Basis, the SF start-up which released its well-manufactured and accurate Watch (B1) in 2013, has been bought by Intel last Spring. They now release their 2nd iteration which seems to even better integrate more powerful components.  Owning a Basis B1, I can tell you how the automatic workout detection (walking, biking, running, sleeping) is a key feature compared to other trackers on the market.

Misfit launches its Flash version, a $50 Fitness Tracker That Packs a Punch

Misfit launches its Flash version, a $50 Fitness Tracker That Packs a Punch | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
We first wrote about Misfit Wearables' first activity tracker, the Misfit Shine, back in 2012. Not only did it look absolutely gorgeous, but it never needed charging, and it was waterproof. It had some flaws, but for 100 bucks, it wasn't bad. Well Misfit's second wearable, the Flash, is here, and it just undercut its own product by $50
Olivier Janin's insight:

I own a Misfit Shine, the 1st version of Misfit wearable activity tracker. I appreciate the fashion of the device, and the bright and easy UX (especially the BT Sync process with the device and my iPhone which has a little magic). The interface and the dashboard are a little to simplistic for me. But this is easy to scale up.
