RECORD YOUR RUN

Under Armour has entered the high-tech shoe business with the launch of the SpeedForm® Gemini 2 Record Equipped to help you track the data you need on your runs. Through a sensor embedded into the shoe data such as time, distance, and pace can be displayed to a watch or phone in real-time, synced to the Under Armour Record App, or synced later if you choose to run without a device. The UA SpeedForm® Gemini 2 RE is designed for neutral runners and aside from the embedded sensor, is the same shoe as the Under Armour SpeedForm® Gemini.  

The UA SpeedForm® Gemini 2 RE is available exclusively in the Atlanta area at the following Big Peach Running Co. locations - Alpharetta, Brookhaven, Kennesaw, Marietta & Suwanee. Read more about this hi-tech shoe from Under Armour and all the features here
