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.

What does the device come with?

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?
