When Adidas launched the miCoach Smart Run, it set a benchmark for smartwatches. Here was a watch that offered almost every feature a runner would want, and still managed to look fashionable. By the virtue of their later launches, several smart watches have now outstripped the miCoach Smart Run but the device still remains one of the best running watches.

Look Good, Run Hard
First, let’s talk about how it looks. The miCoach Smart Run’s 1.45-inch TFT LCD display looks amazing. You will be finding reasons to use the beautiful screen. It packs a GPS, a strapless heart rate monitor, Bluetooth 4.0, WLAN, and 4 GB of memory space that you can use to store music to listen through a wireless headset while running. In addition to the usual GPS-HRM measurements, the watch gives you access to cardio training coaching plans designed by leading fitness professionals. You can’t just take it out of the box, strap it on your wrist and get running. You will first have to make a miCoach account and activate the product through it. The watch syncs your performance data with your miCoach account, and installs performance updates automatically. It is very easy to send your data from here to a number of fitness apps.
