While Smartwatches haven’t yet matured, fitness trackers are currently much better, actually offer a use case and are more mature.
But most Fitness Trackers cost over $100, and if that seems expensive to you, Misfit has something for you: The Flash. It is a fitness and sleep tracking device that will cost only $49, making it extremely affordable.
It tracks calories, steps taken etc, among other activities like Swimming and Cycling. It is water-resistant to upto 30m.
It doesn’t have a Screen, however. Instead of a Screen you see a dial of circular dots, which indicate how much of your Daily Goal you have ploughed through. You control it through a Companion App on iOS and Android.
You may buy it from next month from Target, Best Buy or Walmart. It is interesting to see low-price Fitness Trackers enter the Market.
Do you think we will see more such low-cost Devices in the Future? Is the absence of the Screen a Hindrance. Is a Fitness-Tracking Device actually useful for you?
