Here is the next device to be tested, the MIO Link wristband. For the most clueless, it is a pulse meter, and its main differentiating element is that it is not a chest strap as we are used to. The MIO Link measures pulses through a technology, pulse detection with optical sensors. Thanks to an LED (green) light is projected onto the skin, and the optical sensor is able to measure blood flow.

Now begins a stage of tests of the most varied kind, comparing its operation and accuracy with the usual measurement methods and assessing its usefulness for runners.

I've been surrounded by electronic devices of all kinds for more than 25 years. Using them, testing them, taking them apart and dissecting them. Long distance triathlete: I swim, run and cycle for a long time. Maybe too much.

  1. Good morning, I've been reading your analysis for a couple of days and I find them very useful and exhaustive, my congratulations for them. I have owned for years a Suunto T6 and the truth is that it is sufficient for my needs, mainly heart rate monitor, but when I do electro stimulation sessions with the vest, I can not use the chest strap, so I have no pulse data. I had considered the option of changing to a watch with optical measurement, but when I saw my link, I wondered about the compatibility with my Suunto T6, as it is already a few years old. Could you tell me if they are compatible. If not, taking into account that I mainly do indoor training and exercise circuits, in addition to EMS sessions, which heart rate monitor would you recommend? Thank you very much.
