Rated 5 out of 5 by nokiaTrainer Works perfect with miCoach for Windows Phone 8 on my Lumia 620
I bought this monitor for the usage on my Nokia Lumia 620 in the hope of having Bluetooth Smart support. Last week I saw the miCoach app launched as the first one enabling Bluetooth Smart. Awesome training esp. also indoors with heart-rate tracking and coaching!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sinetrogue almost perfect
This heart rate monitor is great! It's extremely accurate and works very well with the miCoach app. The textile strap is comfortable and easy to adjust, put on, and remove.
Also, as a woman, it's not noticeable at all when I wear it under my shirt.
I have had some connectivity issues when my phone is in my backpack. The app kept saying "Bluetooth found. Bluetooth lost. Bluetooth found. Bluetooth lost..." nonstop without a break. But when I looked at the results afterwards, it appeared uninterrupted.
Don't forget to take it off after you're done working out. Otherwise the dried sweat makes your skin bond to the connective part of the strap and it hurts to take it off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vintouch Good Product, App campatibility can be better
The product is good, but it doesn't pair with S-Health app on my samsung Galaxy S4. I was looking for pairing it with S-Health as it gives an option to track calories burnt and calories consumed.
This device pairs only with micoach app. But this app doesn't have an option of tracking calories consumed... so its difficult to keep-up with my wait-loss goals !!! Now I have to use SHealth and MiCoach. Using two apps (instead of one) would drain the battery of any phone :(
Below adds would be better
Should pair with SHealth app or
an option to track calories consumed in micoach app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eduardosimoes Great purchase!
This is my first heart rate monitor and works perfectly with my android.
The big range of training plans for different sports helps you doing it right wether you are an experienced athlete or not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tntrailrunner Horrible! Unusable! Want a refund!
The GPS function on my phone works fine when working out and using micoach until I try to use the heart rate monitor and it loses its signal constantly unless I run with the arm pouch or iPhone in my hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kentrik RESEARCH CAREFULLY
As far as I know, this works great. I can't tell, though, as it does not work for Android yet. Once Google finally updates the Bluetooth stack with 4.0 (BTLE), hopefully Adidas will update the micoach app to work with the sensor. In the meantime, it does not work with Android, it does not work with the iPod Touch 4G. It will only work with the newest iPhones and the iPod Touch 5G.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KSchirm13 Best Coaching Device On Market
I have been comparing my wife's micoach and its capabilities with my unfortunate purchase of a similar product from an industry big player. micoach is a much much better product, which will truly makes you a better athlete where it is just a slogan of the other company. The micoach web site is almost perfectly designed, with fantastic preset periodized training programs that are dialed into specific intensity zones. If you want to alter the workout calendar, it is very simple to do with a click and drag to pull a workout from one day and move it to another day. It is also easy to alter preset workouts plans to integrate more cross training if you like, which is what I did with my wife's plan. I started with a level 6 10K plan, and reduced the running days to increase the strength training days. Speaking of weight training days, the animated demo of how to perform specific movements is excellent and is something the NO ONE ELSE has. This is hands down the best on the market. I can't wait to get mi own. Next up, if Adidas could design a program for cyclists with BlueTooth interface with a PowerTap, I will have died and gone to heaven!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mithralender Excellent Product
It's great to be freed from the Connect, now that BLTE is available. The only downside is that the HRM strap continues to have some minor issues. I actually was forced to upgrade from my old equipment b/c the strap died after ~ 2 years of routine use. The new strap does not always register correct HR, unless it has electrode gel applied at the beginning of the workout. Otherwise, I am very happy with the product and it's interface with the mobile app.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SPML Not so good
Had to return mine as it was defective. When it works it's great and does as expected, but unfortunately the transmitter kept popping out of the strap at the slightest movement, so it was pretty much useless. Never had this problem with other heart rate monitors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Allaire Good for a old guy.
My wife purchased this for me 6 months ago to help while we try to "get fit" I'm a 56yr old 6'4" fella whom is moderatly active but never successful in maintaining a workout routine. I've never been a runner, so I used this device to monitor my hart rate when walking each day. It helped me set a pace and understand what was necessary to get my hart rate into the zones I wanted to achive. Within two weeks of using this I was walking 5 miles at a brisk pace and maintaing a 140+ HR. Now 6 months later I'm jogging 5k every day and getting my HR up to 150 by the end of the run. I've lost 30lbs and hope for more.
For me this devices helped me set my pace via hart rate, not speed, as a always slow runner I had always been discuraged by my lack of speed, now I pay little attention to my speed and concentrate on my hart rate and running the 5k every day.
I use it with a Samsung Note 3, had some connectivity problems with the hart rate sensor for a while. At first it was not a problem. Then after a few weeks it would take forever...5-8 min for MiCoach to find the Hart rate sensor, even after wetting it, shaving my chest, new batteries, got to the point where I stopped using it. Then after about 2 months of not using it I put a new battery in and tried it again. It's been working flawlessly since. I've had updateds on my phone and apps so maybe that was what sorted it out. I'm a happy camper now.
