BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. – Sept. 14, 2011 – Continuing its history of innovative excellence in elliptical cross trainers, Octane Fitness, LLC (www.octanefitness.com) has launched its Embedded Touch Screen, which infuses workouts with a variety of entertainment options and exercise feedback for enhanced motivation and performance.
“Everything we do at Octane is driven by how we can make workouts more effective, more comfortable and more enjoyable, and the new Embedded Touch Screen already is making an incredible impact on exercisers,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness.
Entertainment On Demand
Equipped with the Intel® Atom™ processor and an integrated 15.6” wide LCD screen powered by Netpulse™, the Embedded Touch Screen provides a multitude of entertainment features in addition to live TV and iPhone® and iPod® compatibility. Netpulse entertainment includes a library of thousands of on demand TV shows and music videos, movie trailers, news and sports content and Virtual Active™. Exercisers also can create custom playlists on the spot.
Easy to use, the intuitive touch screen simplifies navigation of entertainment and workout options with a fingertip, so exercisers simply get on and go.
Feedback that Fuels
Loaded with Octane's popular workouts, including the advanced 30:30 Interval, along with Octane's trademark workout boosters like X-Mode, GluteKicker and ArmBlaster, the Embedded Touch Screen elevates exercise feedback to a new level of interactivity, now offering video feedback and coaching, with visuals showing muscles used, remaining reps and correctional tips.
Exclusive to Octane Fitness, a split screen simultaneously displays personalized entertainment and live workout statistics, with a choice of several views, including simple, bar chart, heart rate active graph and track. This way, users can enjoy entertainment while keeping a close eye on intensity and progress throughout their routine, without having to toggle between screens or press any buttons.
Plus, exercisers can easily create an account through Netpulse to automatically track their workouts and create and edit their entertainment playlists. Exercisers with a Netpulse account can access their workout history and adjust personal preferences on any Octane elliptical equipped with the Embedded Touch Screen or from any Internet-enabled device.
The console also is ANT+ compatible, linking with Garmin® watches and heart rate monitor straps, as well as other ANT+ devices. All seamlessly upload to Garmin Connect™, Training Peaks™, Map My Run and eNew Leafsm.
Premium Performance and Availability
Health clubs benefit from easy management interface and automatic updates with new content and software upgrades, along with valuable machine usage reporting and member data. The network-enabled Embedded Touch Screen also features a USB data port, and a CSAFE®/FitLinxx® wireless option.
Beginning in October, the Embedded Touch Screen will be rolled out to four of Octane's commercial units: the Pro4700 and Pro3700 standing cross trainers, and the xR6000 and xR5000 xRide seated ellipticals.
Octane Fitness Background
