Misfit today debuted its second-generation Shine activity tracker, which has been redesigned to incorporate new technology. The Shine 2 is thinner than the original Shine and it includes more accurate activity and sleep tracking capabilities along with improved LEDs, longer Bluetooth range, and better touch responsiveness.

There are now several multicolor LEDs built into the face of the Shine, which, along with a vibration motor, allow users to see their progress towards their daily goals and get reminders to get up and move. The Shine 2 also works with Misfit Link, so it can be used to do things like take selfies, receive call notifications, control music, control home products, and more.

The Shine 2, like the original Shine, is made of aluminum, and it measures in at just 3.3mm thick at the edge. Its built-in LEDs are able to display more than 6 million colors and their greater brightness makes it easier to tell the time and see progress towards a movement goal.

Misfit's newest device continues to operate on a standard watch battery, so it lasts up to six months on a single charge, and it's water resistant up to 50 meters, making it suitable for swim tracking.

The Shine 2 comes in Rose Gold and Carbon Black, with each of the Shine 2 trackers shipping with a sport band and a clasp. The Shine 2, priced at $99.99, is available for purchase from the Misfit website and it will be in retail stores beginning on November 1.

Neat, but why is this on Macrumors? Sorry to be that guy, but this isn't even tangentially related to Apple products?
I don't think that word means what you think it means. It's clearly tangentially related to Apple products. Just not directly related

I lost interest after their design flaw with the Misfit Flash band constantly breaking and the device falling out. Instead of fixing it they just kept sending bands which took forever to arrive here in the UK.

I thought their company had famous ex-Apple engineers. Their solution was just to ignore the problem and hope people would stop moaning about it.

This actually look neat - kinda like a sexy FitBit device. The swim tracking is a pretty cool feature, too.
