The smart watch technology has really been an evolution but to say the truth, no product has really offered a comfortable price tag. From the Apple Watch to the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, there hasn’t been a product that you would rightly want to order. However, things will definitely change with the Ticwatch 2, the most interactive smartwatch. Mobvoi recently launched this amazing smartwatch and received funding over $2 millions from Kickstarter fund raising campaign. And now this smartwatch is available for pre-order at just – $199.99, there’s a lot more to this watch than you have seen with similar technologies in the past. It also offers a list of specifications that other manufacturers wouldn’t quite dare to bring in together!
The Ticwatch looks like any ordinary dial you would regularly wear to your work. However, this time, the 400x 400 OLED panel integrates an impressive 287 ppi resolution – making the interface bright, vibrant and colorful. Further, the brushed metal bezel for the construction has a premium look to it and comes integrated with highly responsive sensors underneath. The design cues look similar to that of Samsung Gear 2.
