Android Wear in particular , are not in a moment of great success. The initial fever of smartwatches seems to have deflated, so the numbers reflect, but despite everything there are still brands that offer their proposals and help the Android Wear ecosystem continue to grow.
The Android Wear watch from Louis Vuitton that costs almost 2,500 dollars, but today we bring you something different, and especially cheap. The firm Mobvoi is raising funds in Kickstarter for the creation of Ticwatch S&E, a pair of very complete smartwatches with attractive prices.
Mobvoi is a firm founded by a former employee of Google that already has some wearables in its catalog, but without a doubt the new Ticwatch are its most attractive models, mainly because they have Android Wear 2.0 and not a modified version as it happened before.
The Ticwatch come in two versions, the Express model is more compact and lightweight and will have a final price of $ 159, while the Sport model is somewhat heavier and its design is highlighted by the frame surrounding the screen. The price of the Sport version will rise to $ 199.
The two share most of their technical sheet.
- They feature a 1.4-inch round OLED screen
- 400 x 400 pixel resolution
- Mediatek MT2601 dual-core processor at 1.2 GHz
- 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal capacity
- They also have WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, heart rate meter and GPS
- Sport model has an improved GPS integrated in the strap
The IP67 certificate also stands out , with which the watch can be submerged for a maximum of 30 minutes at a depth of one meter. In addition, the screen is covered with a resistant anti-scratch glass sheet.
The Kickstarter campaign ends on june 6, but in Mobvoi they have nothing to worry about. With more than a month’s margin, they have already raised $ 773,000, seven times more than their initial goal of $ 100,000. You are still in time to get one of these watches for a more adjusted price if you participate, specifically the Ticwatch Express would go for $ 119 and the Sport model for $ 139, 104 and 121 euros respectively. Much better than the Louis Vuitton watch, right?
