Misfit, the American company owned by Fossil Group, has recently unveiled a brand new smartwatch that has everything you’d want: a slick design, a wide range of features making it extremely versatile and waterproof capability. Named the Misfit Vapor, presumably due to its resistance to water exposure, the new smartwatch may not bring any killer feature along, but offers a great package for its price, making it one of the best value watches on the market.
However, design alone will not win too many consumers over to the Misfit brand, especially when there are certain companies that make smartwatches similar in looks to luxury watches, albeit for ridiculous prices. Luckily, the device will also feature a huge variety of apps at launch, with the estimated number surpassing hundreds. That being said, whether the user has an Android device or an iPhone, they will be able to use apps such as Foursquare, Lifesum, Runtastic, Runkeeper, Uber and more, in addition to just about every Google app available on phones.
One final feature that will ensure the success of the Misfit Vapor is the fact that users are able to use the built-in Google Assistant in order to receive answers to questions or create reminders and alarms even with their hands full. Given that Google Assistant has been a hit on phones so far, it’s only natural that smartwatches with the assistant built in are going to be winners with users.
The Misfit Vapor is a true jack-of-all-trades: it doesn’t have any killer features or top-of-the-line specifications, but it offers a lot of value for such a low price. For those interested, the Misfit Vapor will be released in the second half of 2017 for the starting price of $199, and will be available in black and gold.
