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.

INSOLE WITH BRAINS
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.

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.

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.
