The solution is not more inspiring music or reading self-help books – the solution is understanding the human reward system and playing into it. Simply put, humans need feedback and instant gratification in order to be encouraged to modify or create a given behavior. Without reward, without a sense of gaining something, why would you want to do anything?
Myzone tracks every ounce of effort you put into exercise by the beat of your heart. This data is then used in a very simple point system, called MEPS (Myzone Effort Points), to give users a sense of satisfaction and achievement. It ensures all of your effort is rewarded.
Myzone uses a chest strap for one important reason: accuracy. Wrist-based devices are simply not accurate for exercise that is non rhythmical, at a high intensity, or when the wearer tenses their forearm muscles. Therefore, the data that comes from these devices is inaccurate when boxing, jumping, lifting, or moving in different ways, and inaccurate data is irrelevant. This is why Myzone uses a chest strap - the information collected is 99.4% accurate to an EKG machine and is fit for the purpose of exercise. We believe that you deserve credit for all your effort – so we make sure all of it counts.
