Almost never connects When I first bought the bulb I really wanted to like it. I've used other misfit products and I've been happy with them. The bolt didn't require a hub like the Hue system, so for a single room it was a better choice. When we first got it, the connectivity was half reliable. After a couple months and/or updates, it simply stopped connecting to any phone in my house (we have about 7 different Android devices). There's simply no way to connect to the bulb now. Not ready for consumers at all.
More than one user Me and my boyfriend both need to be able to control the lamp... It sucks that if he is connected to the lamp and is in the living room, I have to ask him to change the bulb setting for the bulb in our room. It would be better if two or more users could connect at once... So I don't have to ask him to turn off his Bluetooth so I can turn off the lamp.
Pretty good product I got the misfit for my bday so I have no idea what it cost but I do know that it has spoiled me. I love natural light and hate turning on regular fluorescent lights, so when it rains I love using the forest setting and using the sunset setting at dusk. But it is kinda annoying when the lights randomly turn on at 2am when I'm sleep. It would also be nice if the Bluetooth range was a bit longer. Minor grievances, overall a good product.
It sucks The app barely has any capabilities, you can't tell which light is which when you're making rooms, the lights bluetooth disconnects every ten seconds. Honestly, I'm surprised they get away with selling this crap
Bummer. Reliable 60% of the time. I've had 3 bolts for a year and have to refresh them in the app every time I want to change a scene; they constantly lose connection. The bulbs also don't work with IFTTT or any smart home system. And there's been no apparent development since Misfit was acquired by Fossil, only doubling down on fitness trackers.
Annoyed I've used my bolt bulb off and on for a while now to help wake me up for early shifts. Most recently It requires me to turn on location services to use it rather than just using Bluetooth. This is incredibly annoying since the location drains battery so much faster
