It’s a hardy device, weighing in at just 6 ounces with an LED screen, which uses 12 lights to show your data. It is crafted out of a combination of a special soft plastic material and the material NASA use to build space suits.
Misfit says, “Flash is comfortable, extremely durable, and waterproof to 30 meters, making it fit for even the toughest uses. It comes in seven fun colors including a lemon-lime Zest, funky Fuchsia, and minimalist Frost. Press Flash to see a halo of lights that shows your progress toward your daily activity goal and tells you the time.”
The most common complaint with wearable devices is the amount of time you need to spend charging them, but misfit has solved this problem with a CR2032 coin battery that will last up to six months. For those who don’t like bright colors or extra accessories, the flash can be worn in several different ways. Apart from around the wrist it can also be clipped on to your sleeve, tagged to your waist, strapped securely on to your shoe, wrapped around your ankle, clipped on as part of your key chain or, for the old fashioned among us, simply placed in a pocket.
The question arises, what will you do with all of this information? Well the Flash can link to your smart phone – both android and iOS – and syncs to an app via bluetooth that can help you strike the optimal balance between exercise and rest to give you the best chance at living a healthy lifestyle.
