micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
My 12 year old son received this ball as a gift. At first he was excited to receive the ball to improve his soccer skills (would consider him advanced rec player). We compared it to the 9450 electronic basketball which provides immediate verbal coaching feedback and hoped the Micoach would provide the same. Unfortunately, the Micoach provides feedback on the path of the ball and the type of shot but not insight into how to improve (i.e. follow through, kick ball lower etc.) The tips also seem to be static not related to the prior kick that was made. Yes the ball does provide significant information but the method of communication back to the user is limited and requires higher level skills to unlock. It would be great if there the verbal feedback or even written coach more than feedback on how to improve the last kick but have not been able to find that information. If it exists please let me know.
I bought this Micoach Smart ball believing that this ball could be paired with Galaxy S6, and I downloaded the Smart ball app. But when I try to pair it with the ball, app says that it could not find the ball. What can I dow
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!
Absolutely love these socks. I am on my feet 11 hrs or more at work and found that these socks keep my feet cool and have much less swelling in my legs and am so much more comfortable at the end of the day.
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.
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 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.
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.
App only works w/newer devices. My IPhone 4 and IPad 2 are too old, even with up-to-date software. (Bluetooth) So, unless you're prepared to send your child outside with your newer, expensive devices, don't get this! I'm not letting my son play soccer w/my new IPad or phone, so back to the store for this one.
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!
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.
I bought this for personal training, really able to assist someone serious about improving their shot. No complaints, excellent ball (just a bit below Brazuca quality), fast charge, instant data. What's not to love.
The ball itself is great. It is of high quality construction, is easy to charge, and connects easily to the Android app on my phone. The app itself is very good for a product this early in its lifecycle. As an early adopter of the Zepp sensor for baseball, if the Adidas software team is anywhere near as good as the Zepp software team, I anticipate the app will only get better in a few months. It is already giving feedback to my daughter that she has not received in three years of playing travel soccer, and I expect this ball to elevate her game to a point that it would not get to without the feedback it provides.
Good product, easy set up and easy to use. I'm using it as coaching tool with my u11 travel team. The kids have fun seeing their stats, speed of kick, where they make contact on the ball etc. and allows me to work individually with them to improve their technique.
So the ball came with only 30% charged which prevents it being software updated unless charged over 50%. Without sw update it cannot be used with the mobile app. Either the ball or the charging station is broken from the get go so more than a week in, it hasn't been tested yet as confirming something is broken requires the ball to be fully uncharged (really bad engineering needing to fully uncharge before charging again). Try telling all that to a 12 year old. Hoping to get the ball & charging station replaced but have to say that at this price level, stuff shouldn't arrive broken and complications with charging tell the design is flawed to start with. My recommendation would be not to buy this version but wait & see if they get the technology right over couple new hardware updates.
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
this ball is seriously the best ball on the market still from mid 2014 to early 2015. This ball has helped me expert my knuckleball and My around the wall and over the wall shot. Thank you Adidas for creating a ball and app that's like a personal coach
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.
