Misfit Adds New Tech To Its Latest Watch
Misfit’s hybrid Path watch goes on sale today through the company’s website. It costs $149.99 and will be available in four colors: stainless steel, rose gold, gold, and a stainless steel with gold accents. The company first debuted the watch at CES, where we got to see the tiny new device. It’s the smallest watch yet from the company — at 38 millimeters — and doesn’t feature a touchscreen, although it pairs to smartphones over Bluetooth.
You can track your steps, sleep, calories burned, and distance walked throughout the day, with all the data syncing to Misfit’s mobile app. It’s water-resistant up to 50 meters and runs on a replaceable coin cell battery that can last up to six months.
Hybrid watches have become more popular because they look more fashionable than traditional smartwatches. They’re also especially convenient for people who don’t feel they can keep up with constant charging. Granted, you have to give up some functionality for their sleek look, like the ability to read and reply to messages or emails.
