Surfers take note: The Mission from Nixon is an Android Wear smartwatch good for a 10-ATM water resistance rating, meaning it'll keep ticking through depths of up to 100 meters, the highest rating for any smartwatch. The rugged construction features a round-faced design made from polycarbonate and stainless steel, with a multi-color AMOLED display behind Gorilla Glass. Under the hood, the watch is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon Wear 2100. Pre-loaded apps should appeal to surfers and snow sport enthusiasts alike, displaying up-to-date information on conditions around the world. The Mission will make its official debut at Baselworld, followed by a retail launch in the fall.
