Misfit today announced their newest fitness and sleep monitor, the Misfit Ray. Unlike their current line of trackers, the Ray is not a flat circle and is instead cylindrical at only 12mm in diameter and 38mm in length. When worn on the wrist, it looks more like a fancy bracelet than it does a watch. Of course like their other products, the Ray is also quite versatile and can be worn as necklace as well. “Ray can be elegant or sporty, sensual or bold, striking or subtle.”
Ray’s minimalist form conceals powerful engineering. It tracks activity and sleep with a 3-axis accelerometer and, like Misfit Shine 2, incorporates a vibration motor that allows for nuanced user feedback. Combined with a single multicolor LED eye, Ray provides inactivity nudges, text and call notifications, and a silent alarm. Like other wearables by Misfit, Ray never requires charging (the user-replaceable batteries last up to 6 months) and is water resistant to 50 meters.
“We designed Ray to be your most valuable accessory,” said Tim Golnik, Misfit’s VP of Product and Design. “Ray’s design distills the essential performance of our wearables and opens up a world of style possibilities.”
Ray comes in Rose Gold and Carbon Black, is now available for pre-order on misfit.com, and will be available in retail locations worldwide in Spring 2016.
