Video: Misfit Shine Wireless Activity Tracker

Misfit Shine
I sit in front of the computer all day, so I’m reasonably certain that I’m not being active enough. It might help if I had a simple way to track my activity and ensure that I’m reaching my daily goals. The Misfit Shine aims to provide that.

The Misfit Shine looks like a smoothed-out river rock and it’s about the size of a quarter. It’s designed to track your activity over the course of the day, making sure that you’re being active enough. You can wear it with the wristband, a clasp or a brooch. The Shine is made from strong aluminum and should be able to withstand daily abuse, including being waterproof.

The cool thing is that if you just tap on the Shine, it’ll display your progress by lighting up a series of LEDs. What’s more, it syncs with your iPhone without using any cables or wires. Just put the Shine on your iPhone with the app running and it does the rest. You don’t even need to pair it. I’m not at all sure how that works, but that’s awfully cool. The battery lasts about six months.

The Indiegogo campaign had a funding goal of $100,000, but as of this writing, they’ve already well exceeded $350,000 in support with nearly a whole month to go. You can secure your own with a minimum contribution of $79 with delivery expected for March 2013.
