The Mission

Posted by manualmagazine on Thursday September 29 2016

Appropriately titled “The Mission”, this new Nixon timepiece is the world’s first ultra- rugged, action sports smartwatch. Safe enough to join you in the shower or on your 100-metre deep-water dives, the watch is built on the latest technology from Google’s Android Wear department. Available worldwide this October. Full specs below.


In addition to the full capabilities of the Android Wear platform, the smartwatch introduces two custom Nixon applications: the namesake Mission app and the Mission Trace app. The Mission app puts your world on your wrist with live ocean and mountain conditions information available at a glance. The app’s Shred Alerts, powered by Surfline and Snocountry, allow consumers to create notifications for their personalised perfect conditions at favorite surf and snow locations. The Mission Trace app is a custom activity-tracking platform developed in partnership with Trace, the leader in action sports activity tracking. Designed to pair seamlessly with the Trace activity tracking technology, the Mission allows consumers to track sessions at a pro-level and easily view and share stats during activity.
