Running is one of them activities which is easy to start, but even easier to give up! ‘With’ is a running accessory that aims to stop this from happening by encouraging the user to share their goal distance with a partner.
Running with a friend can help a person feel more energetic and make their goals more achievable. When their partner begins their run their device will begin to flicker, this flicker will turn to a blue light if they begin to race, really turning up the competition!
The ergonomic and sleek form offers a physical benefit to the user; gripping the device in their hand as they run can increase both their endurance and concentration levels. Integrated into the device is a ‘voice call’ function to help them stay connected with their partner and give the sense that they are running right there, next to them.
