I have had my Shine for almost a year. I just started using SparkPeople a few weeks ago. My Shine does sync to SparkPeople, it just takes a while for this app to update the information.

Just revisiting and refocussing my weight loss / fitness goals. just purchased a misfit shine. Used for a couple of weeks now and working fine..but i don't know anyone else with one so linking to the 'friends' page provides no motivation / friendly rivalries. Would be great if anyone out there could ADD me as friend so i can get that extra motivating boost. My username on the SHINE app is gazani.

I have had the shine for awhile - I have it connected with the spark app, but it doesn't seem to sync any of my activity from it? Am I missing something??

Thanks for your help!

I had a Misfit Flash, which is a lower priced version of the Shine. I gave it away and went back to Fitbit.

I have the misfit flash. It has all the same features of the shine but is made of a hard plastic and cost half as much. I wear mine mostly on my wrist but which to my shoe during my walk away the pound workout and i put it on my swimsuit when i do water aerobics. I love this thing.

Hi there. I have been using the misfit shine since mid-January. I love it and they have done a lot to make the information more shareable. I wish the food and activity would earn me points here too...

I did the other day on the treadmill, attached to my sneaker. I got a higher step count then I usually get on my wrist but I'd rather leave it on the watch so I don't stretch out the band moving it too much.

Got mine yesterday. I use LoseIt! to track my food, it syncs with that. Spark People has a better community though so I bump back and forth. My username is cherco on Shine would love some Shine spark friends!

Hi, all- I got my Shine as a Kindle flash deal the day before yesterday. I really like it! Was using the Fitbit (basic one) so I can't wait to check out the sleep monitoring!

I just bought a Shine today (although it won't arrive until mid-June; the Clymb has them on sale. For 40% off - with discount code - I can wait.)

I also like the "bloom" - a stainless steel necklace/holder, sold on Amazon, also out of stock.

I used to use a fitbit ultra but it disintegrated on me.

I have had a Shine since last December. I love it! It's so easy to wear that I am rarely without it! I don't really trust the Calorie Counting feature, but I use it more to track activity anyway. If it could sync with SparkPeople it would be PERFECT!!!!

There be dragons.

I LOVE mine too - have been using it since around Christmas and my surprising fave feature is the sleep tracking! Would love to see it sync with Spark!

I just got my shine a few days ago and absolutely love it so far. I had the fitbit one and was always forgetting it when I would change clothes or when I would need to plug it in to charge. So far, I have been wearing it on my wrist (have the leather band coming in the mail) and it seems to work great. I love that it can be worn in the shower and that it syncs with my phone through blue tooth.
What really drove me to purchase this particular one is that it is waterproof and apparently can be worn while swimming. I have also worn it while biking (clipping it to my shoe).
It's super easy to tag activities/sleep (triple tap to start and then somehow it magically knows when you've stopped :)) and very easy to check progress (double tap to see lights light up or sync with your phone to get exact steps/ points for the day.
By far this is the most beautiful of all the trackers.

Over all, I'm a huge fan.

Artisgal, or anyone else, if you're interested in "friending" me on the Shine, my user name is "justmary"

When I had a fitbit, there was a huge thread of fitbit users you could add as friends, and it was great to have a little extra motivation.

So far so good. Got mine this weekend and I'm really liking it. I love that it's a little more discreet than some of the others and I'm excited to see what features will be added next. Who has experimented with different placements? So far it seems to be doing well on my wrist. I want to be careful not to get too caught up and maximizing my readings because I want to be accurate even if that means getting a little less credit. I am still using the fitness tracker for weight training and I am entering my activity but the shine really makes getting accurate time easy. I can't wait until they start offering to track other activities.

It's actually really cool. I had a Fitbit One, but didn't like that I had to clip it on. I've really liked the Shine, except for the lack of community around it like Fitbit has. So I'm really excited that they finally added it! It really helps to keep me motivated, and I've definitely been slacking, so this is perfect timing.

I had never heard of this so looked up the 'shine' monitor...it looks way cool and love the features and look, plus it measures sleep and can be worn emoticon in the water. When my BodyMedia fit wears out I will look into this option.
Thanks!!

I just got mine this weekend, still getting used to it. I'm a little bummed that there's no online community for it yet, like there is for the Fitbit, but I love the design. Just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there using it!
