Wearable devices are ubiquitous among runners, coaches, and clinicians with an ever-increasing number of devices coming on the market. In place of gold standard measures in the laboratory, these devices attempt to provide a surrogate means to track running biomechanics outdoors. This review provides an update on recent literature in the field of wearable devices in runners, with an emphasis on criterion validity and usefulness in the coaching and rehabilitation of runners. Our review suggests that while enthusiasm should be tempered, there is still much for runners to gain with wearables. Overall, our review finds evidence supporting the use of wearables to improve running performance, track global training loads applied to the runner, and provide real-time feedback on running speed and run cadence. Case studies illustrate the use of wearables for the purposes of performance and rehabilitation.
