Running Gadgets: How The Latest Technology Can Help Your Running

Running is one of the oldest and most instinctive forms of exercise around – just put one foot in front of the other, rinse and repeat in quick succession.

Our Team has put together a list of all the best-running gadgets & accessories that will transform you into a lean, mean running machine.

Fitbit Inspire 2

This easy-to-wear fitness tracker comes with a touchscreen as well as a back button to scroll back. It has a very comfortable watch strap and a lot of great options.

I love its always-on touchscreen that will flip on the second I turn my wrist. And as you scroll through the screen you can see different options including a heart rate monitor. It can also track your calories, your distance. Although it doesn’t have GPS onboard, it does work with your phone’s GPS to track your overall distance. I love how I can challenge myself to finish a certain distance that’s way better than yesterday

Whoop 4.0

Whoop has been around for a while, but each time they update their product it just gets better and better. Whoop functions like a membership plan that gives you access to health insights and the ability to use the software to improve your performance. The heart monitor comes free with a yearly subscription cost of $288. The Whoop tracks bodily functions like heart rate, respiratory rate, and sleep to help deduce whether you’re recovering well from a stressful day or a hard workout. If you haven’t slept well and have an erratic heart rate, the device can let you know that you’re likely not in the best shape for running and could use a day off.

Similarly, it can also let you know when you’re well-rested and ready to take on the world. These metrics can help athletes perform at their best when they’re feeling well, and ease back when they could use a little self-care. That makes it a great tool to use.

Better yet, Whoop is always updating their platform, and partnering with scientists to help make accurate assessments based on the information gathered by these wearable devices. Making evidence-based reports on how to perform your best is one of my favorite ways to use this tech

Lasso Performance Compression Socks

Lasso Socks are the evolution of what a sock can be. By combining cutting-edge ankle support with compression-based foot and arch support.

The HyperCompression™ sock technology helps keep muscles warm, reduces swelling, and increases circulatory blood flow.

Graduated 15-20mmHg compression in the socks gently pushes blood flow back up the leg, helping to prevent swelling and even varicose veins. Lasso’s patented foot and arch compression support delivers active joint security and reduces foot fatigue. Physicians and top trainers use Lasso as a daily ankle support tool to help top athletes stay healthy while they train and perform.

Knix Catalyst Sports Bra

Each body is different, and Knix is creating a space for all of them, the Catalyst being a stepping stone into that discourse.

This is a zero-bounce bra without sacrificing comfort or ease of breathing. Perforated holes between the cups increase airflow, and the molded cups eliminate that “smushed together” feeling. The trick to the ladder straps is to fit them tighter, allowing them to naturally stretch.

Designed to drastically reduce breast movement, the Catalyst outperformed over 800 bras it was tested against. Get comfortable performing your best.

Reflective Gloves by Nathan

These lightweight, fleece-lined gloves help keep the fingers, hands, and wrists warm through the coldest runs. Plus

, their touchscreen technology actually works! So many gloves boast they’re “tech-friendly” but if you’ve ever tried to use your smartphone in the cold while wearing bulky running mittens, you know that’s not always true.

Other highlights include a built-in “my nose is running” chamois in the thumb to catch rogue drips. The back of the hand graphic detailing is not only aesthetically pleasing but highly reflective, and there’s a little pocket for a single key or ID card. A small ask: a clip to hold the gloves together when not in use.

AfterShokz Wireless Open-Ear Headphones

AfterShockz is a Texas-based manufacturer of open-ear headphones. The product sits comfortably next to the wearer’s ears and vibrates against their cheekbones when turned on – allowing sound to reach into the inner ear without requiring it to travel along the ear canal.

Though the audio quality may not be perfect compared to what standard headphones provide, the health benefits outweigh this. Runners must be aware of their surroundings at all times. People and oncoming vehicles are potential hazards that runners must respond to. Open-ear headphones allow users to listen to music while being able to hear their environment. In this way, users gain the benefits of controllable audio while being able to fully focus on their run and safety.

Matthew, A Technology Specialist.

When worn, the devices also offer user-friendly controls located behind the ear. There are four models to choose from (with one being a headset for home or office use).

Available at:
AfterShockz’s website ranges from $129.00 to $249.00,
