Improve your running technique with Suunto and Stryd

SuuntoRun — 2024年2月20日

As Stryd and Suunto continue to innovate, the possibilities for runners of all levels expand. Learn how the new SuuntoPlus Stryd sport app will help you to improve your running.

Do you want to optimize your running performance and technique? If yes, pair your Suunto running watch with a Stryd sensor to measure running power and other key metrics, such as leg spring stiffness, vertical oscillation, ground contact time, and impact loading rate.

With the new SuuntoPlus Stryd sports app, you can follow these values live while running and get real-time feedback and guidance. You can also access your data for after analysis in Stryd PowerCenter, a platform that helps you plan, analyze, and improve your running.

With the Suunto watch and the Stryd sensor, you can take your running to the next level!

The new SuuntoPlus Stryd sport app shows you four key running metrics live during the workout and saves them for later analyses.

 

Follow four key running metrics

With your Suunto and the Stryd sensor, you can learn how to balance your leg spring stiffness and vertical oscillation, reduce your ground contact time, and impact loading rate to run faster, smoother, and safer.

Leg spring stiffness

Leg spring stiffness is a measure of how well you use the elastic energy in your legs to propel yourself forward. It is related to your running power and efficiency.

Vertical oscillation

Vertical oscillation is a measure of how much you bounce up and down with each stride. It is related to your running form and energy waste.

Ground contact time

Ground contact time is a measure of how long your foot stays in contact with the ground on each step. It is related to your running speed and intensity.

Impact loading rate

Impact loading rate is a measure of how quickly you apply force to the ground when you land. It is related to your injury risk and recovery.

Pairing a Stryd sensor with a Suunto can help you monitor and optimize these four metrics by providing real-time feedback and personalized insights.

 

These drills will improve your running

Different types of drills can help you enhance your running metrics – and your running.

  • Leg spring stiffness: This is a measure of how well you use the elastic energy in your legs to propel yourself forward. To improve your leg spring stiffness, you can do plyometric exercises, such as skipping, bounding, or hopping. These exercises help you develop explosive strength and elasticity in your leg muscles and tendons.
  • Vertical oscillation: This is a measure of how much you bounce up and down with each stride. To reduce your vertical oscillation, you can do drills that focus on your posture, alignment, and cadence, such as running with high knees, butt kicks, or quick feet. These drills help you minimize your vertical movement and improve your running form and efficiency.
  • Ground contact time: This is a measure of how long your foot stays in contact with the ground on each step. To lower your ground contact time, you can do exercises that strengthen your muscles and tendons.

Stryd is a wearable device that clips onto your shoe, and  communicates with your Suunto running watch.

How to use Stryd with Suunto

  • Go to the SuuntoPlus Store in the Suunto app on your phone and install SuuntoPlus Stryd sport app on your watch.
  • Before starting an activity, go down to exercise options and select the Stryd sport app under SuuntoPlus menu.
  • Once you select the sports app in the watch, it connects to Stryd sensor. If the connection is for the wrong sensor, just reselect the app.
  • Start your activity. The Stryd data will be presented as an extra screen (swipe left or push the middle button to view it).
  • During your run, the Stryd sport app will show you live data from the Stryd sensor.
  • After you have completed your activity, your running data will be available in both your Suunto and Stryd apps so you can start your analysis.

The Stryd sensor and SuuntoPlus Stryd sport app are compatible with Suunto Race, Suunto Vertical, Suunto 9 Peak Pro, Suunto 9 Peak, Suunto 9 Baro, Suunto 9, Suunto 5 Peak, Suunto 5 and Suunto 3 watches.
