    Running coach wearable

    How did you come up with the idea for this product?

    The core mission of Lumo Bodytech is to help unlock the human potential and empower our users to lead healthier, more active lifestyles through the integration of technology. All three of Lumo Bodytech’s co-founders are avid runners who have experienced injury themselves from poor running form and increased their performance by improving their running form. Lumo Run was the natural next step for our company.

    What makes your product special?

    The Lumo Run takes the power of a running lab and the personal touch of a coach and combines the two in an easy to use wearable device. Proper running form helps people run more efficiently and effectively. The Lumo Run sits on the small of the back where it can accurately measure traditional metrics, like cadence, as well as metrics related to the pelvis, including drop and rotation, which are key for reducing the risk of injury and increasing performance.

    What has been the best part of your startup experience?

    Helping people move better. Getting personal stories from people about how they are achieving their goals using Lumo products.

    1. treadmill "course" :(
    2. You can see how the graph drops because of the wrong distance and pace logged by a treadmill run :(
    3. Other metrics seem relatively unaffected by treadmill
    4. Exercise recommendations and "tips" videos
    5. New run goal based on metrics from past runs

    As a running gadget enthusiast, I had to find out what Lumo was all about so I ordered one. When you open the box, you'll encounter the Lumo, a slip-on type clip, and a USB cord. You are instructed to charge the device, install an app on your phone and create an account. The instruction leaflet tells you to clip the Lumo to your pants/shorts waistband on the back, whereabouts your spine is, then open the app on your phone, and go for a run at least 10minutes long.

    After each run, the Lumo will introduce what it thinks you should work on next: cadence, bounce, breaking, drop or rotation. Cadence is how often your feet touch the ground, bounce is a measure of how much up and down motion is happening during your run, breaking is deceleration that happens while your feet is touching the ground, drop and rotation are measures of hip movement.

    From time to time (which can be adjusted to be every half, 1 or 2 miles or 1, 2, 3 or 5 minutes) Lumo will give you feedback. If you are meeting the goal for the metric in this run, you hear a chime. If you are not, a sad trumpet ("womp-womp") type of sound. Sometimes, it will also give you some advice, some of which I found useful ("remember to run like you are running through puddles trying to not make a splash") and others not so much ("remember to run like a horse"). What? What if I do not know how a horse runs? To be fair, the app has "tips" videos demonstrating these things. Based on how you are doing, the app will suggest some exercises (both pre-run and post-run) that might help you.

    While Lumo works well outdoors, Lumo has limitations on a treadmill. It will log a ridiculous pace and distance and, to my knowledge, there is no way to correct them. The Lumo team should seriously consider allowing users to edit indoor runs to manually input the distance, time and speed as to not completely mess up the trends graphs. The other metrics seem to be more or less unaffected.

    Minor issues I've encountered while running with Lumo:
    If you run with a hydration belt, it can push the clip out of your shorts.
    If you run with a hydration pack, it can hit over the Lumo and skew your data.
    There is no run/walk interval mode or option that I could find, so if you walk your running cadence and braking will be skewed.
    Lumo is small, black, and attached to a black clip - very easy to misplace.

    Overall, so far I like the Lumo. However, I hope the Lumo team can do some fine tuning with the software to make it better for indoor use as well.
