Milestone Pod Review/Giveaway

Milestone Pod on my Saucony A6

If you’ve got a better memory than I, you might recall my talking about the Milestone Pod last year. It’s a cool little device (all of 12 ounces) developed by a local runner and his partners that attaches to your running shoe laces. And the list of all that it can do is pretty amazing.

When I last wrote about the Milestone Pod, the developers were getting funding together and putting the final touches on the product. Today, the pod is not only available, but outfitted with all kinds of new features. I’ve been able to try it out myself and even this admittedly low-tech runner finds it pretty cool. Those of you who love number crunching when it comes to running will be all over it.

What the pod allows you to do:

  • View detailed run data like distance, pace, and cadence
  • Effortlessly track the ever-changing miles on your shoes
  • View daily, weekly, and monthly mileage
  • Tag your to-go runs to compare your time/pace
  • Carry always-on digital health tag in case of an emergency situation

The pod also has a mobile app so that you can quickly and easily check in on your stats as soon as you finish up a run. A dashboard pops up and displays your pace, distance, cadence and can be used to compare one run to the next. Since you know I’m interested in cadence, you know this is a feature that appeals to me. It’s also a pretty hearty device and will make it safely through rain or muddy, wet trails, as the case just may be around here! The battery lasts for ages and you can get up to 20 hours worth of data onto your phone before you even have to think about uploading to your computer.

Sound like something you’d like to try? The Milestone guys gave me two to give away to readers. Enter below through next Friday, May 2. Good luck!

  3. Sounds cool! I love that it also has emergency info. Right now I use my Garmin and, obviously you have to connect it to your computer to get data. I would love to have an app for that :-)

  4. I have four Milestone Pods (one for each shoe in my rotation) so I don’t necessarily need another. The one thing to remind people is to make sure the Pod works with their phone.

  6. I’m terrible about tracking the mileage on my shoes, other than a general idea of when I got a particular shoe. This would be so helpful!

  10. Pretty cool device – I especially like the cadence tracking since I’ve been trying to pay more attention to that.

  11. Sounds pretty great! The cadence tracking is really unique, and beneficial. I’m also brutal at mileage with my shoes!

  12. This is such an ingenious idea! I need one of these because I’m constantly switching out shoes for runs and forgetting how much I’ve run on them.

  13. I’ve always wanted to try one- In fact my knee hurts this morning and I think it’s because I have too many miles on my shoes! Fingers crossed!

  14. I am so not a techy when it comes to fitness but this does sound cool.

  15. This sounds very cool. I think I like that you wear it on your shoe so that you can’t look at the display all the time. I love that it can track the mileage on your shoes (though I do this anyway in my running log).. I love techy stuff :-)

  16. Love this! Like you, I’m a pretty ‘naked’ runner and don’t have a lot of fancy gear. But I love the safety ID feature and it would be great to track miles on my kicks!

  19. I like that it has health information on it. That’s something that a lot of the other similar products don’t have and sound be incredibly useful in case of emergencies.
