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

Misfit Shine, Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker 3.6 5 11 11
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
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
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
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
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
A good product Overall this is a good product, its great because it can be worn at all times due to the fact it is waterproof which you don't really find in many activity trackers. It works well but the only downside in my case is that sometimes I have to to tap the item a million times before it allows me to track my progress throughout the day. Maybe there is a fault with mine... 17 June 2014
Great product, design not fit for purpose though!! I bought one of these after researching the activity tracker market at length. I was very pleased with it, it did just what I wanted, was an attractive design, comfortable to wear, easy to synch and didn't overload me with information I didn't need - but then it came out of the wristband while I was walking the dog and is now lost. I'd only had it for four days, had looked after it carefully and checked it was fitted into the wristband correctly before I went out but during the walk I looked at my wrist and realised the tracker had fallen out of the band at some point. I think it's a fab product but the wristband simply doesn't hold it in securely enough so although I loved it, I won't be buying another one as I think the same thing would just happen again - very sad :-( 23 May 2014
Absolutely Brilliant I'm not a gambling man, but I took a gamble with the Misfit Shine, my gamble did pay off. I purchased this just after Christmas and waited a few months before posting my review and I am very satisfied with this product, the features and everything it includes are of a very high standard, I wear my shine everywhere I go and keep track of all my activities, being a cycling enthusiast, I was overwhelmed when I realised it automatically realised I was cycling, I use it to monitor my running, swimming and cycling, the sleep monitoring facility is awesome. The negative thing about this product is.......oh wait there is none!!!! 20 May 2014
