2017’s Misfit Vapor smartwatch was once just a little disappointing. The watch didn’t include NFC for contactless bills, and regardless of what we had been firstly instructed, the Vapor didn’t have a integrated GPS both. Now Misfit is seeking to make issues proper with the brand new Misfit Vapor 2.

This new watch nonetheless appears to be like very similar to the first-gen Moto 360, which I don’t suppose is a nasty factor.

It additionally has an upgraded middle fee sensor that may observe resting and energetic middle fee, in addition to 4GB of integrated garage and 512MB of RAM.

Unfortunately this isn’t an entire improve from the unique Vapor. The Misfit Vapor 2 is powered by means of the growing older Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, no longer the more moderen 3100. I’ll withhold my judgement till I am getting one in for evaluation, however I’m no longer positive about this. The newest model of Wear OS coupled with the Snapdragon Wear 2100 doesn’t be offering the best consumer revel in.

The Misfit Vapor 2 will move on sale “quickly” in eight colorways beginning at $249.99.
