Exercise and lifestyle company Adidas recently launched their All Day fitness app for women. Gadgets and Wearables writes that this app offers meal plans, workouts customized for the user, sleep aids, and mindfulness regimen. This app also lets users in on fitness advice from experts, as well as curating personal music playlists for workouts. Unique in its mix of content within the app, All Day is available for users on both iOS and Android.

Women who run can now benefit from gadget-less cardio time with OMsignal's new smart sports bra. Sports Illustrated reports that the "OMbra" is outfitted with both heart and breathing sensors so that women don't have to be bogged down by extra technology.
