FCC, retailer listings suggest imminent launch of new Adidas fitness tracker

Adidas is close to launching another fitness tracker, according to a variety of sources. Trademarks, FCC filings, and listings with retailer Keller Sports for the miCoach Fit Smart appears to show Adidas combining its existing miCoach Smart Run smartwatch with similar functionality to competitor Nike's FuelBand SE device, with the device also appearing to provide heart rate monitoring as well.

Engadget reports the Fit Smart uses an LED dot display instead of the LCD color screen used on the Smart Run, seemingly doubling the resolution of the FuelBand SE. On the back of the main section is a sensor with green lighting, most likely to monitor the heart rate, with the FCC filing advising it will connect with a smartphone over Bluetooth 4.0 LE. Given the name, the device is likely to provide data to Google Fit, the recently-announced fitness platform that seeks to collect health-related information about a user in one place, as well as Adidas' existing miCoach fitness cloud service.



It is unclear when Adidas will ship the miCoach Fit Smart, but considering there is a now-pulled retail listing, it can't be that far away.
