The best solution to any problem is always simple yet elegant, basic yet modern. If you’re a fitness buff who’s having trouble reaching and maintaining your workout goals consistently, it’s time to consider stepping up your technology game with a game changing device that thousands of dedicated physical fitness fans are already implementing. Are you ready to hear about it? In other words, are you ready to take the next step into your workout’s future?
You’ll push harder with an accurate heart rate read.
A wearable helps you keep track of pulse, hydration, temperature, and many other variables that can have an effect on your workout. And granted, it’s always a good idea to take supplements for weight loss management like grapefruit seed essential oil. But you can’t keep track of everything all the time -- that would require wearing about a dozen different wearables and get cross-eyed trying to look at them all the time while jogging or weight lifting or whatever. Not practical.
But the Mio SLICE is being tested right now as one of the first wearables that’s exclusively about the heart rate, at all times. It uses a PAI, Personal Activity Intelligence, as an algorithm which assigns a specific number to your activity intensity. For maximum fitness, you’ll want to set it to score one-hundred or over for a one week period.
As an example, you go on a ninety minute walk with a workout buddy. Doing this, you will most likely meet or even exceed your daily ten thousand step goal, but what about your heart rate? That didn’t go up much, so you only get a measly three points on your PAI. That’s not how you’re going to get buff, and your Mio SLICE is letting you know right up front about it.
(Note: Mio Slice is rated at three ATM, which is not officially waterproof -- so don’t take it swimming. However, the company has a reputation for replacing their product if it fails during a heavy rain.)
With your PAI score in front of you at all times, you’ll quickly become motivated to cut out all leisurely activities that mimic a hard workout. You need to raise your heartrate consistently, so, for instance, you could do a sixty minute minimum paces workout on a stairmaster followed by the elliptical equipment to earn a solid thirty PAI points. Do that, or its equivalent, each day, and you’ve got a totally weekly PAI score above one hundred -- just what you aimed for in the first place!
Flexibility is good
But what if you’re trapped in conferences all day Tuesday; can you still make your ten thousand step daily goal? Nope, not gonna happen. But with your PAI system if you have to forego a day of exercise you just work a little harder and longer the rest of the week to make it up. That’s called ‘flexibility’, and it’s a good thing for dedicated workout-aholics.
There’s still working to get some of the bugs out of the Mio Slice. It’s hard to see the screen in direct or bright sunlight, and battery life is not up to par yet. But these are minor glitches on the road to the perfect workout that will keep you buff, beautiful, and boastful about it -- once you have your Mio Slice on your wrist!
