This tracker is the size of a 20c coin and the next big thing in fitness gadgets

It’s not cheap but might be nice for the runner in your life this Christmas.

SO THIS IS the Misfit Shine Fitness Tracker from Misfit Wearables.

Why We Love It: A lot of fitness gadgets that track your progress are bulky and only come in certain wristband styles. Misfit Shine is the size of a quarter, and can be worn anywhere. The design is diamond-cut from a  block of aircraft-grade aluminum, is the size of a quarter, and runs on a replaceable battery that lasts up to six months.

The Shine syncs easily with its app by placing the metal dot on your phone screen to download data in seconds. It tracks walking, jogging, running, cycling, and swimming (the Shine is waterproof), and weighs less than 10 grams.

Shine took second place in the Consumer Electronics Show’s Last Gadget Standing competition. It can be clipped onto clothing with a clasp, on a necklace, or worn like a watch.
