You might be familiar with the Misfit Shine – it’s one of the most popular smart jewelry options available. Misfit recently expanded its offerings with the Ray, which is a sleek cylinder of anodized aluminum, and which comes in a huge array of colors including beautiful metallics that make it hard to believe that this is actually a swimproof fitness tracker. Besides boasting a variety of fitness-related features, Misfit Ray alerts you when a call or text is incoming plus it lets you control your music, snap photos, and much more. As smart jewelry goes, it’s extremely versatile: While the unit comes with a single fitness-oriented strap in your choice of color, Misfit offers a variety of accessories that let you customize your Ray so that it looks more like upscale jewelry than a fitness tracker: A lariat necklace, a double-wrap leather band, and beautiful paracord bands with tassels and gold accents are just a few options.
