Startup organization Misfit, a company co-founded by former Apple CEO John Sculley, has released Shine, a physical activity monitor for use with iOS devices. Shine includes features such as the ability to wear the monitor anywhere on the body with additional accessories, as well as mobile syncing that is done by placing Shine on top of an iOS device and using an official app that can be downloaded from the App Store [Direct Link].

Shine is an elegant new activity tracker that helps you live a more active life. Wear Shine anywhere on your body with our range of accessories that are designed for any occasion. Then sync with the Shine app to set your activity goal, check your daily progress, and see your movement trends.

Shine was originally funded through an Indiegogo campaign that raised over $845,000 in 2012. The device retails for $99.95 and is available on Misfit’s official online store.

Shine will also be coming shortly to Apple's retail and online stores. The device briefly appeared in Apple's online store yesterday in a $119.95 package that also includes Shine's sport band bracelet strap, although it has now been removed from the store for unknown reasons.

Looks cool.


If you need an activity monitor to find out if you're moving enough..... You're not moving enough.

I hope I can get it shipped to my door so I don't have to get off the couch to go buy it.

Quick, someone make an app that causes the Shine to draw all the remaining power from your iOS device and transfer it to you ass for one motivational, electrical shock if you sit on the couch too long. Call it Fried Potato. ;)

Is this John Sculley finally trying to prove that he is product person?
Finally, this is a thread where I can honestly say: "Steve Jobs would never have allowed this (into his Apple Stores)." :D

.... Because this is John Sculley we are talking about.
