Adidas to bring exercise app to Android

Allows users to personalize training plans

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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
