Runners will be glad to know that they’re now able to track their runs using GPS mapping, monitor their heart rate, listen to their favorite music and get real-time coaching in a single, simple, color touch screen running watch.


The adidas miCoach Smart Run is an advanced and intuitive wrist based running device that’s set to revolutionize the running watch.

We like that there are no cables, straps and additional sensors on this all-in-one device. Smart Run uses optical technology to track your heart rate from your wrist while a built-in accelerometer counts every step so you can monitor your stride rate. GPS tracks your speed, distance and logs your route and an MP3 player with Bluetooth wireless audio delivers music and audible coaching guidance, eliminating flailing headphone cables and music players.

“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.
