Misfit Vapor is brand's first touchscreen smartwatch for $199

06 January 2017 3

Misfit is a brand known for releasing activity trackers with impressive battery backup running into weeks and even months. But now, it has launched its first-ever touchscreen smartwatch named Misfit Vapor. As it's a fully-fledged smartwatch, the battery life has taken a significant hit and it is capable of lasting up to only 2 days.

The Misfit Vapor smartwatch also features activity tracker which for heart rate and sleep monitoring along with other fitness-related activities. It sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 326ppi pixel density. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor with 4GB of internal storage at disposal. It is also said to be water resistant and swim proof for up to 50 meters.

The Vapor is also loaded with many sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, and optical heart rate sensor. It has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity options which means you can even pair Bluetooth headphones with the watch and start enjoying music without your smartphone. The Misfit Vapor has been launched in Jet Black and Rose Gold color options for $199.

Misfit's general manager, Preston Moxcey said:

“Misfit Vapor opens the next chapter of even more customizable options for our users. Touchscreen smartwatches offer an almost infinitely versatile platform on which to build new experiences, products, and services. The future of wearables will grow out of both truly wearable hardware and advanced software that is tailored to create a compelling, personalized user experience. Vapor takes us one step closer to achieving that vision."

  • I am very amused by the name of the device, actually. They call it "Misfit" and it looks so when you see the battery. It's really a misfit as we didn't expect the performance to fall down so much.

      • What a hit, OMG!!! Battery life that ran into weeks now comes down to only a couple of days!? How come such a steep fall?

          • I guess, it's a full-fledged smartwatch and that's why the battery life has taken such a bad hit. The smartwatch being a touchscreen and it says, it's full-fledged, so obviously, the battery would be affected.
