Latest news about Misfit Flash and Misfit Shine:

17.09.14. Misfit announces Flash, a screen-less activity tracker that will cost under $50. Misfit announced Flash, its second wearable product. It’s a disk-shaped activity tracker that is covered in soft plastic. It will retail for under $50 when it goes on sale in October. The Flash is a sequel to Misfit’s first wearable activity tracker, Shine. The primary difference is that the Shine is $99.99 and is made out of machined aluminum, while the less expensive Flash is made of plastic. Like the Shine, the Flash will be able to track steps, sleep and other forms of activity and sync it with the Misfit app. Flash won’t require nightly charging, because it lacks a screen, so it can draw power for months from a watch battery. Instead of a screen, Flash will work like one big button: Tap the front and embedded LEDs will light up, allowing you to check progress toward your daily activity goal.

08.09.14. Misfit launches SDK to let other apps integrate with it. Misfit is opening up an SDK which gives developers the ability to integrate their software with the Misfit app and Shine fitness tracker. Part of the developer kit is called the “Scientific Library,” which provides access to Misfit’s proprietary activity and sleep tracking algorithms. In addition to RunKeeper and MapMyFitness, which were previously announced Misfit partners, there are a few other big companies that will be taking advantage of possibilities afforded by the new SDK. Yesterday, Misfit announced a partnership with IFTTT that allows users to automate tracking with the Shine, such as automatically logging sleep into a Google spreadsheet.
