Misfit and Speedo have once again teamed up to debut their second-generation Speedo Shine, launching today. The Speedo Shine 2 Swimmer’s Edition follows in the footsteps of the first Speedo Shine by offering activity, swimming, and sleep tracking, but also includes a number of features from the Misfit Shine 2 activity tracker.
New features with Speedo Shine 2 include:
- A vibration motor and multicolor lights, enabling multi-faceted user feedback—see progress and tell time in a halo of rainbow-colored lights, or get motivated with Misfit Move activity reminders;
- A countdown swim timer—users pick a time to swim and Speedo Shine 2 provides a gentle vibe alert when a workout is complete;
- Text and call notifications and a silent vibe alarm;
- Misfit Link compatibility, turning Speedo Shine 2 into a music remote, selfie trigger, presentation clicker, or button to enable a variety of smart home devices and web services
Whether you’re training competitively or swimming for fitness, you want your focus to be on speed and form – not tracking laps. With the Speedo Shine 2, you can concentrate on your efforts in the pool without distractions,” said Team Speedo USA athlete and four-time Olympic medalist Cullen Jones. “Speedo Shine 2 is an ideal aid for athletes and fitness enthusiasts to maximize their time in the water while keeping track of their overall fitness and sleep.”
Misfit is also debuting a $9.99 in-app purchase that enables swimming tracking and lap counting in the Misfit Ray and Misfit Shine 2. With this and future updates, Misfit users can customize and enhance their app experience based on the activities and features that matter most to them.
