Initially when looking at the Speedo Shine, I was concerned that it did not have a readout or screen...went with it anyway because it tracks swims...now I am totally stoked for the following reasons:
-Very intuitive and easy to set up
-Still can check time
-Tracks my daily activities including cycling and swimming
-Tracks Sleep behavior...total bonus
-All data is updated and stored on smart phone
-Smart phone app is easy to use
-Streamlined profile works well in water (I use watch band and would recommend secure clip if you are using in pool or ocean)
My only knock on the Speedo Shine is that it is difficult to change batteries, but once you figure out the trick...you are good to go...

No other fitness tracker that is "designed with swimming in mind" is as elegant as the Speedo Shine. It's not bulky, so it doesn't easily bump things; the sleek design prevents it from being caught on things as well. However, I feel that both Misfit and Speedo cater more to Apple users. The evidence is clear in the organization, accuracy, and functionality of the iOS app in comparison to the extremely basic features available for Android.

The first day I swam with the Misfit, the yards were inaccurate. I swam a total of 1800 yards, and the Shine only logged 1350. However, the next two days that I swam, it was spot on. I ran with it twice, both distances were off by a mile or so. It also had trouble syncing. It usually took 3 or 4 attempts before it would sync successfully. Also, the information from logged workouts is just too basic for me.

As an Android user I am returning my Speedo Shine and finding something more compatible, which is disappointing to say because Misfit and Speedo have created a potentially well-rounded product. It just needs more work.

Comments about Speedo Shine by Misfit:

I LOVE the ability to tag actibities anf I LOVE the design.
The device does not sync well with the app, I always have to try several times. Many time Shine will say you have reached your target, while the app shows you have not - so there seems to be inconsistencies. I also noticed that the activity tagging does not workwell with cycling, for some reason it stops working a while after you start to exercisr...a bit frustrating...

    Comments about Speedo Shine by Misfit:

    Won't record circuit training or anything like that, so not accurate.
    Mine died after a couple of months.
    The iPhone app was good but then updated to require a link to social media. I'm not comfortable with that, so it's just as well that the watch failed.

      Comments about Speedo Shine by Misfit:

      Pros:
      * Attractive
      * Scratches don't show much or go away
      * Counts laps
      * Tracks sleep and steps
      * Cool LED lights show time and workout progress
      Cons:
      * It doesn't give any points for other activities such as yoga.
      * Can fall out of the band.

      I have been using this since September of 2015 and I love it each and every day. It has fallen out twice but I was lucky enough to have found it. The black and white bands that it comes with is nice looking but I bought the silver and black metal mesh bands and I really like those. I was impressed that Misfit sent me extra two batteries once they figured out that my tracker's battery was almost out of juice. However, if you have to buy one, they are very cheap. You can get several for $5. Each battery lasts about 3 months. Not having to take it off everyday to charge it, is really awesome. I have received many compliments on this.

            Wanted to use this product for lap swimming and everyday uses. Very impractical as you have to change the settings on the app and then hit your watch three times to start and stop. If it worked I could live with that.But unfortunately even when it says it's working it's usually not it usually cuts my right off halfway through my run or swim. Does not give you exact information on your work out sometimes it's counting my laps sometimes it doesn't even when it says it's counting them.
            Does not allow you to alter information in such a way that it is useful. Does not have very many activities to choose from for activity monitoring. But really good reason I don't like it is because it does not work half the timeThis is my second one. It sucks. Really wanted to work because it's so sleek and pretty I really wish I had not given my son one of these as a gift

                Comments about Speedo Shine by Misfit:

                I use my Misfit for lap swimming, and for tracking my steps during daily activities while I'm pet sitting and running around town. Seems to track pretty accurately. Love that it can get wet and track my laps. Love that it has a battery, and I don't have to take it off to charge it with a connection to my computer or the wall. The sleep tracking works intuitively so I don't have to remember to tell it I'm going to sleep. My only issue is that it fell out of the band in a grocery store. Not sure if I banged again something, or if swimming caused the band to loosen so that the Misfit wasn't as secure. Time will tell.

                        -able to add swim sets in Speedo Fit for detailed workout info.
                        -I think is great that you're able to set goals based on total activity goals and just steps (running, swimming, tennis walking etc and they all count toward your activity goal.
                        -One draw back is that it doesn't seem to count your kick sets, if you're gonna count them you can edit and add them in.

                          Fitness swimmer and loved the idea of the lap counter in addition to the sleep monitor and steps taken. Loved the app, the MASSIVE down is the Shine band that does not have a suitable fastening for exercise. It came off in the pool from time to time. It also came off when walking from time to time - now after 3 months only it came off for good only to be lost. Would I buy it again? Maybe. Will I replace it? Not until they improve the closure on the band. I read reviews of this happening, but thought not much of it. Buyer beware and if you do be careful.

