Best smartwatches (December 2017)

Smartwatches are still a very new thing to a lot of people, and for good reason. You don’t absolutely need one to get through the day, and some of the best smartwatches are much too expensive …

For those unfamiliar, hybrid smartwatches blend the classy look of analog watches with the connectivity features of a smartwatch. That’s exactly what the Misfit Path does, and it does it in style. It features a stainless steel casing with a matte finish, along with support for interchangeable 16 mm straps.

We were able to go hands-on with the Path here at CES, and we were quite impressed by the quality of the silicon strap and watch casing.

On the side of that steel casing you’ll find a smart button that acts as a remote control, allowing you to play music, take a picture, connect to other smart devices, or ring your phone. Speaking of your phone, the Misfit Path can also give you customized call, text, email, and app notifications right on your wrist. The Path also has a second time zone feature, as well as vibration alarms and move reminders.

You can use the Path as an activity tracker, too. It will track your steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, and sleep duration and quality with its 3-axis accelerometer. The Path is water resistant up to 50 meters (5 ATM), and has a replaceable battery that lasts up to six months.

Interested? The Misfit Path will be available in Spring 2018 on starting at $149.99. It’ll be offered in four colorways: Stainless Steel, Rose Tone, Gold Tone, and Stainless Steel with Gold Tone Accent.
