Adidas miCoach fitness app coming to Android

Android gets a marquee fitness app.

There's a couple of things the Android Market is short of in order to get on a level playing field with Apple's App Store, one of which is the lack of a decent fitness app. Well that's about to change with the launch of the excellent Adidas miCoach app coming this Spring.

A massive hit on the iPhone and BlackBerry, earning a five star review on T3's App Chart, the miCoach app prescribes specific training programmes for six different sports, with audible coaching offering a pep talking during your run.

The app is centred around the GPS-based pace zones, which encourage you to pick up your speed or relax depending on the coloured zone you're running in. All of your run data is then stored and instantly backed up online where you can analyse graphs and compare your performances over time. Naturally, you can also share your results with the online community.

You can go online and download a programme completely tailored to your needs or you can free run and the app will still record your time, pace, distance and calories burned.

The free coaching device also allows you to listen to music stored on your Android phone during your workout and you'll also get notifications from your work-out calendar when it's time to head out for a jog.

The Adidas miCoach app for Android was announced today at MWC in Barcelona and the only disappointment is that we'll have to wait until late April to download it from the Android Market.
