Nixon Mission is the Android Wear smartwatch that takes sporting smart wrist wear to another level, a deep one. Nixon says this will be the first smartwatch capable of reaching underwater depths of 100 metres, or 10ATM, thanks to its water resistance.
The Nixon Mission comes with a pair of pre-loaded apps designed specifically for surfers and snowboarder or skiers. These apps offer live information on weather conditions around the world to help plan outings and movements using the smartwatch. Of course since it is an Android Wear operating system that will require a connection to a smartphone in order to update with live information.
The Nixon Mission features a round AMOLED display encased in Gorilla Glass. This is surrounded by a stainless steel bezel plus polycarbonate and stainless steel shell with silicone wristband. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. As you can see from the above gallery it's solidly built to withstand even the most rugged of sporty beatings.
Nixon will allow wearers to customise the choice of finish for bezel and band. The display can also mimic other Nixon watches like the 51-30, The Sentry, The Player, The Ranger and The Unit thanks to various watch faces.
The Nixon Mission will be on sale this autumn, expect pricing to be announced nearer that time.
