Adidas and Polar introduce the completely integrated training system

Adidas and Polar introduce the completely integrated training system
Polar Electro and Adidas have formed a partnership that will introduce the world’s first completely integrated training system. Called “Project Fusion”, it seamlessly integrates Polar heart rate and speed and distance monitoring equipment into adidas apparel and footwear.

Included in the project are the Adidas adiStar Fusion range of apparel (t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, bras, women’s tops), the Adidas adiStar Fusion shoe, Polar’s s3 Stride Sensor, The Polar WearLink transmitter, and The Polar RS800 Running Computer.

Special fibers bonded onto Adidas tops, work in conjunction with Polar’s Wear Link technology to eliminate the need for a separate chest strap to monitor heart rate. Users just snap the tiny Polar WearLink connector onto the front of the shirt and go. The data is sent to the Polar RS 800 wrist-mounted running computer, which easily displays and records all information in real time. Simply put, your shirt talks to your running computer.

The adiStar Fusion shoe has a strategically placed cavity in the midsole which can house the very light Polar s3 Stride Sensor, making it easier to use, more comfortable and more consistently accurate than top-of-shoe systems.

Information like speed and distance, chronograph functions, along with heart rate, are also shown on the RS800 in real time. And when the workout is over, all data can be downloaded onto a computer so workouts can be easily managed and analyzed.

Purchasing the entire system, including the Polar RS 800, Polar s3 Stride Sensor, adiStar Fusion top and adiStar Fusion shoe will cost about 640 Euros/680 US Dollars. The products are available as separate pieces as well, and available in spring of 2006.
