The Misfit Path is Misfit’s smallest hybrid smartwatch yet

Misfit’s latest addition to its line of watches is the Misfit Path, which the company announced at CES, and it’s unique because the timepiece is the company’s smallest hybrid smartwatch yet.

Using a 3-axis accelerometer, the Misfit Path tracks steps taken, calories burned, the distance traveled, and sleep duration. With its connected app, you’re also able to receive calls, texts, emails, and various app notifications straight to the watch.

Similar to the Skagen Signatur T-Bar hybrid smartwatch we had a chance to test out, you can set each number on the watch to a specific contact or app. When you receive a notification, your watch alerts you by vibrating and the watch hands go to the specific number — between 1 and 12 — that you assigned.

Other features include the ability to set a second time zone, customize vibration alarms, create movement reminders, and update the date and time. Using Path’s smart button feature, you can call your phone when you can’t find it, control the music, take photos, and connect it to other smart devices.

Made of stainless steel with a matte finish, Misfit Path is a more chic and discreet alternative to its predecessors. Available in four soft color variants — stainless steel, rose tone, gold tone, and stainless steel with gold tone accent —  its silicon sport straps are interchangeable with Mistfit’s 16mm watch straps.

Misfit is also no stranger to hybrid smartwatches — with a few already on the market. In November, Misfit released the Misfit Command hybrid smartwatch with a larger watch face and more traditional look. The Path will certainly appeal to a certain demographic that prefer small watches.

Prior to the Command, the company launched the Misfit Phase in October 2016. The hybrid smartwatch has a similar, fashionable look to Misfit’s Path but includes a larger case size and darker colorways.

The Misfit Path is swim-proof and water-resistant up to 50 meters. It also includes a replaceable coin cell battery that lasts up to six months, which means you won’t have to worry about charging it.

You’ll be able to purchase a Misfit Path this spring, and the hybrid smartwatch will be available on Misfit’s website for $150.

The Garmin Vivomove Trend is a powerful smartwatch with a sleek disguise
Garmin Vivomove Trend on a person's wrist.

Garmin’s Vivomove Trend blends high-tech smartwatch essentials, plus all of the brand’s excellent health and fitness tracking capabilities, with a desirable hybrid smartwatch style. It does this by incorporating a cleverly disguised pair of screens on a face with a traditional watch handset, so at a glance, it looks exactly like a regular, non-smart watch. Tap the glass, and that all changes.

We were impressed with Garmin’s hidden screen technology on the Vivomove Sport, but the Vivomove Trend takes it a step further by doubling the amount of visible screen, rather than just having a single screen on the lower half of the face. The Garmin branding has been moved to the 9 o’clock mark, and screens now occupy the top and bottom half of the face. It’ll mean more information can be seen at one time.

CES 2023: Fossil’s latest hybrid smartwatch is the anti-Pixel Watch
Fossil Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition in black with a black strap.

Fossil’s latest Gen 6 smartwatch could be seen as the anti-Google Pixel Watch. It’s a hybrid smartwatch, so there’s no bright AMOLED touchscreen here, and while it doesn’t come with Fitbit’s health platform, it has its own special fitness talents. You won’t have to pay a subscription to see all your data in six months' time either.

It’s called the Gen 6 Hybrid Wellness Edition, which is a rubbish name for what is an intriguing product. The Gen 6 Hybrid watches use a modestly sized E-Ink screen with physical hands and a backlight, so you can always see the time and your relevant health data and notifications — all while sipping battery power. Fossil claims two weeks of life from the battery, and a quick 60-minute charge time too.
