Misfit Ray review: a fitness tracker for the lazy

 

For all of its promises to help and enrich our lives, wearable tech is often very needy. Smartwatches constantly ping us asking for our attention; fitness trackers want us to get up and move...

Looks really nice ; Comfortable to wear ; Long battery life

No display ; No heart rate monitoring ; Pricey

Misfit Ray (carbon black, sport band)

 

The original Shine , a metal disc that automatically tracks steps and sleep and has good battery life, was innocuous. But also, easily lost. It could pop into accessories and be worn lots of places. I liked the Shine a lot when it first debuted in...

Slim design, water-resistant, long battery life thanks to replaceable batteries. Tracks activity automatically. Vibration alerts.

Uncomfortable fit won't feel great on all wrists. Minimal look means no buttons or display, except for one glowing light. Misfit app not as good as competing fitness apps.

Misfit's tube-shaped Ray fitness tracker looks stylish and gets the job done, but it does too little for what it costs.

Misfit Ray review

 

It looks like a bracelet, or some space-age tube. But the Misfit Ray's a fitness tracker. One of a vast number of track-your-steps, pair-with-an-app gadgets that keep popping up. Fitness trackers -- the standalone ones that aren't smartwatches -- have...

Misfit Ray

 

The Misfit Ray combines top-notch fitness and sleep tracking with one of the best-looking designs we've seen.

Sleek design. Comfortable. Water-resistant. Long battery life. Automatically and accurately tracks activities.

No display. Requires tool to switch bands.

Conclusions It's not an overstatement to say that the Misfit Ray is by far the best-looking fitness tracker I've seen so far. It's also comfortable to wear, and offers accurate tracking capabilities for your steps and sleep. It's one of the only...

Review: Misfit’s Ray is a subtle, stylish fitness bracelet

 

The $99 tracker covers all the basics, but look elsewhere for extra perks.

Understated design that blends in with other watches and wrist jewelry ; Automatic activity recording makes it easy to look back on workouts ; Vibration motor and a single LED keep notifications discreet ; Four- to six-month battery life, and it...

Doesn't have a display, so it can't double as a watch ; You need to keep the Misfit Link app open and running in the background of your smartphone for some of the Link features to work

People often ask me which fitness tracker they should buy. Typically they'll have a short list of features they want that most devices accomplish without much effort, which makes it hard to recommend the "best" one. Misfit wants to be the company you...

Misfit Ray

 

Misfit has been around for a while now, crafting devices such as the Shine and now the Ray that, in a sea of fitness trackers, don't look like fitness trackers at all.

An undeniably attractive tracker that’s just too pricey and basic.

Misfit Ray review: Design over delivery

 

Misfit has long understood that an activity tracker doesn't have to look like a wrist-worn rubber band. With some of its products worn in a trainer or sock, plus a partnership with Swarovski, there are a multitude of options on its roster. The Misfit...

Simple and sophisticated design, good sleep tracking, battery doesn't need charging, various strap options, customised accessories incoming, not too pricey, easy to navigate app

Activity tracking basic and not particularly accurate, distance tracking especially bad, more smartphone notifications would be welcomed, app not very exciting, platform and device lack features compared to competitors

The Misfit Ray is a good-looking and affordable activity tracker. Its subtle design means it can be worn alongside a traditional watch without looking like you're doubling-down to placate your time-telling OCD. No need to constantly recharge it is a...

Misfit Ray review

 

The Ray is a basic but smart-looking tracker that may appeal to fashion fans

The Misfit Ray's unusual looks will appeal to some, but it's severely limited in terms of functionality – not least because of the almost non-existent display – and struggles to justify its price tag.

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

All Style, Limited Substance

 

The Misfit Ray is a gorgeous fitness band that looks fantastic next to watches and other bracelets - you can even get a necklace attachment for it. It's stylish and slimline - by far the best looking fitness tracker on the market. The activity and...
