Misfit Vapor gets delayed until October, still priced at $199

The Misfit Vapor was first announced at CES 2017 at the top of the year and was its first smartwatch offering. While it was announced with a custom OS, it would later shift over to leverage Android Wear 2.0. Although the firm did state that it would arrive in late summer, it appears that there has been a delay, pushing the release date back to fall.

As far as specifications go, nothing has changed with the Misfit Vapor including:

  • A stunning 1.39” full round AMOLED display, accentuating a vibrant color palette in 326 pixels per inch
  • An accelerometer, altimeter, gyroscope, optical heart rate sensor, GPS, and microphone to deliver world-class fitness tracking and smartwatch applications straight to the wrist
  • A touch bezel allows users to seamlessly browse Vapor’s menu of watch faces and applications, and respond to notifications, without obscuring content on the display
  • A Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear™ 2100 processor and 4GB of memory as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Water resistance to 50 meters
  • A durable 44mm satin-finished stainless steel upper casing in Jet Black or Rose Gold

Although the $199 price tag may be attractive, the smartwatch will not offer a dedicated GPS antenna. It does offer connected GPS, meaning, if you have a smartphone tethered to it, you'll be able to utilize the GPS provided by the smartphone and consume that data. The Misfit Vapor is scheduled to arrive sometime in October.
