Ticwatch E Review

Intro

Mobvoi, a Chinese startup, released their next generation of Ticwatch series – Ticwatch S&E. It is available in two variants – Sports (Ticwatch S) and Express (Ticwatch E). I backed the Kickstarter project on 12th July 2017 (backer #3606) for a pair of Ticwatch E at US$245. It was slated for delivery in October 2017 but it was only delivered to me on 25th November 2017 after some delay.

I chose the Ticwatch E as I felt that it is more appropriate for office wear and it’s watch straps can be changed. Whereas the Ticwatch S’s watch straps are fixed.

The Ticwatch E is my third smart watch. The first being the Pebble watch (first generation) and followed by the Moto 360. I always found the Apple watch to be sleek but, unfortunately, I cannot use it due to my choice of phone (OnePlus 3). The next best choice? Stick to Android Wear.

 

Difference between the Ticwatch S and Ticwatch E

Other than the differences in size of the watch and weight, the Ticwatch S has got the GPS antenna integrated into the watchband that (supposedly) allows it better location accuracy. The Ticwatch S also comes with a fixed outer bezel that cannot be used for navigating Android Wear.
