Mio ALPHA 10

The compact cardboard box can be found myself wrist heart rate monitor and charger – nothing more, only what you need for this accessory.

Mio ALPHA 12

Charging takes place by means of a compact dock with a pad and a magnetic mount. This solution is used also because he has a heart rate monitor ALPHA moisture-proof, and it is possible even in the pool, even in the shower.

As the heart rate sensor uses proven technology of the optical observation of contractions of blood vessels with laser illumination, the diodes are used of the visible spectrum is green.

Particularly solid at the clock looks like a bracelet, although the case itself with the face look, no doubt, as a professional accessory – a combination of high-quality rubber, silicone and plastic do their job. The battery housing is ready to feed without the use of ALPHA meter pulse many days in a row, and with the active heart rate monitor – up to 20 hours (although we’ve been running, alas, could not). In addition, in fact, the display for the indication of user activity, including an indication of the upper and lower threshold pulse meets multicolored LED under the display, so skip the peak moment of heart rate, after which it cost to slow down and restore the normal heart rate, the owner ALPHA will not work. Threshold this function is configured by the user, so that we can work out an individual training program.

For controls in Mio ALPHA can take two keys to the right and left of the display, they are responsible for all actions with the settings and control the clock. Well, just a little button, then each of them is responsible for multiple tasks.

Left button – is the inclusion of the clock setting, timer, and the other side features a wrist gadget, the right is responsible for the activation of the actual pulse, the inclusion of Bluetooth to pair with your smartphone and stop the measurement.

Display backlighting in ALPHA, alas, there was no place, so that when a special love for night walks and jogs in a dark park on a moonless night time nor heart to know will not work. On the other hand, the same data can be obtained in an application designed for the iPhone called Mio Go. There you can find a number of training regimes for themselves.

However, if you’re in favor other programs for tracking, then, for example, and Runtastic (albeit in a PRO-version) and RunKeeper with ALPHA interact perfectly.

Among the shortcomings, perhaps worth noting too complicated interaction with hairy surfaces of the upper extremities, especially in the case of sweating, though in such situations ALPHA behaves quite well.


In fact, Mio ALPHA – especially specific device designed primarily for those who are engaged in physical exercises in a professional or even an amateur way, when the value of the heart rate can actually affect the exercise cycle or jog, so as not to cause unnecessary harm. Thus there is no need to install uncomfortable for many heart rate transmitter.

Mio ALPHA 09

And, of course, we should not regard them as “smart clock” – at Mio and did not mean to create the wrist for notification center, so as not to “smear” the functional orientation of such a device. And it is perhaps worth noting as the most correct decision.
