Does it matter which running power meter you use?

This tiny pod will...
Painlessly push
your running capabilities to new heights —
with a daily power plan for every
training run, time trial, easy day, and race.

Power plans will work for every run in every possible running condition.

Power-based running accounts for your speed, slope, run form, fatigue, and wind, to deliver perfect, precise, and painless pacing

Power reflects your intensity and effort by quantifying speed, form, elevation change and wind resistance as a single number in real-time.

It’s simple. Run by a power number that reflects your intended intensity. As elevation and pace change, power keeps your effort even.

Because power is real-time you don’t have to wait for your heart rate to know you’re going too hard.

By running at a targeted power number, you give yourself the best chance at building fitness in training and turning that into excellent performances on race day.

What is running power?

Power is the most useful real time intensity metric for runners to guide training and racing efforts.

Running power accounts for speed, slope, run form, fatigue, and wind, to deliver perfect, precise, and painless pacing.

Power is a superior method of pacing compared to using speed or heart rate as power comprehensively considers the effort you are outputting in almost any running conditions, is consistent on a day-to-day basis, and is responsive to real time changes in effort

The power concept has been proven in cycling over the last 20+ years already as power is the go-to metric for amateur and professional cyclists. Power is now available to runners.
