Rated 2 out of 5 by MandaSoS4me What happens if you don't have a Smart phone etc!
When I purchased this for my Father no one at shop told me that my elderly Father had to have every gadget under the sun to be able to sing watch to enable to use the thing. He only has a pretty modern PC and that's it!
Come on Adidas where does it say on your marketing ( on the box) ghat you MUST have other expensive technology to get this watch past the Bluetooth symbol on the watch face. Very very cruel indeed as my elder father who's just got motivated to get some walking in to get fit due to a health scare has only had the pleasure of charging the gimmick up! Great disappointment and the shop selling it didn't have a clue either. Adidas you have scored $300 of my money so now I face in spending an additional $1100 on the latest smart phone! Good grief! Remember there are a wide ranged of customers out there and not all are into all sorts of gizmos that eventually we will need to push a shopping trolley around while out tunning or walking just so gadgets can communicate with each other! Not impressed with the non exhistant words on box that this product won't work if you don't already have an iPhone , iPad, smartphone ect etc etc etc. very disgruntled daughter indeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WJackson Great to have it on Windows Phone
I was always keen on the Fit Smart and it has now become compatible with Windows Phone. I received my Fit Smart a couple of days ago and have used it twice now for a run and for a gym session along with wearing it as a standby watch. First of all, the fit is really nice, i went with the black colour which i do notice shows up dust but that's not important.
The battery life is as good as they say with a half charge lasting four days with two hours of training.
I've only used the training in 'Free' mode and it's been great to see my heart rate in the gym. Previously i've used the micoach app on my phone along with the HR strap around my chest. Wearing just the watch is a lot easier. During the run it was great to see my distance and it vibrated each 1km to give me a split update which was very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Webby43 Fantastic purchase
The Adidas MI Coach watch is a great tool for any athlete, physical education teacher or anyone wanting to get fit. Reasonably priced but if you want quality you need to pay for it.
Highly recommend it to anyone thinking about a new sports watch investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tahoenorman Love the Simplicity
I love this product. I had the "Zone" when it came out and loved the simplicity of that for training and now they have came out with a better version that easily syncs to my iphone to download all my stats for review later. The changing colors relative to your HR zones is great, as well as the overall ease of use and simplicity. I even got one for my wife and she is so not tech savy at all, and she also likes how simple and easy it is. That says a lot..... If there was one critic is that the large band is really large and I should have got the small as there is no medium I believe. Other than that love the product. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoccerS&C Simple and Effective
I have been using the FIT Smart for several weeks now and it has exceeded my expectations. After playing with the watch for about 15 minutes I was able to get a good handle on the interface, which is very simple. It has three buttons, a multi-purpose "select/home" button and two scrolling buttons.
What I really like about the watch is that it doesn't have excess features that you won't want to use. It has several useful modes (assessment, free workout, planned workout) and that's it. Simple.
Syncing with your MiCoach app is done via bluetooth.
The watch actually looks pretty good too. I have a black watch and wear it most places. The watch is almost entirely covered in rubber and is easy to keep clean.
From the coach perspective, I have used these watches with my athletes to prescribe them workouts during their off days or when rehabbing injuries. You have to create a MiCoach profile for them, but after you do that, it is easy to have them do the assessment workout and then assign them conditioning based on their HR zones.
Just an FYI it seems to work better to run the assessment test outside as opposed to on a treadmill. Regardless, you may want to run the assessment several times before using the HR zones. This will allow you to get the most out of the test.

I bought the fit smart because I wanted a wrist heart rate monitor at a reasonable price. I don't need GPS etc because I already have that on my phone. This watch does exactly what I need it to do, monitor my heart rate (accurately) and tell me when I am in/out of zone by buzzing but not too often to become annoying. So far battery life seems good and it is easy to charge. The wrist strap is very comfortable but I'm not sure how durable it is going to be. The small is a good fit and I do have small wrists definitely buy large if you are male.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Soccer82 Great New Product! Use it to track all sorts of activities.
The miCoach FIT SMART was right on with my current needs. I love that when going out for a run it was simple to see exactly where I was and that I was hitting my potential. It was great to get a coached workout that I could sync very simply to the miCoach train & run app following. I did use it to simply track my data during a recreational soccer game which also proved to be very helpful. I got great stats afterwards to help me understand the effort I actually put in and I could compare game to game. This is great for me as I get back into game shape. All in all the features were very simple, the setup was easy, and the band itself was very comfortable both while playing and just going for a run, which made me even more excited to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magz001 Awesome new toy!
I am a recreational jogger and the miCoach FIT SMART training watch for my needs perfectly. While I was on the run the watch displayed my heart rate, distance travelled, total time, and was even able to notify me of my 1km split times. I have used a different heart rate monitor in the past to track my training, but it only gave me a partial view of the run and I had to use a separate app to monitor my distance, splits, and to track my progress in my training regimen. When I got home the watch paired seamlessly to the miCoach app clearly showing me all the data collected by the FIT SMART. I was not only able to see the raw data, but the app charted out my pace, stride rate, and heart rate vs. time so I could easily see where improvements could be made. It even was able to extrapolate and find predicted my 5k, 10k, half, and full marathon times. Just makes me look forward to running!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bama1896 Taking it back
Have tried for 3 hours and three different devices and can't get it to sync with any. iPad, Samsung smart phone, and a blackberry. MiCoach app gets bad reviews but I can't rate it because of the inability of the device to communicate via bluetooth.
