Essential reading: Top fitness trackers and health gadgets
The London-based outfit behind the product says NURVV Run has been rigorously tested over the past three years. The lightweight insoles are embedded with 32 high-precision sensors that work in conjunction with two GPS trackers weighing 0.8oz/22.7g each. Battery life is around 5 hours between charges.
The intelligent insoles go much further in assessing your running performance and technique that your run-of-the mill sports watch. Data is captured 1,000 times per second (per insole) and includes info on cadence, step length, foot-strike, pronation and balance.
Users get real-time audio, visual and haptic feedback that includes personalized speed and technique workouts and guidance on achieving a pre-set target. The thing has the ability to connect to Apple Watch or Garmin (via ANT) for these in-run alerts.
The accompanying smartphone app spits out more detailed guidance which includes a complete picture of your running technique. You also get a Running Health score after each run which shows your injury risk in an easy to understand way. This takes into account training load, pronation, cadence and balance. You can then delve further into the statistics to understand problem areas before it’s too late.
NURVV Run will also provide recommendations on optimal training distances and zones to avoid doing too much too soon. And let’s face it, this is something that many of us have been guilty of.
“Runners are able to collect a huge amount of data about each and every run they do. However, most of what they capture is historic, inaccurate and provides few insights on how to be a better runner,” said Jason Roberts, founder and CEO of NURVV.
“NURVV Run will revolutionize how people run by accurately capturing the metrics that matter most, directly from the point of action, before using live coaching to help them improve in a simple, easy-to-understand way.”
The gizmo can be used for both indoor or outdoor training and works come rain or shine. In case you were wondering, there’s no need to bring your smartphone with you during exercise as everything functions entirely independently.
The $299.95 NURVV Run insoles are available for preorder from today on www.nurvv.com. They can be used with all types of running shoes and you’ll get a choice of sizes when you purchase. Shipping starts on January 20th.
