ARION helps runners improve their technique to run faster, longer and safer using smart insoles and an intelligent coaching AI. Learn more here.
For whom is ARION suitable?
ARION is suitable for runners of all performance levels and ages. However we believe it’s best suited for runners and triathletes looking to improve their technique, distance, speed or reduce their injuries.
Which metrics does ARION measure?
ARION provides a lot of running metrics to coach you on. For a full list of ARION metrics and what they mean, please check this article.
How long does the battery last?
The battery can last up to 7 hours. This does depends on your settings (such as the settings for the LED lights).
Is ARION waterproof?
ARION has been designed to withstand water from rain or the occasional step in a creek, but not for aqua-jogging.
How does the coaching AI work?
The adaptive coaching AI helps you to focus on one aspect of your technique and to reach your goals using real-time audio feedback. Learn more here.
How future-proof is ARION?
ARION is future-proofed with electronics and sensors, which we’re able to utilize further with free software upgrades through the ARION app. This means we'll be able to release new features even after you've purchased your ARION.
What’s included in an ARION pack?
With the ARION pack you will receive two smart insoles, two footpods and an ARION charger (+ micro-USB cable). You'll be able to measure both your feet at the same time. You have the option to either order a system with or without GPS. If you'd like to run without your phone, choose the version with GPS.
The ARION app can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android.
Can I use the insoles independently?
An ARION insole needs to be connected to ARION footpod in order to record any data. An ARION pack includes both insoles and footpods, but additional insoles can also be purchased (for example to use in different pairs of shoes). ARION footpods and insoles are all interchangeable.
How long will the insoles last?
The sensors will last as long as the running shoe itself. The foam could show signs of wear and tear, however the actual measurements of the insole sensors are not affected. The insoles are under warranty for 1.000 km or 1 year in case they are no longer functional. More details
How should I clean the insoles?
Use a damp cloth to clean the devices. Do not use harsh chemicals or detergents for cleaning purposes, nor put them in the washing machine or under abundant water. If your ARION system has been used in damp conditions, let them dry naturally in a well aired place. Do not use heating or drying equipment.
Is there also a web dashboard available?
Yes! The ARION dashboard gives you powerful insights to keep track of your performance and running technique progress and allows you to dive deep into your running data.
Can I run without my smartphone?
This feature is being beta tested over the summer and expected as a full release late 2019.
Do you have smartwatch compatibilities?
