If you’re a runner, this might be one of the smartest fitness watches to date. Adidas revolutionizes the running watch with the miCoach Smart Run.

For the first time, runners of all abilities will be able to track their runs using GPS mapping, monitor their heart rate off their wrist, listen to their favorite music and get real-time coaching in a single, simple, color touch screen running watch.

Unlike most other smartwatches, it’s a standalone device and doesn’t require a constant smartphone connection to be useful.

“By combining the latest innovations, such as the Mio Wrist Based Continuous Heart Rate Technology, design and ease of use navigation, we consciously broke the template that defines other running watches,” said Simon Drabble, director of miCoach at adidas.

This definitely looks like being one of the most advanced wearable fitness trackers, but after the smartwatch craze over the past few years, we’d expect to see many more devices like this within the next year. You can read more on the miCoach Smart Run here.
