When one door closes, another opens. That's what we are talking about. Android Wear 2.0 is here and ready to rock-n-roll with the all new Misfit Vapor. It’s got the usual package: activity tracking (steps, distance, swim, runs, farts etc), built-in music, real-time location and an optical heart rate sensor. It sports an AMOLED screen with customisable watch face options to check on all your vital stats, one of them mainly being time. Apart from the looks, the Vapor runs on Android Wear 2.0. You know what that means. Your watch is now an individual. No more dependency on your phone. It runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and makes space for 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Take this for a swim 50m below sea level and you’ve earned yourself a trophy from Google Fit. Runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat) but 8.0 (Oreo) is right around the corner. “OK Google, what’s the price of the Misfit Vapor?”. “The price of the Misfit Vapor is ₹14,495 and available to buy from e-commerce sites (Flipkart and Amazon India) and Misfit India.”
