In the panorama of wearable devices that boast a Wear OS operating system and an economic price we find the Mobvoi company that through the TicWatch series has proven to be a leader in the sector since the beginning. Over the years we have seen many models including the TicWatch C2, presented at the end of 2018 and which from today has a worthy successor, the TicWatch C2 +, which does not overturn the essence of the past generation, confirming its general elegance, but it enhances the hardware.
In fact, the internal memory of the wearable smart is increased, passing from the canonical 512 MB of RAM to 1 GB, so that the fluidity of the device is even more palpable, also considering the increase in resources required by the specific apps for these watches. The strap is also improved, this time with a more sporty character as it is made of black silicone that is added to the more elegant one in leather, already installed by the company.
TicWatch C2 + is official: features and price
As mentioned before, the operating system runs on a Wear OS basis, which also allows the change of watch faces, a customization element that often makes the difference in choosing a wearable over another. The rest of the specifications remain unchanged, therefore TicWatch C2 + offers a 1.3-inch AMOLED display in 360 x 360 pixel resolution, set in a shell made of polyamide and fiberglass, with stainless steel frame and aluminum back.
We have dimensions equal to 42.8 x 42.8 x 12.7 mm while the protagonist that moves the entire system is the Snapdragon Wear 2100 CPU which is accompanied by 4 GB of internal storage (usually only 2 available for the user) for the installation of applications as well as music, photos, videos etc .. Unfortunately, the Bluetooth remains unchanged, confirmed with protocol 4.1 while we also find the presence of a WiFi module 802.11 b / g / n, as well as GPS / GLONASS / BeiDou and NFC for Google Pay payments.
The general picture of the characteristics of the new TicWatch C2 + is completed by a 400 mAh bathetry that guarantees about 2 days of continuous use, IP68 certification against liquids and dust and sensors such as gyriscope, accelerometers and cardio sensor for heart rate detection. The new and elegant TicWatch C2 + is already available for purchase on the Amazon store at the price of 209,99 euros in 3 different colors, such as Onyx, Platinum and Rose Gold.
What do you think of it? Do you find sense to these proposals that only add more RAM than the previous generation? I don't know about you but I expect a lot more from Mobvoi.
