The Misfit Phase certainly looks the part, but its simplicity can lead to frustration.

A stylish timepiece, but not all that smart

from Expert Reviews

If you just want to track your steps in style, the Misfit Phase could be the tonic. Just be prepared to memorise a complicated colour-coding system if you don’t want to be a slave to your buzzing wrist.

The Misfit Phase is an attractive, minimalist, analog watch that gives you smartphone notifications and may be especially handy for those who have smart home devices linked to a Harmony hub, but its lack of a display and having to rely on your smartphone every time you receive a notification could be a turnoff for some. While it can’t control smart home devices, the $180 Withings Steel HR can also track your heart rate and deliver smartphone notifications in a smaller, sleeker package.

Gorgeous and great, but it comes with a hefty price tag

from Tech Advisor

If you feel comfortable spending £165 to get a stylish watch (albeit rather a chunky one) with smart features, and are confident that you won't miss GPS or heart rate monitor, you'll be pleased with the Phase. But for anyone questioning that price tag I'd recommend looking at Misfit's other...More

If you feel comfortable spending £165 to get a stylish watch (albeit rather a chunky one) with smart features, and are confident that you won't miss GPS or heart rate monitor, you'll be pleased with the Phase. But for anyone questioning that price tag I'd recommend looking at Misfit's other trackers or waiting for the new Misfit Vapor smartwatch release.

A smartwatch that looks smarter than it is

from Alphr

Think about the problems you have with smartwatches right now, and the Misfit Phase ticks off pretty much every single one of them. The battery life is incredible, it looks great, and you can look at it in bright sunshine without wondering what the time is.

More than meets the eye

Sleek, stylish and simple, the Misfit Phase is an easy-on-the-eye activity tracker that collects your data without really pushing you to become more active. A great step tracker for those after subtlety, but it won’t cut it for enthusiasts.

Fitness freaks should look elsewhere, but the Phase is otherwise a fantastic first effort from Misfit. Smartwatches don’t have be tiny phones bolted onto your wrist - just handy helpers like this. Notifications might be basic, but they’re really all you need - a gentle nudge to check your phone, and only for the few messaging, email and social networking apps you use the most, not everything you’ve got installed.

Wareable

Minimal design, tactile smarts

from Wareable

The Misfit Phase is an elegant new vessel for Misfit's activity tech, and a beautiful watch in its own right. Notifications take a bit of time to get used to, and activity tracking is still limited overall when put alongside rivals such as Fitbit, but the Phase is all about subtlety – and to that end it gets a lot right.

Proves hybrid smartwatches could replace basic activity trackers

from Ars Technica

Misfit struck the right balance of smart and style with the Phase.

Misfit struck the right balance of smart and style with the Phase. At this point, so many activity trackers cover the basics well that, for a device to stand out, it needs good design, special features, and/or great battery life. While the Phase is a little thick, you can't say it doesn't look like a traditional watch. For many who considered the company's Ray but didn't want to wear two things on their wrist, the Phase is the next best option: it combines the smarts of the Ray with the design of a timepiece.
