In this smartwatch, two displays should bring a longer battery life. What sounds strange, is actually quite simple. This is the TicWatch Pro from Mobvoi. TicWatch Pro smartwatch with Wear OS and two displays: one main OLED for full use and one secondary transparent FSTN LCD to save Battery. It will be available in the DD4 Store at $282.62.
It starts from the crown, always circular but now equipped with two physical side buttons and no more than one. The processing of the case has turned completely towards the adoption of aluminum, Now able to better express the aesthetic quality of the TicWatch, especially when combined with a beautiful leather strap. Beyond the pure appearance, we still know a little ‘little of the new TicWatch Pro. The element at the moment most interesting is certainly the presence of a second transparent display positioned directly above the main OLED panel.
Movboi’s new TicWatch Pro takes a different approach: it has a main OLED display that turns off when it is not used to save energy and another superimposed transparent secondary display, of the same type “low power” FSTN LCD used in old digital watches, showing the time and other basic information when the main screen is turned off. For example, we will be able to view the results of our training, the remainder of the battery, the heart rate and many other data on the latter display without having to switch on the bigger screen. If you deactivate the ” Essential ” mode, the transparent screen will switch off.
The Ticwatch Pro does not have a cellular modem but makes contact with a connected smartphone via Bluetooth.

For data on the clock, 4 GB of flash memory is available and The TicWatch Pro is dust and waterproof thanks to the IP68 protection class and can withstand water depths of up to 1.5 meters for over 30 minutes.

NFC technology also allows TicWatch Pro to use Google Pay ™ for contactless payments. In addition to Google’s health and fitness apps, Mobvoi’s branded apps are also preinstalled on the device.
