The custom-molded case is made from tough polycarbonate and stainless steel with a full round AMOLED display, all protected by the watch’s 316L grade stainless steel bezel that performs as a roll cage protecting the tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass crystal. A custom dual-layer, silicone band offers a balance between everyday comfort and off-road toughness. One of the first watches announced to be based on the Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC, enabling sleek designs, long battery life, smart sensing, and always-connected experiences. The Mission will benefit from the chipset’s long battery life, smart sensing and always-connected experiences.
