micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I've had my watch for about 3 months. At first it worked great and for every workout. Now it has trouble finding my heart rate and mid-workout it will drop my heart rate down lower than 100. I don't know who to call or who to contact to get it fixed. It was working great and want to continue to use it if it works. HELP!
This bag allows me to bring a whole week's worth of workout gear to work, and I just take home the clothes I use in a separate bag--so convenient! I do wish the outer fabric of the bag were more fashionable, but it is definitely functional!
Took a while to figure out how to work it (mainly down to me not reading the instructions properly). Was a little disappointed that haven't been able to get it to sync to the multi sport app but the micoach app works well and gives accurate and detailed readings.
Adidas has always made supior products made to last when i purchased the excel back pack i assumed i was getting a durable bookbag it lasted for two weeks before the zipper in the main compart ment began to frey i only had four textbooks a three ring binder a tablet and misellainious items e.g. pens ,pencils etc.so i sewed the frey and contuined use but it freyed sgain at wich time the load spring strap also syarted to frey i am disapointed with this product and i feel a replacement is in order
I am a total geek about training devices, programs and data and have had far more than my share of devices after competitive bike racing for several year. I have had the FitSmart for just over 1 year and have used it 5 - 6 times per week every week. Product Quality: Battery life is the same as the day I got, which is more than I can say for my phone. The heart rate monitor is just as accurate as chest strap monitors. Band is very comfortable and durable. Design:Well thought out an complete. The watch communicates with you via colored lights and vibrations to let you know what training zone you are in, if it's the right zone for the workout and gives you 5 seconds notice before a training zone change. You can workout with or without your phone and easily synch the workout afterward. Watch paired w phone allows you to track speed and distance by GPS and stride sensor, heart rate, calories burned, fastest mile and elevation. Micoach Awesomeness: The micoach website and app interface brings it all together. On the site, you can design your own training program, ranging from running races, to sport specific, to general fitness. The programs integrate strength, endurance and flexibility. The programs are periodized to gradually build up your capacity and taper your efforts to prevent overtraining. The running workouts have great variety, from steady state endurance building to intervals to build speed and strength. Adidas teaches you to train the right way! During strength training workouts, the micoach app includes an animated video to show you how to properly perform an exercise right on the screen of your phone. You can track your weight, reps, even the shoes you wore. Their program has it all, if you get geeked out like I do, you can deep dive into the data, or if you want easy guidance and feedback, they make it quick and simple. Seriously, the best overall product out there!
Have used the Fit Smart for about six months while exercising. Never a problem. Accurate heart monitoring while cycling, spinning, running on a treadmill and working out in other ways. Establish goals based on heart rate and monitor heart response during cooling off.
These are a bit smaller than the usual shin guards but they are extremely light weight. They are comfortable and the outer plastic is very hard and protects you very well from hits. I would recommend this to anyone.
This X_CELL comes with a high quality chest strap so that it can measure your heart rate. It also comes with a clip so that you can attach it to shorts or trousers, so there's 2 choices there. It connects quickly to the Multi Sport App and syncs well too.
use only for 3 weeks but all good. the colours when your hr changing is awesome and the hr sensor working excelent - use for sweaty spinning classes and the sensor dont have any problem to rating at all.
I bought the fit smart because I wanted a wrist heart rate monitor at a reasonable price. I don't need GPS etc because I already have that on my phone. This watch does exactly what I need it to do, monitor my heart rate (accurately) and tell me when I am in/out of zone by buzzing but not too often to become annoying. So far battery life seems good and it is easy to charge. The wrist strap is very comfortable but I'm not sure how durable it is going to be. The small is a good fit and I do have small wrists definitely buy large if you are male.
These knee pads stay in place even after playing 3 straight games in a hot gym no tugging and repositioning after every trip down the court. Worn other brands that do not match up with these, only wish they came in Navy!
I was always keen on the Fit Smart and it has now become compatible with Windows Phone. I received my Fit Smart a couple of days ago and have used it twice now for a run and for a gym session along with wearing it as a standby watch. First of all, the fit is really nice, i went with the black colour which i do notice shows up dust but that's not important. The battery life is as good as they say with a half charge lasting four days with two hours of training. I've only used the training in 'Free' mode and it's been great to see my heart rate in the gym. Previously i've used the micoach app on my phone along with the HR strap around my chest. Wearing just the watch is a lot easier. During the run it was great to see my distance and it vibrated each 1km to give me a split update which was very handy.
The texture and fit are nice just to bully, I will say o was looking to use them for socccer, ha. But they would be nice if I played volleyball, but as for basketball would ask for a little shape, and sleeker design
Excellent gadget. At first it was difficult to sync to my iphone 5 s , but they were my mistakes. It's practical , light and handy. It communicates in real time with micoach app and that gives you advantages
The Adidas MI Coach watch is a great tool for any athlete, physical education teacher or anyone wanting to get fit. Reasonably priced but if you want quality you need to pay for it. Highly recommend it to anyone thinking about a new sports watch investment.
