Nixon Mission takes on Casio G-Shock range

The Casio G-Shock range are watches that you want when you know you will be wearing them in extreme environments. There are not too many alternatives out there, although that is until now. The Nixon Mission is ready and waiting to take on the G-Shock range, and looking at the spec sheet and images, this could be a decent alternative.

Nixon describes their Mission as, “THE WORLD’S FIRST ACTION SPORTS SMARTWATCH,” and so has more to offer than the G-Shock watches. Bringing this kind of ruggedness to smartwatches could become the next big thing, especially for surfers and snowboarders.

This watch comes with a selection of pre-loaded apps so that you can get the latest surf and snow shred alerts, along with sea and mountain conditions.

For people that surf, the design and functionality has been inspired by other standard watches from the Nixon range, and you will benefit from a 10ATM water rating, along with real-time surf conditions powered by Surfline.

As for those of you that like to ski or snowboard, then you will be pleased to know that the Mission is able to handle the harsh elements of the cold outdoors. The trace app lets you track your sessions on the hill, and even deliver snow reports direct to your wrist.

The main Nixon Mission specs are the latest Android OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, more than 20 band options, and 15 bezel choices.

You can register your interest here once they become available to purchase, which we presume will cost around $400.
