What is MISFIT?
↑ On this day's open press conference, there was a presentation from Mr. Daisuke Tanaka, who works on the Japanese promotion of MISFIT.
At first from explanation of MISFIT (misfit) company. Although it is a company name that you can not often hear in Japan, MISFIT's recruiting in crowdfunding is mainly wearable devices launched by founders Sony Woo and Apple's former CEO John Sculley in 2011 year It is an American company that develops and sells.
The founder Sony Wu reviewed all the competing wearable device Amazon reviews and noticed that many users were dissatisfied with the following 3 points.
- Charging is troublesome
- It is not waterproof
- I don't want to wear it
It was planned to create a wearable device that meets these three pointsThe first product "MISFIT SHINE (misfit Shine)" of MISFIT company released in XNUM X month.
↑ This day, MISFIT SHINE I received on the monitor. It's really small and simple. It is also excellent in design.
↑ MISFIT SHINE is a so-called wearable activity meter. You can measure the amount of activity (steps, calories burned, walking distance) on 1 day, and it can also be used as a monitor to measure sleeping time.
↑ The biggest feature is the button battery, so daily charging is unnecessary. Operates without charge for up to 6 months.
I used to have an activity meter called FITBIT, but I still needed to charge XNUM times in XNUM weeks, and AppleWATCH, which was released this year, has to charge XNUM times in 1 days.
This is a drag on the continuation. If there is work to remove or charge by any means, I will stop putting on my hand in time.
The MISFIT SHINE is designed to withstand XNUM Xm waterproofness, so it's OK to wear it when taking a bath.
It will measure activity continuously for 24 hours!
Check the amount of activity with the MISFIT app
↑ MISFIT SHINE synchronizes with the smartphone application by Bluetooth.
↑ The sleep sensor is very useful because it senses "light sleep" and "deep sleep" just by putting on it.

More Fashionable in Collaboration with Other Companies

For example, this is a collaboration item with Swarovski.
↑ The activity meter MISFIT turns into a fashionable accessory.
↑ Collaboration with Coca-Cola has also been developed in various countries, it became the official wearable at the Sochi Olympics held in 2014.
↑ We partnered with the swimwear brand “speedo” and actually put MISFIT on the swimmer to conduct more accurate arm movement research and data acquisition.
It seems that you are able to recognize the swim style and the number of round trips that you have surprised!

High sensitivity touch sensor

This is also a lot of variation as information, it seems that usage and fun will also increase. Besides, 50m waterproof + button battery as long as it is nice to keep up to 6 months as usual!
In addition, I synchronize with a smartphone by Bluetooth, but it seems that the communication performance is also significantly improved because MISFIT2 has an entire body as an antenna.
Wearable as an interface between people and things
