I have been addicted to researching about tech wearables recently and have this particular fascination for fitness wearables. Not a lot of people will understand this fascination now, but in a few months, i’m sure that most (if not all) of us will have one one, much like how it was with smart phones. I am particularly hypnotized by the new brand that a dear friend brought into the Philippines. She is the exclusive distributor of Misfit Wearables in the Philippines.
Misfit Wearables was a pioneer in the industry of wearable sensory technology which was founded in 2011 by Sonny Yu, John Sculley (former CEO of Apple and Pepsi), and Sridhar Iyengar (co-founder and CTO of AgaMatrix). The Misfit Shine was the first product off its production line – a lightweight, elegant activity tracker designed to fit the lifestyle of individuals with a penchant for fitness, and the great news is that it is now in the Philippines!
On the same day of the press launch, my mom was asking me if daddy needed something like the Misfit Shine since he already had an amazing heart rate monitor. I told her that the Misfit Shine is more than a heart rate monitor. The wearable is actually connected to a mobile application where you can view your statistics. It’s really a personal activity monitor that tracks your activity and sleep.
The wearable actually has a mobile application that keeps track and shows you your statistics. I’m a very goal oriented person and I love that everything revolves around the personal goal that you set for yourself. Like for example, these windows show you that the goal is to get 8 hours of sleep. The circle around the data shows you how far are you from achieving your goal.
It also shows you your statistics on your activities log for the day. It shows you the total number of steps, calories burned and distance that you have covered.
The interface is really simple. I also love the design of the wearable itself. It looks very classy! Also, it can double as a watch. My friend showed me how you can tell the time but looking at how it lights up. So just to give you a recap on what’s great about Misfit Shine…
If you are interested in buying one, the SRP is close to Php 7000. You can buy the Misfit Shine at these official retail partners: Mobile 1, Power Mac Center and Rustans Department Store.
