PEAR Sports and Mio Global Team Up to Enhance Personal Coaching Platform with Wrist-Based Heart Rate Monitoring

Fitness consumers are now able to optimize training with industry-leading heart rate technology combined with personalized workouts 

Irvine, Calif. — July 7, 2016 — PEAR Sports announces today a partnership with heart rate technology leader, Mio Global, to create a customized fitness experience that monitors your performance and motivates you to meet your fitness goals. The PEAR Sports app can now connect seamlessly with Mio FUSE heart rate + activity tracker to provide users with a highly requested, wrist-based wearable that monitors physical activity with EKG-level accuracy.

“Heart rate training during a workout is crucial for measuring and monitoring your performance, so it made perfect sense for us to pair up with Mio,” commented Bob Allison, CEO of PEAR Sports. “Together, we’ve combined our renowned coaching app with Mio’s critical heart rate tool as a way to offer our customers the most well-rounded personalized coaching experience.”

PEAR Sports leverages their expansive library of personalized workouts from world-class coaches to help anyone – from busy moms to seasoned athletes – reach their fitness goals. The personal training app delivers real-time audio coaching and pairs with Mio FUSE to monitor key stats such as heart rate, calories, steps and sleep. Whether you want to use heart rate training to elevate your fitness routine or you’re just starting a new fitness routine, Mio FUSE will deliver the real-time data and personalized feedback with precision and accuracy during any activity.

To celebrate the launch of the PEAR and Mio Global partnership, a specially priced bundle offer is now available on Amazon for $99. The Mio FUSE + PEAR Fitness bundle includes Mio FUSE and three months of unlimited workouts within the PEAR app. For more information or to purchase the bundle, visit or

“More than steps counted or calories burned, your heart is the most accurate indicator of your fitness, so we’re very excited to partner with PEAR Sports’ innovative coaching platform that uses heart rate as a key performance indicator,” says Liz Dickinson, CEO of Mio Global. “This integrated solution provides the opportunity for anyone to experience the benefits of interactive audio coaching and personalized feedback through convenient wrist-based heart rate monitoring to track performance with accuracy.”

Mio FUSE integrates easily with the PEAR Sports app using Bluetooth technology to send and receive workout stats in real time. The waterproof, wrist-based fitness tracker is engineered for comfort and durability, making it the perfect addition to health and wellness programs looking for a heart rate component. Coming in October, Lean For Life! By Lindora clinics will integrate PEAR Sports and Mio FUSE into its personalized clinically-based weight management programs. PEAR will provide the digital solution, hosting a Lindora channel within their app, while Mio will act as the hardware solution for Lindora’s consumers to use the wearable heart rate monitor the way they want – running, biking, swimming, hiking, etc.
