The new product is named as Speedo Shine, and it looks exactly like the Misfit Shine, but it comes with proprietary lap counting algorithms embedded in the device’s firmware track a swimmer’s lap count with industry-leading accuracy, as validated by Speedo in-pool testing at their advanced development facility, the Aqualab, and work for all stroke types.

Misfit seems to be really charging up their hones in the Fitness tracking arena. Recently they dropped pricing for their products, and now there is new in the league which hasn’t been targeted by many.

I have been using Shine from sometime, and have really loved the product because of it being almost invisible and there is no need to charge it uo every week. These are huge plus for any fitness tracker.

The price of the tracker will be announced in the next 2 weeks. I am expecting this to cost around the same as Misfit Shine.
