• TicWatch Pro Review: Two screens, one watch

    9 days ago - By Android Central

    A dual-screen smartwatch sounds like the most ridiculous thing ever... until you stop picturing the screens side by side, and instead stack them one atop the other. That's a trick that Mobvoi borrows from Casio for its new TicWatch Pro, and the result is a smartwatch with unparalleled outdoor readability. It also makes for the longest-lasting smartwatch you've ever seen - you've just got to turn off all the smart features to make it happen.
    All that's well and good, but with Samsung getting ready to cannonball into the WearOS waters , and the platform itself also approaching some sort of...

  • Mobvoi TicWatch Pro review: A second screen doesn't solve any of Wear OS's problems

    Mobvoi TicWatch Pro review: A second screen doesn't solve any of Wear OS's problems

    9 days ago - By PC World

    The Mobvoi TicWatch Pro wants to solve the one problem Wear OS doesn't really have: battery life. While some older LTE-enabled Wear OS watches might struggle to get through a day of normal use, most of them are plenty capable of handling a full day of step tracking, Lyft hailing, and message sending. The TicWatch Pro is no different in that regard. Use it as a smartwatch and you'll probably need to plug it in before hitting the sack. Rather, Mobvoi's battery innovation is the addition of a second, low-power display on top of the standard 1.4-inch OLED. Activate it, and it shuts down most...

    TicWatch Pro review: A best-of-both-worlds hybrid

    9 days ago - By Android Central

    Mobvoi isn't the first smartwatch to put out a hybrid smartwatch, but this one works out almost too well.
    Many have questioned the future - and the present - of smartwatches in the Android ecosystem. Wear OS as a category has felt dead for months now, and if there's any watch I'd trust to help give it a shot in the arm while we wait for the long-rumored/dreamed-of Pixel Watch, it's going to be the newest smartwatch in the TicWatch line.
    The TicWatch Pro is launching as an Amazon Prime exclusive ahead of Prime Day, and it's got a dual-layer screen that goes old-school in just the right way...

  • TicWatch Pro review: Best battery-life smartwatch outshines the big brands

    9 days ago - By Pocket-lint

    Wear OS, the former Google Android Wear wearable operating system, has gone through something of a shift over the past few years. As fewer traditional tech companies are building smartwatches, more designer watch brands are picking up the slack, which is where you're most likely to spot Google's presence. However, there are a couple of tech companies still building them, such as Mobvoi, which makes the affordable TicWatch line-up.

    TicWatch Pro Review: One smartwatch, two screens

    9 days ago - By SlashGear

    We may still argue about the usefulness of smartwatches, but few would disagree that a wearable with a flat battery is no use at all. The TicWatch Pro running Wear OS by Google wants to make sure that's not an accusation you can level at it, using a clever twin screen system of stacked panels, one for full functionality, the...
