Mio Global Receives Envisioneering's Innovation and Design Award at CES

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mio Global, makers of the Mio ALPHA and Mio LINK, today announced it has been chosen to receive an Envisioneering and Showstoppers Innovation and Design Award for its continuous, wrist-worn heart rate monitoring technology. Announced on January 7th at CES, the Mio LINK uses the same patented electro-optical cell technology as featured in the award-winning Mio ALPHA heart rate sport watch.


Envisioneering's Innovation and Design Awards recognize products that are better, faster, lighter, more stylish, cooler, or greener than everything else out there. Inventors, technologists, psychologists, marketers, industrial designers and researchers at The Envisioneering Group review each product to determine which are the most innovative.

"This year's CES has been one to remember," said CEO of Mio, Liz Dickinson. "Across the board, innovative new devices and products have been revealed, and it's truly an honor to be a significant part of driving that innovation. The new Mio LINK is one of a kind—we're bringing accurate continuous heart rate monitoring that replaces chest straps to consumers at an affordable price."

The new Mio LINK transmits data using Bluetooth® Smart (4.0) to connect to fitness apps including the new Mio GO app, and using ANT+ to connect to sport devices. By connecting Mio LINK or Mio ALPHA to the new Mio GO app, the user's heart rate data drives the interactive experience, and the effort and difficulty of the terrain are reflected in the speed of the training video.

According to its website, Envisioneering is world-renowned for its objective assessment of new technologies, product and services embodiments, and the talents who drive them to market. Mio ALPHA was also recognized last year as a Health and Fitness honoree of the CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering. Mio continues to expand its line of wrist-based heart rate monitors and sport watches with the launch of Mio LINK and the introduction of its ecosystem including the mobile app Mio GO.

For more information about Mio GO and Mio LINK, visit the Mio Global website at Starting in March 2014, the Mio LINK will be available for purchase and the Mio GO app will be available for download for iPads/iPhones from the iTunes app store. Mio Global will be available for stop-bys and meetings during CES at booth #26715 in LVCC South Hall 2. For more information about Mio's participation at CES, visit