                            Overall I really like this product. It works well for tracking swim laps. The only problem I had was the back is very difficult to get off to install the battery. The tool they provided damaged and scratched the back. However, I contacted the company and they sent me a replacement. I was very pleased with their customer service.

                              This looks good on, but it doesn't work. This was the second one I purchased. The first just wouldn't sync with my Android phone and I thought it might just be defective, so I returned it. I purchased a second one and it worked for one week and then wouldn't count laps and wouldn't sync. The support staff for this device is virtually non-existent. I sent one email with all of the things that I had done to remedy the situation per their website and the email was a canned one reiterating everything I had already done. The follow up email from them was 3 days later. I returned this one also. It shouldn't be sold until the Android syncing is fixed and there should be a warning to Android users about these issues. Not sure how it works with Apple phones. I'm sorry it didn't work because I like the look of it and the premise. Disappointed..I bought a Garmin swim watch instead.

                              I got the ¨Speedo Shine¨ bracelet on December 25, 2015, and I have been using it ever since then. I wear it all the time, so it can get accurate info, and it has worked well for giving me that.
                              When I got the ¨Speedo Shine¨, I opened the box and noticed right away that it came with a black and a white wrist band, an action clip for clipping it to your shoe or belt, a clasp for putting in the battery, and the device. I was disappointed that it was so difficult to pop open the back of the shine to put in the battery, but with a little adult help it was doable.
                              Over all, I have had a pretty good experience with the ¨Speedo Shine¨, but sometimes it stops tracking my swimming very abruptly. Like when my coach has us taking a break, or when we are supposed to get out of the pool so our coach can give us the next set. I am very happy with my ¨Speedo Shine¨ by Misfit, and I hope you are too.

                                    This is very good at counting laps for you and measuring the distance and time elapsed. It also does a good job of recording your sleep patterns. I doesn't measure the laps when you are using a kick board.

                                    No other fitness tracker that is "designed with swimming in mind" is as elegant as the Speedo Shine. It's not bulky, so it doesn't easily bump things; the sleek design prevents it from being caught on things as well. However, I feel that both Misfit and Speedo cater more to Apple users. The evidence is clear in the organization, accuracy, and functionality of the iOS app in comparison to the extremely basic features available for Android.

                                    The first day I swam with the Misfit, the yards were inaccurate. I swam a total of 1800 yards, and the Shine only logged 1350. However, the next two days that I swam, it was spot on. I ran with it twice, both distances were off by a mile or so. It also had trouble syncing. It usually took 3 or 4 attempts before it would sync successfully. Also, the information from logged workouts is just too basic for me.

                                    As an Android user I am returning my Speedo Shine and finding something more compatible, which is disappointing to say because Misfit and Speedo have created a potentially well-rounded product. It just needs more work.

                                        I was needing a tracker for swimming to supplement another popular watch tracker. the misfit shine is lightweight and does tracker swimming laps pretty well, but doesn't track kicking laps. it also seems to under report walking steps against another tracker i wear. i do like the sleep tracking too and the fact that i dont have to charge it.

                                          The shine is great for keeping track of your swimming. The bracelet fits well however you do need to be careful that the shine does not come loose from the harness.

                                            I am a swimmer and swim 6-7 days a week for at least 2 hours a day. I am not at all impressed with the watch. It does not work, it does not track my progress correctly, the battery holder is very hard to open, the clock does not work and it falls out of it's case a lot which scratches it easily. It worked the first few days I got it, but not after that. However, the sleep tracker is very effective and handy.

                                            Overall, the speedo shine is a great product. The data is accurate, and it is a good design. I love that they give you two different color bands (white and black). There are some drawbacks though as with every product. First off, BRWARE OF SCRATCHES!!! The metal on the shine is not scratch proof. COME ON MISFIT!! PLEASE MAKE YOUR PRODUCTS MORE DURABLE AND LESS PRONE TO SCRATCHES.

                                            Second drawback is that misfit has no phone support. Just an email support that does not respond on weekends. On average, it took about 15 hours for misfit to respond by email. The staff is nice, but not really smart. I asked about the scratch issue and they told me to just put clear nail polish on it???? This is another major flaw that misfit has. At least train your representatives on how to respond more appropriately.

                                            I know I made this review more about the flaws about this device, but truth be told, this product outweighs the cons with the pros. If misfit or speedo would fix some things, this product would be amazing.

                                              I really like my Speedo Misfit. I bought it when it first came out and have been using it ever since. It tracks my laps & steps correctly which is great. I also bought one for a family member and they enjoy theirs as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking to track their laps.

