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" Sylvie Coleman

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" Kyle Risley, Founder & CEO of Lift Vault www.liftvault.com

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. A proprietary blend of poly fibers draw out moisture from the foot and improve the flow of air to keep the foot dry and comfortable. 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.
