Misfit Shine Activity Tracker/Sleep Monitor/Watch in the Pebbled Black Leather Band

I am in love with my Shine Activity tracker. I get a lot of compliments on my watch, but when I show them how it synchs with my phone and monitors my activity and sleep, the response is always, “Whoa, that is so cool!” I must warn you that I wouldn’t use the wrist band that comes with the Shine as it can pop out too easily. Instead, buy the leather watch band shown above or the silver mesh band below.
