New wearable could change the way people run, forever

Runners can now pre-order STRIDESENSE, the first product by Scottish tech start-up Attis Fitness – but you’ll need to be quick, as only 450 pairs of its state of the art fitness tracker enabled with 3D motion tracking technology, are available.

The lab-grade product consists of five motion tracking sensors, which are placed around your legs and waist in secured pockets in provided STRIDESENSE leggings and connect via Bluetooth to the app.

The product will be the first fitness tracker on the market that measures your whole stride – not just the movement of wrists or feet. Instead, STRIDESENSE is the only running product which measures movement across 10 specialised running metrics to provide specific, personalised feedback.

Included in-app is StrideMotion technology – a new form of motion tracking that captures the data from a runners’ leg movement and displays it in a 3D visualiser on your device. This allows the user to get direct, visual feedback on their performances, alongside metric scoring data in and post-run and exercise advice to help runners reach their best.

Complete with compression-fit leggings, designed with smart pockets for the sensors, and compatible with an easy-to-use app system, STRIDESENSE is making professional running lab level technology easily accessible like never before.

Founder and CEO of Attis Fitness, sports engineer Tim Elizondo from Glasgow, who founded the company in 2016 believes the product will “change the fitness tracker market for the better”.

He said: “After four years of developing and perfecting STRIDESENSE in our labs, we’re excited to finally share the finished product with the world.

“We believe STRIDESENSE is the future of running technology. Having used other fitness trackers, I felt what was on the market just wasn’t helping me improve my running. The data provided post-run was simply telling me little about my performance and more to the point, by measuring metric data from my wrist or feet, they weren’t capable of giving me the whole picture of my runs.

“I struggled with recurring injuries and became frustrated at not understanding what was causing them, or even how to correct it without professional analysis and insight. I realised a tracker could do this, saving runners time and money>.

“As a sports engineer, I’ve been lucky enough to work with the latest sports lab technology and was amazed at how beneficial it is for performance and injury prevention. I wanted to make this technology readily available and accessible to all – not just professionals.
