Comparison of activity trackers

Recently I have be wearing multiple fitness trackers to as part of an experiment at work. I have a +Fitbit Flex, a +Jawbone UP and a +Misfit Wearables Shine.

Spending time with @sidderb last week he shared an R script to pull the data from his fitbit, I took it one step further this week and wrote the equivalent R to get the same data from the Jawbone. 

I'm impressed how close they track each other, and relieved that my claims over dinner that the the fitbit is more generous have been shown by the data. 

I would love to get access to the misfit API as a bit to try the third platform
