Looks like someone has been spending money on their product this year. After MILESTONE’s recent release of firmware to enable live broadcast of speed/distance, today yet more new features are announced (here).
Here are the headlines (in their words):
- Run/Walk Toggle. For each running session that includes walking, you can view gait metrics for running minutes only. This one-of-a-kind feature is ideal for runners using a run/walk training program such as the Galloway Method or for mixed sessions such as intervals.
- Duration Adjustment. In addition to distance calibration previously available, you can now trim off your warm-up and cool-down. Once unwanted minutes are deleted, all metrics automatically update, giving you clean data for the exact workout you want to see.
- Export Options. In addition to Excel, you can now download any session as a .TCX file, which is compatible with Strava, TrainingPeaks and others similar platforms. From the Run Log, swipe left on the run you want to download.
- Better Multi-Pod Interface. For runners using two or more Pods, life just got a little easier. Now shoe names appear throughout the Run Log and on the Run Details screen.
WHAT IS MILESTONE?: It’s a cheap option to make the INSTANT RUNNING PACE on your sports watch much more accurate. It also has LOTS of other app-based features such as the ability to track the mileage of your shoes. for those of you using STRYD+SUUNTO it’s a good temporary workaround for sensor compatibility issues.
