Misfit launches GPS-ready Vapor 2 smartwatch

Misfit launches GPS-ready Vapor 2 smartwatch

Thought the Google Pixel 3 was leaked a lot? The Misfit Vapor 2 trumps it after being leaked months ago. It looked for a while as though Misfit would launch it without announcing it because of this. But, they held off and finally announced it this month.

As you can expect, this was anticlimactic for Misfit. The Vapor 2 was supposed to be announced to fanfare as their first proper stab at a smartwatch. It didn’t go to plan, but at least the device has lived up to its promises.

With built-in GPS, NFC support (available in select countries), heart-rate tracking and Google’s latest version of Wear OS, the Vapor 2 has a good specification and the round AMOLED touchscreen display (with 328 ppi) looks fantastic. We love AMOLED technology in smartwatches because on a screen this small, the colours pop.

It looks the part too. It has a satin stainless-steel case in a few anodized finishes, including rose gold, silver and all black. The case is available in 41mm and 46mm sizes, so it’s suitable for small or thick wrists. The original Misfit Vapor was only available in 44mm, so it’s nice to see that Misfit have given people more choice this time around.

The battery is 330mAh in size, which is small. Misfit say the battery will last all day, but during extensive use we don’t see that being realistic.

Devices with a battery that small running Wear OS on a Snapdragon 2100 CPU (an older processor, the new one is the 3100) with GPS and heart rate tracking die well before that in reviews. Suffice to say, it’ll be interesting to see how it fares.

Pricing and availability

The Misfit Vapor 2 is priced from $249.99. That’s at the low end of the spectrum for a Wear OS device. Well worth it when you consider the features. You can buy it now through Misfit, with shipments commencing in the next few months.
