Milestone Pod Tracker Launched

Introducing the affordable waterproof foot pod, your little running buddy that records your performance data because HOW you run matters.

Milestone Sports Philippines recently launched the newest running arsenal in the market called the Milestone Pod or Pod.  While it may seem small, the Pod tracker gives the data you want to know or need about your run.  In short, it summarizes all the data for you. To top it off, it’s for everyone—whether you’re a walker or a runner. Plus, the device can be worn by clipping it on your preferred shoe.

How does the Pod work?

First, the Pod does not need a Global Positioning System (GPS) signal, which makes it possible to collect data even when in dense trees, or when running in downtown areas where tall buildings block view of the sky.  So if you have existing GPS watch or GPS App, you will get additional metrics on foot strike, rate of impact, ground contact, stride length, leg swing, and shoe life (functions like an odometer).

This is how you see it from Milestone Pod App (sample only)

Second, the Pod is simple and a stand-alone tracker.  It’s not intimidating especially for beginner runners and walkers.  It’s low cost (selling at P1695 only), always on, and a ready device.  As a Pod user, you can get tips, personalized offers, and rewards from your retailer as well.

Third, it’s waterproof and weighing 13g with battery.  The Pod allows the user (through the App) to view data on cadence, pace, steps, calories, time, distance including performance over a period of time and trends and run history. It is also compatible with select Polar, Suunto, and Garmin units and usable through popular and interactive running Apps like Zwift and Strava.

Lastly, even the data-driven athletes like to hit it out on the road without much running   accessories.  The Pod is a good alternative.

Coaching, Multisport Hub, and SwimBikeRun.PH.  For additional information about the Pod, you may also want to visit Milestone Sports Philippines’ Facebook Page.

Performance Running Gear On Launched

The running brand powered by Swiss technology has launched its own running gear for effortless running

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND – Six years after starting up, one million people worldwide are running in On shoes. As an addition to its running shoe range, the Swiss sports company has launched its own performance running gear for men and women. “A lot of runners kept asking us, ‘When can I get On apparel to go with my On shoes?’ explains On co-founder David Allemann. “Yet it took us three years to figure out how we wanted to develop apparel differently. We decided not to do another running collection that keeps changing every season. Instead, we created the absolute essentials. Our favorite running jacket. Our favorite running shorts and tights. And our favorite T-shirt.”

But how does a running jacket become your favorite one? That’s what the founders of On kept asking themselves. So they thought about their shoes and how runners kept saying that they love their Ons because they are effortless.  It takes a lot of effort to make something look effortless became their guiding thought. They started to design running gear that has to outperform while looking relaxed.

The On Essentials feature very light and stretchable fabrics to let your body move freely. They offer protection where and when you need it. Not too much, not too little. Intelligent details beyond gimmicks make a difference. And the design of the On Essentials can move between different worlds. In the end, your favorite piece is something you don’t even notice anymore, until it is gone. There are six On Essentials for men and eight for women: a jacket, two shirts, a long sleeve shirt, a short, a running pant, a tight and a tank top. Available as of August 2016 at selected retailers worldwide.  Here’s a list of On Retailers in the Philippines (as of March 17) including On Price List.