                                                  I had been concerned about the negative reviews, but went ahead and purchased this. I won't lie- it did take a couple of weeks to intuitively be able to know when it was and wasn't tracking swims. I believe the negatives come from not knowing the sequence of what to do and when to sync. I am now in the habit of waiting till I pull into the gym and then I set it to specifically track swim laps (it won't unless you specifically do it on your phone app). You cannot forget to sync it immediately. Then, when I climb in the water, I triple tap. It keeps the count very accurately- wish I knew how. You CAN program it to standard pool sizes, as well as custom ones. Once I finish the laps, I just triple tap again. Even if I go sit in the spa or delay, I just make sure when I get in the car, I sync immediately. I haven't had one "miss" since I have the routine down. It measures your time accurately between triple taps, and it counts laps accurately (of course I guess if you turned halfway down the lane, it wouldn't know you were cheating!). The clasp is very secure and you cannot even feel that you are wearing it. On a personal note, I adore the name "misfit" because it's so contrary to those "Fitbit" fitness addicts titles! I have to add that my 18 month old grandson loves tapping it and watching it sync! You will not be disappointed purchasing this if you want to swim and enjoy it by not counting time or laps!

                                                    Bought speedo shine to count my lengths while swimming every day. It did not consistently count them and didn't even recognize I was swimming some of the time.

                                                        Sarah S: The Shine by Misfit tracker does tell time by double tapping with one or two fingers to see progress towards your daily goal and the time (when enabled from 'My Shine' in the app). Hour reference time lights are at 12,3,6 & 9. Hours are represented by a bright light, and minutes are represented by blinking light.

(2) Triple tap Speedo Shine before your first lap. Make sure you notice the blinking LED at the 6 o'clock position. (3) Triple tap Speedo Shine after your last lap. The LED should stop blinking after you triple tap. (4) Sync with your Misfit app - make sure the app is updated to its latest version.

                                                      With the Misfit Speedo Shine, is there a way of telling how many laps I have swum while I am swimming? For example, say I want to swim 72 laps. After swimming for 25 minutes can I look at the Speedo Shine on my wrist and find out how many laps I have completed? If so, how is that information conveyed?

You'll need to sync Speedo Shine with the Misfit app on your phone after the swim sessions to access this information. There you'll find info such as your lap counts, swim distance and calories burned. Please note that what you see when double tapping Shine does not indicate the number of laps you've done. You'll need to sync Shine with the app to get to see this info.

                                                        1. Yes Speedo Shine would still be waterproof. You just need to close the Shine properly. To do so, please firmly press the two pieces together until you hear a click. The lights on the front side should light up, signifying a successful battery installation. 2. No, our devices does not support tracking heart rate yet. 3. On computer/laptop, there are some conditions to be met to install Misfit app: 1) your have Windows 8.1 and 2) Bluetooth 4.0 or above. If all the conditions are satisfied, please download the app here: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/misfit/53730fd8-ba28-4eb2-9891-08e8441760eb

                                                        Georges: Here are sync instructions: (1) Sync with the Misfit app (latest version) until the Update Firmware bar is completed. (2) In the "Devices" section of the Misfit app, enable "Activity Tagging." (3) Select "Swimming" (4) Tap the row beneath "Swimming" which contains the default pool length. (5) On the next page, make sure "Auto Lap Counting" is enabled and select the pool you most frequently swim in. Don't worry, you can change the pool length later if you want. (6) Go back to the "Devices" section and sync with your Speedo Shine.

                                                      I read somewhere that the new speedo shine comes with an action clip, but speedo web did not have any information regarding the action clip and did not mention anything about it.

(1) Push the included battery tool into the small notch and gently pry open the back cover until it lifts. (2) Place the battery with the (+) side facing the (+) on the back cover.
                                                        (3) Align the "12" which signifies the 12 oclock top hand to the notch of the front cover. (4) Firmly press the two pieces together until you hear a click. (5) The lights on the front side should light up, signifying a successful battery installation.

I also think that overall the misfit is just going to keep falling off of her wrist. I have my swim team using these devices, but only the older kids with bigger wrists, such as the 6th grade and up group is the age group that I have found to work the best with the misfit

                                                      I LOVE that there is finally a tracker that I can wear when I swim. But I'm not so happy about the potential ongoing cost of batteries. The product details say "it runs off a basic watch battery that lasts 4-6 months". Is the "months" part correct?
                                                      You taut the battery as a good thing. Do a lot of activity tracker users have a problem with charging them? Or is this more a factor of it being water tight?
                                                      Do watch batteries still cost about $25 like they did when I wore a watch many years ago? That ongoing maintenance cost is a huge drawback for me. I dropped the Body Media armband due to the $7/mth subscription fee.
