First and foremost, Misfit 2.0 introduces a beautiful new design that includes a tabbed-based layout for quick and easy access to your health and fitness data.
Misfit 2.0 comes with the neat ability of triggering sync just by swiping left from the Today section of the Home tab. It also makes finding friends and accepting friend requests easier with the Social tab for connecting to social media and the Me tab for notifying you when you make a new friend in the Misfit network. As for the Devices tab, you can select it to view the battery life of and make customizations to your devices, including adjustments to wearing position and activity tagging.
Speaking of devices, if you have a Misfit Flash activity tracker, you can set it up for use as a button to control supported integrations, which initially include Spotify and Yo. Enable “Button Command” for your Flash and select whether to double-press or triple-press it to start and stop your Spotify playlist or message your friends with Yo.
The newly updated Misfit also introduces a monthly progress view (in addition to the daily and weekly progress views), more stats such as total distance traveled and average sleep, and the ability to add naps to contribute toward your sleep goal (because naps are great).
