Mio Global has come up with a unique activity tracker based on its very own Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) index. This index makes it different from the regular fitness monitoring approach of using step count or distance tracking.

‘Mio Global company introduces “Mio Slice Activity”, a new wearable activity tracker that displays a Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) score reflecting the body's response to exercise based on heart rate.’

PAI algorithm is based on the HUNT Study, one of the largest health studies ever conducted in history, in which more than 60,000 individuals were closely monitored over 20 years. This score is a personalized reflection of the body's response to physical activity based on heart rate.

By managing the score to 100, one can reduce the risk of heart and lifestyle-related diseases. This index also helps to maximize lifespan. The activity tracker is like a wristband, so it can be easily worn on the wrist. This is the first device that will display a user's PAI score based on all-day heart rate monitoring.

"Even with all the personal data you can collect these days on your health and fitness, until now, there's never been a standard for how active you personally need to be in order to stay healthy. We hope to inspire and educate health-conscious and fitness-minded individuals by offering a new, more personalized metric to achieve goals based on their own unique physiology," said Liz Dickinson, CEO of Mio Global.
