Shine Activity Monitor Teardown #WearableWednesday

The Shine by Misfit Wearables is an activity monitor that tracks your steps, general activity level, quality of sleep, and tells time. It uses bluetooth low energy (BTLE) to communicate to the (iOS only) app that helps you track your progress. And its waterproof! We wanted to open it up and see how it works. Check out more photos in the guide on the Adafruit Learning System.

  1. Mechanically the shine is amazing, and is one of the reasons why I was one of the first to support their product. However after using mine for several months now, I find their software very much lacking. Two of my friends bought Fitbits after seeing my Shine. They bought the fitbit because they had android phones. It turns our the fitbit tracks so much more data, such as sleeping and actual steps walked. The shine seems to only track a rough estimation of your activity. I have found that the Nike app alone works just about as well.
