Unwrap the 1st #HiddenGemsApp for a chance to win a FREE Misfit Shine #sponsored #sweeps

The 12 Days of Hidden Gems has officially begun, and we're starting things off in the emerging world of IoT (the Internet of Things), spending the first few days looking at fitness accessories that work great with Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone.

The first Hidden Gem to be discovered is the Misfit Shine fitness tracker and in Hidden Gems fashion, we're giving all of you the chance to win a FREE Misfit Shine in our 12 Days of Hidden Gems Sweepstakes!!

Enter to Win a Misfit Shine

Step 1: Visit the 1st Day of Hidden Gems Misfit Shine feature article.

Step 2: Read the article and watch the awesome video! There are two ways to enter the sweepstakes. We're using Rafflecopter to administer the event, so you'll want to complete both tasks via the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of the page. Full terms and conditions can be found here.

First chance to win: Log into Windows Central and leave a quality comment on the Misfit Shine Hidden Gems article. We'd like to know how you would put the Misfit Shine to work in your daily life, so let us know in the comments there.

Second chance to win: Use the Rafflecopter widget to tweet out the phrase of the day.
