What we like Class-leading water resistance to 10ATM (100m depth) with a complete high quality build elsewhere. Better sync options with iPhone and bespoke tracking apps for surf and snow sports including Surfline integration for wave forecasting. What we don't like Battery life, as usual for Android Wear watches, lets it down but was expected given the features available. No heart rate monitoring available. Screen isn't the easiest for viewing on-the-move. The bottom line The NIXON MISSION SS is a proper tough cookie. It's built to last and is smart enough to fulfil every surf and snow sports enthusiast's needs and then some. The latest Android Wear 2.0 software has better integration for iPhone users and the Surfline sync is fantastic. A great chunky sports watch that if you're happy to overlook battery life is a fantastic addition to your timepiece collection.
