TicWatch amazed us back in 2017 thanks to two watches that have revolutionized the Android Wear world of smartwatches a bit stagnant. This time it wants to repeat with the TicWatch Pro (Check on Amazon.com).
In addition to the watch, which comes with a strap with the inner side made of plastic and the outer side made of leather, you will also find the magnetic charging base and no power adapter.
The TicWatch Pro is similar to the previous TicWatch S albeit slightly bigger. It is made of metal and is available with a silver or black crown. On the right side, we find two physical buttons. On the backside, we find the heartbeat sensor which is quite accurate. The strap is interchangeable. The watch is also water and dust resistant according to the IP68 standard.
This watch sports a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory for apps and music. We also have GPS and NFC. There is also a speaker and a microphone so that you can use Google Assistant with voice commands, as well as answering phone calls or listening to Google Assistant’s answers.
The Ticwatch Pro is equipped with a circular AMOLED display with a high resolution (400×400 pixels) and automatic brightness. What more can you ask? A secondary display is the answer. This smartwatch has a secondary transparent FSTN display above the AMOLED one. This one activates whenever the main display goes to standby and shows you the time, date and some fitness information. This saves a lot of battery while practically having an always-on mode.
The Mobvoi smartphone app is well designed and shows all your fitness data clearly enough. It may be too much for less experienced users and if you don’t like it, you can synchronize your data with other platforms thanks to the various options offered by Wear OS.
This watch will last you two full days with the heart rate sensor always on, and can last up to 3 by deactivating this function, but not much more.
The Ticwatch Pro has a cost of (Check on Amazon.com). This is the best bang for your buck you can currently find on the market!
The TicWatch Pro is undoubtedly the most balanced Wear OS smartwatch, it has complete hardware and the most attractive price on the market. The second display is fantastic, especially since it increases the autonomy to two full days.
