Gear : Bracelets : Misfit-Swarovski Shine Collection

Gear : Bracelets : Misfit-Swarovski Shine Collection

The latest from Misfit is undoubtedly its trendiest fitness tracker yet. Misfit has always strived for fashion, similar to the approach Withings has taken with its Activité and Activité Pop, but with the new Swarovski partnership, Misfit has taken it one step further.

By combining the Shine with nine different accessories, the fitness tracker is now even more of a discreet part of your day to day wardrobe. The different jewelry-esque pieces are a bit pricier than the Misfit Flash or original Misfit Shine though you get a diverse assortment to choose from.

From the wrap around Slake bracelets, the three pendants and the fancier watchbands, you can spend between $69.99 to $149.99 (about £46.14-98.88, AU$85.66-183.57). There are also three different sets that come with more than one accessory with prices that range between $169.99 to $249.99 (about £112.07-164.81, AU$208.05-305.96).

Then there's a solar powered jewel that is perhaps the most interesting part of the Shine collection - and it's not even up for pre-ordering yet. However it was on the CES 2015 show floor brightly on display.

The violet Swarovski Shine uses a patented "energy crystal" technology to allow for efficient solar charging on a small surface to power itself. The way the crystal is cut also supposedly allows the jewel to harness light better.

Misfit is claiming that the purple hued crystal is the "the world's first wireless activity and sleep tracker that utilizes an energy harvesting technology." The Shine simply needs to be exposed to light the retain a charge and doesn't require a cord or batteries.

Both the clear and violet crystal face designs feature the usual trackers: step, distance, calories, sleep quality and duration. They also use the same Misfit app

They are also waterproof to 50 meters, and with a hard double-tap on the top of the crystal, it will tell the time via a glowing ring of LEDs.

Though each time the representative tried to tap the crystal, it took a little while for the lights to pop up. My own taps apparently weren't enough for the sensor to register and the rep had to do it herself. Once the Shine worked, it was also difficult to actually see the LEDs underneath the crystal face. I couldn't tell if the devices weren't working or defective, after all, the battery lives are supposed to outlast the barrage of CES attendees, right? I'd have to test out the Swarovski's longer to see just how well they work, but they were undeniably fishy on the show floor.

The new wrist bands were comfortable and definitely fashionable. The previous Misfit straps already fit me decently and these weren't any different. The Slake wrap around was a little loose but should fit normal wrists perfectly fine. I'm not a huge fan of jewelry but I ended up longingly eyeing the black Slake strap.

The solar powered Misfit Shine is also a reasonable step for fitness tracking wearables. Charging all my smartwatches and fitness trackers has always been a huge hassle - especially with proprietary cords and cradles. Misfit has already been fantastic for its four and six month long battery lives with the original Shine and Flash, respectively. Now with the promise of a lifetime battery thanks to solar energy, it seems like the company will forge a new path for wearables.

The Misfit Swarovski Shine collection will be available for pre-order in the US exclusively on misfit.com, and will be for sale this spring in Swarovski retail locations in the US, Hong Kong and China and on Swarovski.com. The solar powered Shine will be on sale in June. Other global markets have yet to be announced though should also be on the roster for release.

Cars : 2015 Lotus Elise S Cup

Cars : 2015 Lotus Elise S Cup

After being spied testing on the Nurburgring Nordschleife on multiple occasions, the wraps have officially been taken off the 2015 Lotus Elise S Cup. Created as a road-going variant of the Elise S Cup R racer, the hardcore Elise is the most potent the company has ever offered for street us.

Powering the 2015 Lotus Elise S Cup is the same 1.8-litre supercharged four-cylinder engine as the Cup R race car. As a result, it produces an identical 217 hp at 6800 rpm as well as 184 lb-ft of torque at 4600 rpm. Thanks to these figures and the meagre overall weight of the Elise S Cup (just 932kg), it can rocket from zero to 96 km/h (60 mph) in just 4.2 seconds as well as a top speed of 225 km/h!

