Misfit has announced Misfit Ray Fitness and Sleep Monitor, the newest product in the company’s line of wearables. According to the company, Ray’s distinct deconstructed and modular design makes it Misfit’s most versatile activity tracker yet.
Only 12mm in diameter and 38mm long, Ray’s sleek form factor and clean lines make it ‘uniquely wearable’. Ray features a highly customizable cylindrical aluminium body, able to be worn with Misfit-branded or custom accessories on the wrist or as a necklace.
Ray complements watches, bracelets, and fine jewellery. Its elemental, interchangeable design makes it easy to personalize. As Misfit stresses, 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 multicolour 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 50m.
Misfit Ray is compatible with Misfit Link, the software experience that turns the wearable into a remote to connect with the world. The linked wearable enables users to communicate with friends, turn on lights, change music, and more, all with a few taps.
“We designed Ray to be your most valuable accessory,” said Tim Golnik, Misfit’s VP of Product and Design. “Ray’s design distils 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. Starting from US$99.99, Misfit Ray is now on display at International CES at the Misfit booth (#73923, TechWest, Sands Expo).
