Making the right decisions while running — when to slow down, when to speed up — is absolutely crucial to getting an efficient workout in. Such subtle decisions can be the difference between prematurely finishing a run or exceeding a previous record. Even seasoned runners have a difficult time making such decisions.
A solution to this problem comes in the way of the GoMore Stamina Sensor. The GoMore is wearable that wraps around the chest, acting like a fuel gauge for the body so that runners can visualize their stamina as a number. Using electrodes positioned on the wearable, the sensor helps runners make speed det%rminations via real-time vibrations. Additionally, the sensor helps runners understand their theoretical limits after a completed run. Naturally, the product can also log and save running history through a companion iOS or Android app. The GoMore’s patented algorithm finds the relationship between heart rate, lactate build up, and energy burn to make all of this happen, giving runners the right kind of information they need to go even further. $120 gets backers a GoMore Stamina Sensor with an expected ship date of May 2015. The campaign is looking to raise $100,000 by April 11.
The closest product to something like the GoMore is the Zoi, which urges runners on with very specific feedback about variables like pronation and ground contact time. The GoMore’s heavy focus on stamina makes it unique in the wearables segment, something that is increasingly more difficult with every new wearable on the market. Runners of every skill level will surely be interested.
