Let’s break down the expansive options of each one: Misfit Ray Misfit Ray is Misfit’s newer wearable on the block, the precocious kid that segued away from the circular shape of many past Misfit devices to become something uniquely its own.

Gear You Need To Survive Coachella

I've been to Coachella four years in a row and just returned from Weekend 1 of 2. With Weekend 2 coming up quick, I'm here to help make sure you have the gear you need to preserve your upcoming time of your life!

For the first time, the art has been commissioned solely for Coachella instead of being reused from another festival - and it's bigger than ever. Additionally, Coachella's stages have received significant upgrades. Specifically, the main stage (officially the Coachella Stage) now has wraparound, giant screens and the Sahara tent (which mainly hosts EDM acts) has dozens of LED-powered cubes positively packed with lights.

Misfit Tackles Wearable and Audio Tech at CES

Misfit CES
In most cases, a company presenting their new line of next generation products at CES sticks to one lane or realm of the tech industry – their bread and butter, so to speak. Not Misfit. Misfit made two huge announcements in completely different areas of the tech field, and each product has got techies from across the aisle chattering. Unveiling both an activity tracking wearable and wireless, smart headphones, Misfit went for the jugular at this year’s CES Despite the obvious split between launching both a wearable and a set of headphones (which could arguably actually be referred to as wearables too), what unites these two separate realms of technology is the overall goal and functionality of the products Misfit creates:...
