Behold: This Is the Cheapest Wearable Yet!
We are kind of obsessed with wearables around here, from geeking out over the upcoming Apple Watch to keeping close tabs on any new tech that gets released within earshot… or arm’s reach. But even if we could get our hands on some of the tech-sessories of our pre-order dreams, we wouldn’t exactly have the necessary funds to fork over (these guys tend to be expensive!). But with the latest activity tracker on the block, you can have your wearable and afford it, too.
The Misfit Flash is made by the same company that gave us the good lookin’, Mother’s Day-approved Misfit Shine, a sleek and trendy way to wear your wearable no matter where you go. The Flash takes a sportier approach, but don’t worry, there’s still plenty of good style to go around.
The Flash tracks your sleep, health and activity while syncing with your smartphone. It’s waterproof, comes in seven gorgeous colors (including bright yellow, turquoise and pink) and can either be worn as a clip-on or a bracelet. But what’s probably the coolest part of this new tech is that it doesn’t need to be charged. Yup, we mean it. No plugs and no dying batteries, which means you can just put it on and forget about it, no problem.
The Misfit Flash syncs with your phone to help you track improvement over time, see your daily activity, and set goals for exercise. You can even compete with your friends using Flash’s app.
Also sweet? The low cost for this sweet new gadget. Though the Flash isn’t on sale just yet, you can pre-order them for $50.
