Looks like the hybrid smartwatch scene is genuinely heating up this holiday seasons with the entrance of another alternative from Misfit Wearables. As with all hybrids, the Misfit Command features an analogue watch face along with smarts tucked within the watch.
Misfit’s hybrid offering does exude the clean yet trendy feel; probably one of the nicest looking watches to come out of the company.
Beneath the clockwork lies all day activity tracking and some smarts. The tracked stats are wirelessly synced to the Misfit app which is available on both Google Play and iOS devices. Or you can simply view the day’s goal progress right on the watch face by toggling to activity mode.
The vibration enabled wearable will notify the user of customisable incoming smart notifications. The watch can also function as a remote to take pictures on connected mobile devices, play music, or even find your phone by ringing it.
The Misfit Command hybrid smartwatch is water resistant to 50m and an in app upgrade allows the user to track pool swim distance. A single user replaceable battery will power the watch for up to a year.

The Garmin Vivomove HR is probably the only hybrid that features rather heavily on fitness, elevating it to a different league compared to the competition. Nevertheless, I’m sure there’s a hybrid smartwatch to suit everyone’s taste this holiday season.
The new Misfit Command is available in sport straps ($149.99) or stainless steel bracelet.($169.99) The watch will only ship late November but Misfit is already extending their early Black Friday pricing by taking 25% off pre-orders for the hybrid watch.
