In addition, there are interchangeable straps as well. You are sure to love its simple and sophisticated design. It is a great option for women looking for a smartwatch.
Interestingly, Misfit is opting for its own operating system. It is compatible with both Android and iOS. It is expected to be capable of running apps though exact details have not been provided at the launch. Under the hood, it runs Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. It is water resistant up to 50 meters and comes with two days of battery life on a single charge. The watch will charge via a standard USB port connecting with a magnetic charging cradle.
There’s something called touch bezel which is a thin strip of display around the face to control interactions on the smartwatch. It features a heart rate monitor on the back of the watch. It includes accelerometer, altimeter, GPS, microphone and 4GB of storage for music. You can easily play music via connected pair of Bluetooth headphones. Misfit is also developing a custom interface which features a radial home screen. Here, you can navigate by swiping along the edges of the display.
