Introducing the MIO Alpha --the World's first heart rate monitor sport watch, with no chest strap!

(The Jackson Five Family Blog received a complimentary product to help facilitate this review. However all opinions are honest and our own!)

For fitness enthusiasts of all levels, the ability to monitor the heart rate and provide precision data in a comfortable and easy way is important. That's why I'm excited to introduce you all to the MIO Alpha by MIO Global --the world's first heart rate monitor sport watch, with no chest strap!

The MIO Alpha is the first and only sport watch that provides continuous, accurate heart rate monitoring at performance levels without the need to wear an uncomfortable chest strap. The watch measures your heart rate and is able to alert you with chimes and  light signals (shown below) to help keep you in your targeted heart rate zone to help you determine how hard, how long and much effort you should put into your workout.

This watch is not only capable of monitoring your heart rate, but it also provides Bluetooth Smart technology so that you can connect to apps and devices for easy tracking of information and it allows you to use social training tools which help track and graph your performance over time.


I really like using the MIO Alpha (and so does my husband!!). It really helps you to achieve your fitness goals if you know you are working out in your targeted heart rate area. It allows you to perform at your best while working out so that you are putting your best effort into it and burning the most calories etc... 

The watch has many other functions as well as monitoring your heart rate. It can be worn and used simply as a watch when you don't need to monitor your heart rate and it has an exercise timer on it which is nice. It also allows you to review data like your total exercise time, your average heart rate and your time in the "zone". We love that it has Bluetooth 4 capabilities so that we can use apps on our iPhones that help track all of our data as well. 

You do have to wear the watch pretty tight so that the sensors on the back can determine your heart rate. I'm not used to wearing a watch so tight, but you get used to it after the first couple of times.

If you're looking for a reliable heart rate monitor that is accurate, easy to use and doesn't require a chest strap, then this is the watch for you!

This would make a wonderful gift for that fitness enthusiast in your life this holiday season as well!

  1. Females brand name game wristwatch is designed in a range of elegant shades and have a more delicate and sensitive overall look, but do not be misled by looks, many of these timepieces are just as strong, resilient and have the same features that are provided in the gents editions of these sports timepieces.

  2. I am thinking to buy the Polar watch and I have a question, does it shows the calories burnt if you don't wear the heart rate monitor strap? I hope it does, as I find them so uncomfortable. I would just need this watch for the gym, for lifting, as I have a Garmin forrunner 110 gps watch for runs. Thank you so much!!!

  3. Stopping by from the Crew to read your great post! We loved this product as well!
