Adidas has announced their Adidas MiCoach Smart Run smart watch, an exercise-orientated watch with a special optical-based heart rate monitor and a variety of sensors designed to help athletes maximise their work-out.
The watch also includes GPS, and features 3GB storage for music transmitted with Bluetooth wireless headphones. The watch will also deliver audible coaching guidance and demonstrated exercise routines on the screen.
“By combining the latest innovations, such as the Mio Wrist Based Continuous Heart Rate Technology, design and ease of use navigation, we consciously broke the template that defines other running watches,” said Simon Drabble, director of miCoach at adidas.
“But it’s not just that which sets us apart from the competition. As part of the miCoach training system, it truly unlocks human potential by making smart training easy and accessible. Whether you’re starting a new running program, training for a 10k or competing in another marathon, miCoach SMART RUN will make your training more efficient so you get the results you want,” continued Drabble.
The watch integrates with the miCoach system, which recently arrived on Windows Phone courtesy of Nokia. The accessory costs $399 and will arrive in November.
