Rated 5 out of 5 by pheed No more chest straps..yay
Build quality of unit is top notch, just make sure to wipe the HeartRate sensor area (or the whole underneath of watch) with a damp cloth so the residual salts from body is removed from watch surface...do this after every run. This should minimize chances of rust that i have heard few folks complain about. Apart from that unit performs fine, you get access to MIXRADIO, GPS lock is quick. Internal memory is wee bit limited compared to my 16GB MotoActv , in run telemetry updates are synced whilst online - via Wifi and the miCoach website is very nicely laid out, allowing for progress/history etc... overall am very happy with purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by outlaw75 No Watch mode / Battery so so
Watch looks great! Cool design and look.
I am a tall guy and could use one or two more holes on wrist band... I am on the last hole and its tight, but I guess better for the heart rate.
Have not been on a run yet, this is the longest winter ever! But got GPS working on a few walks.
#1 problem is I wanted this to be a daily use watch. NO always on watch face (old nike +) have to hit the button every time I want to see the time.
#2 Battery life is short... even with no watch mode and only looking at the time with the button I don't think it will make a week. Much less if I use GSP.
I love all the function , but it still needs the basic function of a watch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dom78 Not a serious contender for a GPS/running watch
This was bought as a present to replace my Garmin and although it has some great features it fails to live up to expectations. The two main aspects critical for a training watch, battery life and GPS, are inadequate.
I've had the watch for 8 months or so and believed that the poor ability to fix on to GPS was due to living in the countryside. Since moving to London the issue is worse and has taken 5-10 mins to get a fix. In addition after a 2hr run the watch is down to only 30% power left, even after not having music, and stopping all the other features.
Very disappointed and frustrated with the watch. It really has no use as a credible running watch for runners.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RunnerinOz Not happy Jan!
Well at $500 you would expect something pretty top notch. I have had mine for about 3 months now. Issues:
1. Very very poor battery life compared to my old Garmin or Nokia Lumia 1020.
2. Very very poor GPS lock compared to my old Garmin or Nokia Lumia 1020.
3. Very very poor GPS tracking (some of the routes it tracked on my circuit!) compared to my Nokia Lumia 1020 using Micoach or Runtastic.
This is all hardware related.
Some good attributes:
2. Bluetooth connectivity etc
These are software related and not particularly special to Smart Run.
Mine will not turn on now (and yes it has been charged up).
I would wait until the technology improved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Micoach-1time-user Micoach SMART RUN Watch
I have purchased Micoach SMART RUN Watch lated DEC '14. I believe I have received someone's return as it have someone's login information in and music uploaded, however, it seemed new with original packaging and all. After using it for less then a month, I can't say I am impressed, the biggest flaw was battery life. Watch required to be plugged in very often, more often then I'd expect.
I also found it somewhat difficult to go easy to the heart rate menu and to navigate around to get to different setting on the watch.
I am not sure if I would recommend. I've had higher expectation of this product.
I did like the design and how they felt on my wrist while wearing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sydeowt Works great, but band too small.
I have used this watch for about 3 months. Most of the features work great, and the productivity during the runs has improved quite a bit, which was why I waited a while to purchase. The downside: because I'm a bigger guy (6'4" / 240lbs), the "one size fits all watch strap" is way too small for me. I have it on the absolute largest setting, and couldn't wear the watch for more than 20 minutes without it creating issues with the skin on my wrist and circulation in my hand. Over time, I've had to put the watch down because I can't wear it at all without getting a reaction pretty quickly. I'd love to see some fix to extend the circumference of the existing strap so I can wear this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Minibar Besides the horrible connectivity
I have had my smart run for a little over a year now. I figured when I paid $400 dollars I would get top of the line! Like many have said, but I stuck with this watch. I have an I.T. background so I know new tech. would come with some problems. It's been a year now plenty of time to fix things! I'm not impressed still! I'm even thinking of buying a smart watch. Come on adidas fix the GPS, Bluetooth, and touch screen issues. One more thing get some new watch faces! Or you can send me the software to design some new ones then I'll upload them. Or at least make the watch face design software for sell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ictdave Nowhere near as bad as some reviews would suggest
I have had the watch for just over a week and love it. I have had other famous name (for sports) watches before and this is better. The good - seamless automatic uploading to Strava and MicCoach so no messing around at all, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth easy to set up, controls simple and intuitive, screen is clear, information accurate, integration of heart monitoring (I don't like the chest bands), coaching, music uploading and configurability. The bad - battery life, but with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a clear colour screen that's the price you have to pay until the next round of tech innovation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JCRows Some good but not working anymore
Fits well for me
Data is great
Only one charger & no chance to buy another one
GPS takes too long to fix. My partner has a garmin & when we run together my gps takes between 2-5 minutes to fix while hers is instantaneous.
Battery life initially was very poor, but did improve
Bought the watch in December 2013 to run and train for the NY Marathon on 2 November 2014. In late October 2014 the watch stopped working, perhaps the battery was done. I ended up using my partner's garmin for the marathon
The back of my watch is similarly corroded as others who have already posted photos
The watch is currently dead, & by the time I got back from NY, the one year warranty had expired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bohdiman Great watch for running with
I wanted to find something that would allow me to cut the cord from my iPod Shuffle when running and refuse to carry my phone in my pocket or strapped to my arm. This Adidas watch fits the bill perfectly.
I pair it with a set of BT earbuds and I have no cords, nothing in my pockets and get music streamed perfectly, saved workouts that include HR, pace, cadence, etc. via the internal GPS and the ability to sync with my online account via WiFi. The mio HR sensor works incredibly well and the watch only needs to be snug, not tight on your wrist.
The software could use some updating to improve the user experience but it's not terrible after getting used to the quirks.
Easily the best GPS watch available
