The Rundown – Back in Action

Vita Train For Life | September 7, 2016 | Allie Burdick
I mentioned previously that I would be testing the Lumo Run wearable device on my runs and I have now done several. The thing I love most is that I just clip it on the back of my shorts and go. I don’t even have to turn the thing on! It’s smart enough to sense when you start running and it automatically begins collecting data.

Lumo Lift Review – Your Secret Weapon Towards Better Health

Appcessories | August 18, 2016 | Max, Senior Editor
Lumo lift is the first ever wearable device designed to monitor posture. It all started a few years ago as a Kickstarter campaign created by a trio of Stanford University Students: an engineer, a physician and an entrepreneur under company name Lumo Bodytech Inc. Like every exciting and promising campaign in the crowdfunding website, the project had garnered more than twice its funding goal by the time the first batch of products had started shipping to the initial backers.

5 Technologies That Allow You to Obsessively Track Your Health

Everup | August 8, 2016 | Wendy Rose Gould
Here’s another piece of advice you probably get all the time: stop slouching! But even if you’re aware of that rule, and even if you try your best to sit up straight, old habits die hard. And really, even if you’re consciously aware of your posture, that heightened awareness dissipates the longer you’re in front of a computer or the deeper you get sucked into your latest Netflix obsession.

Ars Technica | August 6, 2016 | Valentina Palladino
As a device, Lumo Run is well-made, simple to use, and easy to wear while running for a long time. Its companion app is thorough in its analysis of your form. While the voice coach can get a little annoying and the device can be hard to fit into its clip, those are minor issues that are easy to live with if you’re looking for a device that could actually make a lasting change in how you run.

MacWorld | August 1, 2016 | Caitlin McGarry
For a while, fitness companies were all about putting sensors in your clothes to measure everything from your heart rate to the way your foot lands on pavement. But clothes with sensors in them are expensive, which makes them niche products that appeal to only die-hard data nerds.

Lumo Run Sensor Review

Jess Runs Blessed | August 1, 2016 | Jessica Tondre
I definitely recommend this to people who can’t afford a coach or who can’t afford physical therapy and know they suffer with running form issues. Or for the run gear tech lover, the runner analyzing their run data post run for 15 minutes. Those runners will love this and likely fulfill the improved running form, improved running result promise Lumo puts on the outside of their box.

Lumo Run Gives You Feedback on Your Running Form In Real Time

Lifehacker | August 1, 2016 | Beth Skwarecki
The Lumo Run costs $99 as the clip-on version, or $199 built into a pair of shorts or capris. (The sensor is machine washable.) It’s probably overkill for the casual runner, but if you’re serious enough about your form that you’d consider paying a coach, the Lumo Run might be a tool that is worth it.

Review Lumo Run Sensor and App: Serious Yet Friendly, Real Time, Effective, Run Bio Mechanics Coaching, Insights, and Exercises

RoadTrailRun | August 1, 2016 | Sam Winebaum
Lumo targets the center of your body, the pelvis and hips the area that is the driving engine of running. I think their approach is far more actionable than trying to change foot strike, if this is really even possible for most without dealing with the areas of the body, the “core”, which I think really determine form and running efficiency.
