My title says it all, bought a ticwatch, did all the recommended things to make sure the battery gets full potential and last for less then half a day, with flight mode enabled just over half a day.
I contacted them about this issue and all they offered for 30% off a new watch!
Stay away from Mobvoi products!
Purchased at Mobvoi for $300.00.
Clear display, poor battery!
Very difficult to set up with limited instructions or information about the apps that seem to default on loading. Great watch faces. But battery life is the killer. Having to charge twice within 24 hours even in flight mode overnight is just unacceptable, and there are cheaper alternatives that have a better battery life. Contacted Mobvoi support but unable to help as all their suggestions were already being tried.
Purchased in July 2020 at Amazon for $130.00.
I don't know if there is any other Google WearOS smartwatch with so many soild features that can be purchased for a fraction of the price compared to others .
Been using it for almost a year. Absolutely no issues at all. Few of my friends have bought it as well.
1) Price - Just $169 after discount.
2) Native Google wear OS
3) Waterproof upto some extent.
4) Has almost all the features of flagship smartwatches....
Purchased in July 2018 at Mobvoi for $169.00.
Love my watch! Works fantastically! Brilliant and accurate tracking of all my activities, and I love that it can figure out what exercise I am doing and will count my reps. Only problem is that it isn't water proof and needs to be charged every 36hours

Hardware not bad, wear os buggy and eventually broke
Purchased this in late 2017, and was pretty fiddly to set up. Once it was working, it worked reasonably well. Battery life was only just 24 hours, and really only useful for basic smartwatch functions. Earlier this year, it would not login (via 3 different Android phones). After 4-5 to-fro attempts with Mobvoi support, they agreed it was a software problem, and suggested we commence a warranty claim. The claim was rejected, however the offer of a 60% discount on a new one was made. If we returned the watch. They have not responded to the...request for a reconsideration of the warranty issue (failure was due to their software) and the likely recourse to Australian consumer law due to the failure. It was purchased via "The Official Tickstore AU" website, however the fine print taketh away consumer rights. TL;DR - if you buy this, get it from an Australian store such as amazon.com.au - that way you have normal consumer rights if it fails due to software problems.
Purchased in November 2017 for $189.00.
Pretty Good product
Bought it as I want to monitor my heartbeat more often and also monitor a daily steps I do. This was a pretty good watch which I bought online from Mobvoi, which was on offer. Have been using it for almost a year now and love it. The only trouble I had is, it sometime disconnect from my phone.
Only had it two months but going well so far. I treat watches pretty hard and it's coping so far. Connectivity was poor at the start but has settled down following a factory reset. Would get two days max out of the battery so remember to charge daily. Good smart watch for the price.
Great for the price
I bought this watch because I wanted a cheap smartwatch for my first one and I have to say it's the best watch, the battery lasts me all day easy with at least 50% left, the quality is great, has all the features you want. The best part about it is it's just as good as the big brands only affordable :)
Wonderful watch at a great price
I've been using this watch from the past 2 months and I'm totally happy with it. It comes with Google's flagship OS - Wear OS. You can change as many faces using the built-in or third party apps. What's more, it has a Heart rate sensor too. The apps work perfectly. The only thing it misses is payment.
Poor battery life.... Thats it.
All the smart watch is similar in fuction and battery life is important to me. I bought a Ticwatch S and have to charge every night. Its a pain. 200 dollars is affordable price? Must be joking. Their ads shows more thin and attractive watch which they dont make. Actual watch is bulky on my wrist and not comfy with my long sleeve shirt. They shouldnt do that. Shame....
Good affordable smartwatch
The hardware of the watch is good. Has a relatively accurate step counter, GPS and a heart rate monitor. Battery easily lasts a day. Definitely NOT a fitness tracker! Unlike fitness monitors, the heart rate monitor is only on if you are doing a fitness task. Room for improvement with software. Turning off the screen when you go to sleep is a chore (and can't be customised to use the hardware button currently), and sleep tracking needs to be activated manually. Also when using strava, it didn't tell me location services were off, and didn't trac...k my ride at all. Step tracking also overestimates, as the counter goes up when I'm sitting down and rotating on my chair. All things considered, my issues have been only with the software - mobvoi has done a brilliant job bringing good hardware together at a great price
Perfect budget smartwatch
This watch is a great buy for the money spent. Its not the best looking watch but my black one looks best of the three available. Battery life is good and its pretty study. The stock software is pretty annoying but you can disable it by not installing the companion app on the phone.
I use it for seeing what's next on my calendar, tracking steps and heart rate, and reading incoming notifications. Much better form factor than the Ticwatch S, and the only difference is the GPS location (both have it, the s has it in a different place). Battery life lasts a day easily/
This is a great smartwatch. I got it when it was on kickstarter but it is now available through their webstore on [weblink removed]
The watch runs for a day on a single charge. The step counter is very accurate and it has a heart rate monitor as well.
The only downside is that it is quite thick for a watch but not much thicker than the Huawei one.
