The conceptual Nike Baton is a different kind of athletic training device for runners who are looking to get started with the sport without the need for traditional wearables. The device is inspired by a running baton and works to give continuous feedback to the user in the form of small vibrations that will help them to fine-tune their performance. This is a more beginner-friendly functionality in comparison to wearables on the market that will often only provide intermittent feedback.
The conceptual Nike Baton is the design work of Byeongjun Kim and features a built-in dial that will enable users to quickly set up the unit for tracking. The handheld design could also help runners to be more mindful of their form and accelerate their development.
