The Adidas MiCoach Smart Run, a fitness tracker with an assortment of sensors for your workout as well as space to store music, may be getting a new feature to keep you pumped for your run.

Adidas and streaming music service Spotify recently teamed to create music playlists and suggested running routes that match the distance and intensity of your run. Now, it looks like the companies are taking their "boost your run" collaboration a step further.

Spotify's offline playback will be coming to the Adidas MiCoach Smart Run around Christmas 2014, reported Engadget on Friday citing conversations with an Adidas representatives. The feature will be available to Spotify subscribers, said Endgadget, and could add extra functionality the device's owners might be seeking.

CNET has contacted Adidas for comment on the report. We will update this story when we have more information.

While the market for wearable fitness trackers is becoming increasingly crowded, at least one of company is getting out of the hardware game. Sportswear company Nike confirmed last week that it is halting development of its FuelBand tracker to shift its focus to software development.
