Misfit Shine gets extra sparkle with Swarovski crystalsMisfit has partnered with jeweler Swarovski to offer a fashion-forward version of its Shine, masking the activity tracker as jewelry. The violet version of the Swarovski Shine is also solar-powered.
Hi, I'm Scott Stein, here in Las Vegas with Vanessa from Cnet. And one of the more interesting partnerships is Misfit, who already makes, fitness trackers that pair with a bunch of accessories, bordering on jewelry are now pairing and working with Swarovski. And this partnership has produced the Misfit Swarovski Shine. This is actually jewelry in a variety of different forms. Slakes, pendants, and there is a actual Swarovski crystal that is bonded onto the hardware here. These are gonna be available in March. And packages for the Swarovski shine start at $170 to 250. They include a workout tracker a rubberized band. They're water resistant to 50 meters and they're also these accessories which work as the original Misfit Shine. And I'm very I'm not an expert on jewelery and you are. Believe it or not this is the, the first wearable that I'd actually wear out. So Misfit was already one of the popular ones for women because. There, the, the more subtle ones. And they track your sleep and your exercise, like you said. But they tend to be, you know, wearable for us. So I'm, I'm glad that the technology world is finally catering to us women with some shine. Well these also have one more wrinkle. Coming out later in the year is a violet crystaled Misfit that generates its own power. It has an energy harvesting crystal. Patented technology is a solar collector that uses the crystal to bend light in and sustain its own energy, which is minutes of, of daylight charging at a time. So this is kind of the beginning of embedded wearable technology that doesn't look like wearables at all. Pre-orders are on misfit.com now. It's gonna be available in retail stores, Swarovski,. In Hong Kong, the US, and China and it's also going to be available on swarovski.com. From CES I'm Scott Stein and I'm Vanessa Adriana. [MUSIC]
