misfit ray fashionable pros and cons review

Misfit Ray Release Date

Misfit Ray was released in April 2016, just a few months after the launch of Misfit Shine 2.

Misfit Ray Current Price

Though functions are quite similar to Misfit Shine 2, Misfit Ray’s design is more stylish. With this price range, you may consider some other options, such as: Fitbit Charge HR ($80) or Garmin Vivosmart HR ($100)

Review Misfit Ray Design

What makes Misfit Ray shine is its fashionable design. Though it may look good on smaller wrists but both sexes can wear this sleek tracker.

It’s dainty and looks like a beautiful bracelet that you can wear it with other accessory or smartwatch. This is what you cannot do with the Misfit Shine 2 because it would look weird to have 2 round-faced watch on your either wrists.
misfit ray accessory pros and cons review
While Misfit Shine 2 gives you a clip to attach it to your shoes or collar, Misfit Ray has hidden 8-mm spring bars that can go with almost any standard accessory, including watch bands, bracelets, or necklaces.

Similarly to Misfit Shine, Misfit Ray doesn’t have screen and it has even less LEDs light. As a result, you can’t tell the time through it. In other words, it’s not a watch at all!!!

The activity tracker comes in 6 colors which Carbon Black and Rose Gold is the most popular ones.

Review Misfit Ray Features

Review Misfit Ray Features – Pros

Non-charging

Misfit is famous for its non-charging fitness trackers and Misfit Ray remains to have this feature. However, while Misfit Flash and Misfit Shines 2 promise to last up to 6 months, Misfit Ray battery life is just 4 months. Still, you can wear it all day and night without taking it off.

Waterproof

Misfit Ray is water resistant to 50 meters. Feel free to take it for a swim. Misfit Shine 2 and Garmin vivosmart HR are waterproof to 50m as well while Fitbit Charge HR is not.

Fitness tracking features

Like Misfit Shine 2, the Ray allows you to track steps, distance, calories, and light and heavy sleep.
A special feature of Misfit Ray that you can’t find in Misfit Shine 2 is that it has in-app activity tagging: Running, Walking, Swimming, Cycling, Yoga, Basketball, Tennis, Soccer, and Dancing.

Connected Apps & Devices

Misfit Ray lets you view your activity and sleep data via the Misfit app. You can also remotely take a picture or selfie, control music and some of your home devices thanks to its smart button.

Notification

You can receive vibration alerts for call and text notifications, movement reminders, and alarms.

Review Misfit Ray Features – Cons

No heart rate monitor tracking

This function is not available in Misfit Ray. Choose Fitbit Charge HR or Fitbit Charge 2 instead if you really concern about tracking your heart rate.

No screen and clock display

You can see how you have progressed through the LEDs light but for exact data you need to access the app to take a reading. Besides, there’s no time displayed. For someone that doesn’t want to wear too much in your wrist, this shortage is quite inconvenient.

Review Misfit Ray Conclusion

If you’re a fashionista, Misfit Ray is a good choice for you to stay fashion and healthy at the same time. However, its sleek design is also its disadvantage since you can’t tell the time from it.

Non-charging and waterproof make Misfit Ray suitable for officers who want to get more active during working time. But for fitness fans, this activity tracker might not be enough since it lacks of heart rate monitor. Garmin Vivosmart Hr or Fitbit Charge HR would be better options then.
