Myzone is the next big step in sports wearables, motivating you to get the most from exercise, whatever your fitness level, however you train. It lets you know how hard you’re trying when you work out and features a heart rate accuracy of over 99%. Myzone also offers amongst the most precise calorie-crunch data on the market, plus the ability to effectively calculate cardio and weight training.
Myzone uniquely rewards effort, while providing a game based platform and social experience that is both inclusive and engaging to all, regardless of athletic ability. As the name suggests, its technology creates bespoke and responsive targets for each individual, to provide personal feedback – hence ‘Myzone’.
Creating a personal handicap based on your maximum heart rate, it is possible to beat an elite athlete by simply working harder. For example, you might finish behind an elite athlete in an endurance run, but exert greater effort and Myzone makes you the winner – so everyone competes on a level playing field.
Myzone encourages competition with other users through cloud-based challenges via a web-based account and bespoke app. The community aspect of Myzone makes it a Facebook for physical activity. Users can analyze, ‘like’, and comment on each other’s workouts, while the app logs your activity history and even updates you over email. In fact, this is the only system to recognize and notify you when you have attained the World Health Organization’s recommended guidelines for physical activity.
The Myzone App allows you to sync your Myzone MZ-3 Physical Activity Belt with your phone meaning you can now see live data and upload stored workouts on your phone. If you prefer to use your MZ-3 with third party fitness apps then your data will still be stored (up to 16 hours) until you sync with your Myzone® app.
This app integrates with many other platforms, including Apple Health. If you grant permission, we will save your activity calories, height, weight, BMI, BMR and body fat data to Apple Health.
**** Please note that the app will only work if you have a Myzone® Account (you can create an account in the app for free if you don’t have one already) and your tile will only be shown and data uploaded if you have the new Myzone® MZ-3 Physical Activity Belt.”
- You can now access the MZ-20 scales button from 'My Body Metrics'

Lost Data. Extremely buggy.
I’ve been having problems lately where the MyZone app fails to load historical data off the belt. I don’t typically work out near a MyZone receiver or with the belt streaming to the app on my iPhone. I know for a fact the belt is recording HR because it displays on the gym equipment. I used to do my workout (out of phone range) then open up the app on my phone before taking the belt off and it would load my workout data. That doesn’t work any more. Now the only data that gets saved in the app is for the period I am within range of the phone. The actual workout data never gets imported off the belt. I used to get around this by installing the app on an iPad and use it to load the data hours after the workout. It took a few tries sometimes but it usually worked. Fed up with the app I tried streaming to my Apple Watch. Today when I went to upload data from my watch it showed there were nearly 300 samples. It hit “upload” and got confirmation that upload was successful. The data is not in the app on my IPhone. The workout data is just gone. It appears that if the belt is streaming data over Bluetooth that it doesn’t save data to its internal memory so it can’t be imported later. I never had problems before they added Apple Watch suppprt. I am use the most updated versions of everything. If I keep having problems I’m going to quit using it because it isn’t worth the hassle.
At first I had a problem with data syncing. Turned out my gym recorded total activity only while in the gym, and did not show the totals I accumulated before I got within the gym’s Wi-Fi envelope. If I disconnected the belt while in the gym, the pre-gym info was lost, and because the gym totals were part of the workout the gym totals were discarded also. After a few weeks, MyZone was able to provide a WiFi patch that corrected this problem, and my experience has been seamless ever since, now for more than a year.
I love this app. It is my favorite cardio/exercise app. I’m able to compare my exercise effort with others, can keep an accurate track of my own progress, and be healthier overall as a result. As a naturally competitive individual, I am motivated by this app to do more and work harder than I ever have.
The major improvement the app could have would be to make it effective in water sports. It does not record water exercise, probably because the waterproof pads in the belt that record heart pulse can’t function when immersed. If they could make a waterproof optical pulse measure for use in a pool, that would be phenomenal, especially in summer.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the great feedback!
Welcome Additions Please
In brief, a few suggestions/requests. I am a trainer. Large group and individual. Our facility recently started piloting the MyZone. There’s a few additional options for the App that would be welcome.
1. There should be an option to add in your workout information/routine to your uploaded file. From a trainer’s perspective this seems common sense. This would allow trainers, as well as clients, to notate the exact workout completed and attach it to its specific final workout upload. All allowing later access for assessment on the work that was done that training session as well as chart out progression, various metrics and effort, etc. Currently I use the “comments” box to serve this purpose. It would be nice to actually have a section where you could type in what the workout was and edit it as needed. Using the “comments” is a little quirky and it also does not allow for you to go in and edit.
2. An additional “time duration” clock that will display in the active workout window. Basically a visual Time Clock that starts when the workout starts, or the unit “beeps” and is ON. It would be a great addition to have access to overall time duration while using the App.
