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.

One word of advice: calibrate! The absolute best way to calibrate is to run a known distance (like a standard 400 meter track at a high school). GPS is ok too but it doesn't track well at times. Take a look at one of your past runs and you'll see some deviation in your run plot.
Here's how I got a good calibration factor:
1. I set my calibration to 800 meters (twice around track)
2. After my calibration, I re-set my GPS watch and did 3 more calibration runs (800 meters each)
3. I took mental note of each calibration factor, added them together and divided by 4.
4. I entered my "average" into my calibration setting and I'm all set!
I am pleased with the Garmin Foot Pod and I recommend it for the Garmin Vivoactive watch.
Pairing it to the 220 was straight forward. I clipped it onto my shoe, walked a bit to wake it up, went into the settings menu on the watch and told it to search, which only took a few seconds.
I like the fact that it will produce a clean cadence graph regardless of my hand movement. Garmin Connect will also calculate an average stride length based on cadence and pace.
The 220 will normally use the cadence from the foot pod and the pace from GPS. If you turn GPS off (treadmill) or lose the signal then it will attempt to calculate your pace based on your cadence and historical stride length. There is a manual calibration setting in the watch but the auto-calibrated setting seems to work fine for me.
