Mobvoi announced its latest models at CES 2019 earlier in the month but stopped short of providing any details on pricing and availability. Today we learn how much the Ticwatch E2 and Ticwatch S2 will cost. Indeed, the two went up for sale today.
Starting immediately, both the Ticwatch E2 and Ticwatch S2 are available to purchase from both Mobvoi’s online store as well as through Amazon. Both are among the least expensive Wear OS models available today.
The Ticwatch E2 runs $160 while the Ticwatch S2 comes in at just $180, some $20 less than its predecessor. Neither watch should be considered premium but they are excellent options for consumers looking for a wallet-friendly Wear OS affair.
As we learned upon their announcement, this latest generation of affordable Ticwatch wearables employ Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform and not the MediaTek chipset from before.
The pair also feature 5ATM water resistance for splashes and shallow submersion, swim tracking, and TicMotion features. Designed by Mobvoi, these include automatic workout tracking and swim monitoring; custom gestures and more options are on the horizon.
The Ticwatch S2 comes with a US Military Standard 810G certification, which means it can withstand extreme temperatures and environments.
