Misfit Vapor being delayed until October
Misfit unveiled the Vapor smartwatch in the first days of 2017, during the CES trade show in Las Vegas. Back then, it was expected to arrive this summer and some details were still unknown. The last time we heard about it, it was back in late March, when all the specs became official and Misfit confirmed that the smartwatch should launch with Android Wear 2.0 on board.
Now, the time has come for Misfit Vapor to hit the market. Unfortunately, we will not see it arrive "in late summer" as Misfit said it would. According to The Verge, "The company now says the watch will ship in October, a month or so after summer ends, a slight delay from its initial timeline." Fortunately, it looks like the price and its technical details remain the same.
Misfit Vapor should hit the market for US$199.99 and, although it comes with a rugged design and is water resistant up to 50 meters, it lacks an integrated GPS module. This means those using it to track their runs should also carry a smartphone to provide location data to the watch.
If you missed the news about it so far, you should know that Misfit's Vapor is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor and has a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen, next to 4 GB storage space, all tucked inside a 44 mm satin-finished stainless steel case. It connects to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth and WiFi.
