Misfit Flare Design
The smartwatch features a conventional aluminum frame along with a touch-sensitive crystal surface where you would typically find a smartwatch face, but in its place is a single pulsating LED. A double tap on the Flare causes an LED indicator to flash. A single flash, meaning that a user is 25% of the way towards an activity goal, a double flash is 50%, and a triple flash is 75%. A light animation indicates the activity goal for the day has been reached.

The Flare can track steps, calories burned, and distance covered, and it is intended to work comfortably all day and night. The Flare also matches up with its brethren nicely, as it’s designed to be worn all day and is water resistant up to 50 meters and, like some of Misfit’s other tracker, never needs charging. The fitness tracker’s battery lasts 4 months, and replacements can be had for $6.
