Yesterday, Best Buy jumped the gun and put up a listing for the Misfit Vapor 2 smartwatch
. The timepiece was officially announced today by the company, basically confirming all of the information that Best Buy managed to post yesterday. First of all, the Misfit Vapor 2 will be available in two sizes, 41mm and 46mm. Both are priced at the same $249.99. If you upgrade the band, the price goes up to $269.99.
The 41mm unit features a 1.2-inch display, while the 46mm model carries a 1.4
-inch screen. The watch is powered by the older Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform, and includes 4GB of storage along with 512MB of RAM. The smaller model contains a 300mAh battery, while the battery on the larger unit weighs in at 330mAh. A magnetic charger is included in the box. The Vapor 2 is compatible with both iOS and Android handsets, and is pre-installed with Wear OS.
The device comes with a redesigned heart rate monitor, and a standalone GPS will show you routes for running. The screen alerts you to calls, texts, emails and app notifications. You don't need your phone to access the music player and the on-device storage, and the watch is water resistant to 30M (98 feet). That means that you can wear it while swimming in shallow water.
