Nixon debuting sports smartwatch Mission
Watch and accessories lifestyle brand Nixon is bringing The Mission to annual expo Baselworld, taking place this week in Switzerland, a timepiece it says is the world’s first ultra-rugged action sports smartwatch.
Water-resistant to 100 meters (330ft), The Mission comes with custom apps that display live conditions and activity-tracking data, thanks to partnerships with Surfline, Snocountry and Trace.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-chip powers Google’s Android Wear smartwatch platform.
The case is made from polycarbonate and stainless steel; The Mission’s wristband is dual-layer silicone, with Corning Gorilla Glass over the watchface.
Customization options are to be made available via the company’s website and the watch is to go on sale later in 2016.
