Stryd is a wearable that snaps on to any shoe.
It measures your running power and sends that to your watch (Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Apple Watch) when you are running.
Do you want to run your next race faster?
Good. We can help.
Power is a direct measure of how much energy you use when you run.
We want to train your body to be able to access more power when you run.
If you can use more power when you run, you can run faster.
Stryd tells you a personalized power target for every run.
Each power target is designed to improve your endurance, strength, and speed in training.
Some runs are designed to improve your ability to run long.
Some runs are designed to improve your ability to run frequently.
Some runs are designed to improve your ability to run fast.
We identify your weak spot and instruct you to do specialized training to shore up that area.
If you followed a our training recommendations, you will consistently and predictably run faster.
What about race day?
We design a power target that pushes you to your limit on race day.
The power target will ensure that you evenly split your race so you have your best shot at hitting your personal record.
Overall, power is the best way to train and race because it trains you to your limit.
Pace is very important. It tells you how fast you are running.
We all want to run faster, so you must know your pace.
However, pace is not the best metric for training and racing.
To train and race effectively, you need more. It is not enough to just run fast.
You need to factor in hills, your fatigue, your speed, and your running form.
Power accounts for each of these factors so you train effectively when you:
- Have to run uphill/downhill
- Become fatigued late in a run
- Improve your running form and eficiency
What does this mean?
The answer is that you do need pace to train.
But pace offers a very one dimensional view into your run.
If you want a full view of your run, you need to measure your power.
GPS and heart rate technologies are good measurement tools, but they suffer from one fatal flaw.
GPS and heart rate are very good at telling you how your run went.
But they are not very good at telling you what you should do while you run.
Heart rate and GPS are not very responsive.
Heart rate lags.
GPS can be slow to respond too when you change pace or run up and down hill.
They are not effective at guiding your training in real time.
Stryd uses new motion sensing technology that transcends GPS and heart rate to give you instant access to information that you can you use when running uphill, downhills, and when fatigue starts to kick in.
This gives you access to real time information that your competition does not have.
You can make real time decisions during a training session or race to improve your training instantly.
It has been around a long time, but this is the first time you can access it.
Scientists have been using running power in the laboratory for years to great effect.
However, they never figured out how to take it outdoors where people really train.
Stryd is the first to create a device that is small enough that you can run with.
A small subset have been using run power for years.
Now, it is available to everyone at a price affordable to runners.
You should subscribe to our mailing list so we can tell you more.

If you are a runner who wants to significantly improve your race times, predictably get better every race, and break free from your standard training plan...
You honestly don’t need to read our “Olympic level” guide.
You need to memorize it.
This guide reveals a ridiculous powerful strategy that running that you will feel like you are running on air.
It will change the way you think about speed workouts.
It will change the way you think about long runs.
It will make you a far more skilled, time-abundant, and successful runner than the vast majority of your “competition” -- because you know the most important part of your training plan to focus on.
Stryd gives a far more accurate measurement of distance than any GPS watch. Its accurate enough that it really doesn't need any calibration, and unlike GPS, it should work in any situation. Not only is it providing accurate distance measurement, but it provides real-time pace, something that's impractical to achieve with any GPS device.
Stryd has turned my Apple Watch from an average running tool, to something very accurate and more impressive than my old Garmin watch. I am very impressed.
The most accurate foot-pod I have ever tested. A top-notch support team at the top.
I use Stryd and it has helped me improve my running efficiency over the past year. As I have grown stronger, my power utilization is more efficient on hills and endurance runs. I have also noticed fat adaptation is improving my HR. Love what Stryd has done so far to help me understand how I can improve.
I’m loving the Stryd. It’s starting to give me a completely different outlook on how I run. My runs are feeling easier but I’m running better times and I haven’t even started getting fully into it yet.
Power gives me actionable data that I can use to improve my running form and performance — without guesswork.
Bottom line, thank you for a great product and for helping me improve my training, even at age 43 when I'd expect to be slowing down, not speeding up.
Purchased this for my wife who coaches and runs a club. She loves it! Really good tool if you wish to move your running to another level. Gives the ability to analyze every performance aspect of your run or exercise and provides information as to where performance can be improved. Excellent customer service with really helpful and knowledgeable staff who are not just interested in selling a product but are genuinely interested in improving their products and assisting athletes to reach their goals. Highly recommended.
