This tiny foot pod is small enough to attach to your shoelaces or fit in the mid-sole pocket of compatible shoes. It's always ready to use, and 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. Additionally, this sensor measures running cadence to help you optimize your training.

Top customer reviews
Some running shoes have special pockets built in for housing the tiny pod; however, it also comes with a click-on accessory that allows it to be attached to the shoe's laces. It synchronizes easily to each of the GPS watches that my husband uses (although he tends to favor his Garmin 210).
I can't speak to its capabilities with other GPS watches or treadmill connections; but with my husband's Garmin 210, there is not real-time cadence information offered as a display on the watch. His only benefit is when he returns from a run and downloads the data to his laptop.
I'd guess that the pod is useful for people who have a GPS watch, and who run unknown distances. It would probably also work for people who run all their miles at the exact same pace. For me, a $10 pedometer is more useful. It could also be useful if you run on different treadmills all the time that are calibrated differently, and you want a consistent (though probably not accurate) way of measuring distance and cadence.
On the plus side, it seems to be a pretty secure design, and I move it from shoe to shoe very regularly without incident.
One thing to note. If you are using your watch indoors it may lose track of what time it is and log your workout on a different day than the current day. To get around this take the watch outside and let it catch sattelites before you turn the gps off to use indoors. Then either leave the watch on till you synch or make sure that you link to sattelites again before you synch with garmin connect. I use a Garmin 310XT. I think this is an issue with some garmin watches not the footpod
