The Mio Alpha Strapless Heart-Rate Monitor Watch marks a real breakthrough in heart-rate monitor technology because you can simply wear it on its own on your wrist without the need for the usual separate, fiddly and sometimes uncomfortable heart-rate chest belt or even a finger pad to record your pulse.
The Mio Alpha Strapless HRM is a high-tech continuous heart-rate monitor that accurately measures your heart rate during physical workouts including running and walking. It has been tested to be electro-cardiograph accurate at running speeds of up to 20 km/hour (12 mph).
The revolutionary Mio Alpha uses an electro-optical cell sensor and two lights located at the back of the watch to measure the pulse with the watch worn in the normal position. The signal is then converted by the Mio Alpha's sophisticated processor into easy-to-read information.
The Mio Alpha Strapless HRM incorporates a motion detector that works with the pulse sensor to filter out any disturbance created by arm movements while walking or running to give a very accurate heart rate even during intense physical activities.
The Mio Alpha is simple to work with as it uses just two buttons for you to navigate through the various displays which include continuous heart rate, user-settable heart-rate zones, data review (total exercise time, time spent in zone, average heart rate), stopwatch and time display.
Coloured LED lights keep you in your intended target heart-rate zone.
The ground-breaking Mio Alpha Strapless HRM puts an end to the need to wear what is now an old-technology heart-rate chest strap.
