Misfit's new Vapor X smartwatch powered by Wear OS goes official
It looks like Misfit has dropped the numbering of their new smartwatches and adopted a more non-traditional naming scheme. The sequel to the Vapor 2 is called Vapor X and it's now available for purchase for a limited-time introductory price of just $200.

However, after the promotion ends, the Misfit Vapor X will sell for $280, which makes it $20 more expensive than the previous Vapor 2 model. According to Misfit, the Vapor X is the company's lightest and most efficient smartwatch powered by Wear OS. The wearable device weighs just 43g, while it's 42mm case is made of lightweight aluminum alloy.

Specs-wise, the smartwatch sports a 1.19-inch AMOLED display and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 processor, coupled with 512MB RAM and 4GB storage. Misfit claims that the Vapor X should provide a full day of battery power, which is rather standard for brand new smartwatches, so there's really nothing unusual here.

Furthermore, Misfit's Vapor X features built-in GPS, as well as support for NFC (Near Field Communication) and Google Pay. The smartwatch is waterproof up to 30 meters deep and includes a heart rate sensor. Of course, the Vapor X is compatible with both iPhone and Android phones.

It definitely looks awesome but I'm not buying another Wear watch until they start using at least 1gb of ram

Considering Fossil announced their Generation 5 with 1GB of Ram, you would expect all new Wear OS units to have the same.

No kidding! I'm getting the Gen 5 in the next few weeks, but I was shocked that the Misfit really is just a rebranded Fossil Sport. No 1 GB of RAM, no 8 GB of memory. I'm holding my breath for the Diesel watch that should be coming out in the next couple weeks or so. The On Guard 2.5 is sexy and I may get the next version if its based off of the Gen 5.

I wonder is Skagen's Falster 3 model will have 1GB of ram too. I ordered the Gen 5 too myself.

For f**k sake invent battery technology that lasts one week at least. Sick of charging phone every night.

You would become an easy millionaire or even billionaire if you create & patent that.

Assuming you meant smartwatch,, I totally agree. I think by now we should see smartwatches lasting a minimum of 3 days without needing to to rely on turning things off to help the battery last. :(
