What's included

  • Shine Fitness and Sleep Monitor
  • CR2032 battery
  • Battery tool
  • Sport Band
  • Clasp


  • 1. Firmly push the battery tool into the notch and pry open the back cover until it lifts.

  • 2. Place the battery into the back cover, (+) side facing the cover.

    * Double check that the + and - sides are facing the right way in the device.

  • 3. Align “12” on the back cover with the notch on the front cover.

  • 5. Press the two pieces together firmly until you hear a ‘click’.

  • 5. To check that installation was successful, firmly tap Shine twice - one light should turn on, which also indicates the position of 12 on the clockface.


Shine is powered by a 3 Volt CR2032 coin cell battery (included). Only replace the battery in the Shine with a CR2032 battery type. It lasts about 4 to 6 months with normal use.

When you see the low battery indicator on the upper left hand corner after you sync Shine to the app, you have less than one week to replace the battery. We recommend using the same brand (or one with equivalent quality), which should give you the estimated battery life.

Battery replacement instructions:

  • 1. Firmly push the battery tool into the notch until the cover lifts.

  • 2. Use the Clasp magnet to help you remove the battery from the back cover. Remove the used battery and properly dispose of the used battery. [Refer to section “Battery Disposal and Recycling”]

  • 3. Place a new CR2032 battery into the Shine, so that the negative (-) faces down into the Shine and the positive (+) faces outwards. The positive (+) face of the battery should be visible when placed into the Shine.

  • 4. Align “12” on the back cover with the notch on the front cover.

  • 5. Press the two pieces together firmly until you hear a ‘click’.

Best practices to maximise Shine’s battery life:

  • Keep the app up to date
  • Keep Shine’s firmware up to date
  • Resist unnecessary tapping of Shine as a party trick

1. Signing up with the App

Download the Misfit App from the App Store, Google Play or Windows Phone Store and install the Misfit App on your device.


Tip: Search for “Misfit” in the App Store.

Open the app and follow the instructions on screen to create an account for new users or log in if you already have one. You will be asked to input information about yourself so we can provide you with the best experience and most accurate data. This information is confidential. Refer to our Privacy Policy in ‘Settings’ in the app for more information.

2. Linking your Shine for the first time

After you set your goal, you will be prompted to link Shine for the first time. In the app, initiate the linking process to allow the device to search for the Shine’s Bluetooth signal. The LED lights on the Shine should light up.


Shine is water resistant up to 5 ATM (50 metres).

To maintain water resistance:

  • Install the back cover correctly
  • Do not tamper with the back cover when it is still submerged in liquid
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to salt water or other chemicals, e.g. detergent, chlorine
  • Avoid moving Shine in and out of contrasting extreme atmospheres; saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs and hot showers could distort the sealing gasket
  • Avoid opening the back cover unnecessarily
  • When opening the back cover to replace the battery, avoid touching the gasket
  • Never leave Shine open for more than a few hours; a dry gasket will cause the seal to fail


Operating temperature: -4° to 113° F (-20° to 45° C)

Non-operating temperature: -22° to 140° F (-30° to 60° C)

    Shine Clasp should be worn on thin materials only.

    Take extra care when wearing to prevent loss. Here are some suggested ways to wear the Clasp:

    * Shine and Clasp contain strong magnets, which could cause electronic equipment to malfunction.

To get the most accurate data, wear your Shine in the following positions when you intend to track the following types of activities.

Walking/Running: Wear your choice of accessory anywhere, get creative!
Cycling: Wear it on your foot or ankle using the Clasp.
Swimming Wear it on your wrist with the Sport band.
Sleep: Wear Shine on your wrist while you are sleeping for the most accurate data.
Other activities: Wear it on the part of your body that is moving the most. Here are some options...


Shine holds up to 30 days of your activity data. Sync Shine regularly to ensure the most detailed data has been downloaded onto the app. Shine begins recording data for each day at midnight, when its display resets. Information from the previous day is stored in it’s memory and will be transferred to the app at the next sync.


Points are a way to measure physical activity, both from steps and other activities. For example, if you walk for 10 minutes, you can earn about 100 points, depending on your pace. If you run for 10 minutes, you can earn closer to 3-5 times that amount, depending on the intensity of your running. The more active you are, the more points you receive. It’s that simple.


Shine displays your total calories burned, which includes:

Calories related to your physical activities like walking, running, swimming, etc. The basal metabolic rate (BMR) of energy needed just to keep your body alive. Even if you have not performed a lot of activity in a day, you will still burn calories related to your BMR, which can be a surprisingly large number - more than 1,500 calories for many users. Shine’s calorie estimate is based on the most updated medical research on energy expenditure.


If you wear Shine to sleep, it can automatically track:
- When you fell asleep
- Duration of sleep
- Duration of light and restful sleep
- When you woke up



Double-tap Shine with one or two fingers to check progress toward your daily activity goal.

  • 25% Progress (Activity Goal)

  • 50% Progress (Activity Goal)

  • 75% Progress (Activity Goal)

Telling time:

You can enable the clock feature and choose to display it before or after your activity progress when you double-tap Shine. The time is synchronised with the time on your mobile device.

  • 12, 3, 6, 9 o’clock reference lights

  • Hour: Bright Light
    Minute: Blinking Light
    Example Shown: 11:10


You can also track other activities (not walking or running).

The custom activity tag can be set in the app, found under the option “Devices > Tagging and sleep”. Tags can be set for:


Triple-tap your Shine when you begin your activity. The lights on the Shine will radiate upwards three times to confirm your tag.
