micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
A good ball. Better than the bottom replica version and isn't that far away from the match ball in performance. In fact it is better than those Mitre match balls most Sunday League teams use. It's quite light and moves nicely in the air. Nice quality too.
This was a present for my wife, we were looking at Fitbit, Apple Watch and this. We already used the train and run app so we decided for this in the end. It works great, synced up to iPhone and updated firmware first thing and the soft strap is plesent enough to wear all day.
Wonderful and helpful. My son is very dedicated to soccer (football) and this ball is a wonderful tool in his kit. The ball not only records data to help improve, but it also provides coaching on techniques and methods to get better results. Kicking any ball for hours is a great way to improve - kicking this ball with direct feedback is amazing! It is important to read the instructions - things like how to connect, how to charge, alignment, etc. I had no problems - because, I read instructions before using anything. Now, I'm going to recommend this for all my son's teammates. The sharing feature also makes it possible to share results with coaches and trainer.
I've had this watch for about a week or so and every time I charge it something ends up not being able to work like step counting but that only happened once and now it only tracks steps and heart rate but stopped calculating calories burned. How do I fix it?
I absolutely love this watch. I have lost 40 pounds and 10 inches in the one year I've had the watch. I had to replace the watch a couple months ago because it would no longer find my heart rate. It looks like I'm in the same boat again. I'll have to go replace it for the second time I less than a year for the same issue. I love the watch, but I think I might have to go else where because I can't keep wasting money on replacing it every few months.
I like it, but trying to get use to it is taking a little time. Having a problem when I take it to work. I'm a truck driver and it seems to count step in the bumpy ride. Trying things to get it right!
I LOVE being able to track my heart rate, get coaching for a run, track my run, and listen to music all in one small device. This has been a great device to have. When I have had questions, the tech support has been very helpful. It has functioned great. It was easy to sync my music and playlists. I love the variety of run/ interval options. The GPS signal locks in pretty quickly. It does need quality bluetooth headphones - cheaper ones won't work well.
I bought this soccer balls for my son and my best friend's birthday. The smartest gift ever they enjoy it every day. My son loves it, it has helped him to get better at playing soccer and has given him more confidence when he plays with his soccer team. I truly love this ball. What a great way to help soccer lovers. Thank you Adidas ❤️
I bought this ball for my son for Christmas and now that we are into the season it is losing air slowly. I checked it under water but could not find the hole. The ball needs to be pumped every day before practice which causes chuckles among his teammates who rightly question the quality. I am very disappointed with the purchase.
I just bought this ball for myself because i needed a new one. The ball feels really nice and is just great. I am expecting it to last for a long time since it is made with quality materials. I recommend this to all
I have had my FitSmart for a couple years. I only recently started wearing it all the time. I decided to start tracking my activity. It will just reset it's time to 12:00, losing all my data. I can just be sitting there, walking, doesn't matter. If it decides, my info is gona and I have to sync again to get it to the correct time. Super frustrating when you're trying to track progress. Would recommend this to everyone if it didn't have this issue. Would like to know why this keeps happening and if it is happening to others. If I can't get it to correct, I'll have to switch brands.
Overall perfect sports essential watch. Tells the time, then with one button shows you your Steps, Distance, Calories burned and more. Calories burned calculates the active calories and passive calories as well, so there's no more guessing. Tracking a Gym workout or Run on the street/treadmill is super easy to do, it's accurate, and super user friendly with the miCoach Train & Run app, and it syncs quickly through bluetooth. The app also offers free training and running programs based on your goals, and has an in-ear coach that you can listen to. The Heart Rate monitor is perfect for training, and there is also a progress bar on the side of the display that shows you how close you are to hitting your goal. NOTE: The picture makes the watch look like a hard plastic type of material, however it is really silicone. Very soft against your skin.
The socks look great. The feel durable and comfortable. However, they were advertised as training socks on adidas.com, and they turned out to be soccer socks. This isn't a huge issue as the socks are great. It's just for those who are nit-picky. Otherwise, these are fantastic socks, and look great on feet.
I love this watch and I have not stopped using it since had it, but unfortunately after just 4 months the strap has snapped and I can no longer use it, trying to find out if it is covered under warranty or if this can be replaced.
