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.
