Nixon's Mission smartwatch

Postby Darksider » November 17th 2016, 11:41am

If you have a smartwatch, chances are you’re fairly protective of it, preventing it from getting too wet, too beat up, or too knocked around. After all, a smartwatch is little more than a computer on your wrist that costs several hundred dollars. But the new Nixon Mission, a $400 Android Wear smartwatch that’s available for preorder starting today and will be shipping on October 10th, is designed to get wet and get knocked around and keep on going.

With its rugged design, the Mission is specifically built with surfers and snowboarders in mind — Nixon’s core demographic — and can provide alerts to surf and snow conditions and even track sessions. This isn’t the smartwatch you wear to the boardroom or out on a date — this is the watch you put on when you’re headed to the break to get pitted or getting on a helicopter to shred some gnar.

Dang! Yet another reason not to buy Nixon.

I love tech stuff but just cannot warm up to smartwatches in any way, shape or form.

That's awesome. If Casio doesn't pull their thumb out and start releasing smart G-Shocks I may pick one of these up once they're obsolete and dirt cheap in about 6 months.

I have yet to see a Nixon I would spend even $20 on. Maybe if I possessed a 12" wrist I might find them more appealing.

About 10 years ago, I picked this one up.

Hey, I was surfing then and thought the bamboo was cool, how could I resist?

No smart watches for me. To really use a smart watch, I think it has to become part of your all-day every day habit, to make it 2nd nature. That precludes me from wearing any of my other watches. No thanks. Carrying a phone all the time is okay with me. I don't need another similar device, or one that really only does smart things for me while I am already carrying my phone. My phone does it all better.

Yep, I used to really want that watch but got over it. Still have one Nixon, however.

Best looking Nixon I have seen. Very '70s, as Russ said.
