Nixon is set to release the world’s first action sports smartwatch “The Mission” this fall 2016 retailing for $400. Its built tough with a shockproof polycarbonate case and an underwater rating good to 330 feet despite having a microphone port according to pcworld.com.
If you’re looking for diagnostics from your ski session, The Mission can hook into Trace sensors, giving you access to realtime info like session time, calories burned, altitude, maximum speed and total distance.
Not sure how useful this would be on a cold, snowy day unless you wore it outside your jacket? Time will tell if these things take off or become another ski gimmick that ends up in the back of your closet.
