Misfit’s Vapor will ship this summer with Android Wear 2.0, priced at $199

When it was announced at CES 2017 in January, Misfit’s Vapor didn’t have an operating system that we were familiar with. The Fossil-owned subsidiary planned on shipping a smartwatch running in-house software. Doing so would allow Misfit to create a device tailored for its own needs and cater to specific consumers. Well, those plans are gone. Misfit is moving forward with a platform that already exists, is developed by a company for the masses to use, and just experienced an overhaul.

The Vapor from Misfit will be powered by Android Wear 2.0 when it arrives later this year.
