Easy to swap to different pairs of shoes.

This is a useful metric to track while training because the faster your cadence, the more efficient your running is.

When I could not get the pod to work I contacted the Timex customer service department.

This unit is identical to the one sold by Garmin so purchase whichever is cheaper. If your Forerunner, Timex Run Trainer, or MotoACTV GPS watch supports an ant+ foot pod, either "brand" foot pod will work.

There's not too much to say about these things...they're solidly built, relatively inexpensive, and they work. Depending on your watch they'll provide you with your foot cadence while running, allow you to turn off your GPS and run indoors on a treadmill, and provide you a backup should you lose GPS signal whilst running outdoors. You need to check the latest info on your watch about how it will work with a footpod as firmware updates to GPS watches dictate features.

Foot cadence is (basically) the number of times per minute your foot strikes the ground. This is a useful metric to track while training because the faster your cadence, the more efficient your running is. Most folks in training mode will attempt to keep their cadence at 90-95. It's not the most important metric while training, but it's very useful if you're serious about improving.

None of the Garmin GPS Forerunner line (or the Timex Run Trainer) currently supports indoor training (e.g. on a treadmill)--unless you use this device. Once paired with an ant+ foot pod, however, the GPS can be turned off and the watch will calculate mileage based on the accelerometer in the foot pod. Your watch will have a pre-determined "guestimate" on your stride and then calculate distance based on that, but it is HIGHLY recommended to calibrate your watch and foot pod by running a known distance (such as on a track). Again, this is very easy, and once you've done it your foot pod will be VERY accurate when running on a treadmill.

Paired with my Ironman Timex GPS HRM and works great. I manually calibrated it to my walking gate but that was very easy.

Revised Review 01/13/2014: After doing a 1/2 Marathon and Marathon I have discovered that if you have -BOTH- the foot pod and the GPS activated the foot pod will override the GPS. As a result, unless your foot pod is calibrated correctly it will calculate distance, time, pace incorrectly. Timex customer service recommends using the foot pod only indoors or when the GPS cannot connect due to poor weather conditions and calibrating the foot pod correctly regardless of conditions.

While Timex was quick to answer this question, this information is not clearly noted in any of their documentation for the foot pod or watch.

My watch is an Ironman GPS Global Training. I could not find anything on the Amazon or the Timex websites stating that the watch was not compatible with the pod before I purchased it. When I could not get the pod to work I contacted the Timex customer service department. It took several days for a response but they eventually told me that the pod was not compatible with the watch.

I purchased this product to go along with my Outsider Interavtive Software which simulates running outside while running on a treadmill. Had no issues.

Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Battery life is about two years. Clips on easily. Symc'd without issue. Easy to swap to different pairs of shoes.
