Mobvoi has a brand-new smartwatch en route: The TicWatch Classic 2, or C2 for brief. Fittingly enough, it is among the classier Use OS smartwatches we have actually seen to date– Mobvoi currently has some strong entries under its belt– and it can be found in at a fairly economical cost of $200

It’s a happily simple style offered in 18 mm and 20 mm wristband sizes, and it can be found in increased gold, black, or platinum. Rather disappointingly, increased gold is just offered on the smaller sized size; a rose gold watch with a blue strap is among my preferred color mixes on my chunky wrists. That caution aside, it’s an attractive gadget, and I actually dig a few of Mobvoi’s analog watchfaces here.

Otherwise, it’s common Use OS fare. There’s a heart rate sensing unit, a 400 mAh battery great for 2 days, GPS, and NFC for payments. Regrettably, it’s stuck on the years-old Snapdragon 2100 platform– simply as gadgets are set to begin delivering with Qualcomm’s 3100 chips later on this year.

I dig the style, however that older chipset makes it a harder tablet to swallow. However, I have actually never ever actually had issues with the older chipset’s efficiency on current variations of Android Use and Use OS; I generally would’ve valued the additional battery life from the more effective hardware.

You can pre-order the TicWatch C2 from Mobvoi’s site beginning today for $200; the watches will deliver the very first week of December.
