Adidas' miCoach Fit Smart uses your wrist to measure health data

So the tech blooming is all about ‘all things wearables’ at the moment and with the mobile phones seeming to get old school, the companies are focusing more towards the smartwatches and other kinds of similar wearables. Even sports companies have been drawn to this trend which so perfectly suits them. The miCoach Fit Smart by Adidas appeared unofficially about two weeks ago but today the company has finally introduced the device. The wristband was revealed in San Francisco, during theWearable Technologies Conference 2014 and it has been designed to measure your burned calories, heart rate, distance covered, pace and more fitness stats.

It is not just the inside of the device which is quite attractive but the outer design is quite noteworthy too. The available colors are going to be black and white and the strap will be made from soft-touch silicone for maximum comfort. There is also a small strip of LEDs which are interestingly going to change color depending on the intensity of a workout.

Paul Gaudio, GM of digital sports at Adidas, told Engadget about the practicality of the companion miCoach apps saying that "What we did, by working with elite coaches, was bring an experience to help people set weekly goals and training plans. We took the things that have been very successful and implemented them here with the Fit Smart. It is about encouraging people to get active and stay active. It can also be a motivational tool; it can coach you to be better."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
