CNET First Look
First look: Misfit Shine 2 is a magic, multicolored fitness stoneA rainbow of glowing LEDs plus newly-added notifications, alarm vibrations and smart button functions make the newest Shine more attractive, and potentially a lot more useful.
[MUSIC] MisFit makes fitness wearables that look a little more like jewelry, and they're small, they're multipurpose, they can clip into things. The MisFit Shine 2 has a similar look to before, but it has a bunch of really pretty LED lights. Plus It has a gentler touch mechanism that you can interact with to get all of your step progress and also be able to see incoming call notifications, other notifications from your phone, plus it finally adds a vibration motor so you can get a wake up call or get a little buzz if you've been inactive for a little while. The new Shine 2 costs what the old Shine did, $99.00. And it comes in two different colors. A matte black and a rose gold tone. There are a number of accessories this can pop into. Including a wristband and you can probably expect jewelery like accessories as well. Something at [UNKNOWN] excelled in previously. And just like the least expensive Misfit flash link, this can work with smart button features that are slowly beginning to grow in Misfit's app collection. Hopefully, as smart phone stuff begins to expand, maybe, this will be able to do more, too. The Shine 2 is a small, pretty versatile, little fitness tracker with a couple of new tweaks. We look forward to checking it out at CNET. I'm Scott Stein. [MUSIC]
