The newly released Ticwris Max 4G is like strapping a smartphone to your wrist. The massive device comes with a 2.86-inch widescreen display for all your browsing needs.

The timepiece very much resembles the LEMFO LEM T. This is another smartwatch with an almost equally humongous display.
Is there a market for such watches? We’re not so sure. Can you imagine yourself doing a run with one of these things strapped to your wrist? Mind you, it does have the usual fitness tracking sensors including heart rate. In all honesty, it all looks a bit ridiculous.
The device measures 75.2mm x 52mm x 16.6mm. This is enough to fit a 2.86 inch TFT screen with 640 x 480 of resolution. Ticwris Max weighs 153 grams, so it might give your wrist a bit of a workout which could be seen as a positive.
The IP67 waterproof body is made of metal with two physical buttons on the side, while the 32mm strap is available in silicone. On-board there’s an 8MP front-facing camera for HD video calls and an Applesque facial recognition unlock system. It apparently has an algorithm with the capacity to extract 1,068 facial features.
As you’d expect, the largest smartwatch in the world comes with an enormous 2,880 mAh battery. Typical smartwatches have batteries that are one tenth of this capacity. However, the size of the screen makes the thing very power hungry so the watch will run only between five and seven days.
Ticwris is powered by a MediaTek quad-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and runs Android 7.1. There’s also integrated GPS, 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi, and a slot for SIM card so you can make telephone calls. No microSD card slot, NFC or USB port, though.
We’re not really sure who the watch is aimed for but the ludicrous concept is reportedly attracting interest in Asia. Considering the specs, Ticwris has a surprisingly low price of $160 on Gearbest. But then again, you could just get yourself a smartphone.
