The Best Thing About This Smartwatch Is the Strap

There’s no shortage of stylish Wear OS watches—it’s literally Fossil’s main reason for existing at this point. The company and its small army of designer brands make up the bulk of Android-friendly smartwatches out there. The problem is, they’re all functionally interchangeable.

Since Google bought Fitbit, people seem to have fallen into one of two categories: Those who don’t care at all about the privacy implications, and those very much do.

Misfit’s New Vapor X Smartwatch Looks Very Promising

The first Misfit Vapor was nearly vaporware. Its successor, the Vapor 2, tried to fix the original smartwatch’s issues but was ultimately hindered by an outdated processor.
