Unreleased Misfit Vapor Android Wear smartwatch pops up on Amazon, and at a discount too

The Misfit Vapor is a smartwatch with an interesting background. It was first announced at CES with its own proprietary OS, but the company later decided to delay it and swap that out for Android Wear. Now, after months of missed goals and dozens of “vaporware” jokes, the company seems to finally be putting the watch on sale, and Amazon may have jumped the gun a little bit.

Misfit’s Vapor Wear watch delayed to October, Diesel’s first Android Wear watch available today

2017 has not been kind to Android Wear, and that’s thanks in big part to the disappointing¬†release of Android Wear 2.0. What originally gave a lot of promise for the future of the platform turned out to be a flop, but it did stir up the hardware market. Since the update’s release, we’ve seen lots of new Android Wear partners. Today, we’re getting word on when two upcoming watches will be hitting the market.

Earlier this year at CES we first met the Misfit Vapor, the first actual smartwatch from Misfit. At the time, I was pretty interested in the watch, but was disappointed to learn that it would be running atop a completely proprietary OS. Now, it seems Misfit has changed its mind, revealing that the Vapor will instead run atop Android Wear 2.0 upon its debut.
