As how much I would love to track my activities and sleep, there is something boring about fitness trackers, that keep me away from it. After all, how many rubber, metal, or plastic watch-like devices can you really put on your wrist? However, the new Misfit Ray Fitness and Sleep Monitor promises relief from the monotony of design in the market. With a distinct deconstructed and modular look, the Ray is called “uniquely wearable” by its makers, and promises to be as subtle or as bold as you want it to be. The Ray’s cylindrical aluminum body measures in at just over 1.25 inches in length, not including its silicone strap that can be easily swapped out with leather watch bands that use a spring-pin mechanism to attach.
When it comes to functionality, the Ray does a lot. It has the basics and sleep-cycle tracking while handling a variety of notifications such as e-mail and texts. It can provide nudges during periods of inactivity and can even act as a wireless controller for such things as turning on your Internet-of-Things-enabled lights or playing your favorite running playlist. The combination of a vibration motor and the colored LED can be configured to let you know at a glance what’s happening on your phone.
The Ray can be pre-ordered now for $100 with a thin sport band, or $120 for a leather-banded version.
