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.

“ Apple's iPhone 6 and Apple Watch launch event on Tuesday was both wildly successful and simultaneously beset with bumps. Apple's livestream initially cut out. A Chinese translator frequently cut in. And the biggest disappointment: Apple's health care plans got cut from the program. After months of strategic leaks, Apple observers were ready for the company [...]”

Apple Has Considered $400 Price for Wearable Device

Apple Has Considered $400 Price for Wearable Device | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Apple's high-end wearable will be among the most expensive of the category.
Olivier Janin's insight:
The Apple wearable should be priced at $400 and shipped from 2015. iWatch is not the definitive name. I guess Apple will arrive with an innovative name which must succeed in defining its vision on the new segment it will create (much more than a watch if Apple succeed in concretizing Tim Cook's vision).IDC forecasts the wearable market at 19 millions units this year, and predicts a 112 millions units sold in 2018.

Apple Bets IPhone Magic Will Spill Over to Wearables

Apple Bets IPhone Magic Will Spill Over to Wearables | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Apple will introduce a wearable gadget along with new iPhones on Sept. 9, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Notices for the event, which will also take place in Cupertino, were sent out yesterday.


Apple declined to comment beyond the e-mailed invitation, which said: “Wish we could say more.”


While companies such as Fitbit Inc. and Jawbone have made some headway introducing wearables to the public, global sales of the activity trackers hit just 13.6 million units last year, according to researcher Parks Associates. That’s about the number of iPhones Apple sells in a month, giving Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook room to boost the size of the market.


The new device also will give the clearest sign yet of where the company is headed without Steve Jobs at the helm. Cook, who took over almost three years ago to the day, has been under pressure to show that the company will continue to deliver breakthrough products.




“How he’s perceived in the next few years will be decided in the next four months,” said Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray Cos., who has the equivalent of a buy rating on Apple’s stock.

Olivier Janin's insight:

The invitations received yesterday by the press confirm that Apple will introduce the new iPhone 6 on September 9th in Cupertino. 

The tone of the invitation keeps the rumors alive about the announcment of the awaited iWatch.
