MilestonePod

MilestonePod is a really interesting device for runners and walkers. On first glance, it looks basic. It doesn’t look high tech at all. By design, it’s simple. It’s attached to your shoe, and it’s always tracking your runs/walks. You can then sync the device over Bluetooth to their iPhone or Android apps. There is no start or stop button. You simply get moving, and the device tracks your steps. At $25, MilestonePod is a really in-expensive fitness tracker for runners of any kind.
