There are a lot of smartwatches out there that rely on digital displays. This is because a digital display can be adapted and changed according to the situation, such as displaying notifications, alerts, maps, music, games, and more. However if you are more of a conventional watch person but would still like some kind of connectivity, Misfit has you covered.
The company has recently taken the wraps off the Misfit Phase. This is the latest wearable by Misfit that kind of merges an analog watch with connected features. This is obviously not the first of its kind as other watchmakers such as Breitling have unveiled similar timepieces. The Withings Activite was also a similar device.
That being said, what kind of connected features can we expect? For starters it can track your steps, distance, calories, and even your sleep quality, all of which is linked to its accompanying smartphone app. It can also vibrate when you receive alerts, and there is a built-in smart button that lets users control smart home devices.
As for the watch itself, it will last for about 6 months in which its battery can then be changed. It has a stainless steel and aluminum body and is also good for 5 ATM water resistance. Pre-orders are expected to begin come November 7 where it will be priced starting at $175.
