Mio Alpha

 

The Mio Alpha wristwatch tracks your heart rate and pairs easily with smartphone fitness apps, but needs more features to justify its price.

Attractive design; Easy to pair; Accurate heart rate tracking

Buttons hard to press; Bland display; Doesn't track distance or pace; No alarm clock

For those who find chest straps uncomfortable at best, the Mio Alpha represents a less intrusive method of tracking your heart rate while exercising. At $199, it's a tad pricey for a one-function device -- the $249 Motorola MOTOACTV doesn't track heart...

MIO Alpha BLE

 

Heart rate, as athletes know, indicates fitness and exercise intensity better than most other metrics. Until very recently, the only reliable way to measure heart rate was to wear a chest strap, as I did while testing the Digifit iCardio Multi-Sport...

Reads heart rate without the need for a chest strap. Accurate. Comfortable. Rechargable battery. Waterproof

Somewhat expensive. Chunky. Heart rate is the only personal data measured

For running, cycling, and plenty of other endurance sports, the MIO Alpha BLE represents a major upgrade in comfort and ease-of-use in heart rate monitors, but it's also quite expensive in comparison.

Mio Alpha Watch

 

This is not a GPS unit as some may think but a watch, a rather special watch that not only tells the time but can also give you your pulse rate at any time by the simple press of a button, no chest band just wear the watch on your wrist.

This was one of a few items I was interested in at a recent distributor event held at the London Film Museum that is in County Hall on the side of the river Thames. It was the first item I saw as it was just inside the door and by the time I had been...
