Adidas launched its own Android-based smart watch although unlike the Samsung Galaxy Gear or the Sony Smart Watch 2, the version from Adidas is fitness-focused, as expected. The Adidas miCoach Smart Run smartwatch, priced at $399, runs Android 4.1.1 and features a 1.45-inch, 184 x 184 color touchscreen and 4GB of internal storage.
The miCoach Smart Run has a built-in MP3 player and works via Bluetooth wireless audio. It doubles as a receiver for audible coaching guidance via Bluetooth headphones.
For battery life, the miCoach Smart Run promises a 14-day charge in casual mode. Other modes like marathon mode and training mode however reduces battery life considerably. Marathon mode on the miCoach Smart Run reduces battery life to eight hours while training mode, the miCoach Smart Run lasts four hours. The reason for this is that on these modes, data is collected every five seconds.
The miCoach Smart Run also has a GPS technology that lets users see on-screen stats for speed and distance. It also makes it possible for users to log routes though the miCoach Smart Run’s GPS functionality. Additionally, the miCoach Smart Run also has a monitor for heart rate.
With the Adidas miCoach Smart Run smart watch, you can even set up a miCoach account where you can access your data using your mobile device or computer and sync settings between your watch and your web-based account.
