This Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100-powered smart wearable is Misfit's first one with a touchscreen display and promises to launch later this year for a price of $199 USD.

Although Android Wear 2.0 is expected to become a very popular wearable platform later this year and quite a few smartwatches that would soon launch with it on board were unveiled this week, Misfit is choosing a different path. The upcoming Misfit Vapor is the first touchscreen smartwatch of the popular fitness tracker company, but will not use Google's operating system for wearables.

Misfit Vapor is similar to many Android Wear smartwatches, having a 44 mm stainless steel case that houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, 4 GB internal storage, and a 1.39-inch round AMOLED touchscreen display. The battery charges with a magnetic cradle and promises up to two days of autonomy on a single charge.

In addition to the above, this smartwatch also comes with water resistance up to 50 meters, an optical heart rate sensor, gyroscope, GPS support, microphone, as well as WiFi connectivity. The color options will be Rose Gold and Jet Black. While the price of $199 USD is apparently official, the launch date is not public yet. For now, Misfit only says that Vapor would hit the market "later this year."

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
