  • The 'dual-screen' Ticwatch Pro costs $250

The first is "Smart Mode" which uses a combination of the two displays to maximize battery life without compromising the experience.

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.

Furthermore, the TicWatch Pro sports an Essential Mode which runs on only the low-power FTSN LCD display.

TicWatch Pro comes with several features that set it apart from its predecessors.

Apple releases new, faster MacBook Pro laptops
As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7. Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C, support for up to two 5K displays or up to four external GPUs, and a sleek aluminum unibody design.


If you are a fan of products that look unassuming, yet works like little else out there, Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro smartwatch is now available from Amazon for $250. You can use several health and fitness apps available and even change the watch face. It enables lower power consumption as the tech allows the watch owner to switch between FSTN LCD display and an OLED display.

The TicWatch Pro's screen, housed in a large 45mm case, includes an OLED display, as well as a more basic Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic (FSTN) LCD display.

Undoubtedly, the TicWatch Pro's most impressive feature is the display technology. The bezel and rear cover are stainless steel, with a hard nylon (polyamide) reinforced with glass fiber case. Those come in black, black with a silver buckle, orange, brown and black with an orange inside. As you'd expect, this displays your typical Wear OS software with Mobvoi's collection of watchfaces on board as well. It's also IP68 certified, which means it can be submerged up to 1.5 meters deep in water for up to 30 minutes - so it can survive the rain, but you shouldn't take it swimming. And the health and fitness features offered include heart rate and sleep monitoring, a calories burned counter, Global Positioning System and more. The Google Assistant allows you to do other tasks and control other smart devices from the watch. On a full charge, Essential mode can last up to thirty days, according to the company.

Apparently additional features will be added to Essential Mode over time, but for things like notifications and contactless payments you'll have to switch Wear OS back on. An LTE version of the watch is expected down the road. Fortunately, it is also a traditional Wear OS by Google smartwatch, so you're not exactly locked into some proprietary and isolated island (*cough* Tizen).
