When looking for a fitness tracker, the Mobvoi TicWatch 2 brand name does not come to mind. However, many athletes bought this smartwatch online at half the price of more known brands. It has a slim design available in different flavors of colors and packed with loads of fitness features. Therefore, what do the sports users think about this unknown name brand?
Pros / What Customers Like:
The first impression we got from different athletes is the classy design and looks like a watch compared to other name brands available. Another important thing mentioned is the lightweight feeling when placed on the wrist.
One more feature talked about by different health users is the Tickle Strip a thin veneer down the casing side. According to consumers, you control the device by stroking this strip up and down with the finger. This allows you to scroll through the different menus and apps.
Runners found the watch, great to use outdoors for reading the text and looking at background images during daylight making the screen a pleasure to use.
All love the fact that the smartwatch is customizable with different watch faces and accessing settings, on-demand heart rate. Even the performance of switching between alerts and apps has no complaints and they found the connectivity solid.
One of the most accurate features of this device according to different sports users is the on-demand heart rate monitor, but keeps track of your HR until paused.
Joggers and runners found the fitness app to connect with Google Fit, Strava, and RunKeeper great. They can keep track of their indoor and outdoor runs and great for cyclists to use as well. All this happens via the built-in GPS, but still in the test phase.
Cons / What Customers Don't Like:
The biggest complaint from sports a user is the battery life as it needs charging at the end of the day.
iPhone users complained that they need to keep the Ticwear app running and consumes the battery quicker.
Another negative experience mentioned by most professional sports users is setting up the device and takes a lot of time to get it up and running.
The TicWatch 2 is a worthy investment for the price it is currently selling. The performance is great, but the biggest concern is the battery use and after sale service when sold internationally.
