Introduction of Misfit Flash Link Fitness Tracker
Misfit Wearables, or also known short for Misfit, has been around since October 2011 and its name honors Steve Jobs who ironically died the day the company was founded. The Misfit name was inspired by a 1997 Apple commercial that ran the slogan “Think Different”: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.”
Misfit has now grown to three headquarter locations and has launched three products; Shine, Flash, and Home. Now, they have their fourth with the Link product making it one of the most affordable fitness trackers on the market at only $20 bucks. Not only is the Misfit Link a very small, easy to use, and waterproof fitness tracker but it also doubles as a smart button that can be programmed to perform a variety of tasks from controlling your music player to taking a picture with your phone or even controlling your smart home.
Wondering minds want to know, is the Misfit Flash Link really just the Misfit Flash without a wrist band? Well, actually it is! The Misfit Flash priced at $30 comes with a wrist band so that you are able to wear it like a watch. However, for those of you looking to save money and perhaps wear the Misfit Flash somewhere else on your clothes, then the Misfit Flash Link could be your way to go. If you want the flexibility of both, go with the Misfit Flash as you get both the clip and the band for $10 bucks more!
