Putting flimsy smartwatches to shame with its 316L stainless steel bezel and Gorilla Glass touchscreen, the Nixon Mission Watch is purposely built for surfers, snowboarders, and skiers subjecting their smartwatch to the rigors of overhead swells, waist-deep powder, and nasty spills.

It runs off Google's Android Wear 1. 5, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip providing the most advanced smartwatch performance to date. Enhancing functionality for daily use, it's compatible with popular Google apps, such as Google Fit, Google Play Music, and Google Maps. Other cool features include the ability to use it as a remote shutter for your phone, check weather conditions, and receive flight notifications. One of the watch's biggest selling points are swappable bezels and watch bands. These add-ons are available separately through Nixon, creating a truly customizable piece to your stylistic tastes and daily wardrobe.

Other notable features include the ability to swap out digital watch faces with traditional Nixon favorites, ranging from the upscale Player Watch to the high-tech Unit face. Included with the Mission is a magnetic charging dock wi...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
