• Meet the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE



    Verizon is about to have a new smartwatch in their accessory portfolio, Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE. The onboard eSIM won't be ready for activation until sometime in August, but early adopters can save $20 USD if they buy before then.

    Notable specs are as follows:

    1.39 inch AMOLED display @ 400 x 400 pixels
    FSTN LCD standby display
    Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor
    1 GB RAM / 4 GB storage
    Bluetooth / GPS / LTE (via eSIM) / NFC / WiFi
    IP68 water resistance (suitable for swimming pools)
    415 mAh battery
    22mm silicone quick release strap

    And here's a launch-day YouTube hands-on:



    While I personally prefer the FSTN displays on Casio's Pro Trek smartwatches, any transreflective display is a good thing to have on your wrist if you spend any time outdoors. And support for standard watch straps only sweetens the deal.

    Just don't expect too much in the way of battery life from Wear OS...
