Mio ALPHA is the latest brainchild of founder and CEO, Liz Dickinson who has always strived to make heart rate training accessible in a form factor that works for athletes at all levels. Mio ALPHA is the first and only sport watch to provide continuous, accurate heart rate monitoring at performance levels - without a chest strap. Its launch generated buzz and industry recognition, including the CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award. Mio ALPHA's ability to connect via Bluetooth® Smart to apps and devices opens the door to a wealth of personal and social training tools.
When Liz embarked on an ambitious fitness training program back in 1999, she quickly realized heart rate training was the most efficient, effective way to train. But the market only offered chest straps and they felt too uncomfortable. Leveraging her technology and marketing expertise, Liz created MIO: the world's first heart rate monitor sport watch – with no chest strap.
Since then, MIO has continued to deliver breakthrough HR monitoring technology and has grown into a multi-million dollar company with global sales and a team of star performers.
