"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."
