    Analyze your running performance like never before with the Garmin Running Dynamics Pod. The pod easily clips onto your waistband to measure the running dynamics you need to beat yesterday. It gives you the option to run without a heart rate monitor chest strap and still monitor important running metrics like cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation, and vertical ratio. These biomechanical measurements can help you understand your running form so you can perform better on race day.

    How It Works

    • Computes and sends 6 running dynamics metrics to your compatible device.
    • Replaceable battery lasts up to 1 year (assuming 1 hour daily use).
    • Automatically turns itself on and off.
    • At less than 0.5 ounces, you'll forget it's there.
    • Compatible devices connect with the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app to automatically sync your data and connect with others.


    • The Running Dynamics Pod has an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement to calculate these 6 running metrics: - Cadence is the number of steps per minute. It displays the total steps (right and left combined). - Ground contact time balance displays the left/right balance of your groudn contact time while running. It displays a percentage. For example, 53.2 with an arrow pointing left or right. - Stride length is the length of your stride from 1 footfall to the ne xt. It is measured in meters. - Vertical oscillation in your bounce while running. It displays the vertical motion of your torso, measured in centimeters for each step. - Vertical ratio is the ratio of vertical oscillation to stride length. It displays a percentage. A lower number typically indicated a better running form. - Ground contact time is the amount of time in each step that you spend on the ground while running. It is measured in milliseconds.

    But a lot of the times the POD does not sync with the Fenix 6 even with the 4.20[OPENBRK]latest[CLOSEBRK] firmware.
