After a Month… Misfit Shine
I have been wearing the Misfit Shine for over a month so decided it’s time to let the world know what I think about it.
Comfort – 5 stars. I am picky about what I wear on my wrist because I work on my computer so much and hate it when a band gets in the way. The Shine band is soft and the monitor so light that most of the time I forgot I was wearing it.
Motivation – 4 stars. I found earning the lights was a fun way to keep motivated. I really didn’t think it would do much, but more than once I found myself running up and down the stairs at 10:00 at night because I needed one more light.
App – 2 stars. The app was fine, and that was about all I can say about it. It gave the basics such as step count and calories burned, but I would have liked to have seen more.
Durability – 5 stars. The band is so soft and the latch doesn’t look like much, but I never had it come unsnapped. I worked hard helping my husband with various remodeling projects we are working on.
The conditions were dusty and dirty and I was dragging drywall to the dumpster, running a jackhammer taking some tile glue off the floor. (FYI, jackhammering is a GREAT way to rack up those lights fast!
Also, dragging old drywall down steps, major points! )
The band could be covered with dust and dirt, and I could just wipe it off and it looked as good as new.
Battery – 5 stars. One of the great things about the Shine is you don’t have to recharge the battery. I have had it for over a month, and when I check the battery level, it still shows full.
Other – Some of the accessories for the Shine are just awesome. The fact that it can be taken out of the band and put in other devices has put it in a class of its own. The Misfit website has everything from socks and shirts with special pockets to very stylish jewelry with Swarovski crystals.
The Misfit Shine proclaims “Motivation at a Glance” and I have found that it is true. I did find myself wishing for more functions than just the lights, but overall, it is a fun way to remind myself to get more exercise.
