RUNVI Advanced Digital Running Coach

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-06-15

Improve your form as you run with the RUNVI Advanced Digital Running Coach. Coming in the form of soles for your shoes, this intelligent system provides you with a real-time coach. The smart app communicates with you via your smartwatch or your smartphone. In addition, it provides coaching in the form of visual and audio alerts. With 30 pressure sensors and two accelerometers, you can tune into the usual metrics such as distance, pace, calories, and elevation. But, RUNVI goes a step further and tells you about your cadence, foot-strike pattern, and symmetry. With all of this information, you can adjust your form. And, the coaching takes things even further by adapting to your goals for personalized training. It includes indications of fatigue, body posture feedback, coaching content and videos, and so much more. RUNVI also has music integration, GPS, and automatically recognizes activity.

Hi @Damijan SELAN, Thanks for reaching out! The RUNVI Classic has one pair of RUNVI and you get a 55 Euros discount (which is 27% off). Whereas, the Solemate bundle has two pairs of RUNVI insoles where you get 119 Euros of discount (which is 30% off).

Hi @Henrik Ahlin, Thanks for reaching out! Initially RUNVI will be compatible with Apple Watch and keeping the iPhone in the pocket. Very soon we will be increasing the number of devices to which RUNVI is compatible with. Later on, the goal is to be able to use Apple Watch without having to use the iPhone.

Will Runvi make it possible to send data (for instance run power) to a Garmin Fenix (via bluetooth) when not using an iPhone (or when using an iphone)

Congratulations on reach 150% funding so far :) will you be looking at stretch goals for the next milestone? Thanks!

Hi @Andreas PE, Thanks for reaching out. At least there is no chance YET :-) The RUNVI insoles are made and designed for running shoes in the first place. But thanks for the input, we'll def look into it.

Hi @khawar mehmood, After the campaign is closed, we will send out a survey with a couple questions, including shoe size and address.

Hey, seems like, there is no chance for barefoot runners. I'm just running with cutproof socks.

what about the foot size? there was no questions about that... or it come later?

Hi @Isaac Bergman, 1) Will there be training plans available? e.g. "Run a half-marathon", "Speed work", "Cadence drills", etc. - Yes, RUNVI will provide training plans depending on your performance goals and technique. 2) Will the app actively adjust the coaching strategy based on live HRM feedback shared from other sensors? For example if I'm having an off-day, will the coach go easier on me, or if I'm feeling very well it will encourage me to increase the difficulty? etc. - The coaching in the app will be tailored to you based on the baseline. 3) Does the app override the audio if I'm listening to music or a podcast? - You will be able to listen to music or a podcast, but the voice feedback will override the audio. 4) How is the power data (watts) obtained? Is there an actual power meter (strain gauge?) or is it just an estimate? What level of accuracy can we expect? - The power will be calculated from impact. 5) Have any running professionals tested the production samples and can vouch for the accuracy of the algorithms and data? - We are putting finishing touches on our algorithms together with Dr. Steffen Willwacher from the German sports university in Cologne and we are conducting extensive testing with our group of elite athletes headed by the former Olympic runner Jonas Plass.

With Apple Watch 3 cellular, it will be ideal for RUNVI work without lugging a phone when you are running. For consideration. Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Julian Gonzalez Cruz, Our insoles are designed to last as long as a good pair of running shoes. Ideally, you should replace them every 500 to 700km. When you replace them, there is no need to buy an entire bundle as we will also offer the soles on their own for a reduced price.

Hi @William Quillen, Thanks for reaching out! All that RUNVI needs is the connection to your IPhone. Even if you had an Apple Watch to take to your runs, you still would need your phone as well. As long as the RUNVI app is activated and connected to your insoles, there is no problem with running with your Garmin Watch as well.

