The world of wearables took a huge step up when Misfit and Swarovski partnered to create monitors that look well, gorgeous. The Swarovski monitors are both stylish and one even solves the problem of battery recharging, a huge issue in the world of wearables. Getting people to ‘wear the wearable’ is also one of the industry challenges. There shouldn’t be much of an issue here, these designs are truly gorgeous. Swarovski and Misfit have delivered with 9 stunning and unique accessories for all Misfit Shine devices. Two new, fully waterproof wearables:
A clear Swarovski Shine with a brilliant crystal face and a violet Swarovski Shine which uses a patented “energy crystal” technology to power itself. In “Misfit’s own words, “This is the world’s first wireless activity and sleep monitor that utilizes an energy harvesting technology to enable it to never require charging or replacing of batteries. Simply expose the violet Swarovski Shine to light to keep it charged.”
All that glitters in the world of wearables, is indeed, pure gold where a strategic partnership brings about a unique new kind of wearable that solves what are the issues in the space: batteries, data, wearability and design all wrapped up in an intriguing package. Misfit has a solid history in the wearables industry, and has already provided a stylish set of unique units that combine both design and functionality.
Getting the world onto the platform is perhaps the most difficult aspect of a wearable as we are already so busy with our cell phones, what do we need another device for? By making the item fashionable, covetable, desireable, is the true job of the wearables industry aside from innovation. Humans are funny beings who enjoy both good and bad habits, equally. With an aging population around the world, the chic and fun wearable is already in demand for this sector, but a youthful audience of millennials will be the ones to watch, as they are the most mobile-ready generation on the planet earth.
