We published our review earlier this year on Mobvoi’s latest smartwatch. TicWatch Pro 4G allows users to share their existing phone number on Verizon and conduct phone calls without a smartphone. This also extends to SMS and use of messaging apps.
As far as Wear OS smartwatches go, the TicWatch Pro 4G is one of the best options out there. Mobvoi has doubled the RAM from the predecessor device which makes a huge difference in response time of the operating system. Everything now works well, users get a smooth and entirely lag-free experience, unlike some other Wear OS watches.
The device can be picked up now on Amazon at a discount. The same deal can also be found on mobvoi.com.
