Eligible Connected Footwear workouts will receive additional stats called 'Form Summary' on their workouts which will include cadence, stride length, ground contact time, and average foot strike angle.
If your workout is eligible for Form Summary, you should be able to view this by scrolling down on your workout analysis.
- Cadence - Your running cadence is defined as the number of steps of your right foot you take per minute
- Stride Length - Your stride length is the distance between successive ground contacts of the same foot
- Ground Contact Time -
- Foot Strike Angle -
When tapping into your stats, you should be able to view a graph of your actual stat vs. the range of your stat.
Some workouts are additionally eligible for Coaching Tips! If your workout is eligible for a coaching tip, you should be able to see a blue megaphone on your workout list, or a red banner after opening your workout.
We use height, weight, age, gender, and pace to determine a target cadence and stride length range. Based on this target range, we provide you with personalized tips on how to improve your running performance and avoid injury.
