What kinds of activities are Mio products designed for?

Mio products use an optical sensor to monitor the volume of blood in your veins. Our algorithms are best designed for rhythmic activities such as cycling and running and can provide an EKG-accurate heart rate signal.

For activities with erratic arm motions such as tennis, boxing, or plyometrics, it is beneficial to monitor your heart rate signals during the recovery period.

To ensure the best accuracy try the following tips:

  • move your Mio device further up your arm so it is isolated from wrist movements
  • ensure your Mio device has a snug fit on your arm so it doesn’t shift around during the activity.
  • try wearing your Mio device with the sensor on the underside of your forearm.
