More fashionable appearance
I remember when the Apple Watch was launched, the square dial was difficult for many people to accept, a design that ran counter to our old impression of a "watch" over the years. The Ticwatch Pro, on the other hand, still maintains the design of a circular dial, with a leather strap, which at first glance looks no different from an ordinary sports watch.
However, as soon as we started, we felt the delicacy of its workmanship and the solidity of its materials. Ticwatch Pro is forged with Austenite 316L fine steel, which is made of 113 processes, 45 processes and vacuum coating A grade process. The surface is of frosted material, anti-skid and anti-fingerprint.
The front of the fuselage is designed with a raised dial, which is common in sports watches, and looks rhythmic and stylish. There are two solid buttons on the right side of the fuselage, so it is convenient to press when the left hand is worn. The TicWatch Pro uses a 45mm dial, which is generally more atmospheric than the Apple Watch. Although there are many elements in the whole, there seems to be nothing wrong with the "baptism education" of sports watch design for us for a long time.
The front screen of the Ticwatch Pro is 1.4 inch, the resolution is 400X400 pixels, and the pixel density is 287PPI. Although 45mm's dial is big enough in a smartwatch, it's a nightmare to click frequently between inches on your wrist. However, fortunately with the physical keys and UI optimization, the operation is still relatively convenient.
The back of the Ticwatch Pro is still made of fine steel, with a heart rate sensor in the middle and a magnetic charging interface on the left, which is easier to use and carry than the wireless charging base, and can be filled after 1 hour of charging. Part of the strap is a "leather + silicone" mixed design, the outer layer is the Italian selection of imported cowhide, the back of the silicone material is more skin-friendly.
In addition, as a sports watch, the grooves on the strap are designed to facilitate ventilation and sweating. The watch itself supports the IP68 grade of waterproof and dustproof, and although it is not officially recommended to wear it for long periods of underwater activity, it is not unusual to wash your hands in the rain. Ticwatch Pro supports general-purpose 22mm straps on the market, and you can easily replace them by buying your favorite strap.
Dual screens bring more play
Since the birth of the smartwatch, battery life has become an unavoidable problem. Due to the size of the watch, the battery size is not destined to be the same as that of a mobile phone. In this case, how to continue the use of time, TicWatch Pro this time for us to show a new way of thinking. Ticwatch Pro has adopted a unique "dual screen" design this time, and in an ordinary scene, the 1.4-inch AMOLED screen shows us a wealth of content, along with the 415mAh battery, which officials say will last for about two days.
In news or persistent mode, another 1.4-inch monochrome LCD can display basic information such as date, time, and steps with more power savings. In persistent mode, you can still use NFC payments and bus cards, as well as measure your heart rate. Officials say it can last up to 30 days in durable mode, which ensures that the watch can hold on for at least a while without directly "flameout" if the watch is "dying".
In addition to the more conventional step counting, heart rate measurement and other functions, Ticwatch Pro as a more intelligent watch, but also built-in Alipay, map, voice assistant, NetEase cloud music and other multiple functions. Different from the ordinary smartwatch, TicWatch Pro is not very dependent on mobile phones, and can achieve a lot of functions on its own, which greatly broadens its usage scenario.
Powerful but easy to use
TicWatch Pro uses a touch screen operation, with two solid buttons on the right. The operation logic is based on click and sliding. The notification bar is drawn up from the main interface and the quick operation interface is pulled down from the main interface. The two solid keys are the main interface and the sports area respectively. Operational logic needs to be learned, but it is relatively easy to use.
First of all, let's take a look at mobile payment. In this cashless society, the 100 yuan in the pocket may not be spent for more than half a year. In addition to the convenient mobile phone scan code payment, the watch, as a more personal smart device, is obviously more convenient and portable in mobile payment. Open the Alipay software on your watch and use the mobile Alipay client to scan the code to bind your account. Raise your wrist to sweep the code to pay, do you feel like 007?
Ticwatch Pro built-in NFC chip, can achieve mobile payment function, support UnionPay QuickPass flash payment and Alipay sweep code payment. It is worth mentioning that TicWatch Pro also supports the function of bus cards, but currently supports the Beijing area, and will gradually open up more cities in the future.
As a sports watch, Ticwatch Pro places a solid button specifically for sports functions. All you have to do is press the button on the side to enter the sports interface. TicWatch Pro supports several mainstream sports modes, such as outdoor walking, indoor running, outdoor cycling, and free training. You are free to set sports goals, such as time, heat and other information, the watch will also monitor your heart rate in real time during exercise, providing you with a clear anti-collapse simple operation, you can act as a personal trainer.
The power of Ticwatch Pro, a Wear OS system, is much more than that. It has built-in Google's officially designated Chinese intelligent voice engine, TicWatch Virtual personal Assistant. All you have to do is press the button at the top or shout "Hey Ann" to activate the voice assistant.
Like voice assistants on mobile phones, TicWatch virtual personal assistants can ask about the weather, find routes, search for food, and so on. Questions such as "what's the weather like today" and "what's good nearby" can be answered perfectly. It's a lot easier to raise your wrist and ask questions than a cell phone.
In addition, TicWatch Virtual personal Assistant also has built-in translation software to support mutual translation in most languages, which is really powerful for a watch. For users traveling abroad, it is very reliable to simply ask for a way! In addition, the voice note-taking feature can quickly convert voice into text and record inspiration anytime, anywhere.
Summary: an "independent" and powerful smartwatch
Ticwatch Pro, a smartwatch that sells for 1499RMB, still maintains its fine tradition of high quality and low price. Both the cool fuselage of the atmosphere and the blessing of the Wear OS system make the watch stand out from the crowd of smartwatches.
The TicWatch team added a lot of human thinking to the watch, adding their innovation to this excellent product while digging deep into the habits and needs of consumers. Although the current Wear OS system and iOS with the use is still not perfect, but in the Android ecosystem, TicWatch Pro is definitely your choice!
