Basic Features

Basic Features

The Misfit Ray is a fitness tracker and as such will provide you with the basic features you would expect from one. You can keep track of the steps that you take throughout the day, as well as your distance traveled and the calories that you have burned. This product is water resistant up to 50 meters so feel free to dive right in with this tracker on. You also have the ability to keep track of your sleep, monitoring how long you were asleep as well as your sleep cycles.

This tracker does not have a watch face so there is no digital display, however, you can still get alerted to incoming calls and texts or ongoing alarms through vibrations when you have your phone connected to the device. You can even set the device up to send you reminders to get moving when you have been inactive for too long.
Advanced Features
Advanced Features

Advanced Features

The Misfit Ray does not give you a lot of more advanced features, as it has more of a minimalist design. One of the features that are offered to you that you do not normally get from other trackers is that this one does not need to be charged, ever. This tracker uses button cell batteries that have to be replaced about every 6 months or so. That being said, some customers have commented that their batteries were only lasting them about 3 months instead of the advertised 6 months.
Accuracy
Accuracy

Accuracy

One of the customers biggest complaints about this product is the accuracy. Reviewers have stated that after a long day of walking they will check their progress and see that it looks like they did not go far. When comparing their steps taken to the steps that are tracked there are usually discrepancies with the Misfit Ray showing fewer steps than actually taken. Because the tracker does not always accurately count your steps, the numbers are off for other things that are tracked as well, such as distance traveled and calories burned. If you are considering purchasing this tracker, just keep in mind that some customers have reported that it is not the most accurate.
Connectivity
Connectivity

Connectivity

The Misfit Ray connects to your mobile device through Bluetooth. You can simply download the Misfit app to your iPhone or Android device to get started. You will need to set up an account if you do not already have one through Misfit, which is going to require basic information about you such as your age, weight, gender, and height, but this information is mostly used to improve the accuracy of the tracker itself. Once you have your Misfit account all set up then you will be good to connect your tracker to your smartphone and it is as easy as that.
Apps
Apps

Apps

The Misfit Ray does not have a screen or any way to display data so you do have to use this in conjunction with the Misfit app which you can download onto iPhone or Android devices. The use of this app will allow you to monitor your activities and sleep. In addition to the Misfit app itself, you can link your account and your device to other popular fitness and health apps such as Runkeeper, MapMyFitness, LoseIt!, and MyFitnessPal. Customers have not had any issues when it comes to linking their accounts to these other apps and it gives them more options and tracking capabilities to utilize that they do not have offered to them on the Misfit app.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

The Misfit Ray is small and sleek. It is really lightweight and feels like a bracelet on your wrist. Customers have reviewed that this is rather comfortable to wear throughout the day and even to bed at night. There are a few who have stated that the band does not fit them properly and therefore it is not the most comfortable on them, but this is not the case for most wearers. If you purchase the tracker and find it to be uncomfortable on your wrist you can wear it as a necklace and achieve the same results.
Style

Style

One thing that most customers can agree on when it comes to the Misfit Ray is that it is cute and stylish. The fitness tracker is quite small and super lightweight. Many have compared it to wearing a bracelet. The tracker comes in a plethora of colors to choose from so you are sure to find something that is going to fit your style and personality. When purchasing the tracker you can choose between a leather or a sports band so there is something for everyone. You can choose from carbon black with a black band, forest green with a green band, gold with a black band, gold with a white band, navy blue with a blue band, rose gold with a black or grey band, or stainless steel with a black, white, or cream-colored band.

The Misfit Ray does not always have to be worn as a bracelet, however, to track your activities throughout the day. Some customers opt to get rid of the bands altogether and wear the tube-like tracker as a pendant and wear it as a necklace. If you are not a bracelet person or do not like things on your wrist it is nice to know that you have another option with this tracker.

The Misfit Ray does not have size options available when purchasing the product. The bands on the product, however, are very easily interchangeable so if you find the band too big or too short when you receive your tracker you can get another band in a different length and easily swap them out. The tracker itself is rather small, weighing in at only 4 ounces and measurements of 7.3 inches x 3.5 inches x 1.2 inches. The weight, of course, is going to increase when you connect it to a band or a necklace, but regardless it is still ultra lightweight.

Power Source

The Misfit Ray is one of the few trackers on the market right now that does not need to be charged. Because you do not have to worry about charging the battery you can wear your tracker all day without it dying. The longer you wear it the more data it can collect and therefore give you more accurate results. Since the tracker does not need to be charged, it does take batteries. The batteries will generally, according to reviews, last about 3 months before you have to change them. You will, however, receive batteries for this when you purchase it so you will not have to worry about purchasing them for a couple of months.
