SMARTER SOCKS

Runner's World (UK) - - Tech Special -

Sen­so­ria Sock 2.0

Sen­so­ria’s first pres­sure­sens­ing sock had an an­kle cuff that trans­mit­ted land­ing zone and cadence to a smart­phone app. The 2.0 has a thin­ner sock and postage-stamp-sized chip that reads data from tex­tile sen­sors on the sock.

$199 (£155), sen­so­ri­afit­ness.com

INSOLE WITH BRAINS

Arion

The Arion uses eight sen­sors to mon­i­tor foot strike, im­pact forces and other met­rics, but it’s built into a re­mov­able insole that can be used in your shoe of choice. The data is re­layed to your smart­phone via a small foot­pod.

From £75. To pre-or­der, visit getar­ion.com

SHOE COACH

Al­tra Torin IQ

With sen­sors in the top of its mid­sole, the Torin IQ keeps tabs on your form. The sen­sors mea­sure your land­ing zone and im­pact rate, plus met­rics such as cadence. A com­pan­ion ifit app gives on-the-run coach­ing cues.

$220, al­trarun­ning.com (Cur­rently avail­able only in the US)

READI­NESS IN­DI­CA­TOR

Un­der Ar­mour Speed­form Gem­ini 3

The Gem­ini tracks cadence, dis­tance and pace, and in­cludes a ‘jump test’. Pair the shoe with your phone and launch the Map­myrun app for a 20-sec­ond as­sess­ment to see if you’re ready for an in­ter­val work­out.
