New Year's resolution? Check. Gym membership? Check. Willpower? We'll come back to that one. Fancy new fitness band? Misfit has got that one covered.
Today at the annual tech-fest CES 2016, Misfit announced the latest in their line of fitness wearables - the Misfit Ray. The fashionable Ray tracks your physical activity (as well as all your inactivity) and sleep with a 3-axis accelerometer. It also has a vibration motor to silently wake you up, alert you of notifications and give you a nudge when you've been motionless for too long.
You don't need to be afraid of getting it wet, as the merpeople-friendly Ray is water resistant all the way down to 50 meters. No charging is required either, thanks to a replaceable battery that lasts for 6 months. It means this sleek and stylish wearable won't have to leave your wrist in the middle of a busy day.
Seemingly taking design tips for the Jawbone UP3, the Misfit Ray is only 12mm in diameter - fitting in neatly on your wrist next to spikey bangles, leather wristbands, analogue watches or whatever you fashionable people wear. It has a handy interechangeable design, which allows you wear it on a number of Misfit-branded or custom accessories, on your wrist or even as a necklace.
The Ray works with Misfit's clever Link app to interact with electronics around you. Within range of other Link-compatible products, you could change songs, turn off the light, maybe even take a selfie and much more, just with the Ray's basic controls.
The Ray comes in the must have iPhone 6S colour - Rose Gold, as well the more subtle Carbon Black. It's now available for pre-order on misfit.com, and will be available in stores worldwide in Spring 2016. Prices will start at US$99.99, so with a wallet-friendly price tag like that, we hope it can perform well against the competition.
