The Mio ALPHA 2 heart rate sport watch features Mio's award winning, patented optical heart rate sensor, as well as an internal accelerometer for pace, speed and distance measurements without the need for a smartphone connection or a chest strap. ALPHA 2 uses Bluetooth Smart (4.0) to connect to the Mio GO app, as well as many other popular iPhone and Android fitness apps. Additionally, the Mio ALPHA 2 provides accurate calorie burn estimates based on heart rate and can store up to 25 hours of workout data.

Mio ALPHA 2 Punch is now available at select retailers and at mioglobal.com. The ALPHA 2 makes the perfect gift for fitness-oriented women who want to closely monitor their body's response to exercise, track progress and train at the appropriate intensity to see long-term benefits.

"As the popularity of wearables continues to surge, so does the demand for fashionable, accessory-like items such as the Mio ALPHA 2 in our newest Punch color," said Liz Dickinson, CEO of Mio Global. "The ALPHA 2 combines the best of both worlds—our award-winning heart rate monitoring technology and an internal accelerometer that measures speed, pace and distance — but at the same time adds a fun, fresh pop of color to the wearer's wrist."

The Mio ALPHA 2, Mio FUSE, Mio LINK and Mio VELO all feature the company's award-winning optical, EKG-accurate heart rate technology that is designed for fitness-minded consumers who need a heart rate monitor that stands up to their active lifestyles.
