Misfit Wearables activity tracker : Shine, elegant but rugged | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Ever since AgaMatrix Co-founder and Chairman Sonny Vu left the iBGStar-maker last July, industry watchers have kept a close eye on his new startup, Misfit Wearables. After bringing on former Apple CEO John Sculley as an investor and co-founder, raising a $7.6 million initial round of funding with participation by high-profile investors like Vinod Khosla, and building a team of about two dozen people working in San Francisco, Wales, and Vietnam, Misfit Wearables has finally revealed its first offering end of 2012.

Misfit soft launched a simple, all-metal, activity tracker called Shine through crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.

Hadi El Heneidi, Misfit Wearables’ Commercial Lead told MobiHealthNews. ”Our company has been focused both on the consumer side and on the medical side, but as a new startup, by focusing on the consumer side we can benefit from lower barriers to entry. [Starting with a medical product] means starting in a quicksand kind of scenario where you have to worry about regulations.”
