PEAR Sports launches the Square One, the Smart Training Intelligence Product with seamless music integration.


PEAR is more than just heart rate training. It’s a boost from an upbeat song, a coaching cue that causes you to dig deeper and a brand new workout to keep you motivated. PEAR is coaching, motivation and a lot of fun.

PEAR Sports, LLC., announced the launch of a patented Training Intelligence system and its introductory product, the PEAR Square One™. With Training Intelligence technology, PEAR revolutionizes run and fitness training by eliminating the distraction and the difficulty of using and understanding a heart rate monitor. PEAR provides hundreds of personalized training plans and workouts designed by a team of world-class coaches. The PEAR Square One includes a wireless heart rate sensor, foot pod and sport earphones that work together to deliver real-time audio coaching and on-demand audio stats based on how the body is responding to the workout. PEAR Square One also infuses your favorite music seamlessly into the coaching cues for maximum results and enjoyment.

“The PEAR vision is simple --to train smarter and enjoy it so that you can get the most out of each workout and accomplish your goals,” says Kristian Rauhala, PEAR co-founder and President. “PEAR is more than just heart rate training. It’s a boost from an upbeat song, a coaching cue that causes you to dig deeper and a brand new workout to keep you motivated. PEAR is coaching, motivation and a lot of fun.”

Be it to train for a marathon, lose weight or simply to get in shape, PEAR has designed over a hundred goal-based training plans with the help of key partners and world-class coaches Matt Fitzgerald and Jenny Hadfield. As one of the world’s most respected endurance sports writers and experts, Matt Fitzgerald has coached and authored or coauthored 18 books on running, triathlon, sports nutrition, and general fitness, including Racing Weight, Brain Training for Runners, and Triathlete Magazine’s Essential Week-by-Week Training Guide.

“The traditional method of heart rate training requires an understanding of formulas and science, as well as constant attention to your watch, which can take the fun out of training. PEAR takes care of the calculations and planning and delivers audio stats in real time so that runners can focus on performing and enjoying their runs,” says Fitzgerald.

Jenny Hadfield is an internationally recognized coach with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science. She is the author of Running for Mortals and Marathoning for Mortals and regularly contributes to Runner’s World and Women’s Running. “The magic of PEAR is that it guides you in training with the natural flow of your life and always at the right pace which translates to improved energy, recovery rates and performance. It's an effective training tool for athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all abilities. From beginner to advanced, PEAR offers a range of plans that are fun and motivational and can make anyone feel like they are being coached by a pro,” says Hadfield.

The PEAR Square One is designed for running - lightweight, intuitive, compact and compatible with Apple’s iPod shuffle®. Alongside the PEAR Square One, users receive a PEAR wireless heart rate sensor, a PEAR foot pod and PEAR sport earphones featuring a patented on-demand button and Earlock™ design by Surefire.
