Misfit Windows Phone update adds linking and syncing to Misfit Flash

Misfit updated its app for Windows Phone, adding a way for those smartphones to link up and sync with the Misfit Flash fitness and sleep tracker for the first time. The app was originally released with support for the Misfit Shine.

Like the Shine, the Misfit Flash is a circular device about the size of a small wafer, but unlike the Shine, which is metallic, the Flash is made of plastic. While it can be strapped to a wrist with an optional band, the Flash, again like the Shine, can also be clasped to a piece or clothing, a key chain or anything designed to be placed near a body. Because of its plastic material, the Flash is much cheaper ($49.99) than the Shine ($99.99). but still comes in seven different colors.

The fact that the Misfit app can now support the cheaper Flash means that more Windows Phone users might want to get it for their fitness tracking needs.

Thanks to everyone for the tips!

  • Despite the 2 star rating, Im glad they're still supporting us.
  • Lol
  • ;)
  • That app rightly deserves that rating, the constant syncing issues I had with the Shine over the few agonizing days I had one prove that rating. I would recommend against buying one because their app and their service sucked.
  • beautiful fitness gadget...
  • Superb! Really caught my eyes!
  • I had to leave a 2 star review on ms store for misfit shine which was not upto mark in terms of fitness tracking. But I hope they improve on the concept and make it more realtime.
  • I may get a flash now. :)
  • Looks alright for those on a budget.
  • I got the shine, but quickly saw problems with the companion app. Sometimes it would sync information from the device to my phone, it would "lose" a significant amount of progress. For example, I would go from ~70% on the device, down to 21% after syncing. It also never tracked my sleep, or at less it didn't sync that information to my phone. My wife's phone (android) has not had any of these issues.
  • Well hopefully this new update fixes your problems.
  • Final update is a huge step forward for Shine devices. You should check it out.
  • Well, I returned it a few days after I got it because it was essentially worthless to me.
  • I would also like to say that this final update solved all my syncing or app-freezing problems I previously had. I can now use it with my Shine, without problems. Just letting you know if you're using or interested in buying one.
  • Happy to report like some others that the updated app actually works now. My Flash has never synced better. Only wish the app were more feature-rich like its IOS equivalent.
  • At last! Now please add an overview for a week/month, like the android version already has. :)
  • Fool me once...will not buy their products again
  • I only ever see obese people drinking diet coke.... I guess fitness trackers will be the next 'diet'. If u need a gadget to help u lose weight and stay fit u are a loser and will always fail. Ever see obese Asians? Africans? The Morbidly obese seem to be a product of just one country....
  • You're actually wrong on multiple levels. A lot of fit people (including myself) like to keep track of their fitness with gadgets like these because you get a good idea of what you're doing and it's fun. And the U.S. isn't the only country with high obesity rates. Mexico is worse in that regard and Canada isn't far behind the U.S along with others like New Zealand, Britain, and Australia.
  • For the study, the researchers conducted what they say is a first-of-its-kind analysis of trend data from 188 countries. More than 50 percent of the world’s 671 million obese people live in just 10 of those countries: 1.United States
    2.China
    3.India
    4.Russia
    5.Brazil
    6.Mexico
    7.Egypt
    8.Germany
    9.Pakistan
    10.Indonesia I hate ignorant people. A lot of people drink diet coke because it has less sugar in it and little to no caffeine. Yes, some people overindulge but some people have a real problem no matter how well they eat they still gain weight. A fitness tracker helps you look for other things depending on the device.
  • Im 6'0, 185 lbs American and I have a Microsoft Band. I go to the gym 4-5 days a week. Am I a loser? Lol
  • Ah, the joys of a simple minded version of the world.
    It is SO easy to live a life in a simple world of black and white "facts".
    It is SO much more challenging intellectually to deal with a world that includes shades grey, and dare I say even a full spectrum of colors.
    Fools and simpletons are the fuel on which despots and tyrants depend.
  • WTF is the problem with you.  Go away loser.
  • I'm an obese Asian... Sooo
  • How is it? I had a band but I fell back to the old analog and got a citizen watch. I do like this though as it can be worn elsewhere than the. Wrist.
  • May get one "in a flash" (presuming it comes in red & yellow) :P. Now that they have updated their app to support syncing for the cheaper option.
