- Landing Zone (midfoot-strike) (88% L | 96% R)
- Ground Contact Time (340ms L | 328 ms R)
- AVG Impact Rate (553 L | 530 R)
Altra has hit a home run in terms of being the first in making a friendly shoe that looks completely normal, but is in fact loaded with cutting edge technology. There are a few things I would have liked to have been able to do with this product which are not available right now:
- Droid based iFit account creation (I had to use iOS for that step) when coupling to the shoes for the first time.
- A way to overlay elevation data with landing zone, ground contact time and average impact rate. I suspect going up and down hills would change what my feet are doing. In the meantime I can record separate sections going uphill, downhill and flats and see what those look like.
- Force sync options – I’m struggling to push data from the App to iFit’s site to see other possible views.
- Raw data – At this time there is no raw data to download which would be fun to make my own graphs with. A CSV file, XML or something easy to parse would be ideal.
