Misfit Phase, an Analog Timepiece with Smartwatch Capabilities
Smart wearable manufacturer Misfit recently launched a new device called the Misfit Phase, a unique combination of an impressive-looking analog watch with a set of smart sensors that can track its user's steps, sleeping habits and even help them in their fitness goals.
Billed as a smartwatch, the Misfit Phase can alert its user of incoming calls, app notifications and messages, according to The Verge.

Following its announcement, the tech community commented that the Phase is actually a hybrid smartwatch. Unlike most smartwatches in the market today, the Misfit Phase sports an analog face, something that adds class into it, rather than a very techno vibe.
The design of the wearable is reminiscent of Misfit's range of fitness tracker products. It sports a minimalist design, with a combination of aluminum finish and an option for either a silicon or a leather band.
The Misfit Phase offers a wide selection of fitness features, including swim tracking. However, the smartwatch does not have a heart sensor or other advanced inclusions that most smartwatches have.
The Misfit Phase can be synced to a support smartphone and vibrates whenever the phone receives a notification or message. It also has a button that can be customized to support different functions, such as controlling music playback on the phone.
The Misfit Phase analog smartwatch will be released in the United States on Nov. 6. It will cost $175 for the model with a silicone strap, and $195 for the leather band variant.
