Misfit Shine Review

Misfit is a young, start-up brand many of you may not have heard of up until now. Misfit is responsible for creating a new wearable health and fitness tracking gadget known as Shine. Classified as a personal fitness tracker, Misfit's Shine is the latest wireless fitness tracker to join an ever-expanding market of smart, wearable activity monitors. Unlike Jawbone's Up and Fitbit's Flex writsband trackers, the Shine is heavily fixed on being the most premium, most elegantly designed fitness tracker ever made. The Shine is the first truly unique fitness tracker that can track more physical activities in order to accurately count how much calories you've burned off during the day based on how intensive an certain type of activity is than any other fitness tracker.

Thanks to a modular design and smart algorithms, Misfit's Shine has been optimized to track and appropriately reward you with important data in dry or wet conditions, and yes for the first time that also includes swimming. We've spent a full week with it to bring you our in-depth review, so be sure to jump over the hurdle for the full rundown! (Updated)

Jawbone Up Review

What if we told you that you can track the way you sleep, what you eat and how it makes you feel, exactly how much calories you've burned off and how many steps you took to do so. The Up by Jawbone isn't another Bluetooth headset or speaker, it's a fitness band you'll want to wear regardless if you're into looking after your health or not. Jawbone's Up is a well lubricated system that can track your sleep, activity and eating habits with the help of software and hardware.

Fitness tracking gadgets never looked this good and that's a fact. Jawbone knows how to make the little things stand out and sound great, but will the Up band turn out to be the best $100 you'll be spending? Questions will be answered, sweat will likely not be sweated but the review is after the jump!
