The 'dual-screen' Ticwatch Pro costs $250

0			FacebookTwitterGooglePinterestLinkedInReddit

You can now pick up Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro smartwatch from Amazon. That's more than both the Ticwatch S and Ticwatch E cost, but it's not as much as other high-end Wear OS watches like the LG Watch Sport.

Moving on from the display, though, the Ticwatch Pro doesn't skimp when it comes to the hardware. And that's because there's two of them. It enables lower power consumption as the tech allows the watch owner to switch between FSTN LCD display and an OLED display. That means, essentially, there are two screens; one on top of the other. In most cases that will be the OLED one, and you'll get a standard Wear OS experience. The OLED display shows Wear OS in all its glory, while the FTSN display keeps it simple and shows your heart rate, step count, and the time. At its core, there's a standard 1.39-inch 400×400 OLED display.

The case is made from glass fiber infused nylon, similar to what we've seen from other sports-focussed smartwatches, but has a stainless steel bezel and rear cover for added durability. The skin-friendly silicon strap is covered with a premium grade Italian leather. The colors offered are Black and Silver. Together, the whole thing is IP68 water and dust resistant, which means depths of up to 1.5m for as long as thirty minutes are safe, though the company doesn't recommend swimming with the smartwatch on. And the health and fitness features offered include heart rate and sleep monitoring, a calories burned counter, Global Positioning System and more.

Health and Fitness - Sensors include a heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyro, magnetic sensor, ambient light sensor and low latency off-body sensor.

Starbucks Sippy Cups Will Replace Plastic Straws by 2020
Starbucks said the new strawless lids will first be implemented in Seattle and Vancouver in the third quarter of this year. But, let's say-for the sake of argument-that as many as 500 million plastic straws are used in the USA every day.

Apparently, the U.S. might also get a model with LTE included, which could allow you to use the watch in full while leaving your phone at home, but this isn't confirmed and it's not clear whether anywhere else will get a version with LTE. If you're using the wearable to access Google Assistant, install Google Play Store apps, change watch faces, control your music, receive notifications and track your health and fitness, the OLED display will be visible using Smart Mode.

While in Smart Mode, the TicWatch Pro features up to two-day battery life.

Considering we've now got an official release about the launch in the U.S., we don't expect the LTE version of the watch will be coming anytime soon. if at all. But, the TicWatch Pro's insane multiscreen idea is an interesting spin on how to solve the mediocre battery life on smartwatches - or turn touch screens into always-readable panels on other gadgets or appliances that need to sip power. However, if you want to bump up that number to 30 days of battery life, you can run the TicWatch Pro in what's called "Essential Mode". On top of that, however, there's a second screen, more like that of a Casio G-Shock, which can show the essentials like time, steps, date, and other basics.

As for the rest of the story, the TicWatch Pro has all of the specs you could ask for in a Wear OS device at this time.
