The Nixon Mission Is A New Android Wear Smartwatch That’s Waterproof Up To 100 Meters
Today watchmaker Nixon has announced their first Android Wear smartwatch, meant for action. The Nixon Mission is designed to be resistant to water up to 100 meters, or 10 ATM. The company is aiming the watch for those involved with skiing, surfing, snowboarding, and similar sports.
Out of the box the Mission will come pre-loaded with a software suite powered by Surfline and Snocountry, giving users real-time access to current conditions directly from the watch face.
The Nixon Mission is also shock resistant and features Corning Gorilla Glass for added durability. This is also the first Android Wear device powered by the new Snapdragon 2100 Wear chipset from Qualcomm, specifically designed for use on Android Wear smartwatches.
It’s unconfirmed exactly when the Mission will launch (or if you’ll choose to accept it), but when it does finally launch the price is expected to fall somewhere around $400 with a variety of watch bands and colors available.
