Worth the wait? Misfit delays first smartwatch until October

Misfit’s first foray into a full-fledged smartwatch, the Misfit Vapor, seems to have hit a slight snag.

Originally planned for a release before the end of September, the fitness tracker maker announced that its Android Wear 2.0-powered wearable will instead be coming out in October, according to The Verge.

This makes for a negligible delay of about a month or so, with Misfit reportedly not changing anything else about the Vapor besides its release date.

Revealed during CES 2017, the Misfit Vapor features a 1.39-inch round AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, 4GB of storage, 400mAh battery and Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity.

In addition to specs, the Vapor is competitive with other Android Wear devices on the market in terms of price, releasing at $199 (about £160, AU$270).

While we see Misfit’s slight delay as nothing to panic over, we can only wonder if smartwatch fans excited for the rounded wearable will be as patient, considering the sheer number of viable Android Wear watches out there.
