Misfit Shine 2 Review: Activity tracking
The Misfit tracks your activities in all the time that is anywhere on your body. The Tracking of the device is quite accurate from extreme tests on various tasks. The device can also track your sleep! The wake-up mode exerts a silent vibration on your hands and helps to maintain your time. The sleep tracker records your sleep time and records in the app. The Heart rate can’t be tracked with the device, It is a small drawback of it.

But that is not a silly one. It Produces different color in different modes to give the exact Notifications to the users. We can set our goal with a simple tap on the device.

If we are not ready to stop even on 100%, The Shine to just changes the color to Yellow and continue giving results and like that for the remaining Percentages. Thus, you can easily determine the goal completion rate.
When you receive a phone call, the LED lights at the top half of the device light up in green. When you receive a text message, they light up in blue. Very strange to say that, no manuals of the device describing how the LED light flash up or what does it indicates are not published by the company.
