Mobvoi Inc., a leading artificial intelligence (AI) company backed by Google™ and Volkswagen, is launching TicWatch Pro, whose innovative Layered Display technology enables it to last between 5-30 days on a single charge. It will be available on Amazon for US and UK customers, and for Australian customers with an RRP of AUD369.99. Powered with Wear OS by Google, TicWatch Pro helps users stay connected to what matters to them and make the most of their time.

TicWatch Pro’s Layered Display technology (patent pending) is an innovative breakthrough, enabling the user to switch between an FSTN (Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic) LCD display and an OLED display that sit on top of one another. The FSTN display (top layer) is a transparent LCD display chosen due to its low power consumption, high visibility in direct sunlight, and transparent quality when not turned on. This is important in order to ensure the OLED (bottom layer) display’s brightness and colors aren’t compromised when in use.

“TicWatch Pro is the result of our relentless pursuit to make a premium smartwatch that greatly resolves the battery life issues which have been inherent in smartwatches”, explained Zhifei Li, CEO and Co-Founder of Mobvoi. “Our approach has been to innovate with the screen, radically reducing battery consumption. Ultimately, TicWatch Pro is our flagship smartwatch designed to further our mission of bringing anyone and everyone access to affordable, high quality smart devices.”

The power to switch between displays and their related “modes” allows TicWatch Pro users to achieve unprecedented battery life and control over battery usage in an award-winning smartwatch.

  • In “Smart Mode”, the OLED display is active along with Wear OS by Google, and battery life is up to two full days of usage
  • In “Essential Mode”, only the FSTN display is in use and battery life can last up to 30 days
  • When Smart Mode reaches low battery, Essential Mode can automatically be turned on so the watch can last for another three days
  • To switch to Essential Mode, users can turn it on in a dedicated app or long press the watch’s Function (lower) button
  • To switch to Smart Mode, users can long press on the watch’s Power (upper) button.

In Essential Mode, users will see time, date, step counting, and heart rate monitoring. The health and fitness data syncs when TicWatch Pro is switched to Smart Mode. OTA updates over time will add more functions into Essential Mode (since the sensors can still be accessed in this mode) including distance traveled, calories burned, speed and cadence. In Smart Mode, users will have the complete Wear OS by Google experience through the OLED display.

Along with its innovative display and unrivaled battery life, TicWatch Pro features include:

  • Google PlayStore – Access to thousands of apps through the on-watch Play Store, and the ability to download them directly on the watch
  • Google Assistant™ – Access the Assistant directly on your wrist to check the weather, start your run, set a reminder and more just by asking
  • Premium build quality – Watch bezel and rear cover are stainless steel (SUS), while the rest of the case is a type of hard nylon (polyamide) reinforced with glass fiber (50GF); skin-friendly silicone strap covered with premium genuine Italian leather
  • NFC Payments – Use Google Pay™ to pay directly from your wrist
