Wearable tech isn’t new. Smart home tech isn’t new. Wearable tech that integrates with your smart home tech isn’t even that new, but the Misfit Shine 2 is new – just a few months old – and it functions as a smart home controller (though with some limitations).If you’re looking into buying a new wearable, fitness tracking device, the Misfit Shine 2 is worth looking into. It’s a fitness and sleep tracker, and as mentioned, also works to control some smart home technology.
Talking, as I was in my last post, about the Internet of Things, leads me to wearable technology which is already generating incredible amounts of data. Devices such as fitness trackers (for example, the Misfit Shine) are tracking our activity and sleep in fine detail (and making us realize, in the process, just how damn lazy we really are) and this is just scratching the surface of what we can quantify about ourselves.
