Who We Are

The Misfit TeamOur San Francisco crew - Wallace, Rachel, Patrick and Mai missing from picture

The Misfit TeamOur Vietnam crew - Huy, Loc, Chi and Thanh missing from picture

We're focused on developing great wearable products: things that a lot of people would wear all the time for a long time. Like jeans and t-shirts. We aim to pioneer the emerging world of wearables, by making products and services in the consumer health and fitness space to inspire people be more active and develop healthy habits. We were founded in 2011, and Misfit Shine is our first product.

Why Indiegogo?

Part of the idea behind the lean startup is to prove demand, and build products in a rapid, user-centered design cycle. By reaching out on Indiegogo, we can assess our demand, build a stronger relationship with our early adopters, and use feedback to make our product as amazing as possible.

Use of Funds

We've built our prototypes. We’ve figured out our supply chain. We need your help to take the next step. We’re looking for funds to put Misfit Shine into production. We know what we’re doing; we've led the development and manufacturing of more than a dozen hardware products in previous companies, including the first ever iPhone-compatible hardware medical device - so we know exactly what's required to pull this off. You are getting in early, and getting a premium product ahead of everyone else.

We’re asking you to help us make Misfit Shine a reality.
