ASICS has partnered with SONY on their Smart B-Trainer headset! You can either use your existing MY ASICS training plan or create a new plan right inside the B-Trainer for Running app! The Smart B-Trainer brings many new features to the MY ASICS training experience such as voice guidance, the ability to play music at a tempo that matches the target pace of your run, and many more sensors to get feedback on your run performance. The device also has built-in GPS, so you can leave your phone at home and only take the Smart B-Trainer for a run. The Smart B-Trainer was first released in Japan in March 2015 and has continued to launch in markets around the world throughout 2015.
**Please Note** MY ASICS for Sony B-Trainer is being discontinued on Mar 31, 2017.
How to Pair With My Asics:
You are able to sync your activities with the Sony Smart B-Trainer sports device. However, you will also need to install the Smart B-Trainer app on your phone so that the two can sync up together. We recommend that you install this additional app before running with your Smart B-Trainer. You can download this by clicking below:
