Vapor Smartwatch to Receive Android Wear 2.0
We have great news for Vapor smartwatch owners, the gadget is set to receive Android Wear 2.0 when it comes out. The news has been confirmed by Misfit itself so it couldn’t be more official than this. In addition, Android Wear 2.0 is expected to start rolling out towards the third quarter of 2017. The Vapor watch is still new on the market because it was recently unveiled during CES, and receiving Android Wear 2.0 is going to boost its popularity.
Vapor Smartwatch Will Run on Android Wear 2.0
The wearable gadget managed to steal the spotlight from other devices during CES and that’s because its equipped with cool features and it can be acquired for the rather cheap price of $199. Regarding its features, Vapor ships with a heart rate sensor, touch-sensitive ring and standalone GPS.
Preston Moxcey who is the general manager of Misfit went into an interview and stated that Android Wear 2.0 will make Vulcan so much more customisable. The new operating system will also allow users to install more third party services and apps. Worth mentioning is that Vulcan was supposedly going to run on its own platform, but this has changed seeing how well Google has designed Android Wear.
Vapor Smartwach will Receive Exclusive Features
Another interesting statement made by the general manager is that Vulcan will also receive some exclusive features. All major tech companies that use Google’s operating system tend to try and make it more personal by adding their own touch such as user interfaces. Well, Preston Moxcey claimed that Vulcan will receive some unique features that make use of its custom watch face and micro apps.
Even though Misfit is changing the platform, Vulcan will stay the same when it comes to hardware. The wearable gadget is still being manufactured with the same 1.39 inch circular AMOLED panel, heart rate sensor and standalone GPS. Even better, the gadgets’ microphone will be optimized so that it’s embedded in Android Wear 2.0.
However, even though Android Wear 2.0 is packed with features, there’s one downside to it. The operating system is infamous for charging too much battery life. Well, Misfit claimed that this won’t be a problem on Vapor since the watch’s battery has been carefully optimized.
