Gear Review: Jarv\iGotU POD-30 Foot pod

This is a pretty simple review, which I'm sharing so no one else has to make the same mistake I did. I bought this
from Amazon.

It's *supposed* to be a stride sensor that transmits bluetooth smart data. It pairs with the iPhone, and with my Ambit3, but it transmitted zero data. I changed the battery, and alas, still nothing. I changed the orientation in all imaginable ways, nothing. Calibrated it with the iPhone app. Nothing. It didn't work with the iPhone app either. Nothing. So don't be tricked, it's certainly low cost, but it's a $25 hunk of plastic with a battery in it. Bummer!
