As part of my 2020 training, I’m going to get more active in triathlon training and running. TR is still my go-to for cycling, but I’ve been splitting time between Zwift and TR for now until I get back to TR 100% after January 1, and looking to use Zwift for running (too dark, too cold right now to run outdoors). Does anyone have any experience with the various running pods that are supported for indoor running?
It looks like I basically have two options (Zwift RunPod – formerly Milestone; Stryd)
The Zwift RunPod (formerly Milestone, which Zwift acquired) has hit-and-miss reviews, but it’s only $30. Some say it works pretty well for the price and others say accuracy is 80% at best, which makes it basically useless in my opinion.
It looks like Stryd is the gold standard for running pods and seems to work well indoors. However, it’s also $200, and I’m not willing to spend that right now for something that I’m not entirely sold on yet.
The Garmin Running Dynamics Pod seems to work well for running outdoors, but is not currently supported on Zwift.
