What is Myzone?
Myzone is an innnovative wearable heart rate based system that uses wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity. It is highly successful due to its accuracy at 99.4% EKG. It is useful for anyone who wants a gamified and motivating wearable. Myzone monitors heart rate, calories, and time exercising in real time and converts that into Myzone Effort Points (called "MEPS").
What makes Myzone different?
Myzone aims to help people feel good about exercise through technology. Unlike many others, Myzone is the only physical activity tracking platform based on the World Health Organization's Physical Activity guidelines. It uses a game-based platform and social experience that rewards effort not fitness, motivating users to reach their personal bests.
STEP 1 - Wear your belt
Wearing your Myzone belt is easy and comfortable. Position the belt so that the center piece is directly below your chest, on top of your sternum.
STEP 2 - Exercise ANYWHERE
Whether you're in the gym watching your live feed, or out on the street viewing your tile through the Myzone app, you can rest assured you're earning MEPs and tracking your effort anywhere you go.
STEP 3 - Monitor your results
By logging in to your Myzone account on your computer or through the Myzone App, you'll be able to see minute-by-minute breakdowns of your exercise effort. Track your progress over time to gain more understanding about your workout habits.
STEP 4 - Challenge, Share, Compare
With built-in leaderboards, status rankings, and social integration, we've made it easier than ever to show off your progress. Meet World Health Organization standards every month to rank up and pass your friends.
STEP 5 - Achieve your goals
By using the MZ-Switch, you'll have access to relevant effort-based data to help you push your limits and reach new heights. Monthly goals allow you to "level up" and earn incentive prizes at our YMCA.
LIVE IN CLUB DISPLAY
At the Richard Kane YMCA, your Myzone tiles will work with TVs in our studio workout rooms, so that you can choose to compete with friends and monitor your effort more easily. Also, this will enable group instructors to get real time feedback on individuals' heart rate and effort, and give more personal instruction.
