Mobvoi It is being one of the great protagonists in the smart watch market. In the middle of last January, the manufacturer showed us the TicWatch GTH, a very cheap device that sought to stand up to the Amazfit family of watches. And now it is the turn of the TicWatch Pro Sthe manufacturer’s new flagship, although with a series of chiaroscuros that are worth noting.

More than anything, and as you will see later, because this TicWatch Pro S disappoints due to some technical details that are surprising in a 2021 smartwatch. But first, let’s see what this new wearable is like.

Design of the TicWatch Pro S

On an aesthetic level, we find a smart watch that offers a sporty aspect, which boasts of IP68 and military 810G certification to guarantee great resistance to water, shocks, falls and much more.

The firm has opted for a more traditional design, so the screen that mounts this TicWatch Pro S is made up of a circular panel with Super AMOLED technology to provide excellent image quality.

Eye, what the TicWatch Pro S has two screenssince it has a second FSTN panel to save battery, so the autonomy of this smartwatch will be one of its great exponents.

OS Wear OS.

In the hardware section, the TicWatch Pro S doubles the memory of its predecessor by reaching 8 GB of internal storage where you can download all kinds of applications or songs to take advantage of the benefits offered by Google’s Wear OS.

But where it surprises, and for worse, is in the chosen processor. Mainly because the firm has decided to bet on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 supported on 1 GB of RAM. We are talking about a SoC that was presented in February 2016, so its use is surprising when there are more recent models.

The truth is that, with the power required by the applications available in Wear OSIn addition to the operating system itself, this processor will be more than enough to offer good performance and an experience that lives up to expectations. But the commitment to an “obsolete” processor does not cease to amaze. Surely it is to reduce costs, but it is a detail that we do not want to miss.

At the level of connectivity, it should be noted that it has NFC chip to make mobile payments, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and WiFi connectivity. We cannot forget its 415 mAh battery that guarantees autonomy of up to 30 days.

Finally, and how could it be otherwise in a sports-oriented smartwatch, say that the TicWatch Pro S has all kinds of sensors capable of monitoring every last step you take, including a sensor SpO2 to control oxygen levels in the blood.

To this must be added the TicExercise 3.0, TicSleep 2.0, TicBreath and TicHearing applications. Four tools that will help you train better, control how you sleep at night, breathing techniques and ensure that you are in a safe environment away from noise that can disturb you.

Availability and price of the TicWatch Pro S

Available in two different colors, the TicWatch Pro S is now available in our country at a price of 259.99 euros. Is your purchase worth it? The truth is that the fact that it bets on a 2016 processor means that it does not start off on the right foot. But its hardware in general will be more than enough to offer a good user experience, and its double screen to increase autonomy is a detail to take into account.
