First impressions - Wow! It works! the thing on my wrist instantly pairs with my Polar V800 watch - and I don't have to wear an annoying chest strap!
After some (a couple of weeks usage) -
- Right... better charge it ready for tomorrow's run... don't want it running out of battery (again!)
- Will you PLEASE find/lock onto my heart rate? it's like waiting for satellite signal on an original Garmin forerunner!
- Okay fine... I'll try it on the underside of my forearm like it suggests and see if that works any better... (several minutes later) ... sod it, I'll try it the 'normal' way again
- Christ... how tight do I need to have it for it to pick up my HR?
- Woohooo - It's finally locked on to my HR... hang on... why's it reading about 70bpm too high?
Basically, when it works, it's fantastic - but it doens't always work - it's frustrating when you're in a rush, and even more frustrating when everything seems to be working okay, then you get back from your run to find that the HR has spiked for a period for no good reason showing you hit 110% of MaxHR on your easy run. Not very useful if you actually use HR info in your training analysis.
I'll be giving it another week or two before deciding whether to send it back. Having read other reviews I'm now paranoid about how long the unit will last as I'm charging it after every run anyway to ensure battery doesn't run out mid run.
The MIO arrived a day early. Packaging perfect. The instructions were easy to follow. The MIO is easy to use. It pairs immediately with the four apps that I already had (so ignored the MIO app). I then checked the accuracy of the beat, with my own finger on my pulse, and compared with the other apps. All were pretty close. (by contrast the pulse meter on my treadmill was totally useless). I place my iPhone of the treadmill consul, turn on iRunner, and can see my heart rate while I work up to a sprint and a sweat! Perfectly efficient, and perfect for my needs.
Previously, i had tried the Suunto chest strap (twice) which did not link to my phone, so returned to Amazon (both). However, I will be keeping the MIO. NB. I bought a small/medium strap. I am medium build (size 15.5" collar). The strap fits with little to spare. The bigger one may be better for most medium sized and larger wrists. It is very comfortable, and secure. I can recommend this product.
I had more or less given up with Heart Rate Monitors as every one I have ever used, even from Garmin, was fiddly to setup and used and ultimately unreliable.
The Mio Link is fitted to the wrist and by measuring the light transmission and reflection of the capillary blood flow with powerful LED's on the underside of the strap. This is not new and I have used similar HRM's from Scosche, such as the iPhone Pulse Monitor RHYTHM in the past but they proved to be even more flaky and unreliable than chest strap HRMs. One claim to fame of the Mio Link is that it will connect simultaneously to both ANT+ and Bluetooth 4 devices. So it will send signals to both my ANT+ Garmin watch and my phone over Bluetooth 4.
You have to remember that this is essentially a Heart Rate Monitor and not a fitness tracker. It streams data from it's sensor to your connected device and that is about it. It does not have any on board memory and cannot store data for later use, the only display it has is a single multi coloured LED that indicates battery condition and which heart rate zone you are in during training.Read more ›
