A more affordable alternative to the Misfit Shine, the Misfit Flash offers all of the same features packed into a plastic shell. You won't have the stylish colors and cool accessories available for the Shine — but the Flash has no problem tracking running, cycling, swimming, steps, and overall activity just as well. The Misfit app, available for iOS, Android, and Windows, also offers a bit of community — it lets you know how you're doing compared to the average user, and allows you to "compete" against friends for activity points. Consumer testers also noted that they liked how many different ways the Misfit could be worn, making it much more "practical" as a fitness gadget.

Pocket-lint

Good for beginners

from Pocket-lint

The Misfit Flash is a tricky activity tracker to place, one that we think is best for beginners on a budget. It is cheap, cheerful and small enough to go unnoticed, but on the other side of the coin its accuracy isn't to sniper standards.

For basic activity and sleep tracking the associated app delivers the data in an easy-to-understand format. However, we couldn't quite get on board with the points-based system and the 12 LED interface used on the Flash itself is somewhat frustrating...

The Misfit Flash is a tricky activity tracker to place, one that we think is best for beginners on a budget. It is cheap, cheerful and small enough to go unnoticed, but on the other side of the coin its accuracy isn't to sniper standards.

For basic activity and sleep tracking the associated app delivers the data in an easy-to-understand format. However, we couldn't quite get on board with the points-based system and the 12 LED interface used on the Flash itself is somewhat frustrating.

The Flash comes in some lovely colour options and its six-month battery life is something you won't realise how much you'll appreciate until you have to charge a tracker every couple of days. But as a device it's not as beautiful as the likes of the Withings Activité. Misfit isn't going for beautiful, it's going for bargain.

Overall the Misfit Flash is a prime example of you get what you pay for - and at £50 we can see the appeal. So while it's potentially ideal for those who want an estimate of the amount of activity they do, without GPS and heart-rate monitoring it simply won't suit those who are a little more into their exercise and want more accurate results.

TechRadar

The least flashy fitness tracker you can get

from TechRadar

The Flash is a forgettable device. It doesn't do enough to warrant applause, but it's not outright awful, either. At best, it's an affordable, entry-level fitness tracker. At worst, it's a fancy pedometer.

It's also not much to look at, and I can't help feeling like I'm wearing costume jewelry. It seems Misfit knows this, which is why the Swarovski Shine was launched. That tracker appeals to the more fashion-conscious types who want a little more glitz and glam from their accessories...

But since I'm not willing to break the bank paying for a mediocre fitness tracker just because it "matches my outfit," I'll settle for the Misfit Flash. You can't really expect more with a price tag of $50, but you do get what you pay for.

Does all the magic without you having to think

from Coolsmartphone

The Misfit Flash itself is usually around £45, although right now Boots seem to have quite a few on offer for £33.32, so perhaps worth a nose if you’re looking for a gift. There’s a range of bright and funky colours available and it really is one of those devices that just works. No faffing about, no “geek knowledge” required. Just pop it on and go...

There’s a range of bright and funky colours available and it really is one of those devices that just works. No faffing about, no “geek knowledge” required. Just pop it on and go.

When you’re out, just tap the device to show your daily progress and to see just how close you are to achieving your daily goal. It spurs you on to go further and to do more, which is always a good thing if your job (like mine) involves a lot of sitting down.

Improved, more secure design but still lacks in-depth data analysis

from TrustedReviews

The Misfit Flash is feature-packed and one of the cheapest ways to track your day, but it needs to do more with the data it collects for it to be a worthwhile purchase.

Waterproof & automatically tracks sleep

Well, for me, the Misfit Flash is a winner. The fact that I can wear the Flash 24/7 without having to worry about charging the battery, which is rated to last up to six months, it is a major plus. The flexibility in how you wear the Flash is another great feature. Although the Flash is made of plastic, I have not had any issue with its durability or resilience. The one issue I have with the Flash is not the Flash itself but the accessories. The fact that the Sports Band cracked and was unusable is a major flaw. All of this would not be too bad if Misfit had other more reliable bands available or even a replacement band for the Flash. Regardless of the Sports Band issue, I still like the Misfit Flash and with prices ranging between $24.99 and $49.99 I could possibly live with Sports Band’s short comings. That being said, I did return my Flash and ordered a Misfit Shine.

Comfortable to wear, beautiful app display

from Tom's Guide

Small, discreet and functional, the Misfit Flash is a great choice for those who want to be more active but don't want to spend a lot. It's easier to wear than the Fitbug Orb, and you don't have to worry about turning on sleep mode before you go to bed, as you do with the Orb. However, if you want to have more guidance and advice, you might want to hold out for the Jawbone Up Move...

Overall, the Misfit Flash is comfortable to wear — so much so that you might forget you have it on — and its app beautifully displays your fitness data in a clear way so you can understand it.

The best fitness & sleep tracker under $50

from TodaysiPhone

All in all, I think the Flash is about as good as it gets for a low-cost fitness tracking device. It may not be as good looking as its premium sibling, but I found it much more reliable and functional. At just $49.99, it’s a steal.

For £49.99, the Misfit Flash is an absolute bargain to help increase your overall fitness for only half the price of the original Shine, especially if you were eyeing up a Fitbit Flex or a Nike+ FuelBand. As long as you don’t expect it to help with your triathlon training, it’s a great steal, but if that’s what you’re after, you’re better off with the GPS app on your phone, or something more dedicated.
