Fitness trackers (like Fitbits and Jawbones) are a great way to monitor how much you're moving each day. But, they typically have one major downside. They're not that attractive.
To wear them, you have to give up the elegance you'd have with a piece of jewelry, such as a bracelet or watch. But one company that makes fitness trackers is aiming to change that.
Misfit products have always been more jewelry-like than other products on the market. And the company's latest line is taking that even further. The newly announced "Ray" is one of the most elegant fitness trackers you'll find.
This new slender design is intended to look great alongside the regular jewelry you wear on your wrist. And, it still comes with all of the great features that Misfit is known for. Just like previous lines, like the Misfit Shine, the Ray uses various sensors to track the number of steps you take each day, how many calories you've burned and even what your sleep habits are like. Plus, it has the same 6-month battery lifespan that Misfit is known for.
If you'd like to check in on your progress each day, you can simply tap on the light sensor at the top. This will cause the light to start flashing, and each flash indicates how close you are to your daily goal.
The best part is that the Ray isn't all that expensive. Models with a rubber wrist band are only $99, but there is also the option to upgrade to a leather wrist band for $120. But, if you'd like to buy one, you're going to have to wait a little longer. The Misfit Ray won't be available for purchase until this spring.
