Fitness magnate Adidas has launched its new fitness wearable named Fit Smart and comes with a price tag of $199. This new fitness wearable syncs data with your mobile device in order to gather information from hardware for which a dedicated app miCoach is available in Google Play Store or the iOS App Store.
The Adidas Fit Smart doesn’t have an actual display instead hosts a series of LEDs that can notify users of their workout progress. It seems to be much similar to the Nike FuelBand. Features like vibration with multi-colored LEDs on the side are also provided and can change according to user’s intensity level.
The Adidas Fit Smart has a battery capacity of 200mAh which can last for nearly five days if the average workout time is considered to be one hour per day. The Fit Smart fitness band will be available from August 15 globally on the official Adidas website.
The Smart Watch market seems to get more dense and populous day by day as new companies are venturing and coming out with their own version of Smart Watches. The sports giant Nike has announced that it will come with its own version of Smart Watch in the first half of 2014, according to Taiwan’s supply chain.
According to sources, Nike is currently having trial production of their smart watch at the EMS firm Flextronics International. So this time we may see the Nike+SportWatch in addition to its FuelBand SE concept that currently exists. However, the FuelBand SE is paired up with iOS only. But looking at the popularity of Android based Smart Watches, it could be strongly predicted that Nike may launch their Smart Watch on the Android platform as well. Nike currently accounts for 30% of the global sportswear market. In order to meet expectations of such a huge customer base, it will launch its Smart Watch soon.
We have earlier seen the Adidas Smart Watch launched earlier in November. The watch was priced nearly at 400% and had variety of features catering to the fitness regime.
