Misfit, a company known for its fitness tracking wearables, has now announced a new ultra-affordable tracker called Flash Link. The $20 (Rs 1,260) wearable does what you expect of an activity tracker, but the launch of ‘Misfit Link’ app also turns it into a smart button.

The Flash Link joins the likes of the Flash and Shine, which incidentally have got price cuts as well. The former’s price tag has been cut from $69.99 to $29.99, while the latter now costs $69.99, down from $99.99.

But at $20, the Flash Link is the cheapest option to choose from. Much like the Flash, the Flash Link too is built using plastic materials, but instead of the bracelet, it comes with just a clip. As for functionality, it tracks your usual fitness related activities like steps taken, calories burnt, and sleep cycles.

But thanks to a new app launched by Misfit, these affordable wearables have become all the more value for money. Misfit Link app turns the Flash and Flash Link into a smart button, which can be used to click selfies, control your music, as well as change slides at the tap of your wrist.
Msifit touts the Flash Link as the “lowest-priced multifunctional and modular wearable on the market,” which is true despite it being priced slightly more than the Xiaomi Band. The latter after all only tracks fitness data and sleep cycles, and has no smart button-like capabilities.
