The renowned sport equipment company made the entry into the fitness watch market by lunching this attractive multi-functional gadget that, with its performances and especially by its modern sporty design can easily compete with the biggest players in this ever-growing field. Adidas miCoach Smart Run watch is a true personal trainer, which tracks the heart rate of the wearer, without using a chest-mounted heart rate monitor, since it comes integrated beneath the case. The watch also features Bluetooth GPS and tracks the wearer’s movements, recording his or her performances and displaying improvements on a large LCD touch screen. Although someone may call it too robust, I find the design of this novelty from Adidas the best looking among actual fitness watches.
Adidas miCoach Smart Run is a serious fitness watch that provides numerous functions, pretty useful for both amateur and professional sports men and women. Ideal for running, this multi-functional gadget records your speed and distance via GPS, as well as your movements via an accelerometer. Combined performances can be analyzed via special coaching programs, thus helping you to progress.
Numerous training routines can be found on the miCoach website, which can even be seen on the touch sensitive 1.45in LCD screen, through petit virtual models. Via Bluetooth headphones you can even heard some verbal instructions and encouragements. Those headphones can also play your favorite songs during the workout, since the watch has the 3GB memory. The watch operates by modified Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1.
According to the manufacturer, if you use all capacities, including GPS, heart rate monitor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the watch will work between 4 and 8 hours with one charging. Battery life goes up to 14 days if you use it just as the timekeeping device. To fully recharge the battery, you will need around 3 hours.
The case of this striking watch has the diameter of 48.4 mm and it is 15.6 mm thick. However, it weights just 80.5 grams which is pretty good for such a robust watch with integrated equipments. The optical heart rate monitor is placed centrally underneath the case, while the case-back also integrates a charging mini dock, providing a micro USB port.
Adidas miCoach Smart Run is an ergonomic watch, available with an attractive, double-width rubber bracelet and buckle. It costs around $400, which selects it among fitness watches with higher price tags.
