Misfit and Speedo have announced the launch of the Speedo 2 Shine, a speedo-branded swim, sleep and activity tracker.
Following the original collaboration between these two fitness giants the Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer introduces a new generation of swim tracking, made completely with swimmers in mind. Misfit and Speedo’s proprietary lap counting algorithms track a swimmer’s lap count with industry-leading accuracy and work for all stroke types.
The activity tracker is made made of durable aircraft-grade aluminium, designed for non-stop wear with a battery life of up to 6 months.
The latest edition tracks swim distance down to the meter, counts swim laps for 25 and 50 meter pools, and counts down a set swim time. It also works with the Speedo Fit app to provide granular insight into your swim fitness.
Misfit Shine 2 swimmer edition also tracks steps, distance, calories, light and restful sleep, delivers call and text alerts and vibration notifications with IoT compatibility that let you control your connected devices.
“Whether you’re training competitively or swimming for fitness, you want your focus to be on speed and form – not tracking laps. With the Speedo Shine 2, you can concentrate on your efforts in the pool without distractions,” said Team Speedo USA athlete and four-time Olympic medallist Cullen Jones. “Speedo Shine 2 is an ideal aid for athletes and fitness enthusiasts to maximise their time in the water while keeping track of their overall fitness and sleep.”
The new Misfit Link compatibility means the Speedo Shine 2 can be turned into a music remote, selfie trigger, presentation clicker, or button to enable a variety of smart home devices and web services.
The Speedo Shine 2 also features Misfit’s most advanced hardware and firmware, which offers dramatically improved touch responsiveness with capacitive touch technology, faster syncing, and an extended Bluetooth range. Its 12 lights display over 16 million colours and are bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight.
The also device works with Speedo’s personalised swim tracking app, Speedo Fit, to provide a fine-grain resolution into your swim fitness.
The Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer Edition retails at $119.99 and ships to the UK in 2 to 3 weeks.
