As the name implies, Android Wear is simply a variation of Android specifically tailored to smartwatches. This year's Wear 2.0 update ran on top of Android 7.0 Nougat, and while some components can be updated through the Play Store, the underlying system can only be updated through normal OTAs.

[Update: Not shipping until December] Misfit's unreleased Vapor Android Wear smartwatch appears on Amazon for only $151 ($48 off)

According to a new Amazon listing, it looks like Misfit's Vapor Android Wear smartwatch might actually exist soon. Even better, you can buy one now over at Amazon in both Black and Gold/Pink for just a bit over $151. It's "temporarily out of stock," but you can place an order.

The Vapor is supposed to cost $200 when it launches later this October, so we aren't sure if this is a mistake with the listing or an actual reduction in price. Either way, I'd recommend acting very fast if you're interested.

Following months of delays, Misfit Vapor smartwatch will be available October 31

It's been a long road for Misfit's Vapor smartwatch. After being announced at CES in January, it was revealed that it would run Android Wear 2.0 in March, which instantly made it one of the most attractive sub-$200 watches on the platform, then we discovered that the GPS would only be "connected GPS". Meanwhile the shipping date was pushed from late summer to October and that's where we're at now. Misfit just announced that the Vapor will be available on October 31st, honoring its own deadline by a hair.

In case you don't know the specs, the Vapor is a 44mm watch with a 1.39" AMOLED display plus ambient light sensor.

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition on AT&T becomes last device to receive Android Wear 2.0

The rollout of Android Wear 2.0 has been a constant source of frustration for watch owners, as many models have taken months to receive the update. The Moto 360 Sport was updated last month, but there was another watch still waiting - the AT&T Urbane 2nd Edition.
