Improve running performance with this fitness tracker for your shoe
Wearable fitness trackers and their companion apps have revolutionized the way we exercise, making data about working out easy to access and analyze.
Your Fitbit is great for general information like distance traveled and calories burned, but dedicated athletes need more specifics. The MilestonePod was specifically designed for runners to track their stride—a data point that’s essential to improving performance but that a traditional fitness tracker can’t really measure.
The MilestonePod clips to your running shoes and tracks cadence, stride length, ground contact, foot strike, rate of impact, leg swing, and total shoe mileage in addition to the more traditional wearable metrics like pace, steps, and calories burned. It connects to an app on your phone via Bluetooth and doesn’t require charging. It doesn’t have GPS, though, so if you want to map your run you’ll need a separate app for that. (We recommend Map My Run.)
You can pick up a MilestonePod on Amazon now for $29.95. That’s half the price of the least expensive Fitbit wristband.
