At its annual I/O conference yesterday, Google unveiled the Google Fit health tracking platform that allows devs to build apps that can fetch data from a slew of wearable devices. While no devices were mentioned at the event, a series of leaks today suggest that Adidas is getting set to launch a smartband that runs on the platform.
Dubbed miCoach Fit Smart, Adidas' smartband looks like an improved version of the miCoach Smart Run with an LED dot display. While there is no mention of the actual hardware used in the device, the FCC leak mentions that the device connects using Bluetooth 4.0 LE, while the images indicate that it could feature a heart rate sensor positioned at the back.
Adidas was named as one of the partners at the Google Fit announcement, so it is plausible that the miCoach Fit Smart is the first wearable from the sports brand that runs on the platform.
What do you think of the smartband? Do you normally use fitness trackers to track your health?
