The Mio Link is a wristband worn primarily to provide heart rate data to third party products like Polar VR800 (via BlueTooth 4.0), Garmin Edge 810 (via ANT+) and Smartphones APPS like Strava, MapMyRide etc – WITHOUT the need of a chest strap. The Mio Link picks up your heart rate DIRECTLY from the blood pump detected in the wrist. If you’re not such a fan of the chest strap, this strapless, wrist based heart rate sensor is an excellent option. The Mio Link has been reviewed by Tristan Haskins

Mio Link Strapless Heart Rate Monitor

Although we haven’t tested the Mio Link, we have tested the Mio Fuse and we were 97% pleased with the accuracy and convenience of this product. For several decades everyone has been asking for a strapless heart rate monitor, thanks to the clever team at MioGlobal, we now have a whole line up of them

If you don’t know Mio, you really should. They are the innovators behind optical heart rate sensors and they have lead the field for several years…. so much so that the Garmin Forerunner 225 has Mio’s HR sensor built-in to the watch … (Garmin now have their own Elevate wrist based system)

Next model UP

The next model up is the Mio Fuse (or the Velo). The Velo is the same as the Link but it additionally collects bike speed and pedal cadence sensor from other third party sensors installed on the bike. The Fuse on the other hand adds a display for direct feedback off your wrist. The Fuse also includes an activity tracker with GOAL BAR to show your progression to achieving your daily steps/activity target. The Mio Fuse is one of our personal favourites for many reasons.. please read the Fuse review for more details

A Brief History…

It all started in 1996. As a sports science student I wanted to promote the use of Heart Rate Monitors in exercise. The business went online in 1999. In 14 years we sold HRM's to over 300,000 customers.

After a short retail back we're now back with the new online store selling ONLY Polar. We still offer impartial advice & test other heart rate monitor brands. Our aim however, is to introduce you to Polar's products as an alternative to Garmin, Fitbit, Suunto or TomTom.
