Mio FUSE Device Combines Optical Heart Rate Technology with All-Day Activity Tracking

Mio Global today announced the release of the newest product in its lineup of chest strap-free performance heart rate monitoring devices, Mio FUSE. FUSE combines Mio's EKG-accurate optical heart rate technology with a built-in accelerometer to provide heart rate, step count, distance, pace, and calorie burn, all from a single wristband.

Mio Global will be unveiling the FUSE at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah, from August 6 through 9 in booth PV2150. Mio is the Official Heart Rate Sport Monitor of Outdoor Retailer and The Open Air Demo, and their award-winning Continuous Technology will be available for demo on Tuesday, August 5 at the Open Air Demo as well as at the start line of the OR Ragnar Relay Challenge, a spirited 9-mile relay race on Friday, August 8.

"Our customers are athletes who know that performance isn't determined just in time they spend working out—it's the result of exertion and recovery throughout the entire day, week, month, and year," said Liz Dickinson, CEO of Mio Global. "By combining our award-winning optical heart rate technology with all-day activity tracking, Mio provides a more comprehensive look at overall fitness than any other product on the market."

Mio FUSE transmits heart rate data via Bluetooth® Smart 4.0 and ANT+, allowing users to pair their device with the performance-tracking apps popular among runners, cyclists, and other athletes. Its interoperability features set Mio FUSE apart from other sport devices tied to a closed manufacturer's protocol.

Both performance athletes and health conscious consumers alike can utilize the water-resistant Mio FUSE for all-day tracking. The device offers two modes—all day mode and workout mode—so users can capture data while exercising as well as during the rest of their day, capturing all physical activity from morning to night.
