Frequently Asked Questions

When will my pre-order ship?
Lumo Run products are scheduled to start shipping in July 2016.

What is Lumo Run?
Lumo Run is a revolutionary technology package in a pair of smart shorts that measure, track and coach you on your running form to improve your performance. Lumo Run tracks key running metrics including cadence, bounce, stride length, ground contact time, braking, pelvic tilt, pelvic drop and pelvic rotation to measure efficiency, performance and form of the runner. Using these metrics, Lumo Run offers run summaries for each run through the Lumo Run app, auditory coaching via headphones during the run, and personalized coaching tips to help the runner improve form for better performance and injury prevention.

How does Lumo Run work?
Lumo Run is a pair of smart running shorts with a sensor in the waistband that connect with your smartphone. Lumo Run uses a 9-axis IMU to record your biomechanical movement. This enables you to get real-time feedback in the form of audio coaching from your earbuds.

Do I need to run with my phone for Lumo Run to work?
Your Lumo Run shorts and sensor will still capture all of your running biomechanics even if you choose to run without your phone. You can sync your run data to the app after your run to get your post-run summary. However, insights like routes, pace and distance, as well as the auditory coaching cue feature requires you to run with your phone and headphones.

Is the sensor waterproof?
Yes, the Lumo Run sensor is waterproof and machine washable (no tumble dry). The Lumo Run shorts are also machine washable, though we recommend hang drying them.

Can you use the sensor in other pants?
Yes, the Lumo Run shorts and capris have a built-in pocket in the waistband designed specifically for the sensor. However all Lumo Run orders come with an attachable clip that allows you to wear the Lumo Run sensor on any garment of your choice.
