Poor Battery Life - Why Should I Need to Switch to Essential Mode?
My TicWatch Pro doesn't hold up to the hype in regards to battery life. I've had the watch for nearly 3 months and I need to charge it EVERY Night. Presently, it is 12:50pm (Arabian Standard Time/Kuwait) as I write this and the watch is at 67%. I've been wearing the watch for just about 6 hours today. I have similar concerns with my TicPod Free (earbuds). I was excited for both but won't buy another Mobvoi product for a long time, if ever. Their customer service is mediocre at best. The user must contact customer service, fill out a warranty re...quest form, a few days later answer more questions and upload pictures. How can a person take a picture of poor battery life? Very frustrating experience. I've purchased a set of JBL Endurance Peak earbuds as a replacement for the TicPods. A costly lesson learned. Please Note: I purchased both from Mobvoi's Website. 0

Promises much, disappointing delivery
After using my new TicWatch Pro for over a month, I am disappointed. The heart rate monitor is off by at least 25 beats per minute on average. GPS is sporadic. The watch keeps time just fine, but you don't need to spend so much money just to keep accurate time.
Purchased in January 2019 for $345.00.
Ticwatch Pro, hmmm... not as good as expected
I was looking for a smartwatch. Galaxy Watch was my first choice until I watched some YouTube reviews, they said Tichwatch Pro is a good alternative for the Galaxy watch if you think it's too expensive. I was convinced, purchased one about a week ago. it was on special, cost me $270.
Here are my pros and cons.
1. low cost.
2. good looking. Im really happy with the look. personally, I think it looks as sexy as galaxy watch
3. The essential mode is pretty cool.
Cons:...1. screen quality is far behind the Galaxy watch. Watch faces ain't looking as good as in the photos on their website. not very bright. I struggle to read the watch under direct sunlight. 2. lagging. so bad, some apps take a few seconds to load up. 3. features are limited. no auto detection for activities. You have to manually start and stop an activity. And no sleep tracking. (Even my daughter's $90 fitbit has that). 4. Not very smooth to use. I still can't get the contactless credit card working. I guess you need to unlock the watch, open the app, but as I said it's lagging so bad, I've given up to try. I just use my phone instead. And I found sometimes it's stuck on the activity I just finished on the essential screen (so it displays activity stats rather than time, very annoying). I have to start and stop a new activity to fix it. Conclusion: if you don't mind to spend $300 for a sexy looking watch and don't care about the rest, it's for you. Personally, I don't think it's worth it. I would spend a little more to get a decent one. One more thing, be careful YouTubers aren't always trustworthy.
