian Rauhala, president and co-founder of PEAR Sports. "With our app now on both iPhone and Android, more people can experience the convenience and fun, whether their goals are simple weight loss, advanced strength training, or the next Boston Marathon."
WHAT IS PEAR? PEAR takes all of the data a typical heart-rate monitor provides—heart rate, calories, distance, time, and more—and turns it into real-time coaching. Once PEAR calibrates to your current fitness level, simply select a training plan from one of our coaches—renowned experts in weight loss, nutrition, fitness, running, and other athletic activities—and get started. PEAR will deliver a smart, personalized workout that coaches you in real time based on your body's response to the workout, making sure you're always training at maximum efficiency. The PEAR system includes PEAR's app, Bluetooth wireless heart-rate monitor, and Stride earphones. A full library of PEAR workouts and plans are available in-app and online at my.pearsports.com. The complete system is available at pearsports.com and select retailers like AT&T and Best Buy for $99. The PEAR Sports app can be downloaded for free at the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Currently, the PEAR Android app is available on the Samsung Galaxy S4 only, but compatibility with other devices is in the works.
INTUITIVE FEATURES: Experience interactive, heart-rate-based coaching, a full workout and plan store, third-party music compatibility, data and GPS tracking, direct social sharing, and more. After a workout, view your results on your phone, tablet, or laptop via a personal cloud account at my.pearsports.com.
LATEST UPGRADES: PEAR has completely redesigned the app experience, with a new and more streamlined look, easier navigation while downloading workouts, and more detailed stats. Users can also access their account and stats online from any Web-enabled device.
