Speedo Shine is the world's first activity, swim and sleep tracker. The button-sized device is waterproof to a depth of over 160 feet.

Misfit's button-sized Shine fitness tracker is waterproof to a depth of over 160 feet. As such swimmers don't need to take it off while training. But since accurately measuring laps is different from measuring steps, Misfit has teamed up with Speedo to create a new version of the Shine that's customised to track underwater activities.

The Speedo Shine, as the new version is called, features custom firmware with proprietary motion-sensing algorithms allowing it to keep track of a swimmer's lap count, swim distance and calories burned, no matter what type of stroke they're using.

Made from aircraft-grade aluminium, the Speedo Shine also tracks the wearer's walking, running, cycling and sleep, just like the original version, so they don't need to switch between versions going in and out of the water. And it syncs with the existing Misfit app, available on iOS and Android, or Speedo's own upcoming fitness tracking app called Speedo Fit . Available from September on both Misfit and Speedo websites, the Speedo Shine will sell for $80, which is about $10 more than what the original Shine currently sells for.

Specifications

Battery life: Up to six months Waterproof: 50 meters Sensor: 3-axis accelerometer Measures: Steps, calories burned, distance, swim laps and sleep quality and its duration
