The tiny Misfit Shine digital health and fitness gadget placed second at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show's "Last Gadget Standing" competition, which certainly helped to get the word out, and after raising over $700,000 from about 7,000 funders the Misfit Shine physical activity tracker is scheduled to start shipping in spring 2013. It will retail for $99 but you can pre-order the device for $69 on Indiegogo until January 16th.
"Shine is an elegant personal activity tracker that comes with a line of accessories so users can wear it anywhere (shoes, pants, bra, wrist, neck, hair, etc.) and to any occasion (black tie, business, casual, swimwear). The user simply taps the device and a halo of lights appears to give feedback on their progress toward their daily activity goal. Timeless in design, Shine is diamond-cut out of a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum and built to last a lifetime. It works with the Shine app, which allows users to set their fitness goals. To sync Shine, the user simply places it on their phone screen and data is downloaded in seconds."
