Activity trackers seem to be in fashion these days, and they also try to look fashionable (pun intended). The Misfit Shine is no different. It’s an activity and sleep monitor with a circular shape, made of diamond cut aluminium, 4mm thin at the edge, and can be worn as a watch, a badge (of sorts), or a necklace. It comes in 10 different colors.
As we said, it tracks your activity, which includes running, walking, swimming (up to 50 meters deep), cycling and whatever else you might be doing while you wear The Misfit Shine. The Misfit App turns all your activity into data which is broken down into charts. Those charts show calories burned, distance traveled, steps taken. Every type of sport is broken into data with Shine.
In addition to tracking your activity, it also tracks your inactivity, i.e. sleep. If you wear it while you are sleeping, it collects the data and breaks it down into deep sleep and light sleep. Exercise won’t do you much good if you don’t sleep enough, so Misfit Shine allows you to track your progress better. For those of you who would like to wear it on the wrist, it can also tell time with its minimalist design, powered by 12 LED lights. Shine has a long lasting battery and automatic wireless syncing.
Shine can be synced with other health apps alike LoseIt!, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper. It is compatible with iPhone 4S/5/5C/5S/6/6 Plus, iPod Touch 5th Gen and above, iPad 3/4/Air/Mini (all running iOS 6.13 and above), Samsung Galaxy S4/Note 3, Google Nexus 4/5 (Or other BLE ready Android devices running software 4.3 and above) and BLE ready Windows Phone running software 8.1 and above.
