Sandra Magnon, International Business Development Manager, Mio Global said, “Smart technology is the new age, and heart rate monitoring in performance wearables for fitness gurus, sport players and those looking for accurate results they can see is increasing, especially in the MENA region wherein chest straps are a local favorite at the gym. That’s where Mio’s fitness trackers come in. We’re here to provide accuracy in sleekly designed smart watches, and are glad to be doing this with Alpha Tech. We have high expectations from the regional market, and look forward to our alliance with Alpha Tech on this endeavor.”
