Myzone – the brand behind one of the most accurate heart rate trackers on the market – has launched the world's first interchangeable exercise tracker for the gym, outdoors or in water that you can wear on your chest, arm or wrist.
The MZ-Switch offers you another way of overdelivering on value for your members and clients.
Now you can offer more options than a chest strap alone. You can show further empathy and an alternative for body conscious members that need help with fitting their device but don't want to lift their clothing to adjust a strap, and you can unlock the pool so anyone can enjoy earning their MEPs while swimming.
The new dual-sensor device also enables deeper engagement into your member base, enhancing a member's lifetime value for your business. Now anyone can monitor and earn Myzone Effort Points (MEPs) for every single type of physical activity. The Switch is wearable three different ways, which means that reaching the World Health Organization’s Guidelines for Physical Activity (which equates to 1300 MEPs per month) is more attainable than ever.MZ-Switch provides live feedback on heart rate and simplifies this into clear coloured zones that reflect the level of effort being put into the activity. MZ-Switch will automatically calibrate to your members' resting and peak heart rate, and it will consider age to personalise each effort zone to any user. The more effort, the more highly addictive MEPs they receive, regardless of athletic ability or physical activity. This simple and unique system ensures users receive data on metrics such as average intensity, heart rate, calories burned and more which provides key insight into the information that truly matters in their workout – personal effort.
The MZ-Switch has the following features:
The wrist-based monitor provides 95% PPG accuracy for any non-gripping activity and repeatable movements, including swimming, running, HIIT and so on. The tracking technology uses an optical blood flow sensor that shines an LED light into the skin to measure the movement of blood in the arm. Blood flow is matched to the heartbeat pumping blood around the body to determine the user’s heart-rate. As MZ-Switch is 100% waterproof and can successfully track heart-rate under water, wrist tracking is perfect for swimming.
Clear and accessible data - Myzone has always been about providing complicated data in a simple format for fun, fair fitness. MZ-Switch offers that easy transition for people wanting to start recording their accurate physical activity with an unintimidating and less invasive wrist or forearm strap that records the heart’s activity through the pulse. This is ideal for people who walk or cycle and then can transition to physical activity tracking for higher intensity exercise without purchasing a different product as the MZ-Switch doubles up as an ECG monitor.
Connectivity - With Ant+, Bluetooth, and a built in memory of 36 hours, MZ-Switch streams live statistics to your smartphone, third party apps and devices, such as Apple Watch, Samsung Watches, Android wear, Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun and Apple Health, while storing the data for future upload to the Myzone in-club display or the Myzone app.
