The Ticwatch Pro is the top of the range of the Ticwatch series, produced by Mobvoi, a Chinese company that in recent years has often made its name in this sector. This model has a Wear OS by Google operating system supported by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage space.

It is the first Android smartwatch to have two displays, superimposed between them: a 1.39″ OLED panel with 400 × 400 resolution and a second LCD panel, which will be really useful for the general autonomy of the smartwatch and for use in clock stand-by, recalling the normal traditional wristwatches.

It is waterproof with IP68 certification and has a 415 mAh battery that will allow us to use it for about 48 hours, obviously based on our typical daily uses. In addition to the GPS module, which will allow us to monitor our physical activities, there are the accelerometers, the gyroscope, the 24-hour active heart rate sensor and the NFC module for contactless payments through the Google Pay platform.

In my opinion, the Amazfit Verge is the top in the middle range of the Amazfit Smartwatch line, it stands right in the middle between the Amazfit Bip and the Stratos 2.

The design is very nice to look at and its 1.3″ display AMOLED, supported by an Amazfit OS operating system and a 1.2 GHz dual core processor with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage, will allow us to manage notifications of our smartphone and all the physical activities undertaken (IP68 certified).

The GPS, the accelerometer and the gyroscope are present, but unfortunately they lack the NFC and the light sensor, negligible certainly seen the price of this product. The smartwatch is IP68 certified, water resistant up to 5 ATM and the 415 mAh battery offers us a real use of about 2 days.
