Nixon Mission Review
Users who wanted a smartwatch to use while surfing, climbing or performing some adventurous activity used to end empty handed. There was no a smartwatch that was capable of meeting these requirements. Now, there is one model. Enjoy the Nixon mission review and discover why this smartwatch is simply one of a kind.
iPhone and Android operating system compatibility
It wouldn’t be a very popular and useful smartwatch if it wasn’t compatible with most popular operating systems, found on almost all smartphones used today. As such, the Nixon Mission works perfectly with iOS and Android operating systems. This is just the first and the main element of the Nixon mission review.
The model we tested is also compatible with the Nixon Mission app which offers plenty of different possibilities and makes the entire smartwatch even more desirable unit.
Resistant to the elements
We were impressed with the resistance this smartwatch has to offer. It is immune to the dust, water, shocks and all possible elements. It can withstand water up to 10 ATM and it comes with Corning Gorilla glass which covers the display, so it is immune to the scratches as well.
Basically, it is worthy of the name mission smartwatch. Users are free to use it anywhere and in any situation they like and there must be no damages to the device! If we add a resistant bezel and tough, general construction, we can deduce that this is going to be more than just possible.
Real-time surf and snow notifications
If you are a surfer or you like skiing, this device is just the right choice. It is paired with services such as Snocountry and Surfline. Basically, you will get real-time notifications about specific areas of the world which are related to snow and surfing possibilities.
We must add that the notifications are accurate and they make the smartwatch in question more than just ideal for this purpose. After all, it has been designed and made for people with active lifestyles.
On ordinary smartwatches you can download an app that will simulate some of the features we will mention. On this model, they come as advanced systems that offer you the most accurate data in real-time and they can help you get the most out of a specific event or a situation.
The list of features of this kind includes an altimeter, barometer, GPS, thermometer, humidity reports, and e-compas. Thanks to them, you can adapt or plan your next adventurous trip to any destination in the world and make sure you come back home safe and sound.
The display of this smartwatch is a masterpiece in the lack of a better word. It offers 400×400 pixel resolution with 1.39 inches size. The display is based on modern AMOLED technology so the colors are vivid and the animations are even better. The display also comes with an ambient sensor, so it will adjust the brightness automatically.
This is a more sophisticated version of a display, we can see on today’s smartwatches. It is very thin, which makes using it even more appealing. Of course, it is paired with Corning Gorilla glass, so it is resistant and strong.
A must be mentioned advantage is the ability to use the display with wet hands. After all, this device is designed and made to be used in a harsh environment and by adventurous users, so this advantage is more than just appreciated. And yes, multi-finger touch is supported as well.
A few years ago, a smartphone with 512MB of RAM was a powerful device. Nowadays, we can see this amount of RAM in a smartwatch. This, particular model comes with the amount of RAM memory in question and it is even powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor.
The combination of these two specifications makes the smartwatch super-fast when operating and it supports all the latest apps and the tasks. It runs smoothly when under load and it offers impressive speeds in general.
Listening to the music without a phone
Yes, thanks to the Nixon Blaster Pro or ordinary Bluetooth headphones, you can listen to the music which is stored directly on your new smartwatch. There is no need to use a phone or to carry an MP3 player. The sound quality is at a high level, especially if you remember that this is a small device.
There is plenty of storage space for all your favorite songs and there won’t be any complications here. The connection is simple and most Bluetooth headphones are supported.
Google Fit support
Now we must add that the tested model is compatible with the Google Fit system. What it means is that you will get help when exercising and you will be able to improve your results with the help of a technology.
