Make any shoes smart with the MilestonePod, your portable run lab. Pair with the MilestonePod App to uncover unique run/walk data and insights. Because HOW you run matters! For no extra effort, you will get cadence, stride length, ground contact, foot strike, rate of impact, leg swing and total shoe mileage. In addition, the Pod tracks basic performance measures like pace, distance, steps and calories - all in a fun and easy-to-use interface. Learn about your form and gait to improve performance, stay healthy and find the right shoe. Just clip the MilestonePod onto your shoe and go. There are no buttons, no charging and no need for a GPS signal. It works the same indoor or out. It's always on, already ready to collect your data. After you run, sync the Pod to your MilestonePod App in seconds. Do you use a GPS watch or app? No problem! Now you can get unique foot-based metrics too. The MilestonePod remains attached to your shoe for the life of your shoes, then can be reset and transferred to a new pair. If you still have the MilestonePod V2, don’t worry it still works, but with the New MilestonePod and the latest MilestonePod App you get: a new clip-on Pod that is easier to mount (no more unlacing!), longer battery life, waterproofing, improved accuracy, even faster sync time, the option to download data to Excel (V2 or New MilestonePod). The FREE MilestonePod App requires an iOS mobile device with iOS 7 or newer, or Android based mobile device running Android 4.3 or newer, and Bluetooth 4.0.

- Cost (half of my Garmin foot-pod, which cannot record runs)
- The graphs are really cool
- Running tips via email are another nice touch
-- CONS --
- Data is inaccurate even after months of calibrating each and every run with known good value--GPS watch, Garmin pod, manually verifying distances via online maps (google, mapmyrun...etc)
- The app is klunky. Trying to view maps
- Can't sync the pod while it's recording (my garmin pod syncs via ANT+ so I can see my cadence on my watch as I'm running)
- No way to start/pause/stop...it just records whenever it feels like it and stops randomly.
I saw the $25 pod and was really excited about the potential. I initially bought the Milestone Pod with two intentions:
1) Gain insight into my foot strike and running form (instead of recording video of me running on a treadmill frequently).
2) A more natural way to record runs (supplement my Garmin watch, hr monitor and foot-pod -- for non-workouts where I don't need HR and other data)
Honestly, I was impressed for the first few weeks. The pod was coming up short on all my runs but once I corrected the distance the pace would be within a few seconds to what my Garmin would have recorded (generally slightly slower because it would record me walking the first 30 seconds or so from my house to the sidewalk).
However, it's now been 3 months (55runs!) of patiently correcting the distance of the Milestone Pod after every run and the data is only getting worse. I replaced the battery and the distance is even farther off lately...to the point where even calibrating distance isn't getting it back to accurate values
Today was the final straw for me. I did 0.6 miles in 7:40, stretched, then did a 4.5 mile run in 38:05. What did the Milestone Pod record? 16 minutes of running, for a total of 1.5 miles!? There's no reasonable explanation why it would end up with 1.5 miles (my 4.5 mile run was 2.25 out and back and I turned around at 19:43 so it's not like it even cut that run in half)!.
I'm sorry Milestone...but I your product is absolute garbage. I could possibly accept having to calibrate every run since the pod is cheaper than others--though it ends up being far more expensive after you take into consideration that looking up runs online takes time at 20 hours a year calibrating (5 minutes per run, 4-5 runs a week)--but even after calibration, some of the runs don't even provide accurate data.

The Zwift bit works great with my iPad, really easy to connect. All it needs to transmit is running speed via Bluetooth.
What surprised me is the additional metrics.
I have run outdoors a few times and when synced to my iPhone post run it gives me Foot Strike details, Cadence, Ground Contact Time, Rate of Impact, Stride Length and Leg Swing along with tips on what is deemed good for these metrics. It combines these to give you a 'Runficiency' (Trademarked) plus bunch of graphs. This is about performance improvements and injury prevention.
It also connects to my Garmin Running Watch (Fenix 5) whilst running although I have yet to investigate what it is transmitting.
For less than £35, it's an incredible piece of technology.
App is slightly buggy but I'm sure they will fix this.
Instructions on how to connect to Zwift are in short supply. After I contacted the support team I was given instructions on how to connect but these worked ...yep..5 times. I try to recreate those magic steps every time I train but end up losing the majority of the short period I have of an evening for training. On two of the occasions I have managed to connect to Zwift I found half way through the sessions that the device had disconnected and the session was recording me at a steady pace of 7.5 kmph which it continued to perform even when I stopped running.
If that wasn't bad enough I tried to use the device for running on a few occasions. During those times I can never get back the device refused to stay connected to my S8 Galaxy or S6 Galaxy.....and yes I followed the correct guidelines!! When it did connect it lost the connection every few sessions.
In summary, life is too short to use this foot pod. It is not market ready. Nice try though. 1 star
For the gym I use with the Runsocial app, which makes treadmill runs a lot more interesting, would be good if Runsocial app also incorporated all of the good data like cadence etc. from the pod, but that's not Milestones fault.
For outdoor runs I now get loads of data on running form like cadence, stride length and ground contact time. Currently I'm focusing on my cadence which is too slow. It's a shame that currently there is no app that can show this data on my Apple Watch so I could make some corrections in run and have to wait for the download at the end. Apps like MapMyRun work with the pod well, but it's not shown on their watch app. I believe Milestone are working on their own iOS and Watch App and this could really get the most out of the hardware.
Overall is a relatively cheap and I believe fairly accurate way to improve running form, track shoe distance etc. and I'd recommend.
The app (iOS) collects the data at the end of the run, works out when was I was walking to the start and then when I started actually running, then distance, cadence, ground contact, foot strike, back lift, etc are reported and it gives feedback on how to improve them. Any data junkie will be right at home. You can also choose to upload the run to Strava, if you like, but this dose't have GPS so there won't be a 'trail' map.
I dropped one star because, Milestone are gently leading you to buy one pod of each pair of shoes, you register the pod as being fitted to a make/model of shoe, so swapping to another pair of kicks feels like cheating somehow? Perfectly possible though it is.
Needs a bit of an improvement to its accuracy and it’s spot on. I calibrated it several times at several speeds.
