The history of MIO
MIO was set up in 1999 by Liz Dickinson (founder and executive), who quickly realized that training based on heart rate was the most efficient way to train. But the only available devices on the market were chest bands, which were a nuisance to wear during training. So, using her experience in technology and the market, Liz created MIO, the first sports watch in the world which measured heart rate without a chest belt.
Since then, MIO has become a prestigious brand with global sales and a team of professionals who continue to offer the latest technology for monitoring heart rate.
