What It Tracks

The Running Dynamics Pod has an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement to calculate these six running metrics:

  • Cadence: The number of steps per minute. It displays the total steps (right and left combined).
  • Ground Contact Time Balance: Displays the left/right balance of your ground contact time while running. It shows a percentage, e.g., 53.2 with an arrow pointing left or right.
  • Stride Length: The length of your stride from 1 footfall to the next. It is measured in meters.
  • Vertical Oscillation: Your bounce while running. It displays the vertical motion of your torso, measured in centimeters for each step.
  • Vertical Ratio: The ratio of vertical oscillation to stride length. It shows a percentage. A lower number typically indicates better running form.
  • Ground Contact Time: The amount of time in each step that you spend on the ground while running. It is measured in milliseconds.
