Mio Alpha Strapless Heart Rate Monitor

No annoying chest strap: this is the Mio Alpha’s biggest bonus according to gadget-loving fitness fans. Heart rate zone training is becoming more and more popular because it’s one of the most effective ways to track and evaluate progress, and for gym-goers and exercise junkies this no-strap monitor is one of the most accurate tools on the market. The watch provides a continuous heart rate reading by measuring capillary blood flow through “optical sensing.” Numbers are clearly displayed on the watch’s console, but it also provides audio cues to alert exercisers  where they are in relation to their desired zone. $199; mioglobal.com
