RunScribe Plus Review Buy Price Sale

 

RunScribe have finally announced today that the longstanding ‘sensor fusion‘ beta process is finished – ie Sensor Fusion is LIVE.

This means that the pace/distance calculations should now be notably more accurate if you are coming from a previous non-beta version. I am assuming that this will also feed through into a more refined running power calculation. Running Power is also LIVE.

  • If you already have RunScribe Plus then you need to follow the instructions below to update the firmware and double-calibrate the pods.
  • If you are looking to buy some Pods then now is a sensible time (details and discounts below)
    • RunScribe Plus definitely gives the most detailed gait mechanics for a runner. For a start it has LEFT and RIGHT stats.
    • RunScribe Plus should give you notably more accurate pace/distance than most other pods – perhaps only STRYD will be slightly better.
    • If you are ONLY looking at running with power then RunScribe Plus *IS* a contender but you will also need to consider: Garmin Running Power (sort of free but likely least accurate); Polar Vantage V (October 2018 release); and STRYD

, I will clarify the Vantage V offering as more details emerge and as I start to play (I mean train) with it.

RunScribe Plus Update Tips

  1. Upgrade pods to firmware >v36.01 via the smartphone app
  2. On a table: Then on the app RS Tools -> Calibrate Flat.
  3. On your shoes: Then on the app RS Tools -> Calibrate Mounting

Tidbits

Great to see this!! It’s been a long road, but RS simply has to get their product out there before others come along and eat their lunch (zwift/milestone?). Looking forward to your full review, and I assume one from DCR too.

Nicely summarized.
I’ll be updating an older article I did with the prototypes, this is how GOVSS power *was* calculated at the time. http://www.georgeron.com/2017/11/the-govss-running-power-algorithm-and.html
