Engadget Summary

The Misfit Shine might be a stylish fitness tracker, but there isn't enough substance behind it to make it stand out in a crowded field. The look and feel of the Shine has TechHive calling it "sleek and attractive," feeling that it's "more like jewelry than tech." That stylish casing is also waterproof up to 50 meters, which PC Mag says is a "big plus" over competing trackers that break after one accidental wash. Unfortunately, that minimalism means the tracker lacks a display, so you can't check your stats on the go. The Shine is also limited in a lot of other ways as well -- it only works with iOS, and even though it's wireless, CNET says it "needs to be held close to phone screen to sync." As a first attempt the Misfit Shine is good enough, but they'll need to work on a few things, like adding Android compatibility, a display and picking up some third-party support. At $120, it's asking for a bit too much compared to products with more depth like the Fitbit Force and Withings Pulse. Unless, of course, you need a fitness tracker that accessorizes with your evening wear. In that case, the Shine has you set.
