The ever-present Apple Watch comes packed with a ton of functionality for its hefty price tag. The one thing it doesn’t offer is stylish originality. For the tech-minded watch horse searching for a different look to wrap around his wrist, the Misfit Vapor Smartwatch offers plenty of capability in a sleek, understated shell.
Priced at $200, the Bluetooth-capable Misfit Vapor effectively allows the wearer to track his physical activity or count steps, control music on a smartphone or tablet, use GPS with various apps, monitor heart rate and receive text or voicemail notifications. Though the Misfit Vapor is set up through an Android mobile OS and operatives with Google Voice Activation, it’ll get along just as well with an iPhone (even if that makes an Apple Watch jealous).
The round, compact case seems understated amongst the smartwatch crowd, but the tough little temporal gadget is impact resistant and swim-proof.
