Although there are a few rugged smartwatches already on the market, they usually target active users who do not take many risks during their daily routine. For example, the Moto 360 Sport aims runners, while the Casio WSD-F10 is the ideal time piece for hikers and others who enjoy spending their time in the great outdoors. On the other hand, the new Nixon Mission targets more active people, since it offers full protection from water and the elements.

Nixon Mission has a circular AMOLED display and has been certified to carry a 10-ATM water resistance rating, thus being able to survive underwater for up to almost 330 feet. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, the Mission runs Google Android Wear "features a suite of custom applications tailored to action sports," such as Surfline, SnoCountry and Trace.

The new smartwatch will come with a very rich set of customization options, including up to 15 bezels and over 20 different bands. Some pieces of information like battery capacity and autonomy are not public yet, but there is plenty of time to check them out. Nexus Mission is expected to hit the market later this year for a price around $400 USD.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
