There has been quite a bit of hype around smartwatches in the last few years. These watches, which go much beyond simple timekeeping, offer different features from music control to weather updates. Most smartwatches are for everyday-wear or mainly made for sports such as running or cycling. Rarely are these smartwatches made for the outdoorsy type nor are they specifically made for the extreme sport type. Until today!
Nixon’s Mission watch, which will be hitting the shelves in October this year, is their first watch powered by Android Wear™. On top of being a smartwatch, this bad boy is super-duper water resistant (100 meter/300 feet resistance), has an awesome GPS system and to top all this off is military grade dust and shock resistant!
Smartwatch for Board Lovers
The Mission is made with snowboarders and surfers in mind. The Nixon Mission App allows you to have access to real-time surf and snow conditions while the Nixon Trace App allows you to track your runs and waves, plus you can have a look at your stats while you ride or when you get back home.
Multiple Features for All Outdoor Enthusiasts
Nixon has made every tech-friendly outdoor enthusiast’s dreams come true. The Mission watch offers a screen that is adapted for wet fingers (talk about awesome!), a thermometer, altimeter, barometer, e-compass, gyrometer, accelometer as well as humidity sensors. The watch is compatible with both Android™ and iOS smartphones and can be easily charged with it’s magnetic charging dock.
Many Ways to Make Your Mission Watch Unique
Can it get any better? Oh, it sure can! The Mission Watch can be custom made to your needs and wants. You have over 20 wristband options, the bezel (the ring holding the cover of the watch) is offered in 15 different choices of materials and you can even choose your case.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to hold one of these bad boys in my hands! I can only dream of using the Mission’s great features on a pow day! Unfortunately for me and my tiny wrists, I personally won’t be able to own one but I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed for a women’s version sometime soon.
