Now you can train indoors with your Forerunner and still track your distance, pace and calories burned. The wireless Foot Pod attaches to your running shoe (threads through the laces for a secure fit) and transmits your distance and pace to the Forerunner. Use the Foot Pod on an indoor track, treadmill or anywhere you can't get GPS satellite signals.
The Foot Pod is designed to measure forward-motion activities like walking and running. Unlike step counters, the Foot Pod can accurately report your distance traveled whether you're walking, jogging or sprinting. For even more accurate data, you can calibrate the Foot Pod to adjust for your personal stride mechanics.
Have you always wanted to use your Forerunner to calculate speed and distance when training indoors? Well now you can! This shoe-mounted accessory will provide pace and distance to the Forerunner 305 when GPS reception is unavailable. Speed and distance information is calculated in the Foot Pod and transferred to the Forerunner. The information from the Foot Pod will be automatically displayed and stored. This item runs on AAA battery power and provides approximately 65 hours of use. The Forerunner 305 needs to be updated to software version 2.5 before it will be compatible with the Foot Pod. The Forerunner 305 used with the Foot Pod accessory will provide the complete package for the indoor and outdoor runner.
The Garmin Forerunner 305 is a vital training tool for runners and other outdoor athletes. But its speed and distance calculations rely on a a GPS signal from the skies above, leaving those who want to run or train indoors, well, out in the cold.
The Foot Pod uses a tiny ANT Sport transmitter to communicate with the Forerunner 305.
The Foot Pod is built on Dynastream technology, which solves the challenge of accurately measuring a user's speed and distance in real time. The system was designed to measure each stride via a patented accelerometer, which measures all parameters of each foot stride, computes that data, then wirelessly transmits speed and distance information to the Forerunner 305 wrist unit via a 2.4 GHz signal. To date, Dynastream technology is the first and only commercially viable, accurate stride analysis technology that can be used outside the laboratory environment.
Simple to Use
Dynastream technology accurately measures your stride--whether you're walking, running, or sprinting--using a patented accelerometer.
Note: The Forerunner 305 needs to be updated to software version 2.5 before it will be compatible with the Foot Pod. You can download the software update at garmin.com/support.
