Misfit Shine, Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker, Black

We like it because...

simple and attractive, not only is it a great way of tracking your fitness, but it's easy to use and looks fantastic however you wear it.

Product information

Misfit Shine is a discreet wireless activity tracker with style. Shine features sleek aesthetics that will look great however you chose to carry it. It doesn't look like a wireless activity tracker, sized just slightly larger than a ten pence piece, and can be worn on your wrist using the supplied rubber wristband, or on your clothing with the magnetic clasp.

Tapping Shine will illuminate a cluster of glowing lights around the edge. These lights show you your progress in simple terms, with the aim to make each light shine by the end of the day. You can sync your progress and set goals with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or Android device through the free Misfit app, and even syncing is simple. There's no cables or buttons involved, all you need to do is place Shine on the face of your device's touch screen to establish a connection.

Long lasting
Shine is designed for the rough and the smooth. It's made from aircraft-grade aluminium, so will survive bumps and scrapes. It's also water-resistant up to 50 meters, so swimming can be included in your training regime. Shine runs on CR2032 batteries, providing power for up to six months use, and comes with a simple tool to help you get safely inside to replace the battery without sacrificing its ultra-resistant qualities.

With Shine and the Misfit app, you can track a variety of activities to track your fitness. Possible activities include walking, running, cycling, swimming and even sleeping. The app will analyse the data that Shine provides and estimate calories burnt and distance travelled. Shine can also use its lights to show you the time, so you won't lose track while on a run.

Key Features:

  • No charging- Runs on a regular coin cell battery for 4-6 months.
  • 50 meters water resistant- Great for swimming and built to last a lifetime.
  • Magic sync- With Bluetooth, Shine syncs simply by placing it on the screen.
  • All metal- Precision crafted from aircraft grade aluminium.
  • Incredibly accurate- Advanced machine learning & sensor algorithms give incredible performance.
  • Wearable to any occasion- Wear to a black tie event or a pool party. Designed to be so comfortable you won't know you're wearing it.
  • Great for tracking cycling- Unlike other wrist-worn devices, you can put Shine on your shorts to track cycling.
  • More than just a step counter- Tracks calories, distance, and sleep (deep & light).

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dissapointed I bought this because it was one of the only waterproof smart monitors that was in my price bracket & I have been pleased with the features offered as well as the appearance. HOWEVER --- I am now on my third monitor and I have still not got one that works properly. The first one had a battery that leaked. (Or rather two of them. I assumed that it was the battery to start with & then, after the second failure, realised that something else must be wrong.) The other two have been un-openable, either by myself, or by the nice people at John Lewis. In fact I have to admit that I got so angry with this last one that I have damaged the cavity that you are meant to insert the opening tool into, but only because, like the others, it didn’t fit. Anyway. A fun and handy piece of equipment if you can get it to work properly, but I’ve given up now. 14 March 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Didn't live up to expectations I bought the Misfit Shine based on the reviews and the functions it offered, it was just what I was after. It looked a bit unusual so that appealed too. To cut a long story short, I had the item for less than a year and the disk popped out of the rubber wrist band on numerous occasions until it happened for the last time where I lost it. It would even come off when I put on a coat, the wrist band is no near strong enough, way too fragile. Overall, the product is very good, but what lets it down enormously is how easily it pops out of the wrist band. I would like to get a new one but until the wrist band design is improved, I will be steering clear. 22 January 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fell out of wristband Was just given this as a Christmas present. Had been wearing it for 4 days on the rubber wristband. It was correctly fitted into the band. Was just walking round the shops, looked at my wrist and it was gone. I'm gutted. Not had time to try out the features so can't comment on any of that. I see from the reviews that this has happened to other people and John Lewis said it must be an anomaly but Ithis looks more like a design fault. Don't know whether to risk replacing it , too expensive if it happens again. 28 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Love it. I use it to measure my sleep pattern. It lets me know how many restful hours of sleep I get or don't get. Just waiting to get the product that goes on the mattress. The food log on it is a great idea if you can remember to take a picture of everything you eat even the littlest snack. 19 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Keeps me moving I've been using this for a while now, and whilst far from perfect, it is very good. Synching is a bit hit and miss, which can be frustrating. But usually synchs within 2 or 3 attempts. Accuracy - I'm still not conviced that this is 100% accurate. My wife has a Fitbit and even when we spend the day together doing exactly the same activity, the Fitbit reads a few 1000 steps higher than the shine. (Could be the Fitbit though that doesn't count accurately though) And in the morning, before I even get out of bed, it sometimes reads over 100 steps, and I'm still laying in bed! Tapping the Shine to check on progress too can be a bit hit and miss. It's also frustrating but only briefly. It does seem secure enough to me, but I'm always checking it to make sure it's still there. Overall I think that this is brilliant, for the sole reason that it keeps me active, more active than before, and that is the while point of it. Generally, it's very easy to use and the phone app is clear too. I'd happily recommend to a friend. 11 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant waterproof, simple to use tracker Very easy set-up with my iphone. I walk and swim regularly and the data is easy to synch and understand. Been looking for a tracker to use in the pool and this is ideal with extras, can set your own targets, monitor your sleep hours and levels, and lots more without being too technical. Love the fact that it runs on battery and doesn't need charging all the time. Excellent delivery service from John Lewis and more detailed user manuals freely available online. Would recommend! 22 July 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fell out of wrist band and was lost I bought this in April from John Lewis. It is attractive and very accurate for both steps and sleep. I like the fact that it was waterproof and did not have to be removed for showers etc. as I tend to lose things. However, it is lost anyway because it was not secure in the rubber wrist band and simply fell out during a run. I also found it very difficult to read the dial in sunlight and it doesn't always respond to the taps. It has a nice interface with the Android app. I enjoyed using it and used it everyday but won't be replacing it due to the fact that it cannot be secured well. 20 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shine activity monitor I bought this product as a replacement for my Fitbug Air as it had more choice in terms of where you could wear it and was less bulky. My Fitbug Air also incurred a monthly charge for uploading steps and use of the website or app. Initially I was very impressed with this product as it was easy to fit into the wrist strap which is the way I intended to wear it most. I did find the app disappointing as it offered very little information & did not show you very much or offer much motivation. I have used this product alongside my Fitbug Air as I have just paid my subscription for the month and was astonished just how inaccurate the results for step count were. A few hundred I may have been able to cope with but this was thousands of steps out. Yesterday for example my old device stated I had done 1300 steps whereas the Shine had stated I had completed 7900. Maybe this product is more accurate using it in a pocket or clipped to your waist but it then defeats the object for why I bought it in the first place. After having this product for just a week I will be returning this product to John Lewis ASAP for a refund as it is not fit for purpose and carrying on with my old device in which I can trust. 13 July 2014
