Misfit Speedo Shine: New Tracking Device for Swimming
This news release about the new Misfit Speedo Shine might be of interest to those who like to track their swimming activities or are in the market to buy one. It'll be available next month (September).

Since the regular Misfit Shine was already marketed for swimming, I’m not sure what additional features will be on the Misfit Speedo Shine that would warrant an upgrade or the additional cost. The article does mention that the “firmware” is different so Misfit could add the new swimming features to the regular Misfit Shine (I highly doubt that they’ll do it since it would undercut the sales of the Misfit Speedo Shine) .

I got a Misfit Speedo Shine and at first it didn't work with my old iPhone (a 4S) but it seems to work properly with my new one (6S). If, like me, you lose track on the number of laps you've swum, it's useful. Negatives: you have to sync it with your phone to see the number of laps you've completed; you can't "pause" between sets or drills if you're interested in tracking your pace - you have to time each set separately.
