Fitness tracker company Misfit makes a number of products that can track steps, sleep quality, and other stats. Now the company is patnering with Speedo on a line of trackers designed specifically for swimmers.
The new Speedo Shine joins the Misfti Shine, Flash, Flash Link, and other members of the Misfit family. The $80 Speedo Shine will be available exclusively from SpeedoUSA.com and the Apple Store starting September.
Here’s the thing though: you could probably just save money and just buy a Misfit Shine for $70. It’s also a activity tracker that’s waterproof up to 50 meters, and which can monitor your swimming stats.
That said, Misfit says the Speedo Shine has been “validated by Speedo in-pool testing” to ensure that its lap-tracking algorithm is accurate and works “for all stroke types.” It will also be able to work with the Speedo Fit mobile app as well as the Misfit app for iOS or Android.
The Speedo Shine is a silver-colored device made of aircraft-grade aluminum and it’s designed to worn in a watch-like wristband. In addition to swim tracking, it can monitor activities including walking, running, and cycling. Like other Misfit tracker, it has no screen and a battery that’s designed to last for months rather than days.
