Nixon's Mission is a rugged Android Wear watch built for action

Watchmaker Nixon has announced its first Android Wear-based product, the Misssion. The rugged smartwatch is water resistant up to 100 meters or 10 ATM, and is built to withstand the elements. The Mission was built with sports like surfing, snowboarding, and skiing in mind.

The watch comes with a suite of software powered by Surfline and Snocountry, which allow the Mission to receive real-time condition information for surfing, skiing, and snowboarding. This information can be viewed at a quick glance at the Mission's face. Nixon has also partnered with Trace, a company that specializes in tracking activity in these kinds of sports.

In addition to its water resistance, the Mission is shock resistant, and features a Corning Gorilla Glass display. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-chip. The Mission will be available later this year in multiple colors, and Nixon will offer more than 20 band options. The watch is expected to cost around $400.
