      Comments about MIO Alpha Monitors:

      the support from Road runner was great. The watch had a requirement to charge the batteries but never mentioned in their sad excuse for a user manual.
      Road runner did not know this so sent me a second watch and phone number for factory.
      Factory admitted that they had a total problem ith their user manual and sent me latest version which was great. they need to work out with you

            Comments about MIO Alpha Monitors:

            At the gym and outdoors, hiking, running and walking. The looks is great and simple, sexy I must say. The not so great is difficult transitioning from the timer to the heart rate and setting up new heart rate goals. Too complicated and the controls aren't very responsive. The wrist band is nice but it marks the skin easily. The screen is way too dimmed for dark areas or outdoor, maybe they should incorporate light
