Do you have to put the device on the screen to sync every time? Or does it sync via Bluetooth after the first setup?

    no. it syncs via bluetooth LE. as long as the shine is nearby, you can just tap sync on the app then tap the circle where it says to place the shine.

  • The Shine uses a low-power bluetooth connection to sync. Because its made of aluminum, the bluetooth range is limited. Although the instructions tell you to place it on the iPhone's screen, you can in fact sync it by placing the Shine NEAR the phone and tapping the screen with your finger.

  • You put it on the screen every time. And it always uses Bluetooth to sync; putting it on the screen is Misfit's trick to get the device close to the phone.
