TicWatch Pro available now: why you’ll want one

The 'dual-screen' Ticwatch Pro costs $250

Mobvoi is no stranger to unique hardware on a smartwatch, with quirky designs on Wear OS and handy features on its previous Ticwear devices. The watch is from Mobvoi, a Chinese company focusing on AI that also makes budget smartwatches and smart speakers like the TicHome Mini.

The Ticwatch Pro's biggest feature is the display.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the TicWatch Pro offers a 1.39-inch round OLED display with a resolution of 400×400, plus the FSTN display above that. The smartwatch is available now on Amazon and Mobvoi's website for $249.99. The OLED display shows Wear OS in all its glory, while the FTSN display keeps it simple and shows your heart rate, step count, and the time. The secondary display is obviously a low power display which will be always on. The FSTN LCD display is highly visible in direct sunlight, but transparent when off, allowing the OLED to function without compromise. With the new TicWatch Pro that's launching today, you can get two, even three, days of use.

In delirious scenes in Paris, fans let off fire crackers and released smoke flares. But the bottom line is they will now be facing France in the final: not England.

With two screens and seriously long battery life the Ticwatch Pro is no ordinary smartwatch, yet it has most of the usual features you'd expect on top of that, including a touchscreen and Wear OS software. With this mode active, users can get about 2 days of battery life on a charge. However, where the Ticwatch Pro could really win out is in its "Essential Mode", which completely shuts down Wear OS, leaving you with access to only the basic FSTN LCD display. If you're not a member yet, you can sign up here for a 30-day free trial. The watch can still track steps and your heart rate in this mode. It does all of this with a 415mAh battery packed inside of the watch. "Ultimately, TicWatch Pro is our flagship smartwatch created to further our mission of bringing anyone and everyone access to affordable, high-quality smart devices". The 45mm watch is built from a combination of stainless steel and "hard nylon" with a silicone strap that has a leather top layer for a premium look. There's also the standard health and fitness sensors: accelerometer, gyro, ambient light sensor, low latency off-body sensor, and a magnetic sensor.

Many will be happy to know as well that the Ticwatch Pro has NFC on board, meaning you can use it with Google Pay for mobile payments. We assume the watch goes with the aging Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset and less than 1GB of RAM, but Mobvoi did not say.

The TicWatch Pro is available now from Amazon UK for just £219.99, and comes in either black or silver colours.
