2015 Runtastic launches Moment, an activity-tracking analog watch


Runtastic, the fitness app company that was recently acquired by Adidas, announced its second wearable fitness tracker, the Runtastic Moment. The Moment, which has both a watch and fitness tracking capabilities, is a follow-up to the Runtastic Orbit wearable launched last summer. The device looks very much like a normal watch. However it also tracks steps, distance, active minutes, calories burned, sleep cycles, and goals. It sends that data to the Runtastic Me app. Progress on some goals is also displayed directly on the analogue watch face, and a vibrating alarm can alert users when they’ve been inactive for too long. Like the Runtastic Orbit, the Runtastic Moment is waterproof up to 300 feet. It’s also powered by a standard replaceable watch battery, so it doesn’t require night time charging. Depending on the design and materials of the face and band, the device will range in price from $129.99 to $179.99.



2015 Adidas acquired Runtastic


Adidas has acquired fitness app maker Runtastic for $240 million. Runtastic developed more than 20 fitness, health and endurance and also plays in the hardware space with wearables and other fitness monitors. Runtastic’s apps have garnered more than 140 million downloads in total, with around 70 million registered users at the point of acquisition. Adidas CEO Herbert Hainer said the acquisition is about bagging 70 million customers to cross-sell its other fitness products. Adidas is merely the latest legacy sports brands to have its head turned by a digital fitness upstart. Other acquisitions in the space this year include fitness gear brand Under Armour bagging health and fitness trackers Endomondo and MyFitnessPal back in February; and in May the Weight Watchers slimming brand picking up fitness app, Hot5. Fleet-of-foot wearables maker Fitbit has also picked up a fitness app this year, bagging FitStar back in March.



2014 Runtastic launched Orbit, its own wearable gadget


The fitness-focused startup Runtastic, known for its run-tracking apps, is getting into wearables with Orbit, its first fitness tracker. The $119 Orbit is a tiny pod with a small screen and a silver button that slips either into a wristband or a belt clip. It tracks steps, distance, calories, active minutes, sleep and ambient lighting. What makes it remarkable isn't its features—step-tracking, in particular, is a commodity—but the thoughtfulness of its hardware and software design, particularly for people who work out a lot. The company is also launching a new iOS and Android app, Runtastic Me, a companion app for the Orbit that will serve as a hub for tracking all the fitness data collected by the tracker. The app also allows users to set fitness and sleep goals and track their progress over time.

I use this application every time i workout. Couldn't be much better than it is. I really like the way music is lowered for voice feedback and then automagically raises again.

Keeps stopping when I'm running and asking if I want to restart. Good looking application but screwed up the general feature-set. Doesn't work properly anymore. Keeps stopping my sessions in the middle of a run and asking if I want to restart. Good looking application but you've messed up the general feature-set.
