Misfit Shine review

You will get a more correct result when you wear a fitness tracker on your clothe as compared to when you wear it on your wrist, because your arms move naturally, which may lead to providing inaccurate data since the movement in the arm can be taken as a step, or movement on both can be stopped at the same time, like when gripping a bag strap, and this can lead to getting incorrect results. Hence, Misfit comes with a clasp that can be used to attach the device to the clothe, and this is very useful when you are at the gym house.

Apart from being in the world list of advanced trackers, it is special in its feature of time telling. Just a double tap of its face will give you a report shown in percentage when you make use of a ring of LED’s by the edge that is being displayed in form of percentage, at the start of your activity, you will notice a single light and at the completion, you will notice twelve lights. when it has shown how you are making progress, then the time will also be shown to you with the same LED’s, it will leave two lights which is representing the time and will not display numbers. Shine’s method of displaying time can be a bit confusing and for us we believe that is its flaw.

    I really like the idea and design of the Misfit and how portable it is. However I think I may wait until Moov comes out as they are both similar products and of a similar price. Have you had a chance to look at the Moov yet?

      Thanks for your comment, no we haven’t had a chance to fully review the Moov yet, but it’s coming up, and it looks like a great bit of kit
