Misfit is a name you would have recalled for the simplest of the wearable devices that help track the fitness but don’t look any bad. Finally, the company is jumping into the device range where the user doesn’t have to wear something without a display. The Misfit Vapor smartwatch is the first from the company that has a touchscreen.
The Misfit Vapor looks a lot like a regular watch having a 44mm round case and what shows up on the front is a 1.39-inch, 326ppi AMOLED display. Internally, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, an accelerometer, altimeter, gyroscope, optical heart rate monitor, GPS, and microphone.
Thanks to the 4GB internal storage in the watch, you can store some music, and with the Bluetooth & Wi-Fi connectivity, you can listen to the music with wireless headphones connected to the watch. Given all this, you won’t be able to use the watch for over two days on a single charge.
The Misfit Vapor is water resistant to 50 meters and it is made with stainless steel body, and this property gives it the feature that most of the other Misfit trackers have – swimming exercise tracking. The bezel on the watch helps navigate through the apps and options, and the content on the center of the screen stays the same, undisturbed. Two important inclusions that get a mention are the heart rate sensor and the GPS. These both were not seen in the previous Misfit trackers but now, they finally are to offer the additional features.
As for the software, it doesn’t have Android Wear or any such OS but a custom one with the apps from Misfit. The watch works with both, Android and iOS devices, and the watch will be available later in 2017 for $199. Samsung’s $199 Gear Fit 2 too has a lot packed in, but the Vapor is a sure good choice with the better design, if not the features.
