It’s Meaningful: Other metrics such as steps provide limited insights into physical activity, as not all steps are created equal, and not all exercise involves steps. The most accurate way to assess the health benefits from activity is to analyze an individual’s heart rate data.
It’s Simple: The goal is to maintain a minimum score of 100 pai for maximum health benefits. pai makes sense of heart rate data.
It’s Personal: pai is calculated based on age, gender, resting heart rate and maximum heart rate. It is a personalized experience that makes the 100 pai goal and all pai calculations customized and accurate for each individual.
It’s Scientific: The Mio pai algorithm is founded upon data collected from the Hunt Health Study over a 20-year period involving 60,000 participants conducted by the Nobel Prize-winning Faculty of Medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

1) NO CHEST STRAP!
2) works reasonably well for running, walking and cycling activities
3) charging and battery life are good
4) Mio Go app enables setting parameters for the watch and goal HR zones
1) DOES NOT WORK when my arm gets sweaty during metabolic workouts (HR readings as low as 34 when manual pulse is easily 150)
2) The apps generally stink
3) Bulky and awkward wearing location on forearm
There are 2 apps for use with the device: The MIO Go app and the Fit trip app. Both sync with the device but neither are particularly good apps. Fit trip may be OK for premium.
I have previously used Map my run which doesn't work with this device. It may have in the past before Underarmor bought the app suite. Wahoo app works with it although the functionality of this app is basic. Endomondo worked well with it but I am not sure it will continue to since Underarmor bought this app suite as well. Also a premium app fee is necessary for the HR monitor capability. All apps are geared to run and cycling. None are really geared for gym-based workouts.
Overall, I would not buy this again. Running and cycling are not my main activities and this just doesn't work when your arm sweats.
There are plenty of devices out there that can be used to track your heart rate outside of the water, but this one of just a few that can track your heat rate in the water, under the right conditions, so it's pretty unique from that standpoint.
