Misfit’s activity trackers and smartwatches are known for marrying functionality with style. The company’s latest timepiece is no different.
Many smartwatches are too cumbersome for those with smaller wrists and it is this market segment that Misfit is catering to. Featuring a stainless steel case with matte finishing, Path is the company’s third and smallest hybrid yet.
Announced at CES 2018, the timepiece has a 3-axis accelerometer to deliver info on steps, calories burned, distance traveled, as well as both sleep duration and quality. The accompanying smartphone app allows you to set goals, create smart alarms and movement reminders. There is no heart rate tracking, don’t look for it, its not there. This is more about covering fitness tracking basics.
Path does have smart watch functionality, though. When connected to your smartphone it delivers call, text, email, and app vibration notifications. A physical button on the side acts as a remote control for photo capture, music controls and rings your phone if you happen to mislay it. And yes, in case you were wondering, the watch even tells the time!

The 50 meters water resistance means you do not need to worry about take it off in the shower or when going swimming. You can forget about recharging too, as it operates on a replaceable battery that lasts up to six months.
Coming across very much as a traditional analog watch, Path comes in Stainless Steel, Rose Tone, Gold Tone, and Stainless Steel with Gold Tone Accent. There is lots of rooms for customizing as the 16mm straps are interchangeable.
Prices start at $149.99, with delivery expected sometime this Spring.
