STRYD’s running footpod has just got an update. These will be minor feature updates to most people
The updates include:
- Bluetooth watches will ‘instantly’ show power eg Apple Watch, Polar Vantage, Polar V800, Suunto 9, Suunto Spartans
- Bluetooth watches will stay connected during apparent inactivity or low-level inactivity.
- Nuanced charging that will extend the lifetime of STRYD’s battery eg if the battery is ‘mostly full’ then recharge will not happen
- Bug fixes for unusual scenarios.
ESSENTIAL READING: STRYD Review – In Detail
There are other plans afoot with new stuff from STRYD which I’m guessing we won’t see now until the early Spring 2019. The stuff I KNOW about …I guess I can’t say! I do NOT know about dual-sided pods but am ever-hopeful that will happen…one day. I would think that it might not have happened because the market may have been perceived to be too small.
STRYD have good financial backing and so ‘stuff’ should come. I guess the most pressing question for them to answer would be the apparent threat of a competing pod from Garmin in 2019 (read about that here)
