The Misfit Flash fitness tracker puts personal training right on your wrist
What it is: Misfit Flash fitness and sleep monitor
What it is: A small (about the size of a quarter) wearable device (attach it to a watch band or clip that can be attached to your belt, keychain, shoe or wherever) that syncs with the Mistfit smartphone app to track calories burned, distance traveled, steps taken and sleep duration and quality. The flash can also track activities, such as cycling, basketball, tennis, swimming (it’s waterproof) and more, and comes in seven fun colors. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Google nexus and Android devices.
Why you need it: If you’re looking to up your fitness level, this easy-to-wear guy will keep you right on track. With no charging necessary, it’s always on, and with just a press you’ll know how close you are to reaching your daily goal, how many steps you’ve taken and how restful your sleep was. The Flash will also tell you the time with a simple press. And, for a real challenge, the app features a leaderboard, allowing you compete with others and tracks your daily success, so you can outdo yourself. Consider this your very own (and inexpensive) personal trainer.
