Android users have a wide variety of smartwatches to choose from. But if you’re looking for a wearable with all of the bells and whistles and best in class battery life, look no further than the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro.
Today’s smartwatches are much more than just notification devices. With full access to the Google Play Store, the TicWatch Pro is a modern-looking timepiece that can run an almost limitless-number of apps and watch faces.
But even without the downloadable apps, the TicWatch Pro comes running the latest version of Wear OS. Google’s wearable operating system allows the watch to check the weather, make calls through a connected phone, set an alarm, control smart homes, and more.
The TicWatch Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage.
Additionally, the smartwatch includes two hardware buttons that can be used to trigger the Google Assistant and other apps, NFC for Google Pay, a heart rate sensor, and a built-in GPS. Those last two features can be used in conjunction with Google Fit to help track workouts and other physical activities.
But what makes the TicWatch Pro stand out is its two displays. Unlike most smartwatches, the wearable includes an LCD display that sits on top of the primary AMOLED screen.
Users can switch between three modes to get the most out of the screens: Smart mode, Essential mode, and Hybrid mode. With Smart mode, the TicWatch Pro uses an AMOLED display and can last for roughly two whole days on its 415mAh battery.
The watch’s Essential mode uses the LCD display to show the basics. It’s great for showing fitness data, increases the sunlight readability, and gets users 30 days of battery life. Hybrid mode combines these two, utilizing the FSTN display while the watch is in an idle state.
The TicWatch Pro usually retails for $249.99, but Android Authority readers can save 20 percent when they use promo code AAPRO20. Click on the button below to take advantage of this limited-time deal.
