PROS

  • The Misfit Ray is sleek and sophisticated, looking more like a piece of jewelry that can be worn by males or females than your average activity tracker.
  • The battery lasts six months and doesn't need charging, and the Ray is waterproof.
  • Activity and sleep tracking are automatic and accurate.

CONS

  • The Ray does not have a display, so all data must be accessed through the mobile app.
  • It does not include heart rate tracking or GPS.
  • The sport band does not look as high end as the tracking device itself, and buying extra bands can be expensive.
Fitness trackers are great … as long as you don’t mind wearing what’s clearly a fitness tracker around your wrist. Instead, you can opt for the Misfit Ray, a sleek device that looks more like a piece of jewelry than a high-tech gadget. The Ray has the basics of wearable features covered: It tracks steps, distance, calories, and sleep, and it lets you tag activities such as biking and yoga. It also delivers alerts from a connected smartphone and--when paired with Misfit’s Link app--can be used as a remote control to take selfies or turn on and off smart lights.

A tiny metal cylinder, in either black or rose gold, secures to your choice of a strap or chain to create a rather stunning piece of jewellery for women and men alike. It’s an elegant and sexy conversation starter.

It's not an overstatement to say that the Misfit Ray is by far the best-looking fitness tracker I've seen so far. It's also comfortable to wear, and offers accurate tracking capabilities for your steps and sleep. It's one of the only fitness trackers I'd recommend to style aficionados, and if it had a display, I'd be tempted to give it our Editors' Choice award.

The problem, however, is that the Ray doesn't bring that much to the table. Its activity tracking is basic and not hugely accurate from our experience, while the app platform is not nearly as comprehensive as some competitors. That tube design isn't the most comfortable to wear either.

[I]t felt uncomfortable on my wrist, the band way too small. Maybe it's meant for someone other than me.

As far as undercover activity trackers go, the Ray is definitely more subtle than the Fitbits and Jawbones of the world. But sacrificing accuracy for the sake of style just leads to irritation.

Does the Ray look exactly like an Alex and Ani bracelet? No, but it's closer than many others.

I’m not against paying a premium for a powerful fitness tracker but the Misfit Ray seem a tad too simple in appearance to warrant a price tag of $99.99.

It’s a very attractive fitness tracker that looks great on both men and women and I love the fact that it looks more like a fashion accessory then a tool. That doesn’t mean it’s not capable because it very much is.
