Misfit Vapor confirmed to run Android Wear 2.0
Misfit Vapor was announced back in January as the first touchscreen smartwatch to be launched by the Fossil-owned brand. However, one key element was somehow forgotten back then - the operating system. This omission led to many rumors about a proprietary mobile operating system being developed for it, and now those rumors have just been turned to dust by Misfit.
Earlier today, Misfit published a blog post saying that "Misfit Vapor will be powered by Android Wear 2.0, the latest wearables operating system available from Google." Thanks to this software solution, Misfit Vapor users will be able to enjoy a customizable watch face, on-board music functionality, enhanced fitness features, as well as Google Assistant built-in.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, next to 4 GB memory and multiple connectivity features, including WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS, Misfit Vapor will hit the market "in late summer" for $199 USD. This wearable is compatible with handsets running Android 4.3 or later, as well as iOS 9 or later.
