Sensoria’s smart running shoe, which was unveiled in January at CES 2017 and is now available for pre-order, has finally reached this milestone. In honor of the occasion, you can get one for $99, which is roughly a 50% discount off the regular retail price.
The Redmond-based startup has now been working in the field of intelligent clothing and footwear for a period of three years. Perhaps the product that has brought the firm the most notoriety is the intelligent fitness sock. The user is provided with real-time information like their cadence and foot landing method through the clothing, which connects to a lightweight anklet and is infused with pressure sensors made entirely of textile material.
A newly released product uses an improved version of the technology that was previously available. The smart shoes make use of an innovative detachable electronic gadget called the Sensoria Core, which has been developed from the ground up to work in conjunction with integrated textile pressure sensors.
The more simplified version of the Sensoria Core weighs less than 7 grams and offers a battery life that lasts for a whole day of continuous operation. If you were to crack up the device, which is around the size of a quarter, you would discover an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer on the inside. When paired with the data from the textile pressure sensor, you will have access to a variety of statistics.
In a manner analogous to that of the socks, the device is capable of wireless communication with the companion smartphone app and internet dashboard. In addition to the statistics on pace, distance, duration, and the number of calories burned, this page will also provide you with details on track cadence, foot landing method, contact time on the ground, and impact forces.
During your run, the application will also provide you with real-time audio and visual feedback. You will also receive programmes that enable you to plan both short-term and long-term goals, as well as track your progress over the course of time.
The footwear is available in a wide range of sizes as well as hues. At this time, they are only sold on the website sensoriafitness.com. However, their distribution will soon be expanded.
Davide Vigano, CEO and Co-Founder of Sensoria, stated that “while products like Fitbit count your steps, the most important metrics in a run are your pace, cadence, foot landing, and the impact that you generate each time you hit the ground.” “While products like Fitbit count your steps, the most important metrics in a run are your pace, cadence, foot landing, and the impact that you generate each time you
