If you live in the United Kingdom or U.S., you'll need to head to Amazon to be able to buy the watch and if you want it soon you'll have to be an Amazon Prime member. From then until September 30, it'll be an Amazon exclusive product but you won't have to be a subcriber to the Prime service to be able to buy it.

Moving on from the display, though, the Ticwatch Pro doesn't skimp when it comes to the hardware. That means performance should be comparable to most other Wear OS options out there. It's actually something called a "Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic (FSTN)" LCD sitting on top of an OLED. Other smartwatches, like the Amazfit Bip, can last two weeks easily, and have always-on screens, but cut corners on the phone-like features. You'll need to be on WiFi, or have a tethered connection to your smartphone, to get the most from it. The FSTN display is also great for outdoor use.

The rest of the case is made of hard nylon reinforced with glass fibre. Where the compromise makes itself clear is in the wearable's sheer size: if you're not into large watches, the TicWatch Pro is not for you.

There are also five straps with genuine Italian leather on the outside and silicone on the inside, so you can take them running without ruining the design. TicWatch offers two colors, black or silver, but having seen both in person I don't think they'll win any awards for styling. It is available by way of Mobvoi's website if you don't want to wait.

The TicWatch Pro is of premium build quality and is IP68 water and dust-resistance. And the health and fitness features offered include heart rate and sleep monitoring, a calories burned counter, Global Positioning System and more.

Elsewhere, the TicWatch Pro lives up to its "Pro" moniker and features a heart rate sensor, NFC, IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, and Global Positioning System. The Google Assistant allows you to do other tasks and control other smart devices from the watch.


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.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the TicWatch Pro offers a 1.39-inch round OLED display with a resolution of 400×400, plus the FSTN display above that.

The Ticwatch Pro runs Google's Wear OS, so at its core you should get much the same experience as you do on the majority of smartwatches.

The two displays are layered, so that when the Essential Mode display (FTSN) is active you can not see the Smart Mode display (OLED) below it.

That's good, but no better than the likes of the Samsung Gear S3. Once you tap on the display, the OLED screen will kick in and the transparent display will switch off, giving you full access to Wear OS features again. You can enable it manually, and get up to 30 days use, or have Essential Mode automatically switch on when Smart Mode reaches low battery. While in Essential Mode, you can still keep track of the time, date, number of steps, and heart rate.
