The Adidas miCoach app will be available on Android in late April, Adidas announced at Mobile World Congress on Monday.
The miCoach app turns an Android-based smartphone into a personal coach, according to Adidas. Its features include pace-triggered voice coaching, personalized and sports-specific training plans, workout calendar, and workout feedback.
The personalized sports-specific training plans allow users to adopt their training plans according to the sport they practice, including football players that want to be faster and stronger. It also allows for different running plans, depending on whether the user wants to lose weight or train for a marathon. The pace triggered voice coaching will tell users how fast to run to reach their goals and how much further they have to go during a session.
The company didn't detail which version of Android will be compatible with the miCoach application. In August, the application was launched for the iPhone and BlackBerry, and has, so far, racked up about one million downloads, Adidas said.
