Introducing Myzone's Newest Product: The MZ-Switch
MZ-Switch is the world’s first heart rate monitor that you can now wear on your chest, forearm or wrist. The most exciting part is that this new and improved MZ-Switch is waterproof up to 10 meters. Now, our swimmers will finally be able to track and earn MEPs while in the pool. An LED Light on the device even allows you to see what zone you’re in without having to check your phone. To guarantee accurate results, it is recommended to wear the MZ-Switch on the wrist during swimming, surfing, paddle boarding or water aerobics. If you are looking for a great way to motivate yourself, this is it.
Just like the original Myzone Belt, the MZ-Switch allows you to track your real time heart rate and effort to see your data on screen and move through the zones to earn MEPs (Myzone Effort Points). Wearable three ways, you can simply switch between the chest belt, wrist strap and arm band, depending on your choice of physical activity. You can even switch the band location during your workouts and at the end of your session you will receive 1 cohesive graph, as long as there is not a 10-minute break between activities. Depending on where you wear the device changes how it measures your heart rate. When on the wrist or forearm, it uses an optical blood flow sensor that shines a light into your skin using LEDs that measures the blood flow to determine your heart rate. When in chest mode, the black pads on the strap make direct skin contact to deliver electrocardiogram (ECG) quality signals directly from your heart. Myzone is one of the most accurate heart rate monitors on the market. When wearing the device on your wrist or forearm it provides 95% PPG accuracy and on your chest, it is 99.4% ECG accuracy.
Existing Myzone users looking to upgrade to the MZ-Switch can do so by simply updating their Belt ID in the Settings of their Myzone app. If you’re not quite ready to upgrade, all existing belts will continue to be supported and function normally.
