I really love the concept of the device, it has given me the opportunity not only to track everything I do on the field but improve over time and I appreciate it

better than expected
Ive only had this a little while but so far I have been very impressed. I took it for its first trip on a treadmill to follow the calibration guide then went for a proper run on the treadmill to see how accurate it was. It measured my run exaftly how the treadmill said changing from 9km/h to 15km/h and the distance was spot on as well 5km. Th second run was on the road. I took it for a quick 2.4km using a gps app on my phone. When I compared the result they were again exactly the same. I dont know how it was so good when others have said they had troubles. Now to try some proper training with it see how it goes.

Awesome help for training
This product from Adidas should be recommended for all athletes and trainers. It's lightweight, helps train for that big game day or any other kind of activity. Share with your friends, play the game, and have a good time with the Adidas miCoach Speed_Cell.

Brilliant idea - good first design
This chip is a brilliant idea. I wore it using the clip playing football and tennis and it did not fall off. The sync also worked and it is really good to have a post-analysis related and specific to the sport being played (tennis, running, football, etc...). The programs available are also really good.
I hope there will be future development of this chip. There is no doubt adidas competitors will jump the train and propose alternatives soon. I think the two future enhancements missing are:
- being able to save the raw data as ASCII (text) for our own analysis (excel, office calc)
- make the chip smaller so it is therefore stronger and we can place it at many different location attaching it with a velcro
- make it usable for skiing/skating for example
adidas also need to look at mass production, manufacturing cost reductions on the production line, etc... to make the chip at around £30 ($30) and look for volumes (with the same quality) and not sparse usage for the elite because the competition will do.

It does its job for sure, the MiCoach system gives you so much. Not only does the Speed Cell track everything you do, the website gives you workouts to help you get stronger, faster, and more. Great product, Adidas is out doing any other soccer company.

The adidas micoach chip is a great way to track your game performance and to see how well you do in games. The first time I used the micoach chip I was amazed at the stats it recorded for me in my match that Iplayed in. I never knew how fast I could run before until the micoach chip told me how fast I ran and I also never knew how much distance I could cover on the pitch until the micoach chip told me exactly how much distance I covered which also showed my intensity levels, so I now know how hard I can work to progress to the standard that I want to play at.
I fully recommend anyone looking to track and analyse their performances, to invest in buying the Adidas micoach chip.

Great Gadget, once you get it to work
This is a great gadget that can (sort of accurately) track your speed, distance, etc., but it takes a lot of patience to set it up:
1) The battery in the unit is ALWAYS on standby, and turns on when it detects movement. This means that if you need it shipped to the West Coast (they come from NC), you better have an extra battery ready.
2) The first time you try to CONNECT with the USB transmitter, there is NO WAY to see what the problem is if it doesn't (in my case an empty battery#. The helpdesk will have you delete and re-install MiCoach, delete drivers for the CONNECT USB and re-install those etc. #did this all at least 5 times), and then they'll send you a new battery...

Highly recommended! Worth the money, also fun to post up your stats on Facebook. Will even set up workout schedules for you as well.
