Adidas adds offline Spotify playback to Smart Run miCoach wearable

Smart Run miCoach

Adidas is working with Spotify to add the music streaming service with offline playback on its miCoach Smart Run accessory later in the year. Smart Run users will still need a valid Spotify subscription, but will ultimately get a better music experience that doesn’t require Internet connection while exercising.

The company’s wearable device runs Android, combining a smartwatch experience with a fitness accessory to enable users to track all the calories they burn throughout the day. Smart Run is connected to other devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, though the latter is required for syncing.

The Adidas miCoach program offers solid coaching experience, performance monitoring and more.
