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.
Tip! Keep in mind that the MilestonePod metrics are tied to each another. When you are working on improving one, you shouldn’t forget about the others. For example, pace is a product of cadence and stride length. Rate of impact can be affected by stride length, pace, and cadence.

Note: Walking sessions will not include rate of impact, foot strike or leg swing.
