    The Shine is fully waterproof to around 50 meters so no problem with the beach or snorkelling. The The Shine is fully waterproof to around 50 meters so no problem with the beach or snorkelling. The body is made from Aluminium and the band is silicone so should also not be a huge issue with the salt water. Of course its always best to wash anything after use in salt water either way and given the Shine is fully water proof this is pretty easy to do.

    Yes (and no). if you keep the shine on your wrist, it doesn't pick up the activity from cycling. H Yes (and no). if you keep the shine on your wrist, it doesn't pick up the activity from cycling. However, if you transfer the shine to your ankle, either tucking it into your sock or using the magnetic clip, it picks up the motion of your leg. However, since its picking up the motion of cycling, it doesn't know how hard you are going. On a slow recovery ride, it rated that as intense exercise. When it was on my wrist for a 3.5 hour ride, it recorded mild exercise. So it depends upon where you position the shine.

    Tap it 3 times when you are in bed. When you start walking again, the item will stop tracking your Tap it 3 times when you are in bed. When you start walking again, the item will stop tracking your sleep. At least this is what I observed.

    With the current version, it can track whether you are in Light Sleep or Deep Sleep. It will show you a time-based graph showing you when you are in Light Sleep and when you are in Deep Sleep. It also gives you a summary of total number of hours of sleep and total number hours of Deep Sleep. I guess the Deep Sleep Tracking has something to do with your movement in sleep.

    I have been wearing it for 3 weeks now and I started noticing that the program is starting to "learn" when I would be going to bed. After synchronization with the App in the morning, it will show you two instances of sleeps - the first is a "projected" sleeping period & the second is the actual sleeping period (taken when you triple-tapped the shine).

    But it isn't without any downside - my wife's Shine does not sync as well as mine. It may take her 2~3 times before successfully synchronized sometimes (but after de-linking/re-linking, it seems to sync better this past 1.5 weeks). Another thing is that it does not respond to tapping very well. We often have to give them a few more tries before they react. Also, don't expect it to be highly accurate in tracking steps and calorie burns.

    However, we can live with that quite well. I would say both my wife & I love the Shine. We have practically replaced our watches too (it has an interesting way of time-telling). It also gives me motivation to hit my daily target. 4 of 5 Stars product in my opinion - Simple, Nice Design and it works! Though not highly accurate, it is not of any critical importance because it is the motivation that pushes you to walk another KM that counts.
