Root misfit vapour ?????

Hey guys - I have searched around and found nothing obvious, so, does anyone know if root is possible and if so how?

I know this is a two-year late reply, but maybe someone else is searching for the same thing.
Yes, rooting is possible in theory. However, there is no finished solution.
The Misfit Vapor is codenamed mullet and the Linux kernel sources are located here: https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/msm/+/refs/heads/android-msm-mullet-3.18-oreo-wear-dr
The bootloader can be unlocked like this (after enabling USB debugging in developer options):
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock

EDL mode is available and can be triggered using an EDL cable. I recommend building one with USB A female to USB A male so it acts as an adapter between the normal charge cradle and the pc. (There is no public firehose programmer)

There are no public firmware images and the OTA images are incremental and do not contain a full boot.img (that's probably one of the major issues going forward)
