Misfit Becomes More Smart Home Friendly

We have covered various Misfit wearables here in the past. They are great for tracking your health. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could use them to interact with your smart home? The company has announced that the Flash fitness and sleep monitor now offers Nest integration. You will be able to stop and start your Spotify playlist. The device will support IFTTT, so you can use your wearable device to turn devices on and off, send fitness information to other services, and more.

Flash uses Logitech’s Harmony API to control your smartphone devices like lights, TVs, and music players. It will also support the August Smart Lock. Pretty exciting, isn’t it? We are going to see similar moves like this by other companies in this space in the future.
