Adidas miCoach Fit Smart vs Nike+ SportWatch GPS:
What's the difference?

When details of the Adidas miCoach Fit Smart first leaked, it was thought to be a rival to nike free run 2's FuelBand SE. However, that has turned out not to be the case.

Adidas has now officially announced the device - which will be available in the UK and US from mid-August - and it is more a tool for those who take their fitness and sports training seriously.

Therefore, it is more like Nike Roshe Run's other device in the Nike+ range, the SportWatch GPS. And while that specific fitness tracking wristband is around three years old now, it is still being sold and supported by Adidas' big sports brand rival so it's worth checking out some of the key features and specifications to see which would better suit your needs.

Heart rate monitoring

One of the big features of the Adidas miCoach Fit Smart is that it contains an optical heart rate sensor on the underneath of the band's face that can measure your heart rate as you train. The nike free 5.0 v4 + SportWatch GPS doesn't.

Instead, it relies on the addition of a Polar WearLink+ Transmitter to send heart rate information to the device and that adds cost (an extra £50, roughly) and needs to be strapped elsewhere.


Both devices have a number of key statistics that are available to you at the touch of a button or two and will be used to form more visual graphs on their respective smartphone nike free run dame apps.

The Fit Smart is able to tell you calories burned, pace, distance covered and stride rate. The SportWatch is similar, with pace, calories, distance, lap marking and a timer on board. It's much of a muchness in fact.

GPS and other sensors

As nike free 3.0's SportWatch is made in collaboration with TomTom it naturally focuses around GPS features. It keeps track of a user's location in GPS codes, so you can see exactly where you have been and how long it took to get you around the circuit.

The Fit Smart doesn't have that option, with no GPS on board, but it does have an nike free 3.0 v5
