The January 2010 issue of Runners’ World has a great blurb about footpods, which are essentially devices separate from the watch that allow the watch to measure speed, distance, and other metrics.  You can read the blurb by clicking here.  Footpods aren’t new, but haven’t been as prevalent as GPS devices due to limitations on accuracy and reliability.  Technology is changing that though, just like everything else.  With their accuracy and reliability improving, more and more watch brands are starting to incorporate footpods as part of the watch package and The ActiveWatcher has observed a noticeable increased in interest among the running community.  As the blurb says, however, calibration is the key to ensure continued accuracy and reliability.
