PSA: The Nixon Mission Android Wear watch is now available to order

Nixon Mission Smart Watch
Smart watch fans today have another option on the table with the sports focused Nixon Mission now available to order in Australia and around the world.

While the Nixon is supposed to be available with many different band, bezel colour and material combinations but it seems that for our launch options are limited. The watch is available in only two colour options: Orange/Gray/Black or All Black for $599.99 with free shipping via Australia Post included.

The Nixon has quite a high end spec list attached, with a specially designed for smartwatches Snapdragon 2100 processor and 1.39″ 400×400 resolution AMOLED display. The watch has the usual 512MB RAM and 4GB of storage, but as a sports focused watch it can be taken to an impressive 10-ATM (10 atmosphere) depth for the divers out there.

Nixon has included their own app for the watch, which as expected are sports focused offering real-time surf and snow conditions. Other than that it features all the great Android Wear features you find on other watches with the Nixon Mission Trace app on your phone track your surf/snow sessions.

The watch is available to order from today, if you’re interested head over and check it out. Chris has been using one for a while now and should have a full review out shortly.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Me too. It always surprised me, though, that this activity watch has no GPS.

Oh right! My bad. In that case, I’m really looking forward to the review as well. Currently Gear S3 is my most likely but will see how the Mission compares.

I’ve tried ordering, entered all my details including credit card and address only to be advised that I need to call them with a reference number as they require further information (I can’t think what?).
I have tried calling 7 times now. Just keep getting an answering machine. Ho hum.
