There’s a lot of pictures here. Probably enough for someone to get a fair way through writing a review 😉
I’ve been playing for a week or so with the various options I have for comparing the RunScribe PLUS pods against ‘other similar products’. Despite the Runscribe looking the same as the previous PRO version, there is quite a lot different about the new iteration, V3.
Most interesting is the supprt advertised to be offered with the main running watch brands – Garmin, Polar and Suunto. RunScribe will be doing that with BLE/BTLE support and Garmin ANT+ support, the latter via CIQ apps. In the event of a watch failure, the RunScribe also handily caches all data on the pods which then sync to your smart phone and RunScribe’s online dashboard.
RunScribe’s online dashbaord has been tinkered with since I last reviewed the previous Runscribe, below. But it’s conceptually quite similar and a nice step above what you would get from Garmin Connect.
The other big change, currently in beta, is the introduction of RUNNING POWER. This should be an interesting battleground for 2018 when Garmin will also likely have their efforts released and working.
Q&A: Please ask below. But one of the cool things you can do is look at live gait metrics as you run..yes not just power.
Q&A: I’ve found the NewBalance Zante, shown in the images, consistently gives me average shock rather than high shock. Good news for my dodgy legs and injury prevention. I can’t decide what the value of saving 3 weeks of injury time is. Probably at least $200 😉
PRICE, AVAILABILITY & DISCOUNT
V3 PLUS Pricing: USA $250, UK/EU GBP250
DISCOUNT CODE: SCtfk10 (UK, USA and EU)
If you want to get a pair of RunScribe pods now before my review (tut, tut) you can buy direct from RunScribe in the USA using the image links below or from NewRunningGear in the UK. I suspect, like STRYD, that RunScribe will NOT find its way onto Amazon in the USA at all and will only find its way onto Amazon in the UK if NewRunningGear put it there.
Either image link supports this blog in a small way. Thank you.
