The watch is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform, paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. What makes it “smart” apart from its digital display and the Wear OS it runs are the addition of heart rate sensor for heart rate monitoring, and the inclusion of an inbuilt GPS for indoor and outdoor tracking and positioning. But that’s not all. The Wear OS also brings Google Assistant to the wrist.
The Vapor X is water resistant up to 30 meters and can be used when bathing or light swimming. It can be paired with smartphones running Android 4.4+ or iOS 10+ via Bluetooth or WiFi. There is also NFC onboard with supports for Google Pay. When paired, users can view text notifications and be aware of incoming calls on their wrists.
