MIO Alpha is the world’s first strapless, continuous heart rate sport watch that's as accurate as a chest strap at performance speeds — even while running over 14mph! Totally unobtrusive, MIO Alpha delivers maximum performance in ultimate comfort.
Before Alpha, the most common way to get an accurate heart rate continuously while exercising was to wear a strap around your chest. With Alpha’s innovative technology, the world of heart rate monitoring will be changed forever!
LED lights and an electro-optical cell “sense” the volume of blood under the skin. From there, sophisticated algorithms are applied to the pulse signal so that the heart’s true rhythm can be detected, even while running at performance speeds.
Connect your MIO Alpha with your iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S to get added data such as speed, distance, pace & GPS. MIO Alpha uses Bluetooth Smart (4.0) technology to connect with compatible devices, and currently there are a wide range of compatible iOS fitness apps available such as Endomondo, MapMyRun, MapMyRide, miCoach, RunKeeper, Strava and Wahoo Fitness.
