You're probably wondering what could make me outright say I am ditching my heart-rate strap, and also why I am giving this 4 instead of 5 stars with such a statement. To give some background, I started running in April 2013, so it's been just over a year (this review is written in April of 2014). I have used my Garmin Forerunner 410 for every run, uploading training plans to get me ready for my first 5k last May, 10k in July, Half Marathon in October, and ultimately leading up to my first Marathon in April 2014, finishing in 3:55. So I still consider myself a relative newbie, but I have been figuring out what works and what doesn't.
I was using the Garmin HRM2 chest strap for awhile, but found that on dry days I would get errant readings for the first 1-2 miles of my run until I started to sweat. The Garmin HRM3 was a bit better, but it's still not the most comfortable to wear a strap around your chest, and I still had issues with accuracy when I wasn't soaked in sweat...
Second Update July 18, 2014 - after a few more months running with the Mio, there are a few more details that I can report with absolute certainty.
First - Moving the band up my arm (say 2" closer to my elbow than where I wear my watch) makes a big difference in accuracy. However, drop-outs still do occur with some regularity. There's no other way to explain consistent heart beat rates suddenly dropping by 20 BPM for a minute or two, and then jumping back up to where they are supposed to be.
Second - The yellow, low battery, warning light that is supposed to come on at the 30% (or less) charge level has proven somewhat unreliable. By my calculations (in review below), it should show when you turn the unit on and have roughly 2 and a half hours charge or less. So when I turn it on - and see no yellow light - I think I'm good to go for a two hour run. So it's disappointing when 3/4 into the run the unit runs out of power.
I pre-ordered the device with very high hopes I could ditch my old heart rate strap(s). Over the years I've been through various big name soft strap models -- each seems to die with erratic static induced spikes eventually! I think I tried 4 different manufacturers straps until I went back to the older rubber / plastic style chest strap!
After receiving the LINK I paired it to my phone through BT and also to several of my ANT+ devices -- FR 610, Edge 800, vivofit, for example. Recording of data with any of these devices was really no problem.
Why such a bad rating then?!
Very often my numbers don't make sense. With enough HR recording over the years I have a decent feel for where my HR should be. I may not know it to within a beat, but certainly I am usually within 30... unfortunately the MIO often is not.
I eventually recorded an old HR chest strap simultaneously with the MIO for several exercises. I did a treadmill run, outdoor long run,...
