Mobvoi recently presented a new pair of watches, this time equipped with the most common Android Wear, and with a competitive price. Is it worth getting one? We’ve tested them out, so here is our review of the most talked about smartwatch right now!

Release date and price
Both watches are available to purchase on the official Mobvoi website at a price of $199.99 and $159.99 for the ticwatch S and ticwatch E. A 20% discount code is also available if you buy it here.
Ticwatch S (S stands for Sport) is available in Knight (black) Aurora (Yellow) and Glacier (white). All three versions have a black ring with numbers printed in the yellow color, same as the Aurora verson.
Ticwatch E (E stands for Express) is available in the same colours but with different names: Shadow, Ice and Lemon. On Ticwatch E you don’t have the numbered ring, but on the other hand you can change the strap, which is not possible on the sports model, as it has GPS antennas inside the rubber bands.
For this review, we received the Tickwatch S in ‘Aurora’ and Ticwatch E in Ice colour.
