Android Wear 2.0 Vapor smartwatch coming from Misfit this summer


We’ve been covering Misfit fitness tracking wearable devices since the original Misfit Shine that I reviewed back in 2013. Misfit trackers have evolved since the Shine and in the next few months, we’ll be seeing a brand new device from Misfit that looks like their most ambitious activity tracking wearable so far. The Misfit Vapor is a true touchscreen smartwatch powered by the Android Wear 2.0 operating system. 

First announced at CES 2017 in January, the Vapor was called the best smartwatch and best fitness gadget of 2017.

The Vapor smartwatch has a lot going for it. It has a 1.39” full round 326 PPI AMOLED display, is water resistant up to 50 meters, so you can swim and shower with it. It has a built-in optical heart rate monitor, and GPS so you won’t need to carry your phone with you when you’re out on a run or walk.

Don’t think that the Vapor is all workout and no play. because it also can be used as a stand-alone music player and you can install hundreds of Android Wear apps on the watch to really make it your own.

Priced at $199, the Misfit Vapor will be compatible with phones running Android 4.3 or iOS 9 or higher. For more details visit Misfit’s Vapor page and be sure to sign up to get notified as soon as they become available this summer.

    Interesting – they recently emailed me as a Misfit app user on a Pebble watch, looking to lure us abandoned owners to this watch. I’d be tempted if I hadn’t already bought a refurb Apple watch. But I think Fitbit (who bought Pebble) needs to come out with it’s better smartwatch pretty quickly to compete with this.

      Agreed. If this is a full-fledged Android Wear watch, it will crush the Fitbit watch.
