Congrats to adidas on winning an award for mi-coach. I have tried the product, like it, and find the heart rate training making huge sense. The real time training, the website, all are quite intuitive. That one can use mi coach on other shoe brands is fascinating as well.
adidas mi-coach, is the real thing. It is a worthy competitor to the Nikerunning.com program, which has been in existence for three years. I think the more competitive runner will appreciate the unique approach to heart training that adidas mi coach employs, although we have been told of a Nike heart monitor product (but have not tested that as of yet).
The challenge for adidas is, okay, you have a strong product, how do you get the consumers to use it?
