miCoach: adidas Launches Fitness Tracking App
The free application aims to act as your coach and personal trainer, sharing data that will help you better train.
Adidas has launched miCoach as a free application, turning your smartphone into a coach and personal trainer – without the need for any supplemental devices. The app has capitalized on the ‘missing link’ between the chip-driven stats tracking of Nike+ (requiring purchase of said chip), and the analytical capabilities of a well-designed smartphone app (already in your hand, oftentimes during your run).
Rather than simply collect data, the free app provides workouts and conditioning tailored to specific sports via a real-time audible training system, featuring pace-triggered voice coaching and personalized workout plans designed by professional trainers.
