Developing The Future Of Fitness

In conjunction with the challenge, adidas opens up its' sensors to android developers, offering them the opportunity to create new apps using data captured by its' miCoach SPEED_CELL or X_CELL during a workout. Following the three month challenge, the winning apps, selected by app experts at Google, will be awarded various prizes and featured in the Google Play app store.
Commenting on the initiative, Stacey Burr, VP/GM for adidas Digital Sports said: "adidas is committed to using its in-depth understanding of elite athletes and sport to drive innovation that enables consumers to unleash their best. That is exactly what this challenge is about. We're giving people who have the potential and skills to turn the huge volume of data and insight adidas micoach has into an application that will benefit a huge amount of people. It simply blends the best of technology, innovation and fitness."
