In partnership with Speedo, Misfit has today announced the launch of a new activity, swim, and sleep tracker called the ‘Speedo Shine’, which will be available exclusively at Apple stores, Misfit.com and SpeedoUSA.com on September 1st for $79.99. Speedo Shine syncs with the Misfit app for iOS and displays laps and swim distance, along with calories burned and points earned.
“One of the most difficult parts of swimming for fitness is keeping track of laps and the Speedo Shine eliminates that challenge,” said Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin. “With the Speedo Shine, you can focus on getting the most out of your water workout and it’s also a great looking accessory to wear.”
Jamie Cornforth, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Speedo International said: “Speedo’s purpose is to inspire people to swim. The new Speedo Shine is a big step forward and will give swimmers the information they have always wanted, the ability to accurately track their laps, distance, calories and time. The new Speedo Shine also allows swimmers to take this information and seamlessly add it to their wider fitness data, providing an accurate and complete view of their total health and fitness regime. Swimming has always been a great way to improve your health and fitness — the Speedo Shine will now make swimming an even more valuable and effective experience.”
The Misfit Shine will soon also work with Speedo’s personalized swim tracking app, Speedo Fit.
