It’s the day of dual-everything at TTL HQ. After reporting about the odd case of fisheye lenses for the Canon EOS R5, we’ve heard of a new smartwatch sporting dual displays. The talk of the town is Mobvoi TicWatch Pro X.
If that name rings a bell, you may have seen our previous coverage of their products at IFA. Since then, the company has been cranking out smartwatches with the latest one being the TicWatch Pro X.
A Wear OS watch through and through, this one promises an outstanding battery life of up to 45 days. But to achieve the most battery life, you have to be careful which of the two displays you use most.
In case you didn’t know, the TicWatch series comes with a signature dual display design. In Pro X’ case, you have a 454 x 454 AMOLED screen that’s normally used to see stats, app usage and navigation. The simpler tasks can be easily supported by the color-backlit FSTN LCD. On this one, you can see basic info and of course, save battery at the same time.
The displays are layered one on top of the other in a 1.39-inch case. Underneath said case, you’ll find a Snapdragon 4100 chip with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
The smartwatch is IP68 water-resistant and comes with a suite of sensors, including an SpO2 and a heart rate one that actually offers arrhythmia warnings.
Activity-wise, users will find that the watch monitors more than 20 sports, has NFC connectivity as well as LTE support.
The only drawbacks to the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro X are the old Wear OS version (the latest one should drop next year) and the market it’s selling on, China. We have no idea, unfortunately, if Mobvoi plans to sell the smartwatch in other countries too.
In China, the smartwatch costs 2,399 yuan (~$371) and can be found at JD.com.
