Ticwatch S2 Features

Display and Design

The new Ticwatch S2 doesn’t have the most outstanding design, but it’s a lot better than its predecessor. It has a rugged and bold design yet stylish. Its looks more like a smartwatch you could wear during sporting events. It’s designed with light weight materials, polycarbonate casing and silicon straps. It’s good to know that the straps can be changed with 22mm in width straps unlike its predecessor which had GPS built into the strap which rendered it irreplaceable.

The polycarbonate casing extends to the bezel which has Arabic numeral engraved on it. It would have been better if the bezel is rotatable just like Samsung Galaxy watch.

The display of Ticwatch S2 is great, it uses AMOLED which results in a better viewing angle, however it’s not so easily readable under sunlight. It supports touchscreen and has a finely designed button by the side which makes navigating the interface easier.

The Ticwatch S2 comes with lots of preloaded watch faces to choose from or download one from the app store. It is currently available in black color, but also comes in white color which is currently not available as of the time of writing post.

Battery Life Is Quiet Impressive

Ticwatch S2 received a battery life boost, it uses a lithium ion battery with a 415mAh capacity. On mixed usage you should get up to 2 days or more battery life. It’s not the best of battery life, but this is great and better than its predecessor. It’s enough to see you through your workout session and if you decide to go on a short holiday, the Ticwatch S2 should see you through the weekend.

Waterproof Rating/Protection

Ticwatch S2 has 5ATM waterproof rating making it water resistant up to 50 meters. It’s good to see the S2 join the leagues of smartwatches that are swim-proof. You can wear the watch under rain or to the shower and if you choose to go swimming with, it would be just fine.

Ticwatch S2 is also rated MIL-STD-810G for US military standard durability test. This makes the S2 a rugged smartwatch that can withstand tough conditions.

It’s no doubt a fantastic choice for explorers and adventure seekers.

Memory and Media Features

It come with about 4GB ROM out of which about 2GB is available for storing your data and files. 512MB RAM support the smooth operation of the watch. It also has a microphone by the side which means you can answer calls directly from the S2 or access voice command features via Google assistant which is now more comprehensive and helpful.

Activity tracking

Ticwatch S2 just like its predecessor is still fitness focused, but it’s even better now as it comes with TicMotion, an invisible technology that proactively tracks your activities without you needing to activate anything . It goes beyond just counting steps or calculating calories.

Ticwatch S2 is compatible with both Android 4.4 or later and iOS 9.3 or later. It runs on Wear OS 2.2 which means you have access to more apps. It is important to note that Wear OS is a lot better than what it was just 9 months ago. One of the new features is the notification stream lets you see more notifications at a glance.
