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 wrist-worn device and this foot pod. Also provides distance and cadence data when used with the FR70 series.
The foot pod isn’t needed with some of Garmin’s newer watches like the Forerunner 620 and 920xt, which can track cadence without the foot pod. But it’s useful for less expensive watches that don’t have that capability.
Small enough to attach to your shoelaces or fit in the mid-sole pocket of compatible shoes, the 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 advanced MEMS inertial-sensor technology to analyze your movements and is responsive to stride-length changes to achieve 98 percent accuracy for speed and distance.
