Running Dynamics

If you want to run more efficiently, analyzing your running dynamics is a great place to start. These biomechanical metrics can help you understand your running style and trends in order to improve your form. Your cadence, vertical oscillation, ground contact time, ground contact time balance, stride length and vertical ratio are displayed during your run and can be reviewed afterward. It’s kind of like having your running form analyzed at a running store or gait lab, except all you need is your Forerunner watch and a compatible running dynamics accessory. Since running dynamics are about how your whole body moves in space, they can’t be measured at the wrist. These metrics require a body-mounted accessory to pair with your watch.

Running Dynamics Pod

The easy-to-use pod is so small, you probably won’t even notice it’s there. Just clip it onto the back waistband of your shorts, start your watch, and head out for a run.

HRM-Run

HRM-Dual

In addition to ANT+® connectivity, this heart rate monitor transmits real-time heart rate data over BLUETOOTH® Low Energy technology, so you can train indoors with third-party training apps such as Zwift while sharing accurate data with your Garmin device.
