In a nutshell, there’s nothing about the Mobvoi TicWatch E2 that you haven’t seen before. It has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display and a bulky 13mm case. It’s water-resistant up to 50 meters so you can take it swimming, and it has a heart-rate sensor. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 2100. It has a respectable 415mAh battery, and it runs the latest version of Wear OS.
What’s impressive about the TicWatch E2 isn’t its specs or features. It’s not even anything it does. It’s that for $160, you can get a Wear OS device that has all of the latest software features, dutifully tracks your steps and exercise, lasts all day, and looks like a watch that costs a hundred dollars more. While we’ve been waiting for a Pixel Watch or some other high-end Wear OS device to challenge Apple Watch at the high end, Mobvoi has done something Fossil, Huawei, and Samsung haven’t: Made a full-featured Android smartwatch that’s practically an impulse buy.
