NEWS – Supported by Verizon, Mobvio’s newly updated TicWatch Pro now comes in a 4G LTE version that is jam-packed with all the smartphone features you want and need, like GPS, NFC for Google payments from your wrist, built-in heart rate monitor, and activity tracking. It’s also IP68+ rated so you can wear it while swimming, and it has 30 days of battery life. No, you didn’t read that wrong, I said 30 days of battery life per charge!
This new 4G version of the TicWatch Pro uses the same dual layered-screen technology as the TicWatch Pro that I reviewed last year. The watch has two displays. When the battery gets low, it automatically switches from Smart Mode which uses the AMOLED display to Essential Mode which uses the mono LCD. If you have a mixed use of both Smart Mode and Essential Mode, the watch battery will last up to 5 days per charge, but using the watch only in Essential Mode will give you 30 days of use.
The TicWatch Pro is powered by Wear OS by Google and also features Number Sharing and Cloud Synchronization to keep you connected to important messages from your smartphone, without actually tethering your smartphone. This new Wear OS standalone smartwatch can actually replace your smartphone because you can make calls right from your wrist using this watch.
