While the Biostrap wristband collects all biometric data, wearing the shoepod provides a few additional benefits.
It is optional, but encouraged!
Uses for the Shoepod:
- Activity Classification - The shoepod is crucial for recording workouts with our activity classification feature: https://biostrap.com/activity-classification
- Sleep Lab - Record leg movements when wearing the ankle strap to sleep while sleeping with our optional subscription: https://biostrap.com/sleep-lab/
- Step Counting - We recommend choosing the option to use the shoepod for counting steps, as it does a better job of counting passive steps than the wristband.
Some customers only wear the wristband all day and to sleep, and only put on the shoepod before recording a workout.
