Misfit, maker of the unobtrusive Shine fitness tracker, is freshening its flagship product with the Shine 2 — smaller, with color LEDs and haptic feedback, and incorporating the control functions that the company’s been rolling out with other products.
The Shine 2 is 8mm thick at the center and about 3mm thick at the edge; the bad news is that it won’t fit any accessories you may already have. The 12 LEDs around the circumference of the top are now brighter and can display colors. Initially, it comes in black and rose gold. And as before, it’s powered by a replaceable coin battery with an expected 6-month life.
Misfit’s first product to incorporate home control functions was the $20 Flash Link smart button. The Shine 2 has the same functions, which now work with Logitech’s Harmony universal remotes and with the popular IFTTT website.
The Shine 2 is available immediately at misfit.com for $99 — the original Shine’s original price but $20 more than the current price — and at retail worldwide on November 1.
