Misfit unveils the Vapor, the fitness wearable company's first smartwatch with touchscreen

Misfit today announced the Vapor Smartwatch, its first touchscreen enabled fitness watch that offers an impressive list of features and a pretty reasonable price. The Vapor is scheduled to arrive later this year.

With the Vapor smartwatch from Misfit, you are getting a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 powered watch with a 1.39″ full round AMOLED display (326ppi), gyroscope, optical heart rate sensor, GPS, microphones, 4GB storage, and 2-day battery life. All of that tech is housed within a 44mm watch case made of hand-polished stainless steel that hits your wrist with interchangeable watch straps. The device charges via cradle. 

At first glance it really doesn’t look all that different (at all!) from other round-face smartwatches. It's made of stainless steel and has interchangeable straps. Some of the interactions on the watch have a dissolving or vaporizing aesthetic (hence the name); when you tap on the time on the main screen, it dissolves into a "GOAL!" screen, to show activity levels. The display doesn’t have a "flat tire," which is nice I suppose.

As for unique features, the device is swimproof and water resistant up to 50 meters. It also includes a “touch bezel” that allows you to navigate the UI of the watch without covering up content.

The Vapor is priced at $199 and comes in either Jet Black or Rose Gold finishes.

Side Note: I guess if this piece of tech never comes about it will be appropriately named (Vapor ware)
