Misfit Flare fitness tracker now official
Misfit has just released a new affordable fitness tracker that only offers basic tracking features, but has a durable design and uses a replaceable coin cell battery that provides up to six months of autonomy. Dubbed Misfit Flare, this accessory has a price tag of $59.99 USD.
Misfit Flare is waterproof up to 50 meters, its frame being made of aluminum and connecting to any compatible device via Bluetooth 4.1. Its band is made of TPU, and has no watch function, although it has vibrating feedback and alarms. Fortunately, it does come with some smart features - the capacitive area located on the top of the frame can be programmed via the Misfit Link app to perform various functions - for example, to control music, slideshows, or to take pictures using a connected device.
The Misfit and Misfit Link apps work with all the major mobile platforms, including Windows Mobile. Those interested can order the Misfit Flare fitness tracker directly from Misfit, but it should also become available via various tech retailers soon.
