Misfit Flash Link review

 

If you look at the box for the Misfit Flash Link, you'll see it claims to be a "smart button" -- a sort of one-off remote for toggling music remote controls and smartphone selfies. In actuality, it's a fitness tracker -- and a good one. But for some...

Extremely low-cost; water resistant for swimming or showering; built-in progress meter display; replaceable battery lasts up to six months; has bonus smart-button features

Choosing between fitness tracking and smart button functions involves toggling between two apps; some smart button features don't work as advertised; rudimentary display and single-button operation can get confusing for advanced functions.

Misfit's entry-level fitness tracker gets the job done at a supercheap price, but its 'smart button' functions leave a lot to be desired.

Misfit Flash Link

 

Thanks to a smart balance of features and price, the $20 Misfit Flash Link is an excellent fitness tracker for first-time users.

Very affordable. Does everything the Misfit Flash can. Fully waterproof. Stylish.

No real display. No wristband. Flash Link app isn't yet available for Android.

Conclusions With the Flash Link, Misfit essentially drops the price of the Flash and adds features to an already solid and affordable tracker. That makes it a pretty easy impulse buy, or a good starting point if you want to see if activity tracking is...

Misfit Flash review:

 

My favorite activity tracker last year was the Misfit Shine , a waterproof sleek metal disc that automatically counted sleep and steps, lasted months on a single replaceable battery, popped into accessories including wristbands, clips and pendants, and...

The Misfit Flash is waterproof, lasts six months on a single battery, comes with a wristband and clip-on accessory, works with iOS and Android, and tracks steps and sleep.

Lacks a heart rate monitor; plastic design feels a little cheap; LED readout shows daily progress and blinks hours and minutes, but doesn't show step count.

The Misfit Flash is a versatile, easy-to-use and extremely affordable fitness tracker that can be worn swimming, too, and it even kind of works as a watch.

Misfit Flash reef

 

Imagine that tracker but in a more affordable version -- it's called the Misfit Flash. It sounds like a B-list superhero, but it's actually an accelerometer-based budget fitness tracker.

Misfit Flash

 

At $49, Misfit Flash is the best entry-level activity tracker you can buy for less than $100. Self-quantification enthusiasts will be disappointed in the lack of features that are part and parcel of more expensive trackers, but first-timers will find a...

Very inexpensive. Improved design. Tracks steps, sleep, distance, activities. Fully waterproof and supports swimming as an activity. Stylish. Includes both wristband and clip holster.

No real display; indicator lights only. Doesn't count stairs or heart rate. Clip and wristband look and feel cheap. No vibration. Can't sync with a computer and no Web app.

Smart AssetsBatteries, it turns out, are a very personal and touchy subject. With the Misfit Flash, you never have to recharge the battery because it's a coin cell, the kind of battery used in traditional watches. And it lasts several months or even...

Misfit Flash Review

 

This is the story of how I became a believer in the activity tracking trend sweeping the smart device environment. While I was baffled that anyone would want to exercise in the first place back when products like Jawbone UP , Fitbit , and the Nike...

As activity tracking wearables go, Misfit Flash is just about the simplest of the pack. That doesn’t mean it’s the worst – in fact Misfit creates a highly impressive package here given the relatively low cost of the device itself. When this review is...

Misfit Flash Review

 

The Misfit Flash is a great value if you want a versatile device to track your steps and daily activities. The unique display shows you your progress while saving on battery life. Still, it needs to be a little more accurate to compete with the best...

This pedometer also works as a watch. By tapping a button, you can switch from progress to clock and back again.

Its step tracking isn’t very accurate, so the Flash can only give you a general idea of your activity level, not exact numbers.

This simple device is versatile and easy to use all day long, although it isn’t the most accurate pedometer available.

The new Polar Loop 2 and also new $19 Misfit Flash Link Activity Tracker

 

I just wanted to very briefly cover two new products that have been announced in the last 24 hours. Neither one really warrants a standalone post – especially since neither company has samples available on-hand (or rather, in my hands). But combining...

Misfit Flash Review

 

Small, discreet and functional, the Misfit Flash is a great choice for those who want to be more active but don't want to spend a lot. It's easier to wear than the Fitbug Orb, and you don't have to worry about turning on sleep mode before you go to...

Inexpensive ; Waterproof and supports swimming ; Can be worn in a wristband or clip ; Basic, but accurate, sleep tracking

Sensor can slip out of wristband ; Wristband feels cheap

The $50 Misfit Flash is a discreet, comfortable activity tracker that will let you dip your toe into fitness without requiring you to spend big bucks.

Misfit Flash review: Good for beginners

 

The Misfit Flash is an activity tracker and the follow-up to the Misfit Shine which launched back in 2013. The new model follows a similar design cue but swaps metal for plastic and slashes the price by half, making it the cheapest activity tracker out...

Small and subtle, colourful, cheap, app is great, six-month battery life, Spotify integration

Design looks cheap, accuracy not brilliant, device interface frustrating to use, no high-end GPS/heart-rate features

The Misfit Flash is a tricky activity tracker to place, one that we think is best for beginners on a budget. It is cheap, cheerful and small enough to go unnoticed, but on the other side of the coin its accuracy isn't to sniper standards.