For stryd, every single forum I’ve researched. There was noway of accurately measure the running. People using Garmin’s who are visionally impaired aren’t accessible. The fact that Stryd gives you that option where you can record all the running metrics you possibly want and its all accessible is absolutely brilliant.
It worked flawlessly and gave me useful cues when I was going too fast, or too slow. I got a 45-second PR, which would have been more if I’d set my power target higher.
I thought you might like to know my race results for today's race (USA Triathlon North CentralRegional Championship - Hammond, Indiana). I was first in my division (65-69 Female) and did a 2018 PR for the run. The run continues to be my most difficult event and I'm so pleased to have run power to help me improve in that area.
Super thanks to Stryd! Sunday I focused on 30s avg. power during my Frankfurt Marathon. I used Stryd during all the trainings getting to a safe and relatively challenge power to keep. I rarely looked at GPS pace, but kept power constant. This drove me to achieve my personal best!
I was just reaching out to all the people and companies that were an integral part of my successful race season this far. I recently qualified for the Xterra World Off-Road Triathlon Championships largely in part to the revolutionary Running Power Meter.
I want to thank the Stryd team for helping me achieve some of my best triathlon run results in recent years this season (a PB in Olympic run, 3 HIM runs under 1hr 26 min, and an IM marathon of 3h 15 min (best I’ve run in 3 years!)
I won 1st overall at Nat Greene’s Revenge Duathlon this weekend! I averaged 261w across both runs and only dropped off a bit from the first to second run. My target was 266 so it was right on and helped pave me over some crazy hills on the second run!
Last saturday I raced Ironman 70.3 Hawaii and running with power allowed me to stay strong and I earned the spot to race at the Ironman 70.3 world championship this September in South Africa. I knew the course was slow due to a lot of grass running, uphills and downhills so running by pace would be super hard. I choose watts and I am glad I stuck to running at my tempo pace wich was between 240 and 260 watts my NP was 236 and I had one of the fastest split on my AG and I will for sure be using my stryd at the Ironman 70.3 world championship and at the ITU grandfinal in Australia and will share my race with you guys. Thank you.
I'm a big fan of the finer details that STRYD picks up for training purposes. I finally had the opportunity to utilize it as a pacing device for a marathon. By knowing what power I should target over the duration I was able to PR the Nashville Marathon this pastweekend in hot and humid conditions. Game changer for long course racing in my opinion.
I’m a big fan. I’ve trained for the London Marathon 2018 and the up and coming Berlin Marathon2018 using power only as a gauge. Never look at pace now when training, onlypower. Transformational! Terrific product.
I completed a 43km trail race yesterday, and it was the first time I have raced relying completely on Power. I made sure on all of the climbs that I did not let my wattage go above 300, and I finished in 3 hrs 32, which was 30 minutes quicker than I had anticipated. Also the last few races of this length that I had competed in I had gone out way too fast and ended up cramping, and had none of these problems yesterday. So as a coach and athlete, I can’t speak highly enough of the benefits of training and racing with Wattage.
The chart is simple.
Products in the top right offer the most precise pace and distance measurements.
As you can see, Stryd breaks the chart.
Its precision simply moves it a level above the other options.
It leads all other running technologies in running pace and distance accuracy.
How does Stryd do this?
Stryd's ground breaking motion capture technology measures the exact distance (down to the centimeter) of every stride you take.
GPS technologies have to guess at your pace using satellites thousands of miles away.
Stryd sits on your foot and measures your pace in real time!
The good news for watch owners?
Stryd integrates with the watches in the chart, as a foot pod.
This instantly level up any watch to an extremely accurate source of pace and distance.
Any watch can "jump" to the top of the accuracy chart just by connecting Stryd to it.
This all happens without any calibration.
No fooling around with test runs.
All you have to do is snap Stryd in and go and your watch instantly sits in the top tier.
This technique is very rare among runners, but you can start using it immediately for powerful results that nobody else can access.
I hope this text saves you some money.
A few folks have told me they saved $200+ USD by simply adding Stryd to their setup instead of buying a new watch.
If you unsatisfied with your current sports watch (Apple Watch included), you can easily upgrade it with Stryd.
