Our reviewer said:
The Misfit Flash came at exactly the right time for me. I was looking for something to keep me motivated to lose weight. I have tried healthy eating and diets in the past and nothing seemed to work. But with the Misfit keeping track of my daily exercise for me it soon became clear that I wasn't doing enough of it. Reaching the daily goal on the Misfit gave me the motivation I really needed.
With it’s easy-to-use smartphone app it's incredibly easy to track your day's activity and your sleep patterns, you can also log other activities such as swimming, dancing and yoga. The Flash comes fitted with a watch-type battery that lasts around six months, so unlike other activity monitors on the market there’s no need to recharge.
In between syncs with the app you can check your progress by pressing the face of the Flash, which alsodisplays a handy clock so there's no need to wear a watch too! The strap seems fairly durable, secure and comfortable so wearing it 24 hours a day, in order to track your sleep, is not a problem.
All in all this is a great device and not as expensive as some others on the market.
