Heart Rate Monitor With Textile Strap
Works perfect with miCoach for Windows Phone 8 on my Lumia 620
I bought this monitor for the usage on my Nokia Lumia 620 in the hope of having Bluetooth Smart support. Last week I saw the miCoach app launched as the first one enabling Bluetooth Smart. Awesome training esp. also indoors with heart-rate tracking and coaching!

Great Performance Monitoring Product!
I've used this for over 2 years to in the Gym with cycle classes to monitor elapsed time, heart rate & calories burnt. I use the micoach app on my iphone & sit it in front of me so I can monitor my heart rate & calories burnt during the class (you can't do this with watch based monitors). Great performance monitoring!!

This heart rate monitor is great! It's extremely accurate and works very well with the miCoach app. The textile strap is comfortable and easy to adjust, put on, and remove.
Also, as a woman, it's not noticeable at all when I wear it under my shirt.
I have had some connectivity issues when my phone is in my backpack. The app kept saying "Bluetooth found. Bluetooth lost. Bluetooth found. Bluetooth lost..." nonstop without a break. But when I looked at the results afterwards, it appeared uninterrupted.
Don't forget to take it off after you're done working out. Otherwise the dried sweat makes your skin bond to the connective part of the strap and it hurts to take it off.

Good Product, App campatibility can be better
The product is good, but it doesn't pair with S-Health app on my samsung Galaxy S4. I was looking for pairing it with S-Health as it gives an option to track calories burnt and calories consumed.
This device pairs only with micoach app. But this app doesn't have an option of tracking calories consumed... so its difficult to keep-up with my wait-loss goals !!! Now I have to use SHealth and MiCoach. Using two apps (instead of one) would drain the battery of any phone :(
Below adds would be better
Should pair with SHealth app or
an option to track calories consumed in micoach app.

This is my first heart rate monitor and works perfectly with my android.
The big range of training plans for different sports helps you doing it right wether you are an experienced athlete or not.

As far as I know, this works great. I can't tell, though, as it does not work for Android yet. Once Google finally updates the Bluetooth stack with 4.0 (BTLE), hopefully Adidas will update the micoach app to work with the sensor. In the meantime, it does not work with Android, it does not work with the iPod Touch 4G. It will only work with the newest iPhones and the iPod Touch 5G.

Horrible! Unusable! Want a refund!
The GPS function on my phone works fine when working out and using micoach until I try to use the heart rate monitor and it loses its signal constantly unless I run with the arm pouch or iPhone in my hand.

It's great to be freed from the Connect, now that BLTE is available. The only downside is that the HRM strap continues to have some minor issues. I actually was forced to upgrade from my old equipment b/c the strap died after ~ 2 years of routine use. The new strap does not always register correct HR, unless it has electrode gel applied at the beginning of the workout. Otherwise, I am very happy with the product and it's interface with the mobile app.

It's being a week of intensive use and the device works well up to 30 minutes of exercise. After it just gives absurd values to the iPhone like 40bpm when running at 8 km/h pace a little further simply start loosing connection until it stop working.

Best Coaching Device On Market
I have been comparing my wife's micoach and its capabilities with my unfortunate purchase of a similar product from an industry big player. micoach is a much much better product, which will truly makes you a better athlete where it is just a slogan of the other company. The micoach web site is almost perfectly designed, with fantastic preset periodized training programs that are dialed into specific intensity zones. If you want to alter the workout calendar, it is very simple to do with a click and drag to pull a workout from one day and move it to another day. It is also easy to alter preset workouts plans to integrate more cross training if you like, which is what I did with my wife's plan. I started with a level 6 10K plan, and reduced the running days to increase the strength training days. Speaking of weight training days, the animated demo of how to perform specific movements is excellent and is something the NO ONE ELSE has. This is hands down the best on the market. I can't wait to get mi own. Next up, if Adidas could design a program for cyclists with BlueTooth interface with a PowerTap, I will have died and gone to heaven!
