Altra introduces smart running shoe

Orem, UT-based Altra introduced its Halo running shoe with an integrated gait-detecting sensor in January at the 2015 International Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.

The iFit sensor is built into the Halo’s midsole and sends real-time data on foot strike zone, cadence, and ground impact force to a synched smartphone or iFit GPS Watch so runners can adjust their gait during workouts.

Altra plans to make the Halo available commercially in late 2015 priced at approximately $180.
