BURLINGAME, CA October 20, 2015— Today Misfit announced Shine 2, the next generation of the award-winning Shine Fitness and Sleep Monitor. Fully redesigned and enhanced, Shine 2 leverages the best of Shine’s elegant aesthetic and introduces powerful new functionality.
Shine two tracks activity and sleep more accurately with a 3-axis accelerometer and newly added 3-axis magnetometer. Users can now easily see progress and tell time in a halo of rainbow-colored lights, or get motivated with Misfit Move, a feature that encourages you to be active with a vibrational nudge. Text and call notifications and a silent vibe alarm are also new with Shine 2.
Shine 2 incorporates more advanced hardware and firmware—which means dramatically improved touch responsiveness with capacitive sensing technology, faster syncing, and extended Bluetooth range. It’s 12 lights display over 16 million colours and are bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight.
Compatible with Misfit Link, the groundbreaking software experience, Shine 2 is more than just an activity tracker—it’s now a remote to connect with the world around you. Communicate with friends, turn your lights on, change your music, take a selfie, and more, all with a triple tap.
Shine two references Shine’s iconic original design but features an even thinner aircraft grade aluminium body, while retaining its signature 6-month battery life, 50 meters water resistance, and modular design. Wear it anywhere, all the time, without having to charge it.
“We’ve packed a lot into Shine 2, adding more functionality to an even thinner form factor with the same battery life, ”said Adam Mack, Misfit’s Director of Mechanical Design. “We didn’t compromise on craftsmanship or the user experience.”
Shine 2 comes in Rose Gold and Carbon Black, is now available for purchase on misfit.com, and will be available in retail locations worldwide in November.
