Q: Can personal training data from my device be uploaded to Training Peaks?
A: We are currently developing the capability and it will be available soon. This will be automatically delivered to your app on your smart device as a simple update.
Q: Can data be sent to another device through ANT or ANT+?
A: This is currently under consideration.
Q: Do you need to have your smart device with you when using RPM²?
A: Yes, the data is transmitted via Bluetooth technology so your smart device must be with you at all times.
Q: How long will the insoles last?
A: All components specifications are designed to last for between 1.5 million and 2.0 million strikes during the running portion of training exercises. This, for many athletes, is approximately 2 years following the recommended training exercises. The durability of your device will be dependent upon how you choose to use the device as a part of your training.
Q: How does this compare to other power meter devices on the market?
A: Power meters range from $2,000 to $4,000 and require maintenance every few years. The RPM² system offers longevity equivalent to, or better than traditional power meters, even if replacement RPM² systems are needed within a two year period.
The value of RPM² is that you have three devices in one (gait analysis, range of motion/ pressure analysis, cycling analysis to include a power meter. The cost of RPM² ranges from $699 to $749, compared to approximately $3,000 for similar tests/devices.
