November 2013 Archives
The adidas mi-Coach SMARTRUN was announced on October 16. The mi-coach platform had been introduced several years ago and was seen as a very technical and competent way of providing training information during workouts for runners, soccer players among others. The biggest deficit with the adidas mi-Coach was the number of moving parts.
The adidas mi-Coach SMART Run has everything boxed in your smart watch: GPS, pulse, mp3 player, and linked to the adidas mi-Coach training website, and you are off!
The product was sold at the adidas booth at the 2013 ING New York City Marathon and is available on the adidas site, where it began being sold on November 1. Watch for a roll out at Run Specialty over the next month.
RunBlogRun caught up with adidas Innovation's Paul Gaudio, and he filled us in the evolution of the adidas mi-Coach SMART RUN.