From a visual and aerodynamic front, the Lotus Elise S Cup is essentially identical to the Cup R. As a result, it features the same revised front bumper including the addition of a massive carbon fibre front splitter, new side skirts helping to provide additional downforce, lightened sports wheels and more. Those wheels measure 16-inch at the front and 17-inch in the rear and feature 175/55 ZR16 and 225/45 ZR17 Yokohama Advan Neova tyres respectively. At the back, the same rear wing as the Cup R is featured as is the massive rear diffuser and centrally exiting tailpipe.

This kit helps add an extra 66 kg of downforce at 160 km/h as well as 125 kg of additional downforce at the car’s 225 km/h top speed. Thanks to these additions as well as the potent little engine, it laps the small British automaker’s test track a full three seconds faster than the Elise S.

One key area where the road car differs however is that it is wearing standard Lotus Elise headlights. By comparison, the track-only special features completely black headlights because it doesn’t need them. A road-going example does of course. Finally, the production car doesn’t feature the racing livery of the Cup R.

Discussing the 2015 Lotus Elise Cup S, the company’s boss Jean-Marc Gales said, “The Lotus Elise S Cup is all about the pure driving experience with the Lotus attributes of high performance, light weight and excellent ride and handling. It is perfect for the driver who desires a quick, authentic, desirable and competitive sports car.”

News : Lil Wayne Suing Birdman For $8M

News : Lil Wayne Suing Birdman For $8M

Things done changed… According to TMZ reports:

Birdman and Lil Wayne have officially declared war … settlement talks have broken down and Wayne will now sue his mentor, claiming among other things Birdman owes him $8 million.

As TMZ reported … the 2 titans tried coming to terms this week but it wasn’t meant to be. Now Wayne will ask a judge to declare him free of Cash Money and Birdman’s control. Wayne says Birdman has violated their contract by withholding the release of his new album.

As for the $8 MIL claim … Wayne says Birdman owed the money for his latest album — it was supposed to be an advance.

Birdman has held firm … he will release the album “in due time,” but clearly that’s not good enough for Wayne.

We’re told Wayne will keep recording but he will release his works outside of the Cash Money umbrella.


The real question is…who get’s custody of Nicki, Drake, and Tyga in the divorce?

Singles : Charli XCX : Doing It ft. Rita Ora

Singles : Charli XCX : Doing It ft. Rita Ora

Listen To : Charli XCX : Doing It

Miley's "Party in the U.S.A.". Ke$ha's "Tik Tok". Katy's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)". This is the chart-clobbering, brain-zapping, awe-inducing 21st century lineage to which "Doing It" clearly aspires—and just-as-clearly nails. You know it from that opening giggle, the kind of "what me worry?" laugh someone might let slip after splashing a creepy barfly with water, stealing a six pack, or draining a half-court shot. It is the sound of invincibility, of youth, of not having to be anywhere until tomorrow afternoon. Charli XCX is familiar with this sound.

Along with its bubble-pop perfection, "Doing It" doubles as a joyous sign of progress. The last time I can remember the phrase "doing it" so prominently featured on a hit song was on LL Cool J's gross-at-the-time (and utterly-gross-in-retrospect) "Doin' It" in 1996. (Sample lyric: "Baby stick it out, here comes the man of steel.") (Sorry.) But for all the implicit and explicit fun Charli has on "Doing It", the song is not even necessarily about sex. It's the latest salvo in the current wave of female BFF-core that has been dominating the Hot 100 for months, made even clearer by the track's new remix with Charli's fellow Londoner Rita Ora (who is really getting an awful lot of chances to break out Stateside). Ora's performance neither adds nor takes away from the song's instant-party jolt, but her mere presence—especially in the video, where the dudes are the ones in pasties—can't help but bolster the sense of camaraderie. Because "Doing It" is one huge high-five, and high-fiving yourself looks pretty dumb.
