Mio LINK gives runners and cyclists all of the benefits of heart training without the need for an uncomfortable chest strap. Available at the incredible price of only $99 USD, Mio LINK with Bluetooth® Smart (4.0) and ANT+ transmits heart rate data to popular fitness apps, select GPS watches, cycle computers and other sport devices. Mio LINK features colored LEDs that signal the athlete's heart rate zones as he or she is wearing it during a workout.

"Chest-worn heart rate monitors are becoming more and more obsolete," said CEO of Mio Global, Liz Dickinson. "Consumers are turning to Mio for accurate heart rate monitoring technology that can be worn comfortably on the wrist. The Mio LINK is our latest exciting new product, making accurate heart rate training affordable and accessible to athletes of all levels."

Mio Continuous Technology is featured in both the new Mio LINK, as well as the award-winning Mio ALPHA. This patented technology reads EKG-accurate heart rate data accurately at any speed. LEDs are integrated into the back plate of the wristband or watch, shining light into the skin, which then enables the electro-optical cell to detect the pulsing volume of blood flow measuring the heart rate in real time. Sophisticated algorithms are applied to the pulse signal to accurately track the heart rate compensating for the disturbance of other signals generated by movement.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
