What Other People Say About the Meideal M50 Digital Metronome
“I use this to monitor my stride rate during training. It really lets me know when my stride rate is changing, and has been very helpful in my efforts to increase my stride rate. It is very easy to change the beat rate and to turn it on and off while I am running. It also survived when I dropped it onto asphalt pavement while running.” by John T

“I wanted this solely for running, and it does everything I wanted. Very light weight, seems reasonably sweat proof. An incredible bargain for the price.” by Paul (Phoenix, AZ)

“This little gadget helps me with my running stride with the guidance of my physical therapist. It works great and was an inexpensive but necessary investment in my health.” By Jada Bell (Jacksonville, NC United States)

“I wanted to run at a specific foot pace and this did the job in the sunshine, in the rain, while being sweated upon, etc….. Buy it.” By E. Phillips (Tampa, FL)
