Misfit Shine teams with Lose It! calorie-counting to keep your diet on course

Just last month, another sleep-tracking option came to Misfit’s Shine activity-logging app, and now, users can couple caloric burn with the intake. Thanks to a cooperative effort with Lose It! — a nutrition monitoring app/service — you’ll be able to log what you consume and keep track of all the corresponding stats across the web, Android and iOS with the diet-minded outfit. From there, send over Shine’s collected data to calculate your overall progress. As you might expect, Lose It! offers barcode scanning to enter foods and customized plans to keep things simple, but a $40 annual subscription is needed to leverage the skills of an activity tracker (Jawbone’s Up line, Nike FuelBand and Fitbit devices are already supported) or fitness app. We’re waiting on official word from Misfit if that’s the case here, and we’ll update as soon as we hear back.
