Samsung, Adidas miCoach

Samsung and Adidas are teaming up to compete with Apple and Nike's Nike+iPod program, and have today introduced the miCoach workout tracking system. The miCoach system combines the miCoach phone with a heartrate monitor and stride sensor to provide accurate feedback about workout activities. Pricing was not announced, but the miCoach system will be available in Europe mid-March.

The miCoach advises the user of various milestones, such as a certain period elapsing, or encouraging the user to speed their progress to achieve a desired level.

"miCoach is the most advanced interactive training system in the marketplace, blending sophisticated mobile technology with the most advanced in sport innovation and training," said Eric Liedtke, Vice President of Adidas Brand Marketing. "The uniqueness of miCoach is that it collects and analyzes personal data and then customizes training plans based on your fitness level and specific goals, while giving you real-time feedback during your workout via the miCoach phone."

The phone itself is available without the monitor or stride sensor, featuring a 1GB memory capacity, and a built-in 2-megapixel camera on the back of the slider portion. It is available in seven colors: Dark Gray, Tech Silver, Pink Red, Cool Gray, Sapphire Blue, Misty Blue, and Sweet Pink.
