The just announced Misfit Phase takes the best of an analog timepiece and adds in some great smartwatch features.
Sleep tracking and more
The watch can also be used to interact with services like IFTTT and Logitech's Harmony.
Just like other devices from the company, the Phase can be used to track daily activity and sleep. But the fun doesn’t stop there.
Using the companion app, you can select to have color-coded vibration alerts sent to the watch when you receive a call, text, email, or app notification.
You can also place the device into a smart button mode. With that feature, simply pressing the side of the watch allows users to accomplish tasks like take a picture, control music, advance slides in a presentation, call a phone, and interact with services like IFTTT and Logitech Harmony.
And like other Misfit devices, there’s no need for charging. The user replaceable battery can last for up to six months. The Phase is also water resistant up to 50 meters.
While Misfit will offer a number of additional straps, any 20mm watch band will fit the device.
You can preorder the Phase now directly from the company’s site. Shipments will begin on Monday, Nov. 7
The watch starts at $175, and buyers can select from a version with a black, white, or navy sports strap. Three other versions with leather straps are $20 more.
Misfit also offers three different sets of add-on straps for $59 each. Each package offers three different colors. Buyers can also use any 20mm band.
