The Garmin Running Dynamics Pod makes it easier than ever to track running metrics. The tiny pod weighs just 0.5 ounces and simply attaches to any waistband to transmit 6 running dynamics metrics to a Garmin watch or other Garmin device. The no-fuss design automatically senses motion, so your running metrics are always tracked.

Garmin Running Dynamics Pod measures 6 running metrics:

  • Ground contact time: Time in each step spent on ground measured in milliseconds.
  • Contact time balance: Displays left/right balance, displayed as a percentage with arrow.
  • Cadence: Total number of steps per minute.
  • Stride length: Length of stride from one footfall to next, measured in meters.
  • Vertical oscillation: Vertical motion of torso during stride, displayed in centimeters.
  • Vertical ratio: Ratio of vertical oscillation per stride, lower percentage is better form.

running replacement for chest strap

Used to replace a chest strap for summers hot humid weather on runs, it works great. Paired easy to a Garmin 735xt.

I like the feature showing ground contact time for each foot, & the other run features on Garmin.

Still use a chest strap for rides.

Battery needs replacing a lot

It does what it should...I have great stats now.

The battery needed replacement after 2 weeks/4 uses. The new one hasn't lasted too much more than that.

You can't fix running inefficiencies, if you don't know what they are.

Using this pod has shown me that I use my balance is off and that I favor my left leg, I am now working at using both legs the same. I have also found out just how much I bounce. You can do two things after reviewing your own data, do nothing or fix it. After 3 weeks of using the pod I have become much smoother, I don't notice some of the aches I had before. I would recommend this product if you want to become a more efficient smoother runner.

Device works fine but Garmin's app for comparing run dynamics to previous runs is not

Insight into your running dynamics is valuable data to aid with improving form and performance. This device works well with regard to how you performed on a given run (cadence, stride length, leftright balance, vertical oscillation). My disappointment is with Garmin's app. There is no way to compare data from previous runs to demonstrate change or improvements. Again, the device does it's job but I hope Garmin's improves their app.

works well if you dont carry anything

I have used this a number of times and found that it is not as accurate as the chest strap dynamic system. This requires you to wear it on the back middle of your shorts. If you have any shorts that have a pockets in the back the sensor accuracy is thrown off when you carry gels or a phoneipod. The weight of the item in your pocket makes the Garmin Pod bounce more than if there is nothing in the pocket. It also cant be worn if you are using a hydration belt because it would be under the belt. It did work well at the track because I didn't have anything in my pockets. I owned the chest strap version and found the information very helpful.
