Apple Watch Heart Rate Data vs. Mio Alpha Heart Rate Monitor [Chart]

Posted May 7, 2015 at 2:47pm by iClarified · 67676 views
Check out this chart which compares heart rate data measured by the Apple Watch to a Mio Alpha heart rate monitor.

The chart was created by engineer Brad Larson of Sunset Lake Software and co-founder of SonoPlot.

"Extracted the raw Apple Watch HealthKit heartrate samples after a run and compared it to an HR monitor I had on"

"Aside from the Apple Watch capturing heartrate once per 5 s, and the Mio Alpha every 3 s, the readings are nearly identical. Impressed."

Is that Mio Alpha thingy supposed to be superior or worse? Am I supposed to be amazed AW is so good or bad? I DON'T UNDERSTAND! :<<<<

That graph shows how bad both are I guess! Another feature for those with 'little knowledge'.

Exactly! And since both are using the same technology and measuring in exactly the same place (dorsal side of the wrist), it is really no surprise that they get the same results.
