Total rip off
By Sarah Hunt
I bought the Misfit Shine after giving into the onslaught of advertising. Excited about the idea of wearing a fashionable activity tracker, I bought the necklace as well.
This thing is a total ripoff for $50. First of all, it's long and not adjustable -- however not long enough to be looped around twice as suggested in the picture. It falls in that perfect awkward length where it's just below the neckline of most of my shirts, but not long enough to pass it so I was constantly flinging it around to untuck it out of my shirt.
The chain is plastic and cheap and the fastener disengages easily. It says appropriate for swimming, but I would be surprised if this remained fastened with some vigorous swimming. The pendant is decent enough, but not worth $50 on top of the $100 you'll pay for the Shine. I'm the type that NEVER returns anything from Amazon, and I'll be sending this back in the mail tomorrow.
Don't waste your money. The Shine comes with a loop fastener which would be better worn on a chain of your choosing. Save your money from this junk.

Avoid at all costs.
By Gordon Emmerson
Look, I like my Shine. I think it's a nice piece of hardware with some caveats that does the job it advertised. However, this necklace that you are viewing is not a nice thing. It is a $50 necklace that feels like a $5 necklace. The shine feels like it's going to pop out any second while inside, and there's a shiny ring around the inner edge that scratches if you so much as breathe on it. (also, I'm pretty sure it was scratched brand new out of the box, but I cannot confirm) It's too short (only got down to a little under my collarbone) and the holder part of the necklace feels more like plastic than metal. Clasp holds well, though.
I tried to use it during the day to see how many points I got while moving around and it barely registers anything at all while inside the necklace. I'm not sure if it was the shine or me, but if you're considering using this day-to-day, don't.
You know, that's a good word to sum up this whole review. Let's end with it.

much sturdier in every way and pretty much faultless
There is 2 sides to this review..
The majority of the reviews for this product were that it is sub standard. They're right!!
It literally fell apart while taking it out of the box.
However after sending a photo of the defect, Amazon replaced it straight away. The replacement product was an obvious redesign, much sturdier in every way and pretty much faultless.
So if your ordering this product hopefully you'll get the later design and everything will be good!!!
