The adidas MiCoach system first appeared on the old Samsung F110 mobile phone back in 2008, but soon after adidas ported the system over to the iPhone. It took a while, but the company finally launched an Android version at the start of May. MiCoach is special because not only does it allow you to track your training progress in sports like running, cycling, tennis and football using your phone’s GPS chip, but it also provides real-time voice coaching to guide you through different ‘zones’ in your workout.
The companion website includes a huge number of training plans that can be synced to your phone. Each one has been tuned for different sports to help you up your speed and endurance. There’s also a built-in music player so you can easily call up a playlist of songs or select individual tunes that you want to listen to without having to leave the app.
It’s taken a while to appear on Android, but it’s been worth the wait as MiCoach is probably the best training app available right now.
