Mobvoi releases TicWatch Pro, launches Ticwatch S and E in Challenger Singapore

Following the success of the TicWatch S and E, Mobvoi has launched its TicWatch Pro Wear OS smartwatch. The new device is rather unique among Wear OS devices in that it has a low power FSTN (Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic, the stuff you find on conventional digital watches) LCD display on top of an OLED display (for interfacing with Wear OS). What’s interesting is that you have the ability to switch between the two in what Mobvoi calls the “Essential” and “Smart” modes, respectively.

Mobvoi claims that the watch will last up to 2 days in Smart mode, while Essential mode stretches this figure to 30 days.

In Essential mode, certain functionality is restricted. Users will see time, date, step counting, and heart rate monitoring. The health and fitness data syncs when TicWatch Pro is switched to Smart Mode. OTA updates over time will add more functions into Essential Mode (since the sensors can still be accessed in this mode) including distance traveled, calories burned, speed and cadence. In Smart Mode, users will have the complete Wear OS by Google experience through the OLED display.

Mobvoi will also be expanding its presence in Singapore through a strategic partnership with Challenger. The TicWatch S (Sport) & E (Express) will now be available in 25 Challenger stores across Singapore for SGD 299 and 239 respectively. TicWatch Pro will be available via Mobvoi official website for USD 249.99 (approx SGD 340).

I personally was a TicWatch E user, and it remains one of the cheapest and well-rounded Wear OS experiences to date. An interesting point to note is that the new Pro model has NFC and hence supports Google Pay, unlike the S&E. Also, the Pro uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC rather than the Mediatek MTK MT2601 processors found within the S&E. The Wear 2100 is more than 2 years old now, and I’m not too sure how it will perform compared to the MTK MT2601, but looking at the spec sheet of both processors they seem highly similar in terms of performace. It’ll be interesting to test this out during our full review, which should be available in the coming weeks.
