Misfit Introduces New Link App and Flash Link Tracker

Jul 17, 2015

If you’re into activity tracking with a mobile management bent — and you should be — the latest news from Misfit should be of great interest: it has just launched two new products which look to extend its reach with regards to fitness management.

First, we get a new app called Link, which allows users to take a selfie using an owned Misfit Flash and the hosting smartphone’s camera or Snapchat. It also allows one to control music via specific streaming apps, and we hear more functionality (like IFTTT integration) will be added soon.

The Android build is due out next month.

Next, we get a new tracker in the Flash Link. It looks to underscore the concept of ease of use in mind, and flash linkcomes with the aforementioned Link app compatibility out of the box.

Interestingly enough, the price might be the biggest coup: $19.99.

Misfit’s Vice President of Product and Design Tim Golnik leaves no doubt about the drive to merge affordability with functionality. “We’re focused on making products everyone can use,” he says. “Flash Link is not just a more affordable wearable, it’s a more powerful one.”

According to the press release, Flash Link will be available this quarter.

We’ve been big fans of Misfit, and can’t wait to see how their new products stack up.
