Performance could have been better
First thing that attracted me about this watch was its hardware configuration. The hardware config does not validate its performance. Display quality is not very impressive, I also have Huawei watch comparing to that this watch a bad choice.

After 9 months I officially hate this watch
After much research, including this website, I bought the Ticwatch Pro. It is now patently obvious that none of the reviews were long term, living with this watch for a few months is a completely different kettle of fish. It's no Samsung Galaxy watch (which my wife has) but at $280 on special, it seemed like a good buy, I now regret not getting the Samsung for less than 100 extra. Battery life when using the LED screen is not as good as the Samsung, so far with moderate use I've managed 2 days before it got to 30%, I think this is around a day ...short of the galaxy watch. That said it was also over $130 cheaper. I din't really buy this watch as a fitness tracker which is just as well as the heart rate monitor is a s good as useless!! I have tried all sorts of positions on my arm/wrist and whilst it is randomly in the ball park, when I am exercising it can be up to 50 BPM out !! This makes the fitness part of the watch as good as useless, also the 24 hr heart monitor doesn't work either. The step counter does seem to be somewhere in the ballpark tho. The smartwatch features all seem to work pretty well with no clunkiness to speak of, downloading an app or an update is slower than paint drying but I suspect this is the case with any smartwatch. Important!! Since owning this watch for 3 months, other than the fitness part of it being useless, it disconnects from your phone regularly without any notice, when you get a message or a call and the watch doesn't react, that's your first clue it has disconnected even tho the wear OS app says its connected !! The clue is that the battery charge is not displayed. Also, all the watch faces look like toy watch faces unlike the Samsung, so I'm changing the rating to a 2. Oh, and good luck with getting support, LOL UPDATE : 20 October 2020. Its official, I hate this watch. It has gone back for warranty after less than a year with a black mark now showing on the LCD screen. Other than that, all the above is unchanged and I wish I'd spent an extra 100 on a Samsung galaxy watch, my wife has none of the issues I have. UPDATE : Uggh, bought a Samsung galaxy watch and almost topped myself over trying to get the flippin thing to connect, after a week and hours of research I got it sorted but now owning a galaxy watch has proven to me the ticwatch isn't too bad after all, so I changed the star rating accordingly. The Samsung is probably superior in a few ways but ease of connectivity is definitely not one of them

Mediocre. Does the job but not the best.
The smartwatch handles all the tasks and activities it is set out to do, however, the gestures can be bit buggy and lag without slow, smooth controlled movements. It works well as long as you aren't rushing around it. The pre-installed ticwatch software 'tichealth, tic pulse,...' could all be integrated a little better on the smart phone to make a smoother experience.
Battery life is good/ok. Depends on your activity and watch face used as this heavily affects it. on the more aesthetic or colourful faces, battery life would last 1 day. Using s...tock watch faces with a darker skin can last up to 2.5 days average (this is running an always on screen). Rarely finding myself using essential mode however i can see its benefits as it can run when you reach critical battery. The charging pad is a little frustrating with poor build quality. Had to get a replacement in for a faulty charge cable. All in all, probably amongst the better watches on the market comparatively with the battery life and Wear OS however little lackluster in the whole experience.
