today we’re taking a look at the mobvoi tickwatch Pro 4G one of the first where OS smart watches with 4G connectivity

so first of all we’ll start with the unboxing that we’ve got a well packaged product with all the features etc on the back when we open it up we first get the tickwatch Pro and behind that we get the instruction manual along with the USB charger

the charger has the pin connectors that line up with the watch and the tick watch pro attaches to this magnetically making it easy to place on the dock when charging

will quickly run through the specs and then take a look at the features and how well this performs we’ve got a dual display on the tickwatch Pro consisting of a 1.4 inch AMOLED along with a monochrome LCD display these are protected at by Gorilla Glass 3 it contains 4 gigabytes of storage with 1 gigabyte of RAM and runs on where OS

it’s powered by the Snapdragon wear 2100 and it has a 415 milliamp hour battery with some great power safe features for long lasting battery

it’s got a built-in speaker it’s ip68 water-resistant and it can be used for swimming tracking it has NFC and built-in GPS Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 4.2 and 4G LTE

finally it of course has sensors to monitor heartrate detect ambient light and an off body sensor the tip watch pro 4G has a military standard a durability certificate the watch face is made of a poly minding glass fiber with anode stainless steel bezel in an aluminium back cover we get a silicon strap which is ideal for swimming in it’s both lighter and thinner than the previous tick watch pro bluetooth

another great advantage over the Bluetooth model is 1 gigabyte of RAM which really helps boost the speed and performance of the device so when it comes to smartwatches I’m personally a big fan of where OS it means we can easily link our phone and if we need more apps or what faces we can simply get them from the Play Store the phone is compatible with both iOS and Android the what Pro has many useful features for tracking our sleep and sporting activities and thanks to their well thought-out design that we can use different modes to save battery

when it comes to the display we’ve got a dual display which is great for battery life we’ve got the AMOLED display for the normal use of the watch and when that’s not in use we have a monochrome LCD
display that’s always on and consumes much less power we can actually turn the AMOLED display off and use the LCD only if we want to use as just a normal watch it will then only show us the time date and steps and the watch can last for a long time in this mode

to bring back the AMOLED display yet we simply press one of the buttons to use it as a normal watch

and for those who don’t want this there’s also an always-on display mode that will keep the AMOLED display on but it will of course use more power and of course that we do have the auto brightness settings to save on battery life when using the AMOLED display

display we’ve also taken battery saving a step further and provided us with an essentials mode when in the essential mode we have the LCD screen only and pressing the button will not bring the AMOLED display back on

we can still press the bottom button to take our heart rate but you won’t be receiving any notifications when using in the essential mode you’ll only lose a couple of percentage battery each day so this can be very useful if you can’t have a charge

to exit essential mode we simply press and hold at the top button to reboot into the standard mode when it comes to general use of the watch it’s great everything is very responsive and we can swipe through apps and menus at night and easily

it has the tilt awake feature by default so it will always be on the LCD display until we actually need to take a look at the screen navigation on the tickwatch Pro what also works very well the top button is the back button the bottom button is to track a fitness activity and we can also swipe the screen to navigate

the great thing about the bottom button is we can single press to start fitness tracking double press to activate Google pay for those who want to make payments using the watch and NFC

we can also long press this button for another menu the menu allows us to send an SOS if required at which we’ll immediately dial emergency services and broadcast your location

we can also enter the essential mode we talked about earlier restart power off and we can even customize a WhatsApp this button opens

if we swipe right on the main display it takes us to the Google assistant where we can speak to it as you would normally

if we swipe left it brings us to our tiles where we can view things like steps weather and calendar you can also customize these tiles to include the things you need for instance I’ve added a timer

if we swipe up we can see our notifications from our apps and one thing I like here is that if we read something like a whatsapp message it will also provide us with some quick reply options to just press it’s great that we can read all of our messages and notifications on the watch

if we swipe down that we get flight mode settings speaker on or off Google Play screen off and finally a do not disturb mode

if we hold down on the main display it also allows us to pick from the
default watch faces and we can of course download more and use any watch face from Google Play

if we single tap the top button it shows us a list of our apps and of course being where OS we can head to the Play Store and download the apps we need being where OS it is more a limited version of the Play Store but it also allows you to search by voice commands which make things much easier of course when using a watch

when it comes to the fitness tracking you can use your google fit apps and we also have the tick exercise you can set your exercise activity before starting or we can enable tick motion in settings tick motion will proactively track your activities in the background without the need to manually set them

the tickwatch Pro 4G offers improved autonomous tracking and 24/7 heart rate monitoring in the background we can use the mobile app on our mobile to view our fitness activities and the watch pairs with the phone to make this setup nice and easy

we can also track our sleep with the tick sleep app this uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect and track our sleep without pressing any buttons and it will give us information on the sleep it provides us with an analysis on sleep cycles in time spent sleeping and includes our heart rate with every stage of the cycle unfortunately I can’t get much data on this is personally I cannot sleep while wearing a watch but I know it’s a feature that many people require you can also use the tick smart alarm that monitors your sleep cycle and it will wake you up with a subtle vibration when in a state of light sleep

we’ve also got a built-in speaker for Google assistance and notifications and we can even listen to music on the watch

well not the loudest speaker it’s good enough for what we need and it can still be heard clearly now one of the key features of the tickwatch Pro 4G is of course the cellular connectivity because of the 4G connectivity you can make calls texts and use data wherever you are in your phone can stay at home unfortunately I can’t test this myself is 3 in the UK doesn’t currently support this however many networks do it supported by Verizon in the USA and Vodafone in UK in Germany and more boy are working to extend the support to other carriers

it’s a great feature that means that the times you do forget your
phone or simply don’t want to take it out then you’re not going to miss out on anything especially is we can even make payments from the watch overall I think the tickwatch Pro is great it offers everything we need from a SmartWatch and a fitness tracker and I think it has been well thought out with the customizations to suit your personal needs the watch is currently available on Amazon for 249 pounds or $300 in the USA
