Shame it wasn’t introduced in January, but if your fitness resolution is still going strong later this month, you might want a Samsung miCoach phone to monitor your progress.
A collaboration with Adidas, it’s described as ‘the first true sports music mobile’, featuring a stride sensor, heart rate monitor and a 2-inch LCD screen showing information on speed/calories burnt. There’s also training tips and time updates, including an option to get messages from a personal coach (which seems to involve such obvious statements as ‘speed up’ or ’15 minutes left’).
Add to that a music option that plays music to fit with your movement, rugged keys, 2MP camera, 1GB memory, USB/Bluetooth options and colour choices of Dark Gray, Tech Silver, Pink Red, Cool Gray, Sapphire Blue, Misty Blue and Sweet Pink. No news on a price as yet – but as it’s launching soon, might be worth checking with your phone seller of choice.
