Mobvoi officially presents the TicWatch 5 Pro
Admittedly, the presentation of the TicWatch 5 Pro by Mobvoi is no longer a huge surprise. The Chinese wearables manufacturer had already banged the advertising drum in advance and raffled off 10 of the new smartwatches. If you weren’t among the fortunate winners, you now have the opportunity to purchase what is arguably the fastest, most powerful, and most innovative Wear OS 3 smartwatch from Mobvoi in Obsidian Black for 359.99 euros from Amazon!
As the wearer of a TicWatch smartwatch from the very beginning, I can at least not hide my anticipation of testing the TicWatch 5 Pro! Not only is the very fast and energy-efficient Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 installed, but the company continues to indulge in its dual-layer display technology. Two displays are superimposed here: a monochrome FSTN LCD display and underneath a typical colored OLED panel. This in turn should lead to longer battery life. With the TicWatch 5 Pro, there is talk of 80 hours with just one battery charge. According to the company, the quick charge pumped the 628 mAh battery from 0 to 65 percent within 30 minutes.
Furthermore, Wear OS 3.0 is now pre-installed ex works.The answer regarding the update availability for older TicWatch models is still pending. Also new is the rotating crown on the right side, just below the hardware button. This offers different functions such as faster navigation and starting apps, adjusting the volume and zooming in/out on maps.
The TicWatch 5 Pro is certified according to the military standard 810H and can withstand the pressure of a water column of 50 meters (5 ATM). This time, too, there is a veritable firework of additional functions such as contactless payment via NFC, GPS tracking, 24-hour heart rate, stress, respiratory rate, VO2 max and blood oxygen monitoring. Your sleep can be tracked together with the skin temperature and then evaluated.The latest TicWatch model offers over 100 professional training modes for users to choose from.
A speaker is built in as well as a microphone so that you can make phone calls with your connected Android or Apple smartphone from your wrist. Last but not least, I would like to mention that you can not only design your watch face (dial) individually on your smartphone with the “Mobvoi Health” app, but also equip the “Quick Panel” with the icons that are most important to you. All in all, a really well-rounded package that Mobvoi delivers to us here, which of course still has to be checked by the NextPit editorial team in a detailed test to see how far everything is true.
