MIO Link

Looking for an easy-to-use heart-rate monitor that won't cost the earth? Then look no further

With seemingly the whole world focused on GPS and wondering how fast and far they go on every single run, MIO’s new LINK is a return to heart-rate training – and all the better for it. Essentially it provides continuous heart-rate data connected wirelessly to mobile fitness apps and sports devices. You can’t actually see your heart-rate on the LINK; instead a flashing sequence of coloured lights lets you know what band you’re training in eg yellow for aerobic fitness and red for peak performance. You can then analyse your data via the MIO app (or any number of training apps). It is simple to set up and use and can even pair with other hardware (a GPS watch for example).