Hi @MaKa, Thanks again for reaching out. 1- How far is your development of Apple Watch and iOS app? Are these feature complete and need polishing or what you have in the campaign are wireframes and mockups? - The development is going very well! We are working on finishing some details and do the testing as well already. 2- When is the STEP 2 and STEP 3 estimated delivery time? - They will all roll out as Firmware updates, beginning early 2019. 3- How do you deal with different foot shapes and pronations, etc? - We are working very closely with Dr. Steffen Willwacher from the German Sports University and the IFD in Cologne. He is an expert on Biomechanics. The shape of our insoles will be optimized to correspond as good as possible with the natural structure of the foot. Also our Insole development is based on deep studies with our insole supplier. 4- What are dimensions of the core? How much does it weigh now, what is your estimate of mass production unit weight? - We cannot disclose details, but very light. Size is 35 x 19 mm 5- Considering you have stated "The battery lasts up to 8-10 hours of intensive running" what is the battery capacity? Is it replaceable? - We cannot disclose details, battery is not replaceable - but all core can be replaced. 6- Do you have any set of graphs, or structured data, that shows the data being collected and information being computed out of it? - Of course, but just for internal research and development. 7- How does this compare with other similar products, e.g arion.run, did you compare your accuracy with their product? - Like many other companies, we did and still do internal research on all similar products. 8- Have you engaged with any production facilities on details of how a production ready model should look like? There is a huge huge huge difference between a single made sample and what is going to be produced in mass by a assembly line? - We have been working with our production partners for almost a year, we have a big team of highly talented and experienced professionals with experience in high-volume manufacturing.

I posted few questions on the very first day of the project launch. Could someone please take a look and see if you can provide any details on those. Also I want to add two more questions to the list: - You said you will have the sensors to work without requiring the phone to be present while running, Runner+sensors+Apple watch. Do you have any time estimate for this?
- Do you have some stretch goals to announce now that the funding is progressing in high speed? :-)

Hello, Do you need an Apple Watch for the information to work? I always run with my iPhone in pocket. However I use a Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire as my watch. Will the app and insoles still work?
Julian Gonzalez Cruz
Review from Kickstarter
How will replacement will function after its life span? Will there be a discount for backers? And also how many miles of life those this sole have?
Thanks

Hi @Chris Quinn Schone, Thanks for reaching out! High intensity and speed workouts is planned for the training. In terms of the weighted vest - as long as it’s below the maximum weight of 120kg that RUNVI can handle, it shouldn't be a problem.
Chris Quinn Schone
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, most of the running I do is high intenisty and shorter duration stuff, will you have coaching available for speed work? Also, I sometimes run with a weighted vest, would that be possible with Runvi?

Hi @Midhun Sreekumar Menon, It’s a priority, we will have a more precise information later on, for now we expect late spring 2019.

Hi @Jari Pestelacci, Thank you very much for your pledge! You will be able to use them in your ice skates for sure. Nevertheless the first version will be tailored specifically to runners, some of the metrics and features will therefore not be of importance to ice skaters - other metrics important to ice skaters, won't be provided (initially).

Hi @Diego Caratozzolo, Thank you! 1: For now, in order to get the full RUNVI experience, we recommend to take your regular insoles out and replace them with RUNVI. 2: Leg stiffness is not an initial priority at the moment, but we'll definitely look into it in the future.

I have two questions :
1:It is possible to use this insole under another pair ?
2:We’ll see also about the Leg Stiffness?
Thx!!

Hi @Tiago Oliveira, Thanks for your questions! Yes, there will be an Android Version of the RUNVI app very soon. For now, in order to get the full RUNVI experience, we recommend to take your regular insoles out and replace them with RUNVI. Compatibility with correction insoles is definitely a topic we'll look into.

Hey Daniel, saw you were answering other questions and as a backer of this project I'm hoping you just happened to accidentally miss it. Nonetheless, I'll ask again 😉 "Quick question, will I need my iPhone with me at all times? Or can I just run with my Apple Watch and then after my run it will transfer the data to my phone?" Thanks Daniel.

Hi @Sergio Andre Gentil, Thanks for reaching out. At the moment we are focussing on the development of a solution tailored to runners. Although you will be able to see your weight distribution in a live heatmap, it won't be recorded or analyzed over a longer period of time. That being said, we might be thinking about a solution for use cases just like yours down the road. We will keep you posted on this in our closed RUNVI Insiders Facebook group and through our newsletter. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RUNVI.INSIDERS/

Review from Kickstarter
i will be completely honest i hate to run, however i did have an accident were i herniated my back, and i have a job that requires me to stand all day. I have had surgery, however sometimes my body adjusts to wrong positions(knee, hip takes over when it should be back) , will i be able to see weight distribution data for my 8hr workday ?
I want to be more aware of what my body is doing so i can promote recovery.
