The Adidas miCoach Fitness Tracker Might Actually Talk You Into ShapeS

The Adidas miCoach system is supposed to guide you through workouts by providing audio feedback as it keeps track of your vital stats. To me, it seems a bit like a Nike+ with more options and an angry coach's shouting.

Like with the Nike+, there's a stride sensor to keep track of your running pace. Additionally, there's a heart rate monitor, and an "audio feedback" unit to aid in keeping track of your workouts. The system will run you between $70 and $140, compared to the $30 or so you'd shell out for a Nike+ kit. We'll compare the two soon, so we'll see whether the price difference is worth it and whether the audio coaching is annoying or useful. [Adidas via Uncrate]
