• Mio introduces new PAI: Personal Activity Intelligence

    Mio’s new app claims that it brings activity IQ to your heart rate that can lengthen your lifespan. Every fitness band collects data, but now Mio gives meaning to the data it collects which can increase your life by up to 10 years.

    Mio claim: ‘ Your heart rate is the single-most accurate reflection of your body’s response to physical activity, which is directly linked to your health. PAI translates your heart rate data and personal profile information into one simple, meaningful metric: Your PAI score.’

    Mio Fuse with new data

    PAI=100. Your goal is to finish the week with a PAI score of over 100 and if you do so your helping to maintain a good health profile and increase your lifespan.

    In order to start using their Personal Activity Intelligence users need to download the PAI app and then use their Mio wearable during a training session. PAI then uses this data to give the user instant feedback and a PAI score.

    What's the score based on? PAI uses your personal profile containing your age, weight, gender, height, maximum heart rate, resting heart rate and feedback from your training to develop your score.

    Is PAI scientific? The algorithms used in PAI are based on activity data from over 60,000 people, collected over a 20 year span

    Pai is simple to use, every activity you do, as long as it raises your heart rate, contributes to your PAI score.

  • Monitor Your Sleep With Mio Fuse

    The final piece of the puzzle has been played. Mio’s latest firmware update allows wearers to monitor their sleep.

    Mio Fuse Sleep Tracking is here

    After installing the new update via the Mio Go app, sleeping tracking is ready and waiting.

    Press and hold both the left and right touch points and you watch your watch will ask “sleep?”, tap to confirm and hit the mattress. Fuse will even display a good night message.

    Fast forward an optimistic 8 hours and when you wake, press and hold the left and right touch points once more until Fuse asks “wake?”, confirm to collect your morning greeting and return to all-day mode.

    The app will then display the level of your sleep (awake/light/deep), its duration and sleep efficiency. A great tool for all athletes to monitor as sufficient sleep is so vital for recovery.

    So who’s itching to catch some ZZZs now and give it a go? But remember, no snoozing in the office!
