The TicWatch E2 is the successor to the TicWatch E, and it comes packing a number of features that make it the \u201cultimate fitness and swim companion\u201d as claimed by its Chinese manufacturer Mobvoi. The watch is decent to look at, comes with all the main features that you\u2019ll need to use for your fitness, and is a lot less expensive than the Apple watch if you\u2019d not be comfortable spending too much money. Make sure you sit through our Mobvoi TicWatch E2 review to find more about it, and see if it's the best android smartwatch for you.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Ticwatch E2\r\nIf you\u2019ve never owned any wear OS smartwatches before, then the TicWatch E2 would be a nice, affordable one to start with. It comes with the essential heart rate monitor, runs wear OS from Google, and has a battery life that should be able to see it through one full day.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nUnlike the samsung galaxy android smartwatch, the TicWatch E2 runs Google\u2019s wear OS, which places various fitness tracking apps like Google Fit at your disposal. Thanks to its third party app support, you won\u2019t just be limited to the apps that exist within the Google infrastructure. You\u2019ll be able to download more apps like Messenger and Uber, and with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, you shouldn\u2019t expect any lag. The watch also has a decent battery life, meaning you\u2019ll be able to get at least a day\u2019s use on a single charge even when you\u2019re using its heart rate monitor to measure your pulse and its GPS feature to track the distance covered when working out.\r\nDesign\r\nThere\u2019s really not much difference between the Mobvoi TicWatch E2, its predecessor, or even the ticwatch pro smartwatch in terms of how they look. The E2 sports a circular 1.4-inch AMOLED touchscreen screen that\u2019s got a 404ppi pixel density, and a crown button on the side that surprisingly doesn't come with any rotating feature. This means scrolling is going to be more of an on screen activity. The lack of an ambient light sensor means it won\u2019t be able to adjust well under sunlight, but you can choose a watch face that is made up of dark colors to try and work around this issue.\r\nValue\r\nThe lack of NFC support for contactless payments on the Mobvoi TicWatch E2 is probably the one area where the smartwatch may have been unable to rise up to our expectations, but other than that, we\u2019re pretty satisfied with what it has to offer. If this is something that you absolutely cannot do without, then consider getting the Garmin Vivoactive 3 GPS Android Smartwatch. Aside from that, the wear OS smartwatch comes with a decent amount of water resistance, which then allows it to have a swim tracking mode to track the distance covered when you\u2019re swimming.\r\nTicwatch E2 Wrap Up\r\nLike many wear OS watches, the E2 is not that difficult to use, and already comes with familiar infrastructure if you\u2019re an Android user. The watch can also be paired with both Android and iOS devices, and comes with enough fitness features to give you reliable feedback on your workouts.
