MilestonePod Review

MilestonePod Review | TheFitFoodieMama.comI originally saw MilestonePod on a blog or Instagram or somewhere on social media this past winter.  My initial impression upon seeing it was that it was merely a pedometer of sorts and I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure right away what it was all about. Then, over the last several months I kept seeing them pop up more and more on social media so I decided to investigate further and discovered that MilestonePod was so much more than a pedometer.  
In fact, these Pods not only track your steps (which is not it’s main intent) but they are meant to record your mileage on your running shoes which is important information to know so that you have a better idea of when to replace your shoes to prevent injury.  The Pod also tracks pace, cadence, and calories burned.  All of this information can be synced via Bluetooth and downloaded into the MilestonePod app that will display a ton of information about each run.MilestonePod Review |
Setting up the MilestonePod is fairly easy, you just take it out of the box, install the battery, sync to the app via bluetooth (make sure you download the app first) then lace through your shoe and go! Once you have it laced through, there is no need to remove it or even press a button.  The Pod will start collecting data as soon as it senses movement and will even store up to two weeks of mileage including individual run mileage which you can view on the MilestonePod application. 
Above are a few different screen shots from the app from one of my recent runs. As you can see, it will display which shoe you used to run and will sync all the information about each run including;  duration, distance, pace and cadence on the dashboard.  Within the app you can also look at your run details which will display more information such as; time of run, distance, pace and peak pace, duration, cadence and peak cadence, stance time and it’s peak, calories burned and total steps.
To ensure that it tracks properly, you can adjust your run distance if it differs from what the pod has recorded which will help to calibrate the Pod for future runs. There is also a Facebook sharing feature as well as a place to store your emergency contact and medical information.

MilestonePod comes in three colors; black, blue and pink.  I chose the pink one because it oh so perfectly matches my new running shoes, as you can see above. 😉
My experience: 
Since receiving the MilestonePod approximately 10 days ago, I have completed 5 runs/ 43 miles with it and I can honestly say that I think it is really a cool little gadget. The initial set up was fairly simple, although it did take me a few tries to get it to sync to the app (probably my fault as I am a bit tech impaired).  Using the Pod is seriously as easy as walking out the door and syncing it is as simple as refreshing the MilestonePod app.  
This thing is my new running must have, for real. There have even been two occasions where my regular GPS tracking app has failed me and the Pod came to the rescue at the end of those runs by allowing me to view my run details which provided me with data that I would have been without otherwise.  Seriously, not knowing your time or pace or distance is a NIGHTMARE and this thing was like a little magic nugget of numbers <3
Overall, I give MilestonePod two big thumbs up! I am even going to invest in a few more Pods to pair with my other shoes and right now they are having a HUGE sale plus a pretty awesome contest all September.  Here are the details straight from MilestonePod themselves:
