Back in January this year at the CES, Mio Global announced their newest Mio SLICE ($129.95) heart rate fitness tracker and hinted at the availability of the device in the later half of 2016. Interested parties like me waited, pinned and sent query after query to no avail. Until today.
It’s a mere 10 days before the end of this year and Mio Global finally provided an update regarding their wearable.
The Mio SLICE heart rate activity tracker captures your all day heart rate data and translate it into your PAI score. The PAI is proprietary algorithm based on the Hunt study, an population based health study from Norway.
It is individualised and the science behind PAI is robust. Execution is easy to follow for most people; maintain 100 PAI points for the past 7 days. The benefits? The PAI app is scientifically proven to help you maximize your longevity and reduce the risk of lifestyle-related diseases.
The water resistant Mio SLICE fitness wearable is also an all day activity tracker with smart notification capabilities. There’s no word on whether the device will be both ANT+ and Bluetooth enabled.
Mio SLICE Features:
- Personal Activity Intelligence—view your PAI score directly on the SLICE
- Accurate, continuous all-day heart rate monitoring
- Track steps, distance, and calories burned
- Sleep tracking and resting heart rate
- Smartphone notifications
- Water resistant up to 30 meters/100 feet/3 ATM
- 5 days of battery life
- One week of activity memory
- Wireless connectivity to Mio PAI app and other popular fitness apps
The Mio SLICE heart rate activity tracker is available in 4 colours (Black, Navy, Sienna, Stone) and 2 sizes. (S/L)
Mio Global will begin official sales of the Mio SLICE heart rate activity tracker in February 2017 and early access members who have indicated interest can purchase the Mio SLICE at 20% off retail price.
Official partner Brookstone has already begun taking pre-orders for the Mio wearable with shipping expected on 13th January 2017.
