I’ve tried many different trackers and have never really found one that I love. But, when I read about Shine by Misfit, I was somewhat intrigued.
Shine is an elegant activity monitor that you can wear anywhere. It was designed to inspire people to become more active, and encourage people to set goals for how much they want to move in a day and complete them. What’s cool about it is that you could wear it with different accessories available (clasp, sport band, leather band, necklace) for different wearing locations and to different occasions (formal, business, casual, sleeping, swimming).
The monitor measures – Width 27.5mm x Depth 3.3mm x Height 27.5mm with a weight of 9.4g. The device runs on a coin cell battery which lasts about 4 months. Shine is water-resistant for swimming, which is really cool. Shine is exclusively available in additional colors at Best Buy including Silver, Black, Champagne and Topaz.
Specifically, here are the features: •Activity Tracking, •Steps, •Activities: Swimming, Biking, Tennis, etc., •Sleep, •Calories, •Clock, •Waterproof, •Extra Accessories (includes Magnet clip), •Leather Bands, •Sport band, •Necklace.
You can pick up Shine at any Best Buy location. The way the makers of Shine presented the product is extraordinary. If you buy one from Best Buy, you will be pleasantly surprised at the way it’s packaged!
I haven’t tried it yet because it only works with the iPhone, so as soon as Shine has integration with Android, I’ll certainly let you know.
If you have a Shine, let me know if you have used it in the past and what you think.
