Mio Products FAQ

Understanding Your Heart Rate

Why should I monitor my heart rate?

Knowing your heart rate is key to managing your weight and achieving your fitness goals. With MIO you can take your heart rate quickly and easily with the simple touch of a button, which means you can use it during a work out to ensure you're exercising efficiently, and throughout the day to monitor your stress levels.

By monitoring your heart rate during exercise, you can maximize your workouts. Your heart rate measures your intensity level, and by monitoring it you'll know exactly when to increase or decrease your intensity so that you can exercise safely and efficiently while achieving the fitness results you desire. Using MIO during exercise will therefore ensure that you exercise at an appropriate level of intensity and make the most of your workout time.

It is also beneficial to measure your heart rate throughout the day. Because MIO does not require you to wear an uncomfortable chest-strap, it has never been easier to take a medically accurate heart rate anytime you want it! This can provide reassurance to cardiac patients and others interested in all-day monitoring.

MIO also provides biofeedback, which is useful for stress reduction. By using MIO you can see how your heart rate varies throughout the day and how you respond to stressful situations. Using relaxation techniques such as deep breathing and rest, you can easily learn how to lower and control your heart rate leaving you more calm and focused!

What is the difference between my pulse and heart rate?

Heart rate is based on the number of times your heart contracts in a given period, measured in beats per minute. Your pulse rate is the number of times blood, forced by your contracting heart, surges through and dilates your vessels in a given period.

Why is measuring my heart rate better?

Measuring your heart rate is much more accurate. Also, heart rate monitors are tested for accuracy while pulse monitors are not.

Sometimes, such as with irregular or premature beats, the heart does not send out enough blood to be felt as a pulse, and the pulse rate will differ from the heart rate. Before beginning any fitness program, you should have a complete physical examination and consult your physician about an appropriate heart rate target zone for your fitness level.

What is resting heart rate?

Resting heart rate is just that - the rate of your heart while you are at rest. It is best to measure for your resting heart rate when you are not performing any physical activity. Ideally, this would be immediately after waking up (without an alarm).

Most people have an average resting value of 72 beats per minute. Genetics and other factors play a role, but generally resting heart rate is also a measure of fitness. Those who are well conditioned may have resting heart rate values in the high thirties to low forties. Most values fall between 38 to 78 beats per minute.

What is heart rate recovery?

Heart rate recovery is the best indicator of your fitness level.

With MIO, a recovery test can easily be taken manually. Take your heart rate during activity. Cease activity. Wait 1 minute. Take your heart rate again. The value should drop at least 20 beats per minute. If it does not drop quickly you need to work on your cardio conditioning. The more conditioned you are the faster your heart rate should drop. For more info contact your physician.

What is maximum heart rate?

Your heart has a theoretical maximum value at which during extreme exertion, you approach physical exhaustion. Coming too close to this value is dangerous for those at risk for heart attacks. The percentage of maximum heart rate tells you how close you are to this dangerous value. For most people, exercising within a range between 55% and 75% of maximum will yield the greatest benefit.

All MIO models display your percentage of maximum every time you take a reading, which is personalized based on the personal data you enter into the watch (age, gender, weight, resting heart rate).

To work out efficiently and maximize the results of your fitness program, you should monitor your heart rate regularly to ensure that you are excercising at an appropriate level of maximum heart rate.

**Before beginning any exercise program, please consult with your physician.**
