Evaluation

Misfit Shine is made of aluminum used for aircraft and provides a moderate polish and comfortable touch, and more than anything, strong durability. This product is waterproof and has various accessories so it can be worn. We can imagine that it could be used in a wide range of situations, such as swimming, more so than other wearable physical activity monitors, which is an attractive point of this product. It has a minimal interface and it is easy to operate. Another highlight is that activity progress and time can be confirmed by light patterns. As this is a device that can be worn all the time, we highly rate this design. At the same time, an abundance of information can be obtained from pairing it with smartphones and it calculates daily activities using various methods. The way it links to the application and the application itself are simple and superb. We highly rate this design that continuously supports users over a long period of time.
