Misfit Ray keeps track of your fitness and sleep with a little flare

misfit-ray-4

Misfit is back at CES with a new fitness and sleep tracker, the Misfit Ray. The wearable is equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer, multicolor LED and vibration motor for “inactivity nudges” and call and message notifications along with a silent alarm. Like other Misfit devices, the Ray is water-resistant (up to 50 meters) and runs on a user-replaceable battery that lasts up to six months.

While its previous devices were designed to go unnoticed, the Misfit Ray has been meticulously crafted to be to look more like a fashion accessory than a fitness tracker.  The cylindrical aluminum body of the Ray comes is Rose Gold and Carbon Black and is 38mm long and a mere 12mm thick. The Misfit Ray comes with a rubberized bracelet band, but Misfit has engineered the Ray so that it can be used with custom wrist and necklace accessories.

In addition to keeping track of your daily steps and sleep patterns, the Misfit Ray also works with the company’s Misfit Link app, which turns the Ray into a remote for your phone, giving your the ability to control the camera, music, send messages and even trigger IFTTT recipes.

The Misfit Ray is available for pre-orders on Misfit’s website now for $99, but won’t be shipping to customers until sometime this spring.

Misfit Introduces Ray, The Most Versatile Activity Tracker Yet

LAS VEGAS, NV January 5th 2016—Today Misfit announced Misfit Ray Fitness and Sleep Monitor, the newest product in the Company’s line of design-forward wearables. 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 aluminum body, able to be worn with Misfit-branded or custom accessories on the wrist or as a necklace. Ray effortlessly complements watches, bracelets, and fine jewelry. Its elemental, interchangeable design makes it easy to personalize. 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 multicolor 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 50 meters.

Misfit Ray is compatible with Misfit Link, the groundbreaking software experience that turns your wearable into a remote to connect with the world around you. Communicate with friends, turn on your lights, change your music, take a selfie, 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 distills 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 $99.99, Misfit Ray is now on display at International CES at the Misfit booth (#73923, Tech West Sands Expo).