Simple to use and works flawlessly. The heart rate monitor works brilliantly and the coloured zones make it easy to keep track of how hard your working at any time during my workouts, and has attracted a lot of attention in the gym and when out running. Using this in free workout mode is simple and straight forward and doesn't require me to carry and mess around with my mobile phone whilst training which is a bonus. Going over the stats after syncing helps me keep track of where I can improve, especially when out running. Not having GPS could be a seen as a hindrance, however if you upload your route and manually input your own 'laps' helps you accurately track you pace per KM to help you improve. Also if your working out on a stationery treadmill, rower or cross trainer in doors it wont log how far you went but this info can be updated and added manually after you've completed your work out Haven't tried any of the countless workouts you can download but the ones I've looked at are in depth and look like they would be very effective. Awesome piece of kit and looks good too would fully recommend
If you plan on buying these then I advise you to order a size up then what you initially think, and also order another one two sizes up (return shipping is free). The sizes are all over the place. I am about a 15" (5'11, 176lb) calf but the large was very tight. Then I ordered a XL and it's still pretty tight. Would've loved to try out the XXL but I need these for a game pretty soon and don't think I'll receive the other pair in time. Other than the grip on the sizing it seems to offer a good amount of protection and the pads flex to your movements.
There are so many great features that made my workouts easy and goals very clear. It looks good on the wrist and was very user friendly. Perfect for a person just starting out or a more serious athlete.
I have been using the FIT Smart for several weeks now and it has exceeded my expectations. After playing with the watch for about 15 minutes I was able to get a good handle on the interface, which is very simple. It has three buttons, a multi-purpose "select/home" button and two scrolling buttons. What I really like about the watch is that it doesn't have excess features that you won't want to use. It has several useful modes (assessment, free workout, planned workout) and that's it. Simple. Syncing with your MiCoach app is done via bluetooth. The watch actually looks pretty good too. I have a black watch and wear it most places. The watch is almost entirely covered in rubber and is easy to keep clean. From the coach perspective, I have used these watches with my athletes to prescribe them workouts during their off days or when rehabbing injuries. You have to create a MiCoach profile for them, but after you do that, it is easy to have them do the assessment workout and then assign them conditioning based on their HR zones. Just an FYI it seems to work better to run the assessment test outside as opposed to on a treadmill. Regardless, you may want to run the assessment several times before using the HR zones. This will allow you to get the most out of the test.
I am a recreational jogger and the miCoach FIT SMART training watch for my needs perfectly. While I was on the run the watch displayed my heart rate, distance travelled, total time, and was even able to notify me of my 1km split times. I have used a different heart rate monitor in the past to track my training, but it only gave me a partial view of the run and I had to use a separate app to monitor my distance, splits, and to track my progress in my training regimen. When I got home the watch paired seamlessly to the miCoach app clearly showing me all the data collected by the FIT SMART. I was not only able to see the raw data, but the app charted out my pace, stride rate, and heart rate vs. time so I could easily see where improvements could be made. It even was able to extrapolate and find predicted my 5k, 10k, half, and full marathon times. Just makes me look forward to running!
I found the FitSmart to be a great tool to keep me constantly updated throughout my training sessions. Not having to deal with a chest strap to monitor my heart rate was a great appeal, and for runs, the FitSmart stayed locked in on my heart rate without any problems. I also compared it to my Garmin GPS watch, and the distance reading was identical, so I'm not at all concerned about the lack of GPS function here - no calibration needed either! I also noticed that the FitSmart pretty well nailed my Stride Rate during a run, which was something I wasn't expecting, but was happy to see when I completed my first run. The colored zone indicators are great, even during weight training sessions to keep me working at the right intensities just using the Free workout option. I'm 68" tall, 190lbs, and a medium build, and the Small FitSmart fits me great. The silicone band was slick and comfortable, and the display is pretty cool. I have the White FitSmart, and it draws positive attention at the gym. It pairs well with my Samsung Galaxy S4 - (so happy to have a wearable that syncs w/ Android's OS). The bluetooth Sync is simple, and it's nice that the FitSmart can store a handful of sessions before pairing so I don't have to worry about it until I want to check out the performance graphs. The battery life is pretty great too, I probably charge it once every week or two with moderate training use, and full time use as my go-to watch. The buttons are simple - having only 3 buttons to push reduces my chances of getting too far removed from whatever I'm trying to accomplish w/ the device. All in all - I'd say this is a great addition to my training tools, I love the immediate feedback of HR, but even more, I love the Zone Indicator Color, and the fact I don't have to have my phone on me when I train - I can just sync it all later. Great Product, looking forward to updates to the app's graphs after Free workouts, and the HR sensor accuracy while I'm lifting.
I love this product. I had the "Zone" when it came out and loved the simplicity of that for training and now they have came out with a better version that easily syncs to my iphone to download all my stats for review later. The changing colors relative to your HR zones is great, as well as the overall ease of use and simplicity. I even got one for my wife and she is so not tech savy at all, and she also likes how simple and easy it is. That says a lot..... If there was one critic is that the large band is really large and I should have got the small as there is no medium I believe. Other than that love the product. Keep up the good work.
The miCoach FIT SMART was right on with my current needs. I love that when going out for a run it was simple to see exactly where I was and that I was hitting my potential. It was great to get a coached workout that I could sync very simply to the miCoach train & run app following. I did use it to simply track my data during a recreational soccer game which also proved to be very helpful. I got great stats afterwards to help me understand the effort I actually put in and I could compare game to game. This is great for me as I get back into game shape. All in all the features were very simple, the setup was easy, and the band itself was very comfortable both while playing and just going for a run, which made me even more excited to use it.
My 14yo player has wanted these for awhile. They are hard to find - happy to find the Adidas direct store. He likes them a lot, the size small fits a 100lb kid well. Did not realize only 1 came in the package when ordered from our reg online sports store. Then they out of stock there again. Adidas store had the other one we needed at the same price. Happy with them so far.
I have torn my meniscus in both knees and after wearing these pads they feel great. I wear these over other knee pads and they give me great support. I'm not recommending wearing these pads alone if you have knee problems but they do feel comfortable. They run small. I'm usually an xl but these I had to get 2xl.
