Adidas has just launched its very own fitness wearable known as the Fit Smart for $199. This wearable, much like Fitbit and plenty of other fitness wearables, syncs with your mobile device to store gathered data from the hardware. Users will have to sync data using the dedicated miCoach apps available in the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store.
The Fit Smart doesn’t have an actual display like most wearables, but relies on a series of LEDs which can notify users of their workout progress. It’s pretty much a competitor to the Nike FuelBand, so most of the features are bound to be identical. It also has features such as vibration accompanied by multi colored LEDs on the side which change according to the user’s intensity level.
The Fit Smart has a 200 mAh battery inside which will reportedly last five days with an estimated work out time of one hour per day. The wearable will be available for purchase through Best Buy in late August and will be available globally through the official Adidas website starting August 15.
While it’s a very neat looking wearable, we’re not sure the $200 price tag is justified considering the availability of other competitive offerings.
