I received a Misfit Shine Activity Monitor for free through a Best Buy review program. All opinions are my own.
Smartphones have made it very easy to keep track of our health and physical activity. And when we keep track of how much we exercise, we tend to do more, because we want to reach or exceed the goals we create. Being able to wear the monitor in a watchband or necklace in the new Shine Wearable Activity Monitor makes it easy to remember to use everyday.
How Does the Shine by Misfit Wearables work?
It is really very easy. It comes in this really cool case that looks like a space ship. The only thing you have to do is take the Shine out of the case, open it up with the little tool (very easy) place the battery in it, close it, you will hear a click and you are done. (As easy as that is, I was confused because they didn’t use the word Shine. So I thought they were talking about opening up the cover of the case everything came in. I since spoke to them and they are going to make that clearer.)
After the battery is in the Shine, it is now ready. Then all you do is download the Shine app from the App Store (It currently only works with iOS) and you are ready to go. As long as you are wearing the Shine Activity Tracker and have your phone with you, all your activity will be tracked. Even swimming, because your Shine is water-resistant for swimming!
To see your activity, just go to the app, and all the information on any type of activity you did, plus calories burned, will be right there. It couldn’t be easier. You can check for the day or the week. There is no charging, no plugging in, nothing for you to do except exercise and get in shape. When the battery eventually runs out, you replace it.
What colors is the Shine Wearable Activity Monitor available in?
This is one of the reasons that you want to buy the Misfit Shine at Best Buy. Everywhere else the Shine only comes in Black or Gray. Best Buy is the only seller of the Shine Activity Tracker in Topaz and Champagne colors. They really are beautiful especially if you plan on wearing your Shine in a necklace. Speaking of which…
What are my Shine Activity Monitor’s Wearable options:
Another reason to shop for the Shine Activity Tracker and accessories at Best Buy. The basic wearables are the Sport Wristband and a choker necklace for the Misfit Shine. However Best Buy also offers two leather band watches in black and tan.
What else can the Shine Wearable Activity Monitor do?
It is also a watch, so if you choose to wear it in a watch band, you can actually get the time. It works by little lights shining. When I first read the directions, I thought that I would never figure it out. By the third try it became the easiest thing to do.
I love many things about my Shine Wearable Activity Tracker, but what I like the most, is that because my tracker is now also my watch, I never forget it when I go out. I am also much less likely to lose it. And when I’m wearing it, I tend to walk more to get my numbers up.
I also love that it actually looks like a fashionable piece of jewelry. I really am tempted get the Topaz or Champagne Shine Activity monitor, or maybe just add the necklace as a second wearable. Check out the Best Buy website and see how you would customize your Shine Wearable Activity Monitor and Watch!
