Speedo Shine is the world’s first activity, swim, and sleep tracker that was designed with swimmers in mind. Made out of durable aircraft-grade aluminum, Speedo Shine is waterproof to 50 meters (like the original Misfit Shine) and has special swim tracking capabilities. Speedo Shine tracks a swimmer’s lap count and swim distance with industry-leading accuracy and works for all stroke types.

 

Speedo Shine tracks walking, running, cycling, and more, and automatically tracks light and deep sleep. Extremely thin and comfortable, Speedo Shine was meant to be worn both in and out of the water. The new pale silver color, Pure, works with any attire, and the device can be worn on the wrist or as a clip almost anywhere on the body.

When logging a swim in the Speedo Fit app current users have to do this manually after their swim session. This can cause issues with users forgetting how many laps they have completed or forgetting to add their swim completely.

The collaboration with Misfit and the launch of the Misfit Speedo Shine activity and swim tracker now provides a hardware device that can be linked to the Speedo Fit app (via the Misfit app) and allow automatic swim lap counting.
