Ticwatch E3 Smart Watch Wear OS by Google GPS NFC
The rubber strap fits snugly on the right setting Initial setup was super easy and Wear OS makes it super helpful.
I had no issue with connectivity between the device, Wear OS, or the accompanying Mobvoi app.
TicHearing was eye opening as it uses the microphone to gauge the level of noise around you which was also interesting.
The E3 has 2 offset buttons that I have not had any comfort issues with.
All around great smartwatch, and I highly recommend it!
However I will add there are a few different functions on the watch you will not be able to use if your using an iPhone.
The two buttons on the side are mechanical.
It consistently fails to synch to the watch.
TicWatch E3 keeps track of your real-time fitness and health data. More than 100 professional workout modes from activities like mountain climbing, swimming, and ice skating. NFC payment supports Google Pay. Essential Mode kicks in automatically when the power percentage drops below 5 percent.
5/5I ordered the Ticwatch E3 to give another Wear OS device another shot.
Ticwatch E3 offers many of the same functions as a Whoop, so I've been enjoying watching how well it follows my activities. The device itself appears to be robust and strong, and the sensor and charging area are visible on the backface. The first setup was simple, and Wear OS makes it even easier. The hardware, Wear OS, and the associated Mobvoi software all worked flawlessly for me. TicExercise is effective, although I have yet to use it during a difficult workout. I've used it on a couple short walks around my neighborhood with my kids and it's kept me safe. Overall, I believe this device is excellent for the price, and Mobvoi has a quality product. Everything is tracked, but it is even better and more thorough than a Fitbit watch. How many hours of deep sleep do you get per night? TicBreathe is a fun tool that gives you a guided breathing practice that I find useful throughout the day. There are a few functions on the watch that you won't be able to access if you're using an iPhone, though. Making and receiving calls, as well as sending and receiving messages, can all be done through the watch, as well as using Google Pay. However, if you have an Apple phone and want something similar to a FitBit that is also connected to an Apple phone, this is the watch for you!
2/5The two buttons on the side are mechanical.
The TicWatch E3's mobile app (mobvoi) is the absolute worst. I contacted them when the watch froze several times. Their emails consistently said that a return shipping label had been affixed. It was never anything more than a screen photo that couldn't be printed large enough to be useful. My advice is to get away from this abomination of a device. There are some that have higher ratings. Pay attention: this one isn't worth half the price they're asking. ProsIt was pretty good when it worked. Cons The battery life is really short. As the battery level drops, the screen becomes unresponsive. Mechanical are the two buttons on the side. The top button, which provides access to activity tracking, oxygen, pulse oximetry, and a timer, is now stuck. This means I can't use any of the features that drew me to the watch in the first place. It was not possible to load the media. The nicest part is when the watch tells you one thing and the app tells you something completely different. It isn't worth half the price of the watch you pay for it, so don't get it if you don't plan on wearing it for more than a week.
