There’s a lot of things I love about my Shine activity monitor, but first of all is that I can wear my Shine all the time. No really, All. The. Time. Walking, running, sleeping, swimming, showering, doing dishes, cycling, date night… I never have to take my Shine activity monitor off!
Slightly larger than a quarter (oh yes, a quarter!) Shine activity monitors are extremely durable and water resistant up to 50 meters! You can wear your Shine rain or shine for outdoor activities, while swimming, or in my case, chasing children through the wading pool and while octopus wrestling (better known as bath time).
For most activities I rock my Shine using the included Sport Band, but when running/walking or cycling I’ve found that clipping my Shine to my shoe using the Magnetic Clasp (also included) seems to work best. Monitoring my sleep patterns is easy with the comfortable Sport Band and I’ve found that the Magnetic Clasp is a great way to wear my Shine when dressed up for date night.
Even my kids enjoy double tapping on my device to see my daily progress on the halo lights and syncing my device to the Shine app on my iPhone is super easy. Once synced it’s nice to see more details about my daily activity, including step counts, calories burned, and miles walked. There’s even an estimate of how many minutes of walking you need to complete your daily goal.
Keep in mind that you’re going to need an iOS (iPhone/iPod/iPad) device or an Android phone or tablet to use the Shine app. Click HERE to see if your device is compatible. I can’t say enough good things about Shine and highly recommend that you check out their site for all the details I couldn’t fit into my review!
