When the TicWatch Pro first launched, it quickly became one of the best Wear OS smartwatches on the market. Riding off on that success, Mobvoi is back with its new and improved successor, the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE.
The most noteworthy addition is evident by its name. The TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE now offers cellular support exclusively to the Verizon network. You’re able to initiate and receive calls, send and accept text messages, and access your favorite messaging apps on this smartwatch.
So how does 4G benefit the average user? For one thing, it means you don’t always have to be tethered to your phone. Whether you’re going for a quick run or lounging in the waters on a floatie, you’ll still receive all your notifications at all times. Moreover, by leveraging the 4G connectivity, you can activate its SOS alert feature with one tap if you’re ever in a bind. This immediately dials 911 and broadcasts your location to preset contacts.
Besides its wireless upgrade, the RAM department also received a nice bump up from 512MB to 1GB. By doubling the memory, performance should feel smoother than ever.
Unlike traditional mechanical timepieces, you’re not bound to one style. The Google Play Store allows you to pick and choose any number of watch faces to suit your liking. From digital or classic clocks, all the way to gaming displays like Fallout’s Pip-Boy or Pac Man.
Naturally, the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE still retains its most stand out feature, the long battery life. Just like its predecessor, the dual-layered display allows you to toggle between Smart Mode and Essential Mode. Switching to the latter should, according to Mobvoi, extend your usage time up to 30 days on a single charge.
On the fitness and health side of things, Mobvoi has updated both its TicMotion and TicPulse app. The AI-powered TicMotion intelligently detects and tracks a wide array of workouts down to a granular level. TicPulse, on the other hand, now passively monitors your heart and keeps the data for up to seven days, even while on Essential Mode.
The TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE typically retails at $299. However, as part of the new launch promotion with Android Authority, our readers can enjoy $20 off on the original price. Simply use this promo code AAPRO4G at the checkout page to get that sweet savings.
