Mission start — Nixon’s first Android Wear ships October 10

By Jules Wang September 14, 2016, 2:35 pm

It’s a chunky smartwatch with understated looks that’s built for action. And we’re finally seeing the ship date and price tag on it.

Let’s re-introduce you to Nixon’s first Android Wear smartwatch, the Mission. It’s one of the first to come with Qualcomm’s wearable-dedicated Snapdragon 2100 chipset along with 10 ATM (100m) water resistance. The 400 x 400 circular AMOLED screen can be used with wet fingers. There’s GPS, a microphone, thermometer, altimeter, barometer, an e-compass, gyrometer, accelerometer and a humidex sensor on this beast.

While you may shirk at the omission of a heart rate sensor or NFC, we remind you that Nixon’s grit has been made with wristwatches that action freaks wear, not necessarily health freaks. You pull a 1440°, you probably won’t care about your BPM — though Android Wear comes with Google Fit standard, so, there you go.

So, you’re wondering about the “when” and “how much” of this rather hefty 48mm Mission watch, correct? Well, in its standard orange, gray and black trims, it’s $400. But you can customize the finishes of the case, its stainless steel bezel and the 23mm proprietary band for an extra $50. Included in that price, you can even engrave a couple lines of text if you wanted to.

Pre-orders are up now for shipment on October 10.
