What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ticwatch 2 Active Silky Smooth Smartwatch - Charcoal
  • Comfortable to wear. It wasn't bulky and the strap had a pretty good fit
  • Great performance and build quality - not too heavy and materials seem to be quality.
  • Looks - Great size (for my wrist anyway), No flat tire ala Moto 360, ambient display always shows your face at a glance and flipping your wrist lights up the watch in full color.
  • Comes with a very good price for black plated 316L stainless steel case and strap plus sapphire crystal screen. The strap links can be added / removed according to your wrist size
  • Easy to use OS. The OS is easy to use with a touch screen, as well as the side tickle swipe. There's only one button, and it doesn't get in the way
  • There is a lot of functionality in this watch, but since it run on its own OS, they had to do everything from scratch.
Ticwatch E Smartwatch-Shadow
  • The watch band that comes with the watch is okay and feels comfortable
  • The screen looks great and the band is very comfortable. It's not too bulky and my wrists aren't that big.
  • Wear OS is a bit dull. I hear that the Ticwatch own software in the Ticwatch 2 is so much better. Wear OS is functional and works with Google's ecosystem well.
  • It feels and looks like a child's toy. It is very plasticy (the thin cheap kind). Also, it has a dull finish. It's not even trying to look like metal.
  • Wear OS. When it comes right down to it, the biggest con with this watch is (to me) the biggest con with every Android watch. Wear OS just stinks.

What customers say about "Display"
Ticwatch 2 Active Silky Smooth Smartwatch - Charcoal
  • The screen is pretty. It's not perfect, but it is bright and colorful.
  • Always ON display (ambient mode) supporting various watch faces that only consume ~3% per hour battery life.
  • The right ratio. The watch face is the perfect ratio for a display. It is not small or exuberantly big to accentuate someone's wrist.
  • I like that the time display can always be up and available.
  • Tickle strip to scroll the information on the display without touching the screen.
Ticwatch E Smartwatch-Shadow
  • OLED display is very nice, I like it more than LCD especially with a black themed watch face. The text really pops.
  • The processor is zippy and the display is bright with beautiful colors.
  • The display is bright and it's really not that big as some have eluded to.
  • The watch is comfortable, snappy, has a beautiful display
  • The 1.4 inch screen makes the everything on the display legible and navigable. A big screen also makes the on-screen keyboard easy to use.

What customers say about "Features"
Ticwatch 2 Active Silky Smooth Smartwatch - Charcoal
  • I really like the smart notifications (even though with iOS you don't get full functionality)
  • Customizable - A decent amount of downloadable watch faces for your moods. You can even customize with your own photo
  • Quite comprehensive built-in hardware / sensors include microphone, speaker, GPS, optical heart rate sensor, proximity sensor, and the usual accelerometer and gyroscope for step tracking.
  • Many basic apps that include Dialer, Calendar, Weather, Calculator, Stopwatch, Timer, Alarm, Music Player, Recorder, Fitness / Sport.
  • You have to have the app running on your phone for it to stay connected to the phone. Don't need that with my VA HR
  • There just weren't a lot of features outside of changing watch faces. (at least with iOS, I guess Android offers more flexibility it seems)
Ticwatch E Smartwatch-Shadow
  • Heart monitor - It is not always checking your heart rate, but that is a Wear OS issue. Google is planning to provide better software for that from what i hear.
  • Speaker and mic on watch allow for making phone calls from your wrist. However, this is also a con (see below).
  • Ability to download music right to the watch is a plus (I suppose for some people).
  • No sleep monitoring but that means nothing to me.
  • It sits very high on the wrist, much more so than my Moto 360 which can make it tough to get under a shirt or jacket cuff. It's quite thick.

What customers say about "Power"
Ticwatch 2 Active Silky Smooth Smartwatch - Charcoal
  • Wireless Charging - so convenient and easy to just drop it onto the charger.
  • Magnetic wireless charging dock, not pin charging, and comes with volcanic stand. So the watch can become your bedside clock during charging.
  • Battery life. Quite good! I haven't had it go below 50% after a whole day of use, but I imagine that when I go running, it will deplete more quickly.
  • Battery life is decent. I put it on around 7am and take it off around 10pm. So far, the battery level is around 40-50% by bedtime depending on whether I did any exercise that day. But that's not bad; similar to a smartphone.
  • GPS does quickly reduce battery life
Ticwatch E Smartwatch-Shadow
  • The battery has 300mah - a bit less than an apple watch 2. In my experience you'll have to charge the watch every night - but I'm ok with that and hope that future generations will have longer battery life.
  • If you don't use it at all (turn off always on display, GPS, WIFI, notifications) I'm sure the battery would last up to two days as stated.
  • Battery life is also on par with the majority of smart watches out there.
  • Battery life does improve as you let it completely die and recharge it a few times. But for me, it only lasts from morning to evening. I have it set to always on.
  • Battery life is short enough if the screen is set to "always on," but even with it switched in the other mode where the screen only comes on when you lift your wrist isn't enough to really justify the battery life.
