The Polar Stride Sensor Bluetooth Smart - Improve Running Technique and Performance

Runners are always looking for ways to improve their performance. There’s always a goal time, distance, or speed to work towards; always another PR to hit or event to compete in. Runners push themselves in ways that make them unique from other athletes – and they need the right training tools to help.

At, we offer runners the tools they need to hit and exceed their goals, including the Polar Stride Sensor Bluetooth Smart. This unique tracking sensor allows for you to see speed and distance information using the free Polar Beat app on your smartphone, so you can track your workouts, whether you’re running on a treadmill, indoor track, around your neighborhood, or on tough mountain terrain. Wherever you need to go, the Polar Stride Bluetooth Smart Sensor comes with you. Here’s where you can download the free Polar Beat app.

The Polar Stride Bluetooth Smart Sensor provides real time speed and distance monitoring that syncs with your smartphone or Bluetooth Smart ready device. You’ll be able to measure each stride you take effortlessly, as this small and lightweight sensor fits firmly onto your shoe. It’s comfortable and durable with shock and water resistance to handle the most demanding of workouts. Plus, you get 600 hours of operating lifetime with the Polar Beat training app and a user changeable battery.

The best part is that this powerful little sensor can help you actually improve your running technique by providing you with your own running cadence and stride length on, Polar’s free online training diary. Knowing your running cadence is the first step towards upping your steps, which you can do by running drills or training to different music (you can try to run in time with the beat!). Some favorite drills for boosting cadence include downhill sprints and the favorite, fast feet!

You’ll also be able to see how your running performance changes over time with Polar’s Running Index (available with Polar Beat training app upgrade). With monitoring like this, it’s easy to plan for your successes and train toward your goal specifically, so that you make the most of your time and energy. If there’s one thing that runners know, it’s that having more time and energy to tackle a goal is invaluable.

If you want to take your training to the next level, let help with the Polar Stride Sensor Bluetooth Smart. When coupled with the Polar Beat app, this makes for a powerful training tool that can be used in conjunction with other training computers and heart rate monitors to really push yourself to the next level, whether you want to hit a PR or improve your overall running technique.
