I received the Shine by Misfit for free, in exchange for this activity monitoring device review.
Everybody’s got them these days! A wearable sports tracker, that is!
My friends, co-workers and even my mom and dad have these new activity tracking accessories. Do you?
Whether it is a tracking watch, bracelet, necklace or clip on – they are a booming rage! I had never had an activity tracker before this chance from Best Buy, who provided me the new elegant wearable tracker called Shine, by Misfit in exchange for my review posting.
After the last few weeks of exploring the device, testing it and wearing it around – I am super excited to tell you about the Shine activity monitor device and why I love the design and technology!
Pretty Fly for a Shine!
The Shine is a gorgeous wearable tracking monitor! It is elegant and attractive. I don’t feel like it is too bulky, manly or intense. After all, I am in a dress half the time, it is nice not to have a big, chunky or distracting watch. It looks great on my wrist – it’s a 1 size fits most wristband, that I adjust down to fit my wrist and wear all day without hassle.
Shine is exclusively available in additional colors at Best Buy including Silver, Black, Champagne and Topaz.
This new activity monitor can be worn anywhere! I mean anywhere! Sleeping, swimming, running and traveling! It is completely waterproof – so wearing it in the shower or hot tub by accident (who’s ever done this?) is no longer a problem!
I prefer to wear it like a watch, but that is not the only option. The Shine can be worn with various accessories – a sports band, clasp, leather band or a necklace! The variety of ways to easily wear this monitor means that it can be worn comfortably and easily for various occasion – formal, business, casual, sleeping, swimming and traveling.
Wear it where: shirt, pants, necklace, brooch, bra, arm, wrist, hip, shoe!
I have worn the Shine for various activities, and it is secure through both vigorous and easy movements! The fit is secure, yet comfortable. When I wear it with the clasp, I don’t even know it is there!
But the BIGGEST reason it is unlimited wearable? Because there are no cords. No charging. It is just operated by a watch battery that needs to be changed every 4-6 months! I love cordless – it’s awesome. That’s petty convenient and slick, no?

How to Track your Activities:
With the Shine app (available on the App Store and soon on Google Play) you can set your daily activity goal tracker, sync your daily activities, monitor your progress, get insights and more!
You can also just tap the Shine to find out your daily progress.
Okay, and here is the coolest thing ever. EVER. I found it easier to sync the Shine than any other wearable tracker. Syncing the Shine with your smart phone is the easiest thing ever! EVER. Just place the Shine on your smartphone screen to sync the data. No really, just set it on the phone…it syncs, it is unreal!
An added bonus is that the Shine can also double as a watch using the shine app. It has 12 LED lights on the front face which indicate the time for you – a double duty product!
Just putting it on, got me inspired!
It is funny how just the process of putting this device on my person made me want to be more active! I think that is the best part! I want to set my goals, I want to get moving and reach my goals. In fact, all the charts and tracking get me excited about overachieving them! Let’s just say, I got my move on now!
And that is just what Misfit intended when they designed the Shine! They wanted to inspire people to get out there – and get active! And well… Mission accomplished, Misfit!
Shine is a gorgeous device that will empower people to be more proactive about their personal health.
Last thoughts on Misfit Shine
It is the ONLY monitor that is water resistant (up to 50 meters)! Great for tracking when swimming in the ocean or pool. This Misfit Shine is both lightweight, gorgeous and can be worn in many different ways. I am crazy about the Topaz and Champagne colors only available at Best Buy for the Holidays! Overall, I think it is one of the best activity monitors – for counting steps, inspiring an active lifestyle and setting goals to achieve them!
