Misfit announced the third product in its line of wearable technology today, the Misfit Flash Link.
PC World reports that the Misfit Flask Link, which is priced at $19.99, will count steps, total up your calories and track your sleep just like the other, more expensive, fitness bands offered by the company. It’ll just lack the fancy LED lights and wristband. More of a “smart button” than a fitness tracker, the Flash Link will also be able to access smartphones to use cameras and control music apps.
The Flash Link will come with a replaceable CR2032 coin cell long-life battery and will roll out in the following colors: Coca-Cola red, reef, frost, and onyx, according to ZDNet. The wearable will come with a clasp, and a wristband will be available for purchase separately with a price of $9.95. The battery is expected to last around six months and the gadget itself is water resistant up to 30 meters.
In a press release announcing the new product, Misfit’s Vice President of Product and Design Tim Golnik said, “Flash Link is not just a more affordable wearable, it’s a more powerful one.”
We’re focused on making products everyone can use. Flash Link is not just a more affordable wearable, it’s a more powerful one.
All of the controls for the Misfit Flash Link will also work with the Misfit Flash, via a new companion app named Link. Misfit plans to add more functions to the app over time, including Logitech Harmony remote controls and IFTTT commands.
Currently available for iPhone, the Link app will be released for Android next month.
In addition to the new products, Misfit is slashing prices on the Flash and the Shine. The Flash is now available for $29.99 and the Shine is being sold for $69.99. The fitness bands were previously priced at $49.99 and $99.99, respectively.