The quality and style of the product is great. I would really rate the product if I wanted it purely for monitoring HR whilst running, but I bought it for HR monitoring whilst performing strength training. I wanted it for the visual HR zone cues which I think is a fantastic feature. Unfortunately it gave wildly inaccurate readings whilst lifting weights, rendering it unusable for my needs - 55 bpm v 154 bpm from the chest band that I was comparing it with. I have returned the item and I am currently awaiting a refund. If they could sort out the the inaccuracies of the device whilst weight training then I would highly recommend the product and would definitely re-purchase. For now it is back to wearing the chest band!
I recently bought this product and it looks really good and is very comfortable. I am still discovering all the functions and things it can do after syncing it to the app. The only thing I am stuck on is I cant seem to work out how to get it to reset the features to 0 every morning? e.g. calories, distance etc. I know a lot of other apps do this automatically but at the moment mine is just adding up everyday. Can anyone help?
I got my watch in July 2015 & have waited until I had at least 6 months use before writing this. I knew going into this that there were "issues" surrounding the time taken to get GPS lock, & when I first started using the watch did I not understand what people were griping about. It took less that a minute & worked fine. For the past 2-3 months that has all changed. Sometimes is takes 5 minutes. Other times I give up & just use the stopwatch & listen to some tunes. On some occasions the distance tracking flat out does not work. A route I know is 5km only shows as 1.2km. As I am relatively new to running I really like to focus on distance as well as time (trying to remain under 6 min k's) & it is really annoying when you look at your wrist after a few minutes & see that you have gone nowhere. On the positives: MP3 player is great with bluetooth head phones. Aesthetically the watch is perfect. The right size and fit. The touch screen is easy to navigate & works well. Just make sure you have everything set prior to setting off on your run. Being a short distance runner I have no issues with battery life. Sadly these things do not overcome the basic fundamental fact that this is a running/fitness watch that just does not work well......for me.
just got a new smart run today. Plugged it on charge, after 50% charging completed i tried to update the software and thats when the watch went blank and doe not seem to be working anymore. It wouldn't recharge, do no turn on, it is completely dead!!!
My first training watch and it's fantastic. Very accurate on mileage and pace...heart rate and GPS are great features, too. Takes a few attempts to get comfortable with, but easy to figure out. I love syncing it up and re-tracing my steps, if you will, online. I haven't yet used it for a training plan, though I did some of the training workouts and enjoyed the use of HR to manage pace. I've run two marathons--one with no watch, the second with this one. Having this one helped me pace immensely, and also keep an eye on my HR. I don't think I'm using it for all it's worth, but everything I do use is worth it for me.
I bought a FitSmart watch with the intention of working out but shortly after ended up in a wheelchair due to a bad fall. I was wondering if the FitSmart would work the same if someone was confined to a wheelchair. So far Ive had the watch for a year and it hasn't shown any signs of deterioration. I like the display features and how it is low profile. It would be nice if there was mode for people who are in wheelchairs or even some sort of step converter to help.
I have used the miadidas app for a while and with the fit smart, my fitness has improved. I like that I can use the watch with or without the phone. I can at a glance see my heart rate with the colours on the side, and pace, stride etc. I can start and stop my runs and exercise with the watch by itself. I can set up a training plan on the app and use it with the watch. It also has a daily step counter. gives accurate daily calorie expenditure. so much more, you just have to use to find out. Well worth the $$ imho. My favorite fitness toy!
Let's be honest, the whole wearable market is starting with first versions. For a V1 the Smart Run DELIVERS. GPS, Bluetooth Headphones, WiFi, HeartRate.... what else do you want? Apple Watch doesn't deliver and your phone will end up smashed in one of your runs since it doesn't have GPS. I have a feeling Version 2 is going to be designed like a G-Shock..... be waterproof and have an updated display.
I love this ball because of the real time feedback, and the spot on aesthetic this is a 5 star ball and higher quality than a standard match approved ball. The only problem I going is that it is all white so after playing with it it get a little dirty. Yet the ball clean very easy, except some grass stains and dirt between the patches remain.
But when you start using micoach, it's the worse. I don't understand how such a reputable company make such a bad coaching program. If you curious what I'm talking about. Make a micoach account ans try to simply reset your password. From there watch your frustration grow as this amazingly bad software take down everything else.
Ordered ball for grandson's Christmas, would not inflate or charge. Returned and ordered second ball. Left second ball on charger 24 hours and only showed charge of 1%...Great idea, but poor technology. Cannot recommend.
