You can also wear the Misfit Ray as a necklace to discreetly monitor your daily activity levels. It monitors your sleep, steps, calories and distance. Sync the Misfit Ray to your phone to display and store your information and also to experience a vibration in the tracker for call alerts, incoming texts, alarms and movement reminders. When connected to the Misfit Link app you are able to select specific physical activities and set your settings for reminders and alarms. The Misfit Ray is waterproof up to 50 meters and can be worn while swimming. The battery is non-chargeable and needs to be replaced approximately every 4 months, but this means you never have to take off the tracker for connected charging. The display is a arrangement of lights that signify your activity level. Like the Flash, you have to connect your Ray to your smart phone to visually see your information. The Misfit Ray is a basic fitness tracker, not a fitness tracker watch so be aware of your purchase and the reasons you want a tracker before you buy.

The Misfit Ray is a quality tracking device for a moderate price. The only drawback is not being able to visually see your step count without your phone. If you have a daily goal to reach, but always have to have your phone in hand, you may want to consider using a phone app that tracks steps instead of spending the money on a wearable tracker. For the added benefits of vibrational reminders and sleep tracking, the Misfit Ray earns 4 out of 5 stars.
