Product Description

Product Description

Monitor your distance and cadence when indoors, such as on a treadmill or a track at the gym, or when out of GPS range with your Garmin wrist-worn device and this foot pod. This shoe-mounted accessory provides speed, distance and cadence data when used with a compatible Garmin sports watch. Speed and distance information is calculated in the Garmin foot pod and transferred to your Garmin Forerunner or other compatible Garmin sports watch. The information from the foot pod will be automatically displayed and stored.

Small enough to attach to your shoelaces or fit in the mid-sole pocket of compatible shoes, the Garmin foot pod is always ready to use. A small, replaceable watch battery powers the foot pod for a year of training.

Unlike simple pedometers, this foot pod uses MEMS inertial-sensor technology to analyse your movements and is responsive to stride-length changes to achieve 98 percent accuracy for speed and distance.

The Garmin foot pod is compatible with a number of Garmin products including Fenix, Fenix 2, Forerunner 210, Forerunner 220, Forerunner 305, Forerunner 310XT, Forerunner 405, Forerunner 405CX, Forerunner 410, Forerunner 610, Forerunner 620, Forerunner 910XT, FR60, FR70, Tactix, D2, Garmin Fit and ANT+ Adapter for iPhone.

Manufacturer's Description

Garmin is pleased to announce the new Forerunner Foot Pod. Have you always wanted to use your Forerunner to calculate speed and distance when training indoors? Well now you can! This shoe-mounted accessory will provide pace and distance to the Forerunner when GPS reception is unavailable. Speed and distance information is calculated in the Foot Pod and transferred to the Forerunner. The information from the Foot Pod will be automatically displayed and stored.

Does exactly what it says on the tin and paired up within a minute with my Garmin Forerunner 405CX. My running is heavily motivated by gadgets and if you run on a treadmill as well as running outside then you will need this little device if, like me, you want to record all your runs. For ease of use and working well I would give 5 stars but it is a tad expensive for what it is (I previously ran with a Nike+) so it loses a star due to cost.

I use the Garmin foot pod with my Garmin Forerunner 410, it provided valuable addition data such as my running cadence (the number of steps per minute) and provides distance and speed information when there is no GPS signal available, namely when in the gym or on a treadmill. It works reliably and appears to be really surprisingly accurate. It also synchronises with the Forerunner 410 reliably and in seconds.

The foot pod is small, in fact the same size as a Nike Plus device and will fit in a Nike plus holder in your training shoe. It comes mounted on a quick release harness that fastens to the running shoe by the laces. This seems secure enough although I confess I use a Velcro Shoe Pouch when outside, the quick release harness hasn't yet earned my trust.

So why only three stars? Well, when describing the cost of the Garmin foot pod I toyed with the words `amazing' and `eye-watering' but these didn't really cut it and I was finally forced to resort to `astonishing'. The Nike+ Sport Kit retails for around £20 and is essentially the same technology and that would seem to be a reasonable price for this unit, even £30 may be reasonable. You would need to be really serious about running to invest in this foot pod at this price.

So to sum up, technically the foot pod is excellent, reliable and accurate, commercially - what were they thinking? At £40 I'd award it four stars; at £30 I'd give it five stars.

If you have a Garmin watch, run, and use the Garmin Connect site to track your workouts once they're uploaded then this device is most definitely worthwhile, especially if you like your stats and analysing your runs.

I have the Forerunner 310XT already coupled with a heart rate monitor. Using the Footpod gives me additional information on cadence (strides per minute) and average stride length. Using these figures can help with developing your running style, although you need to do some research and understand what they mean for you as well as choose the school of thought on their interpretation that's right for you. I love stats and I am working on improving my running style so I'm finding these stats are rather useful.

The device is small enough to sit nicely on your shoe with the clip sitting beneath one set of crossover laces and the device clipping easily over the top. I've worn it out on a number of runs now and I've had no problem with it flying off, it's also been through a few puddles and some torrential rain and I've had no problem with it failing on me.

One thing I've found is that the 310XT will use the Footpod instead of a GPS signal. This is handy on runs when you do lose the GPS, although I find that rarely happens, but at the start of a run you need to ensure you have a good GPS signal and lock before starting, otherwise your Garmin Connect map can look a little off target to begin with.

This has revolutionised my treadmill workouts.

I always felt that I was running faster than the treadmill showed and this has proved it. It also gives me a way to get data from these workouts which I can analyse like outdoor workouts. Synching it to my forerunner 310XT was a wee bit complicated but nothing especially taxing, though I did need to find a video on how to do it on Youtube. So maybe the instructions could be improved if nothing else. Added to that it's accurate, clips on easily and reliably to my shoes. Is it a little bit expensive? Possibly, but a gadget is only worth what you're willing to pay for it, and I stumped up the cash and don't regret the purchase. Too early to tell how long lasting it is however. A nice gadget for a moderately keen runner and upwards.

This was the SDM4 model which supports the cadence feature and precisely what I was after in terms of add-ons for my 310xt setup. I wanted it so I can record all my indoor treadmill sessions as well as force my cadence up.

Pros:
Can clip to laces or squeeze in arch area of shoe
Tiny (about size of 10p but slightly thicker)
99% accurate speed once calibrated against GPS (so can use on treadmill)

Cons:
So small and light if you havent connected it to your shoes correctly then
Might not be overly waterproof (used wetsuit latex glue to seal battery cap better)
Expensive-probably OK at £40 but £70 is way overpriced. I paid a lot less as it was a clearance item so very happy
Clip very small compared with polar footpod so wouldnt notice if it fell off when running-just put it inside shoe instead.

Despite the drawbacks, if you see it for under £40 I would recommend it if your a data freak like me!

I bought this in addition to my Garmin Forerunner 410 GPS Sportswatch. The price may put a lot of people off buying this product but it really is a fantastic piece of kit. It fits perfectly in to my Nike + running shoes and connects instantly with my Sportswatch with out any problems. I train regularly and the information from my Footpod combined with the data from my Forerunner really does keep you motivated. The Footpod does require calibration but this is incredibly simple. You have several options for doing this, either walk or run around the inside lane of an 800m track... this may not be an option for some people. The second option is to just walk or run until the Sportswatch tells you to stop. Both are really accurate and simple to do. The main feature from the Footpod is the run cadence when you are outside and have a GPS signal. On days when you really don't want to hit the road and the treadmill seems like a better option the Footpod will track all of your data as you won't have the GPS signal needed to calculate distance, brilliant for keeping track of those indoor miles. This is a great addition to the Garmin Forerunner watches and fully recommended for anyone who is serious about running or just getting in to it.
