I have a treadmill at home and have been using a Milestone/Zwift footpod to record distance accurately with my Forerunner 935. I've found the reported distance fairly accurate after calibration but it now seems like the footpod is no longer communicating - without the footpod the 935 over estimates my distance covered by about 20%.

My only complaint with the Zwift pod was I found I was always replacing the battery and now it has failed think I should try something else - does anyone else here use a footpod on their treadmill to record runs accurately and would you recommend any particular model/brand?

I use a North Pole Engineering RUNN which works well for me.

Also available from the Zwift store, but itโ€™s slightly cheaper direct.

I have used the garmin pod fine with a watch but got the polar one for zwift (due to wanting BT). Itโ€™s been fine too.

I have the Garmin one, and it seems pretty good to me.

Sorry forgot to respond to this - I went with the North Pole Engineering RUNN option in the end - thanks for the recommendation.

The best one is apparently Stryd, but it also very pricy.

Got something to say?
