Reviews around price (4.48 of 5)

  • I am a little disappointed with it, but the price was good
  • The online reviews of this one were good and the price was right
  • Check out the features, you won't get a better product for a better price.
  • Still at half the price of the others I lived with clips failing and even figured out a safety chain because if you use clip you will lose the device unless you add a safety chain
  • Price is amazingly cheap

Reviews around look (4.38 of 5)

  • I specifically wanted one that I could wear to work, without worrying about a cheap looking plastic watch/tracker
  • I recommend the Shine if you are looking for a durable, sleek, and simple device.
  • I wanted an activity tracker for my birthday, but didn't like the look of most of them, as they are all somewhat bulky
  • The shine is very nice looking, but it has many downfalls
  • but if you are looking for a good activity tracker I would recommend garmen.

Reviews around feature (4.02 of 5)

  • Not very user friendly, had to return item 3 times before I got one to work, features very limited, back hard to get off to change battery
  • Very unhelpful as by then you have to start trying to sync all over again
  • I love the band and t chose the Misfit a second time because it doesn't have to be recharged and is more elegant looking than most fitness tracker.
  • Sure you wont have some of the more advanced features but in my eyes just the waterproof feature is worth it.
  • Misfit: This is the only truly waterproof one of the bunch, and even though I don't swim regularly it's an important feature to me

Reviews around sleep (3.94 of 5)

  • Coupe weeks later my Misfit did not record my sleep at all, I have zero hours in my app.
  • (The sleep tracking works very well - the Shine does a good job of sensing sleep and the app shows the data clearly.)
  • I now am much more aware of getting a good nights sleep and have changed my light out to an earlier time.
  • A basic, well-priced activity and sleep tracker that is waterproof
  • Data is lost fairly frequently, and it will not automatically count your sleep if you fall asleep during the day.

Reviews around way (3.86 of 5)

  • Either way I consider their platform a fail due to this
  • I have also worn it swimming and the monitor works very well that way also.
  • more a fault of the strap and the way it holds the actual device, but still that leaves me with a lost device.
  • My only criticism is that it pops out of the wrist band and it very easy to lose (as you will see from other reviews)
  • I was excited thinking it to be an easy way to count my

Reviews around fact (3.78 of 5)

  • I love that I don't have to charge it, and I also love the fact the you can use it as a watch
  • I love the band and t chose the Misfit a second time because it doesn't have to be recharged and is more elegant looking than most fitness tracker.
  • Personally, I love the fact that you don't have to charge the battery and just have to replace it after 6 months or so
  • My 1 star are for all the agony and pain with this product and the fact that Misfit Support has not been able to find a possible resolution in more than 4 months
  • My only criticism is that it pops out of the wrist band and it very easy to lose (as you will see from other reviews)

Reviews around work (3.61 of 5)

  • Bought a second band and that one works; Misfit should make
  • I have also worn it swimming and the monitor works very well that way also.
  • (The sleep tracking works very well - the Shine does a good job of sensing sleep and the app shows the data clearly.)
  • I found that it was pretty poor at measuring real work or strenuous climbs, pretty much just measuring your steps the same whether you were walking on level ground, uphill, digging ditches, making love, etc
  • I have a pretty sedentary work-life, so I don't get around much during the day

  • I was not doing anything rough with it... and now with the Misfit Shine Speedo, it just fell off its own wrist
  • I purchased a Misfit shine March 29, 2015 and I was very happy with the product

Reviews around design (3.13 of 5)

  • Beautiful, sleek, stylish design - extremely comfortable on the wrist
  • Seems like they could design something very simple that would not compromise the sleek design
  • I like the design of this so much better than the FitBit, but I now regret my decision, because I know the FitBit has a much better track record of dependability

Reviews around clasp (2.90 of 5)

  • Ok, so I tried just now and it worked as it should, showing progress and then time
  • After reading the numerous reviews and looking at other activity monitors I decided to go with the Misfit Shine as I wanted something that would integrate with my business clothing, provide accurate readings for activities, monitor my sleep cycle, and I really wanted something that was waterproof.
  • The magnetic clasp or sport band is very flimsy, and after a swimming session, the magnetic clasp came undone and is now lost somewhere, and the watch can't be too far away from the phone when trying to sync, so it makes it nearly impossible for me to find it
  • I decided it was too bulky to wear alongside my misfit and wanted to try out the magnetic clasp on a night out and lost it the first time I used it!After reading some of the reviews i saw that some people were installing the misfit into the wrist band wrong and even saw a very misleading picture of someone using the magnetic clasp to secure it to the band
  • I bought the so-called "Speedo" version of Shine from Misfit site directly in Sep as soon as it's available, and was highly expecting it

Reviews around wristband (2.77 of 5)

  • A few times it worked as it should, tap twice, show progress
  • The tracker is beautiful, however all that quality is lost when used with a Misfit wristband or clip.
  • After reading the numerous reviews and looking at other activity monitors I decided to go with the Misfit Shine as I wanted something that would integrate with my business clothing, provide accurate readings for activities, monitor my sleep cycle, and I really wanted something that was waterproof.
  • The first one I had, the wristband broke while I was at
  • This is by far my favorite fitness tracker I've tried both for the sleek fit and comfort as well as for accuracy

Reviews around time (2.39 of 5)

  • I actually like that it only shows progress dots (and time dots) on the face
  • The time of day is accurate and it does keep track of steps well.
  • Each time, I have lost whatever count was on the device in the process of fixing it
  • Accurate tracking of steps, activity, sleep; watch keeps time very well
  • Most of the time my first attempt to sync it will fail, and many times the second will also

Reviews around phone numb (1.00 of 5)

  • There was a form to fill out which included a mandatory blank for my phone number.
  • I've asked for a phone number so I could talk to someone, no response
  • Lastly, all their customer service is done via email at 5am, I went online to try and get a phone number to actually speak with
  • He contacted the Misfit customer support team (they do not provide a phone number to call as far as we can tell so you are stuck sending in emails that don't receive a response for about 24 hours, if you get
  • So they "upgraded" it again to included a lovely (NOT) overlay that pops up when your device and the shine won't sync that prevents the syncing by blocking the screen and wants you to (1) Talk to them via email from the device and give your phone number where they can call you - soooooo not interested in talking to them or them to me (I have bad, bad things to say to them) and (2) Wants to know if the stupid overlay is helpful
