A pulse-taking sportswatch that's also a Bluetooth music player sounds like a plan, so we put the plan into action...

Lacking stamina

Adidas MiCoach Smart Run

Adidas MiCoach Smart Run

As a training partner, it’s spectacularly comprehensive – it’ll even serve up helpful videos of exercises in the gym. Adidas’ MiCoach app is great, but it’s the only software the Smart Run talks to. Shame it doesn’t link to MyFitnessPal and other heaA pulth trackers, too. The beltless heart-rate monitoring is great, too, but all this comes at a cost. For starters, it’s bulky – definitely too big to wear all the time. Battery life also takes a hit: all too often we’d get ready for a run only to find it’d died. Even in non-GPS mode it won’t last a full day. What’s more, we had to stand around in the cold while it took a leisurely 90 seconds to pick up GPS, compared to a speedy sub-15 seconds by the TomTom and Garmin. More training needed, Adidas.

As smart as they come, but not quite fit enough to keep up
