Peg’s Posts: Foot podology


010-11092-00_LR_100 How it works: It’s a little bit of magic (ANT+ wireless technology) and a lot of high-tech wizardry. I’ve seen the charts and heard a high-level explanation direct from the developers and I’m not fit to even recap it beyond this: the foot pod is 98 percent accurate out of the box for most users. And its accuracy comes from the fact that it’s tracking the entire movement of your foot stride — not just forward motion.

Where it goes: This tiny tool can snap onto your shoelaces or fits in the sole of certain running shoes. Make sure the arrow on the foot pod bracket points outward, to your toes. This is to ensure the best accuracy. When I ran the Rock’n’Roll Arizona half back in January, I did a little on-the-spot tech support in the porta-jill line. I noticed a woman had her foot pod positioned the opposite way, so we got her pod pointed in the right direction and she was grateful for the tip.

To learn more about the foot pod, watch this video showing how it works with the FR60. And stay tuned for a more in-depth rundown in an upcoming fit tech blog post.
