Misfit Vapor confirmed to run Android Wear 2.0, no NFC support on board

Unveiled back in January at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Misfit Vapor smartwatch was a bit of a mystery until now. Although we've been able to get our hands on one and provide you with some photos of the smartwatch, Misfit didn't want to offer any details on the operating system powering the Vapor.

Well, it looks like the company couldn't keep the secret anymore since the Vapor will be available for purchase in late summer. On top of that, the Misfit Vapor has been recently showcased at Baselworld, the place where some of the biggest watchmakers in the world come together to present their new products.

Long story short, Misfit Vapor seems to be one of the cheapest Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches soon to be available on the market. The company confirmed, once again, its wearable device will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, along with 4GB storage.

The smartwatch features a 44m body and sports a circular 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 326ppi (pixel per inch). According to Misfit, the smartwatch's battery should get you throughout two days of use.

Misfit Vapor features water resistance up to 50 meters and includes built-in GPS, as well as both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Unfortunately, the smartwatch lacks NFC support, but it does come with heart rate sensor, altimeter, accelerometer, and gyroscope.

It will be available in both Jet Black and Rose Gold finishes from late summer for only $199. It's a great affordable alternative to all those luxury Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches that were announced in the last week or so, don't you think?

The original Huawei Watch remains the king of Android Wear, design wise anyway. The Huawei Watch 2 and Huawei Watch 2 Classic are ugly as sin, as are LG's latest offerings and all the premium Android Wear watch maker offerings. Huawei had such potential with the Watch 2...yes they have great features, but design wise, I don't want them anywhere near my wrist. My original Huawei Watch has shipped and will be here Tuesday...I cannot wait to have this beautiful piece of tech on my wrist. It easily competes with my Gear S2 Classic as the best looking smartwatch.

1.39 inch AMOLED with no flat tire and 326ppi sounds perfect. Put in a decent battery and I can't see any downsides to it - except the lack of a brushed stainless steel option.

44mm is a bit on the large size, I did prefer when companies release 2 different sizes. Glad to see a heart rate monitor I wonder that the thickness will be, loves thicker than 11mm which would be a shame.
