Among hundreds of watches, wrist bands we tested for Sumondo App. Mio Alpha 2 suits the best from the list of existing watches and wrist bands. If you’re really into heart rate training, the Mio Alpha 2 offers a very accurate sensor, comfortable design, and an informative app to go along with it. This watch captures your rate more quickly than any fitness tracker we have used, and it maintains that signal throughout even the most rigorous workouts.
However, there’s no denying that the price for Alpha 2 is limiting. The similarly priced but less comfortable Microsoft Band offers daily activity monitoring, GPS tracking and a slew of workout programs you can download from the app to follow along with the band, as well as smartphone notifications. But for those who want a dedicated workout watch that puts heart rate first for training and also wants to track their stress, the Mio Alpha 2 is a solid option.
