Improved biomechanical data. The Forerunner 630 w/HRM-Run includes a 2nd generation running dynamics heart rate monitor chest strap/sensor. Nike Air Max 2016 Femme The sensor is able to collect data about your stride length and stride frequency. This data can be communicated to the watch for real-time feedback or downloaded post-run. This allows you to get your cadence (steps per minute). Coach Jim Hunt Nike Free 5.0 Womens has long espoused running with a cadence over 180.
