The market is flooded with smartwatches, and many of the leading ones Apple Watch and Android Wear included carry a hefty price tag. The Ticwatch is a cost effective alternative, coming in under $200 and offering a competitive range of features. It also had a pretty successful run on Kickstarter where it raised over $2 million from over nine thousand backers.
The Ticwatchs Ticwear OS makes it easy to get notifications, track fitness goals, read texts, and even use GPS navigation all without taking out your smartphone. The intuitive interactions not only work, but theyre also creatively named to make the experience more fun. For example, a tickle is a side touch stript hat lets you scroll, select, and zoom and a flip and knock is the gesture control system for calls and songs. On top of those features, the Ticwatch 2 sports voice command and a sleek, round face with customizable backgrounds and a vibrant 400 by 400-pixel OLED display. Its also IP65 rated, meaning you have the freedom to get it a little wet without worrying about it breaking. Finally, theres the battery life: One 80-minute charge carries you through two days of use.
You can get the Ticwatch 2 Active Smartwatch for $169.99, which is 15% off the typical $199.99 price tag.
