GETTING YOUR HEART RATE
You can get your real-time heart rate when you put Mio LINK in Heart Rate (HR) Mode. You
must be wearing the LINK to obtain an accurate heart rate reading. The heart rate may take
a few seconds to Button LED Optical Sensor USB Connector Charging Pins Charging Pins
stabilize while your body is adjusting to the physical activity; we recommend activating Heart
Rate Mode during the warm up stage of your workout.
Turning On HR Mode
1. While standing still, press and hold the Button until the LED lights up. The color
of tis LED is an indicator of the battery level. (See Charging The Battery for more
information).
2. Mio LINK will immediately begin searching for your HR, indicated by the pulsing LED
light.
3. Hold your arm still until the LED blinks in a distinctively slower pattern. This means the
LINK has found your heart rate. The LED color at this point is an indicator for the HR
zone. For more details, please refer to Heart Rate Zones.
If no valid heart rate signal is found within the initial 2 minutes, the LED will light up in red for 2
seconds, then the LINK will automatically leave Heart Rate Mode and turn off.
Please refer to Troubleshooting.

HEART RATE ZONES
Your target heart rate (HR) zone consists of your upper HR limit and your lower HR limit. These
limits are usually a percentage of your maximal heart rate (MHR). If you do not know your
MHR or upper and lower HR limits, you can check with your doctor, or use this following MHR
calculation method as guidance:
MHR = 208 – ( 0.7 x Age )
Using Heart Rate Zones Alerts
Training Zone Mode is the factory default on Mio LINK. To switch to Zone Alert Mode, or to customize
the upper and lower boundaries of each HR zone, please refer to Customizing Heart Rate Zones.
Training Zone Mode (5-Zone)
The LED light will blink slowly to indicate your current HR zone. You can customize the upper
and lower boundaries of each HR zone through the Mio GO app. Please see Customizing
Heart Rate Zones for more details.

USING MIO LINK WITH APPS & DEVICES
Mio LINK can be used as a stand-alone heart rate monitor with heart rate (HR) zone indicator.
You can also transmit your real-time HR data, using ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart technology, to
any compatible smartphones and exercise equipment computers. Connect your Mio LINK
complete list of compatible devices, please visit mioglobal.com/apps.
Compatible devices will only capture LINK’s HR data in real-time. This requires you to have the
device with you while you are tracking your heart rate.
WORKING WITH A RECEIVING DEVICE
•
•
•
When Mio LINK is in Heart Rate Mode, it will transmit your HR data through Bluetooth
Smart and ANT+ wireless technology simultaneously, allowing Mio LINK to be
discovered from compatible devices.
Wear the receiving device on your arm, in your front pocket, or in front of you on a
belt or bike handlebar. Do not position the device behind you (e.g. in a back pocket or
backpack).
Heart rate calculation of the LINK is not based on instant R-R interval, and will not work
for apps that require heart rate variability (HRV) data.
Tip:
sensors and devices are in the area.
Tips For Pairing
•
•
•
Mio LINK must be in Heart Rate Mode.
Position the receiving device within 3 meters (9 feet) of your LINK.
Stay 10 meters (30 feet) away from other ANT+ or Bluetooth sensors and devices.
PAIRING WITH APPS
1. If you want to pair through ANT+, you will need a device with built-in ANT support, or
an ANT+ dongle (for details, visit http://www.thisisant.com). If you want to pair through
Bluetooth Smart technology, turn on the Bluetooth function of your device.
2. Turn on Heart Rate Mode on your Mio LINK.
3. Open the app that you would like to pair with. Instructions vary for each app, but
typically, you can add or scan for a heart rate sensor within the app’s settings.
