​Misfit redesigns Shine 2 Action Clip to stop the damn tracker falling out

It looks like Misfit's finally solved its strap problem
​Misfit redesign Shine 2 Action Clip

Misfit has redesigned the Shine 2's strap to make its fitness tracker more secure.

Problems with the tracking unit dropping out of the band was a big complaint with the first Misfit Shine, but the introduction of the Action Clip on the Shine 2 was supposed to remedy that. Unfortunately, it wasn't successful, with Wareable's review highlighting that the Shine 2 was even less secure than the original.

Misfit, which was bought by Fossil late last year, has now returned with an improved Action Clip, which partially encases the Shine. It's also changing packaging to deliver the Shine 2 already installed into its clip.

"We've updated the Shine 2 Action Clip so it's more secure than the first and will come pre-installed for users," a spokesperson for Misfit told Wareable.

We've received an early look at the new Shine design and it's certainly more secure than before – a definite improvement. That wouldn't be difficult, as our Shine 2 managed to detach less that an hour into the original review period. However, we're going to keep it on our wrist for a couple of months and then update our Misfit Shine 2 review.

    I just bought my Misfit Shine 2, it came with the new Action Clip pre-installed.  My arm got snagged on a chair at work and the damn thing popped out.

    :(

    I had an early Shine2 and it fell out all the time, I complained and they a new strap with a bar across the back. Didn't really help and Shine2 still fell out and eventually lost it.

    Misfit did replace (I had to pay shipping) and the new 'bowl' has made a HUGE difference, though it still has popped out on the odd occasion- usually playing active sports

    I got the NEW Shine 2 , fell out first day, just not their thing. I have a Moov Now, and works great. Just got the new Misfit Ray, but it only records sleep at night time hours. Tech support told me it was not designed to record sleep during daytime, so if you work late, say Midnight, go to bed say 2 or 3, it will say you got 3 hours sleep....REALLY

    I've had my Shine Speedo since Christmas, and I have never had the tracker fall out of the band.  I was mostly using the clasp but because of the magnet, and I work in a gym, the clasp would always get stuck on the weights and come off, but it made enough noise I have not managed to lose it, until Monday. The magnet ripped right out of the clasp and I lost the tracker, luckily it fell off in the car so I found it the next morning. I have more complaints about the design of the clasp than I do of the wrist band.

What do you think?
