Product Description

The Misfit Shine is a sleek personal monitor that syncs with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and the free Shine app to track your activity level. You can wear it anywhere on your body for any type of activity. Simply tap it and a cluster of lights glows through the metal shell to indicate your progress toward your daily goal.


Use the free Shine app to set your goals. Then sync the data collected by your Shine monitor to the app by simply placing it on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch screen. Any time you want, you can tap the app to see your progress. It's all done without buttons, cables, or recharging.


Built to last a lifetime, Shine is carved from aircraft-grade aluminum. An easy-to-change battery provides power for up to four months. And the unit is water-resistant, so you can include swimming in your training regimen.


Crafted like a piece of jewellery, Shine is a tiny disc with a lovely halo of lights that light up in relation to your activity level. It complements any style clothing. You can wear it anywhere-on your wrist, shoe, bra strap, belt, or around your neck. It comes with a one-size-fits-all Sport Band for your wrist.

I was a bit cautious about investing in a fitness tracker - I knew there were quite a few on the market and didn't know how I should have made a decision on which the right one for me was. In the end I settled on the Shine for a few reasons:

1. Its much more discrete than the others - the fuelband put my off straight away as its just too bulky and the flex looks like a cheap bit of plastic so that was a no go
2. You dont have to take it off. Lots of the Withings reviews comment on how annoying it is to have to charge so this was a big plus that it's just got a battery
3. Its 100% waterproof. Again the others can't all be taken swimming/shower and people who own the flex say that it goes all gunky and gross if you wear it in the shower - again I wanted one that I knew I never had to take off!
4. It can track cycling - I have now used it a few times by putting it on my sock using the magnetic clasp and it is great as I ride into work every morning.

As soon as I started using the shine I loved it - I have gotten so into hitting my daily target it's a little unhealthy (yes running on the spot before I've gone to bed has actually happened!). the interface on the app is very simple and clearly displays your goal, your steps etc.

The calories count seemed to be showing very high so I emailed their customer support about it and they said that it includes the calories your body naturally burns as well as the exercise you do on top (i.e. you burn calories naturally when you sleep so these are on the count).

All in all would defiantly recommend. I am very happy with my purchase (am thinking about buying it as a Xmas pressie too so might be back on Amazon sooner than I expected!)

This was my first purchase of an activity tracker and I was not disappointed!
Until recently, I felt activity monitors were ugly, bulky and impractical.
The Shine, however, is attractive to look at and has many features that make it practical to use.

I have been very happy with my purchase mainly for the following reasons:

1. Easy and enjoyable to wear - and being waterproof and comfortable, I can forget I am wearing it for days! I can wear it on my shoe when cycling, on my wrist when swimming (being waterproof I never need to take it off) and wear it on a necklace when I would rather wear a different watch and not have two on show. I normally wear it on my wrist though, as it is so lightweight I cannot feel it, thin so it doesn't catch on clothes and attractive to look at. I also enjoy using the smarter leather strap.

2. Battery life - unlike other activity trackers, I can keep the Shine on for months with no charging required. I'd much prefer to buy a replacement battery every few months than have to remember to charge it each night.

3. The app - It is visually appealing and user friendly, giving good guidance on how to set targets by giving examples of how much time walking, running or swimming your chosen points target equates to. I spent the first few days adjusting the target based on how much activity I achieved, which was quick and easy to do. Another bonus is being able to tap the Shine three times to tag and start tracking different activities than walking. For example, I have chosen for my Shine to track tennis if I tap three times. I can also choose an activity retrospectively on the app when looking back at my day's activity - If I hold my finger down on an activity, I can change it to a different activity from the list. This makes sure the activity tracking is as accurate as possible.

I would highly recommend the Shine. It is stylish and practical, and makes tracking fitness targets enjoyable!

DO NOT BUY. Bought this for my son -in- law for Christmas. This activity monitor popped out of the very flimsy plastic strap several times before finally being lost forever. A more robust strap is available but why is it not fitted in the first place!! You are unaware the monitor needs this until its lost! Contacted Amazon for a refund but not remotely interested just gave me Misfit's phone number which appears to be unavailable. VERY DISAPPOINTED and will now be buying my son in law another present but not another activity monitor

The Misfit Shine is a fantastic looking little gadget, it's a pity they couldn't call it the 'Pebble' as that's what it resembles. In the box you get everything you need and setup is very easy, you'll have it up and tracking in less than 10 minutes.

This has been really well designed and allows you to wear this in a number of different ways. Using the provided magnetic strap you can pick between wearing this on thin clothing (such as a t-shirt), around a belt loop, or on your shoe laces. The magnet is very strong and feels like it will keep the Shine easily in place. Alternatively it can be worn like a watch by popping it into the included wrist strap (this is my preferred choice).

Once in place you can forget about it, it's nice and light and happily sits on your arm logging your activity. A big bonus over competitors is that as this doesn't have a screen it doesn't need need charging every day. The Shine has a user replaceable battery and no charging ports, which gives it another advantage in that it is waterproof, you can wear this in the shower or when swimming.

The companion app is really easy to use and displays data in a clear manner, but that's mainly due to the simplistic nature of the data. I wasn't too keen on the weight section, you need to manually enter your details. It would be nice to see Misfit developing this app to accept data from smart scales which are already on the market to save having to update it manually. This is really where the Shine falls down as the app isn't really that useful, it tells you about steps and sleep patterns, but nothing beyond this. I was expecting it might point something out about my sleep, or give some sort of feedback, instead it just makes a little graph.
