Adidas Fit Smart grows up into a full-fledged fitness tracker

Adidas has announced a software update for its Fit Smart wearable, which transforms it into a fully-fledged fitness tracker.

Thanks to an update to the Train & Run app for iOS and Android, the device can now stretch beyond its real-time coaching and heart-rate monitoring smarts.

Now wearers will now be able to set daily and weekly targets for steps, distance and calories and keep track of them along the way, as they work towards goals.

Previously the device had captured all of this data, but users were unable to do an awful lot with it after their workout other than use it for reference.

Now they’ll be able to work towards targets, a la the rival Nike Fuelband, Jawbone and Fitbit trackers, as well as smartwatches like the Apple Watch that also use goal-oriented movement tracking.

The Fit Smart has been on sale for over a year, so we’re not sure why it’s taken Adidas this long to serve up such a rudimentary boost in functionality.

Anyhow, it’s here now and can be obtained simply by updating the companion mobile app.
