New wireless earbuds from Misfit track sleep in addition to distance and steps, according to Tech Times.
Here’s a bit of a surprise addition to the Misfit ecosystem. In addition to the Ray fitness wearable the company introduced earlier this week, the fitness tracking manufacturer also showed off a pair of wireless earbuds designed to complete the company’s existing hardware.
The Specter is a bit of an odd proposition, a perfectly fine looking pair of metallic wireless earbuds that attach to a small box, which can be clipped to the wearer’s lapel. Inside the box are the standard array of fitness tracking sensors, so the headphones can track steps, distance, and sleep.
In fact, it’s a lot like having a pair of headphones attached to a Misfit Shine fitness and sleep monitor, with one key difference: an eight hour battery life. That’s not really all that big of a surprise for wireless headphones. For a fitness tracker that’s also (interestingly) capable of tracking sleep, that’s a bit of a red flag.
