Mio is a brand that we are familiar with because we reviewed the Mio Alpha strapless heart rate monitor on our sister site Mtbr.com a while back. At Interbike, Mio was showing their latest product called the Velo. The Velo is a wristband for cyclists that measures heart rate continously with EKG accuracy and requires no chest strap.
The Velo received info from any ANT+ bike sensors and converts it to Bluetooth. Then it transmits that data along with your heart rate to your smart phone (or other Bluetooth Smart 4.0 device). This allows you to feed in data like cadence, speed and other factors.
Suggested retail price is $129 and will be available in November.
