Misfit Vapor smartwatch delayed until October


Bad news for those anxious to buy Misfit's highly-anticipated Vapor smartwatch, as the company has just announced that its wearable device has been delayed by a month or so.

Unveiled early this year at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Vapor was supposed to hit the shelves sometime this summer. Unfortunately, Misfit confirmed that the smartwatch will now ship in October. On the flip side, Misfit Vapor's specs and price remain unchanged, so you can expect to be able to buy it for just $199.

Misfit's Vapor smartwatch features a 1.39-inch AMOLED display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor. It packs 4GB storage, as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity support.

Naturally, it will come with Android Wear 2.0 on board and it will work with Google Assistant. Also, it will be water resistant (up to 50 meters), but it will not feature standalone GPS. According to Misfit, Vapor users will be able to view their distance, steps, and calories burned on their wrist when they go for a run, but the wearable device will include “connected GPS Location Services.”

Even so, Misfit Vapor could be a decent alternative to other, more expensive smartwatches that will make it to market this fall such as the Gear S3 Sport.

Calling something you wear "Vapor" was bound to create delays.
