Adidas has announced the new MiCoach Fit Smart which is a new wristband and can monitor the heart rate and also is a fitness tracker. This was announced at the Wearable Technologies USA Conference held in San Francisco. The device collects data like the pace, distance, and stride rate as you run, as well as estimates how much calories you have burned.
Fit Smart can also measure heart rate along with the calories burnt in real time. The LED strip running down the side of the face of the device acts as a sort of effort-o-meter, illuminating blue, green, yellow, or red with the intensity of your workout. The device also has vibrations which tell you when you’ve hit your performance targets without having to look at your wrist.
The device will also show the time and looks like a regular watch. There is also the Adidas mobile app which can connect to this device and monitor the tracking results. You can set and track progress toward weekly goals and long-term training plans using the app. The miCoach Train and Run app connects via Bluetooth LE.
