I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

The Vapor 2 will be available in 8 colors at launch.


Misfit's Vapor Wear OS smartwatch adds some new tricks to its repertoire, including NFC for payments, a built-in GPS and and updated heart-rate sensor, along with new sizes of 41mm and 46mm. 

Misfit didn't specify availability, but it will cost $250 (£215, AU$375) when it ships.

The standalone GPS means there's no longer need to connect to a phone to track steps or calories. It retains the features of the previous model, including swimproofing and water resistance up to 164 ft/50m, 4GB of storage and a built-in music player.
