NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - Jul 5, 2016) - Mio Global, known for the most accurate wrist-based heart rate technology, announces at the NSCA National Conference its partnership with FieldWiz, a strategy analysis and physical performance measuring tool for outdoor sports. The FieldWiz tracking device now synchronizes with Mio LINK heart rate + activity tracker, completely eliminating the need for a chest strap.
Mio Global's collaboration with FieldWiz will allow players to track heart rate through a comfortable wristband, while also monitoring distance, speed, and acceleration on the field through FieldWiz's unique GPS tracking technology. This partnership marks a major evolution in field sports, such as lacrosse and soccer, as teams can now easily analyze and compare metrics such as maximum velocity, heart rate, and areas covered on the field (heat-mapping) to optimize training. The combined data can help reduce the risk of injury and streamline overall efficiency. Additionally, both the Mio LINK and FieldWiz devices are water and sport resistant, holding up in extreme training conditions to deliver consistent insights.
"We are excited to partner with FieldWiz to provide an accurate wrist-based wearable as an alternative hardware solution to heart rate monitor chest straps," said Liz Dickinson, Founder and CEO of Mio Global. "By combining Mio Heart Rate Technology with this innovative strategy analysis and physical performance measuring tool, athletes will now be able to train comfortably, while still acquiring the data needed to analyze sessions and improve performance."
Together, Mio Global and FieldWiz will provide outdoor sports teams with the tools needed to create and exceed training goals.
