Make Any Shoe Smart with the MilestonePod

MANILA, Philippines—Milestone Sports Philippines officially launches the much awaited MilestonePod, an affordable waterproof foot pod with extensive battery life that improves your performance and keeps you running healthy.  In a day and age where one has to pay a premium to own a decent performance tracker, the MilestonePod is certainly a breath of fresh air.

Priced at only ₱1,695, the MilestonePod lets you know practically everything you want (and need) to know about your run.  It measures foot strike, rate of impact, ground contact, leg wing and stride length which transcends what most GPS watches can cover.  The MilestonePod is also as user-friendly as it is pocket-friendly.  Not only does it record more than 10 different metrics, but it simplifies and summarizes all the data for you as well.  Think of it as taking all the raw data recorded on standard running watches and being able to read it in the form of a children’s book.  Simple, straightforward and animated!

“These little bits of information are what will bring every runner’s game up a notch.  Given the many advancements in footwear, there’s still so much about ourselves that shoes alone cannot provide.” said Hitler Dulay of Milestone Sports Philippines at the Pod Powered event at Maximus Athlete’s Shop Café.  “Clipping the pod onto any shoe instantly awards the shoe with a brain of its own.” he added.

Going Beyond Pace

So how does the pod fare with the experts?  The MilestonePod is actually backed up by highly acclaimed athletes in different sports.  Coach and Triathlete Don Velasco, has included the pod with his many tools in his famous run lab—of which has produced many podium finishers in recent local races.  Milestone Sports Ultrarunner Rose Betonio is also an avid user of the pod.  She was amazed by the accuracy and quality of information the pod was able to give as she finished 2nd female overall at the Monster Ultra 200 in Singapore last May 01, 2017.

The MilestonePod is also amazingly well-matched with different platforms already being used by runners.  It’s compatible with select Polar, Suunto and Garmin units.  Furthermore, the pod is usable through popular and interactive running apps like Zwift and Strava.  Many upgrades like these are said to be on its way making things more exciting for the growing number of ‘Pod Heads’ around the world.

This little running buddy is a must-have in every runner’s arsenal.  It can guide a beginner to start running with proper form, or help a seasoned runner breakthrough from a plateau.  If you’re looking for a low-cost, informative and durable performance tracker, this pod is the perfect fit for you.  With the MilestonePod, less is definitely more.

Available at Maximus Athlete’s Shop Café, Flying Don V Coaching, Multisport Hub and SwimBikeRun.PH.
