While you are running or walking, internal sensors and an accelerometer capture 200 measures per second across three axes (up, down and across to put it very simply). The Pod aggregates and stores those measures every minute. When you sync the Pod to your MilestonePod App, our custom algorithms crunch these measures with your height, weight and shoe type. Finally, your gait and performance metrics are output in a usable (and fun!) format to your MilestonePod App.
Note: Walking sessions will not include rate of impact, foot strike or leg swing.
Read below to see how we calculate each metric.
