A few months ago I was asked to review an up and coming activity tracker. Why have I waited so long to review it? Well, just like any device, I wanted to see how much I used it in my day-to-day life.
Hint: Every Damn Day.
The disk-like device is activated by a slight tap on its exterior. The first illumination shows how many steps you've taken while the second two lights shine like hands of a clock displaying the time.

Wirelessly syncing to your phone throughout the Shine App, all of your data is available at your disposal to evaluate.
Personally, I use this as a ‘check-in’ for myself. Now that I am desk-bound twice a week, I find I'm much less mobile on those days. I set a goal of 10,000 steps and strap on my Shine. Once the day is done and I’m climbing into bed I pull up my Shine app and see just how far I walked, ran and just plain moved.
So what does this mean to you?
Well, if you're looking for something that will hold you accountable to workout, stay fit, get fit or just move more — this is it. It’s simple to use and stylish design will have everyone asking what you're wearing.
And while my style is sporty by nature, I have to say I wear this gadget wherever I go. Out to dinner, to the gym or walking Baxter. I really enjoy the simplicity while (in my opinion) being comparable to a Nike Fuel Band or FitBit.
Did I mention they come in an array of colors?
Yup. Shine on my friends, shine on.
