New fitness trackers aim to delve deeper into data

A new pair of fitness tracking devices from heart rate monitor specialist Mio Global have been designed to set pulses racing by offering unprecedented levels of accuracy.

Launched this month, the Mio Fuse (used for general exercise) and Mio Velo (designed for cyclists and triathletes) feature patented Mio Global electro-optical cell sensor technology, which measures the volume of blood under the skin. Sophisticated algorithms are applied to detect the heart’s true rhythm throughout intense workouts, with a 0.99 correlation to EKG in laboratory testing meaning it matches or outperforms the top heart rate monitors.

“With all-day activity tracking and strapless heart rate monitoring, users can get a more accurate record of how many calories they’ve burnt, how hard they’ve pushed during workouts and how their body is responding with the Mio Fuse,” Mio Global CEO Liz Dickinson told Health Club Management. “It’s data that no single device on the market today has been able to provide.”

Both devices are wristbands that are water resistant to 30m, enabling workouts to be monitored in all types of conditions. They are also compatible with a range of third party apps to give users control over how to track and store their workouts.

The Mio Fuse wristband (£130) provides a daily assessment of heart rate, step count, distance travelled, speed, pace and calorie burn. When synced with the Mio Go app, Fuse allows users to set their heart rate zones, choose preferred device settings, customise display screens and automatically sync data. They can also monitor their progress towards a daily step, distance, or calorie burn goal by checking their stats displayed on the device itself, or by using Mio Go.

Meanwhile, the cycle-focused Mio Velo (£109) can sync with a smartphone to provide the capabilities of a powerful bike computer. It has five customisable heart rate zones and a six-colour LED light, which shows at a glance what zone is being worked in, thus users can adjust their workout intensity as required to hit their training goals. It can also work with other popular cycling apps, sending your heart rate data to platforms including Strava, Wahoo, Cyclemeter, Endomondo and MapMyRide.
