micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
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 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.
I buy all my running gear from Adidas from shoes to training tops and shorts and the socks. I really like the quality and feel good factor but the customer service is outstanding from online through to delivery and the website is really easy to navigate
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!
I use this running light because I primarily run at night and I wanted something to make me stand out a little more for passing cars etc. It's light weight and it's big enough that you can wrap it around your forearm when you have winter gloves on. It's a nice bright red and I have noticed that cars react to it when they see it (slow down) which is all you can ask for.
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.
A good fit, quality feel, and very comfortable during running but (for me) the sock is very thin. I'm an ex rugby player, so a little 'heavy' handed in life, I managed to tare the first pair I put on, but this is me nothing to do with the product. Like all the equipment I've bought and worn over the near 40 years in wearing adidas, quality is why I continue to buy from this company.
Purchased in November 2015 (to replace an older non Bluetooth version) and now it's stopped working properly in January. The heart rate monitor is now delivering very erratic results to say the least - skips from 50bpm to 209 without me even moving, let alone changing pace! It makes it absolutely impossible to use for training and to achieve any of the zones which is obviously the point of owning one in the first place. Such a shame as I have been using the app for running for four years and I think the app is great, in fact I love it! Have tried all the tips on the forums re-installing the app, new battery, moistening the strap, even a new strap etc. with no improvement, it's just a Rubbish product DO NOT BUY THIS
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.
I only bought this because miCoach stopped supporting Ant+ on Android, which my previous adidas heart rate monitor used. The results are very erratic, and apparently at (an admittedly unfit) 42 years old, I can still reach 208 bpm several times during a steady run where I'm averaging in the 150-170 area, depending on effort. I love adidas products, but I would steer people away from this one, as it was a waste of money, and nowhere near as good as the old Ant+ version.
I've had no problems with my watch, the adidas app and syncing is a great way to track your activity. Watch also looks great on your wrist and can be used to go out too. Battery life isn't great and it does take some time to pick up gps when starting, apart from this sound bit of kit!
Comfortable textile strap around the chest for which the HRM clips onto. Hardly noticed it on a 3 hr trail. Lost connectivity to the phone once which I'd put at the top of my hydration backpack. Didn't have the problem after moving it to one of the front pouches on the straps. Micoach has a good elevation/HR run profile which helps me train optimally!
I really like this watch... It has nice design and a good functionality. BUT.. This watch has given me a rash after 10 days. I don't have any allergies accept for this watch. I would love to recommend it to everybody, but I can't because of the rash :(
Please wait while more information about katcharel is loaded. I'm from: Czech Republic - GPS connection hangs where the iPhone has a good signal - HR falls out - restarts during the run - restarts when connected to computer. Cannot copy music to it. - Battery life Extremely disappointing
Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and he really likes it but there seems to be a glitch with the heart rate readings in the app. It doesn't appear in the list unless he turns his phone landscape to the graphs and when he went back on the app, the heart rate readings had disappeared. He googled it and said others have had the same problem. For all other features it works great and he's pleased but does just seem to have a problem with HR monitor and app function.
The idea of this product is great; however, the execution is very poor. It's clearly not engineered by people that use the product. In order for it to start, it needs to initialize the GPS and the HR, but the HR stopped working after approximately 6 months, so since then the workouts do not start, which makes the product completely worthless. Basically, it worked moderately well for about 6 months and since has not worked at all. I wouldn't recommend this product.
Nearly sent the product back as it was complicated to set up. However I stuck with it and it now seems easy to use. I recently updated the app on my phone and now I can't turn the watch off!!! I've tried pressing the central button down, holding it down, I've tried pressing all the other buttons but nothing works. Now I have to remember to keep the watch charged up at al times. So not impressed with that aspect of the watch
I bought this to measure heart rate after a long lay off due to illness (to make sure I didn't overdo it!)I found chest strap models uncomfy so this seemed ideal. Overall measures heart as accurately as any chest or other device. Occassional drop out when rate hitting higher beats but settles down again if wrist held stationary for a few secs. Comfortable enough to wear all the time but I use it just for workouts. Now getting to grips with the app to maximise other functions.
