The Nixon Mission was announced back in March as an Android Wear watch for extreme sports enthusiasts. With a stainless steel and polycarbonate chassis, a waterproof rating up to 10ATM, shock-resistant body and raised bezel to protect the touchscreen, it's certainly built to look the part. It also works with the Mission app and the Trace app to track skiing, surfing, snowboarding, and provide weather conditions for these activities. It's certainly one of the most niche Android Wear watches released to date, but these options are nice for those who are passionate about this kind of sports.

The display is a 400x400 AMOLED one with an ambient light sensor although it's a full circle (whaaaaaat!). Under the hood, there's the new Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor and plenty of sensors: GPS, thermometer, altimeter, barometer, e-compass, gyrometer, accelerometer, and humidity sensors. No heart rate sensor though, or NFC, and apparently no speaker either. There's no word on the battery capacity or expected battery life.


The Mission is now available for pre-order on Nixon's website. For $400, you can get the black, grey, or orange variant. But if you pay $450, you can customize your watch, MotoMaker style. You get to pick the color of the case, choose a bezel finish and color, and mix it up with a big number of band options. You can also have some engraving on the back or pick a default watch face to show up on your watch out of the box.

The Mission will be available on October 10, so you should get it around then if you pre-order now.
