CHARGING YOUR MIO LINK

1. Make sure the 4 charging pins on the back of the Mio LINK are dry. 

If not, dry them with a towel.

2. Plug the USB connector of the USB dongle into the USB port of your 

computer.

3. Attach the 4 charging pins on the back of Mio LINK to the 4 

charging pins on the USB dongle. The magnets in the charging pins 

will help the two pieces lock into place.

The LED light will fade in and out slowly in a cyan color   to indicate 

that the battery is charging. When the battery is fully charged, the LED 

light will turn off.

WEARING YOUR MIO LINK 

To accurately monitor your heart rate:

Fasten Mio LINK snugly on your wrist. The optical sensor on the back 

should make good contact with your skin

You should wear Mio LINK above, and not directly on top, of your 

wrist bone.

If you have a smaller wrist, wear Mio LINK higher on your forearm.

If you use Mio LINK for biking, wear it higher on your forearm, since 

the bending of the wrist will affect the heart rate reading.

If you often have cold hands or poor circulation, try exercising for a 

few minutes to increase blood flow before you begin to track your 

heart rate.

Getting Your Heart Rate

1. To turn on Heart Rate Mode on your Mio LINK, press and hold the 

Button until the LED lights up. The colour of this LED is an indicator 

of the battery level:

 Cyan

Battery is charged

 Yellow

Battery level is below 30%

 Red (flash twice)

Battery level is low and unable to provide HR 
measurement

2. Mio LINK will immediately begin searching for your heart rate (HR), 

indicated by the pulsing LED light.

3. Hold your arm still until the LED blinks in a distinctively slower 

pattern. This means Mio LINK has found your heart rate. The LED 

colour at this point is an indicator of the HR zone, calculated as a 

percentage of your maximal heart rate (MHR):

Note:

 This table is only a suggested range. Refer to 

Configuring Your 

Mio LINK

 (pg. 8) for more details.

If no valid heart rate signal is found within the initial 2 minutes, 

the LED will light up in red for 2 seconds, then Mio LINK will 

automatically leave Heart Rate Mode and turn off.

4. During your workout, if the red LED is flashing in a steady pattern 

(ON for 1 second, OFF for 1 second), Mio LINK has lost connection 

to your heart rate. Please refer to 

Troubleshooting 

(pg. 9).

5. To turn off Heart Rate Mode, press and hold the Button until the LED 

lights up for 2 seconds.
