SCUBA Diving with the Shine From Misfit Wearables – Update

In Episode 001 of the Under Pressure Divecast I introduced the Shine fitness monitor from Misfit Wearables. At that time I hadn’t yet been able to dive with it and today I’m happy to report that after three dive locations the verdict is in and the Shine… well… it shines!

My dives with the Shine:

  • The Homestead Crater, Midway, UT
  • The Blue Hole, Santa Rosa, NM
  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The video above was shot in the Blue Hole, NM.

The facts – the Shine has been down to over 100 feet and… it just works!

If you need a fitness partner on your next dive take a look at the Shine.

Destinations of Opportunity

There you are… you’re traveling for business or visiting your relatives; walking down a boardwalk… and then it hits you… ‘I could be diving!’

How often do you take the opportunity to go SCUBA diving when you are traveling for other reasons? Do you avoid packing your gear if you’re not going on a ‘dive trip’ simply because you’d only get one or two dives in anyway?

Here are 5 reasons divers lose dive opportunities!

  • It’s too much to carry.
  • That’s not the point of this trip.
  • The airlines charge too much for checked bags.
  • What if I carry it all on my trip and can’t dive?
  • I would only get a dive or two in anyway.

Now, let’s talk about strategies overcome these excuses and make every trip a ‘dive trip’!
