Garmin Running Dynamics Pod Sensor
Computes and Transmits Meaningful Data: Experience the power of precise running dynamics with the Running Dynamics Pod. This compact and lightweight device calculates and sends six essential running metrics to your compatible device¹. Gain valuable insights into your running form and performance with ease.
Long Battery Life and Automatic Operation: With a replaceable battery that lasts up to one year (based on one hour of daily use), the Running Dynamics Pod ensures uninterrupted tracking of your running dynamics. Its smart design automatically turns the device on and off, saving battery life and providing convenience for your training sessions.
Tiny Size, Big Impact: Weighing in at less than 0.5 ounces, the Running Dynamics Pod is incredibly lightweight and discreet. Its compact size ensures that you'll forget it's even there, allowing you to focus solely on your run without any distractions.
Seamless Connectivity and Data Syncing: Compatible devices connect² effortlessly with the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, enabling automatic syncing of your data. Analyze your running metrics, track your progress, and connect with a community of fellow runners. Share your achievements, challenge yourself, and stay motivated to reach new heights.
Train Hard, Run Free: Experience the freedom of running without the need for a heart rate monitor chest strap. The Running Dynamics Pod easily clips onto your waistband, providing you with the essential running dynamics needed to surpass your previous records. Simply pair it with your compatible smartwatch¹, clip it to the back and center of your waistband, and embark on your run.
Review Your Form and Enhance Performance: Take your running to the next level by reviewing and analyzing crucial running metrics. Measure your cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation, and vertical ratio. These biomechanical measurements offer deep insights into your running form, helping you identify areas for improvement and perform at your best on race day.
How It Works: Equipped with an accelerometer, the Running Dynamics Pod captures torso movement to calculate the six running metrics accurately. Gain a comprehensive understanding of your running performance:
- Cadence: Measure the number of steps per minute, displaying the total steps (right and left combined).
- Ground Contact Time Balance: Assess the left/right balance of your ground contact time while running. It is represented as a percentage, accompanied by an arrow indicating the imbalance.
- Stride Length: Track the length of your stride from one footfall to the next, measured in meters.
- Vertical Oscillation: Evaluate the bounce in your running motion by measuring the vertical motion of your torso, displayed in centimeters per step.
- Vertical Ratio: Determine the ratio of vertical oscillation to stride length, expressed as a percentage. A lower number generally indicates better running form.
- Ground Contact Time: Measure the amount of time spent on the ground during each step while running, recorded in milliseconds.
Enhance your running performance, understand your biomechanics, and unlock your true potential with the Running Dynamics Pod. Revolutionize your training and achieve new milestones with every stride.
