I never thought I’d use the words ‘elegant’ and ‘stylish’ to describe an activity monitor, but that’s exactly what I consider the Shine, by Misfit, to be. It’s a unique tracker that is fun to wear and looks great, whether I have it on my wrist or my shirt collar. Best Buy & Shine gave me one of these gorgeous trackers, and I’ve been using it for a few weeks now!
Designed to inspire people to become more active, Shine is an elegant activity monitor that you can wear anywhere! So how does it work? Simple… you download the Shine app onto your phone, synch it to your device, set goals for how much you want to complete in a day, put it on, and get MOVING!
A halo of 12 LED lights let you know how much progress you’ve made, and you can synch it to your phone to see even more information. Check out this video to see how it SHINES when I reach my goal for the day! So pretty.
Shine helps you monitor your overall health with these features:
• Activity tracking – it tracks a number of activities, including swimming, biking, tennis, soccer, etc.
• A step tracker, which measures steps and distance traveled.
• Records how well you sleep.
• Estimates calories burned.
• Clock – just double tap the screen to see the time!
• Waterproof, up to 50 meters, or 164 feet, so you can swim with the monitor on.
I love that no charging is required, since Shine runs on a coin cell battery which lasts about 4 months. I just put it on and don’t think about it anymore! And with a weight of 9.4g, it’s so light I forget I’m wearing it! It includes a magnet clip that you can attach to your clothes, hip, or shoes.
Also available for purchase are leather bands, a sport band, and a necklace, all of which allow you to wear Shine to different locations and for various occasions (formal, business, casual, sleeping, swimming). Made of aircraft-grade aluminum material, it looks like it’ll be quite durable, but what I really love is that it literally looks like you’re wearing a piece of jewelry!
Shine is a gorgeous device that will empower people to be more proactive about their personal health. It’s exclusively available in additional colors at Best Buy, including Silver, Black, Champagne and Topaz. They’re stunning! This would make such a wonderful holiday gift!
