Misfit today debuted its latest product, a new Phase hybrid smart watch that, like the company's line of fitness trackers, is compatible with the iPhone. The Misfit Phase combines a round, analog-style watch with a range of smart features.
It's able to track steps, distance, and sleep duration with a built-in accelerometer, and it delivers iPhone notifications and other information like activity and alarms using a combination of the watch hands, a small color window on the watch face, and vibrations.
Made of polished stainless steel covered by satin aluminum in several different shades, Misfit's Phase is waterproof up to 50 meters and includes a 6-month battery that does not need charging. It works with any field-style 20mm watch band, including many Misfit-designed bands.
The Misfit Phase can also be used as a remote for controlling music, snapping iPhone photos, advancing slides in a presentation, and more, functionality that's also found in the company's Ray and Shine activity trackers.
Misfit will begin selling the Misfit Phase on its website on November 7. Prices will start at $175.
