Introducing the Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition powered by Speedo, the first fitness tracker aimed at swimmers. This Misfit has been designed to accurately track your swimming and it also functions out of the water to track your everyday activities as well as your sleep patterns. The Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition is made out of durable aircraft-grade anodized aluminium which is a unique pale silver colour known as Pure.
What makes this product special?
Here are a few attributes that make this product unique:
Does the Misfit Shine swimmers edition look different?
The design itself will stay the same as other Misfit devices; however we are offering the Misfit Shine Swimmer's Edition in a brand new colour called Pure, an exclusive combination of silver and white.
How does it work?
A 3-axis accelerometer is used; this gathers data on movement in three different directions, a certain amount of times per second. Proprietary algorithms, developed by both Speedo and Misfit, take this data and turn it into readable and understandable information on the Misfit app.
How do I use it/set it up?
To set up your Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition you need to first download the Misfit app onto to your phone or tablet and then register an account, you will automatically be taken through the steps to track your activity, set goals and visualise your progress. We recommend that you use the Action Clip to ensure that your Shine stays securely attached to the wrist strap. The Action Clip can be found within the inner sleeve of the Shine packaging.

How do I sync?
You will first need to download the Misfit app onto your phone and turn on your Bluetooth; you will also need to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to sync data from your device. Note that the Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition can only be linked to one Misfit account at a time; this is in order to protect device ownership.
What does the device come with?
The device comes in a white and silver colour strap combination called “Pure” that is exclusive to the Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition and also a black sport band and a clasp, with other additional accessories available to buy online.
Is there another Misfit Shine that counts laps?
At the moment it is only the Misfit Shine Swimmer’s Edition powered by Speedo, which features lap counting.
Why have Misfit and Speedo collaborated?
Misfit Shine has always been popular with swimmers due to it being waterproof. Swimming for fitness is a growing trend, so it felt like a great time to partner and develop a fitness tracker that automatically counts laps, is aimed at swimmers and can also transition well to life out of the water.
Is swimming good for my fitness?
Swimming is great for your health and fitness. The latest Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SIFA) research shows that swimming is the fastest fitness trend. For more information on the health and benefits of swimming, check out the statistics on the CDC website:
