Layout, design and features …
The TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE has an average height of 56 millimetres and a width of approximately 48 millimetres, so that both men and women will enjoy it. At 72 grams, it’ s not too heavy to carry, even for delicate hands. The design is very much based on the shape of classic wristwatches and offers two control buttons on the right, with which it can easily navigate through the menus thanks to touchscreen support. Discreetly applied knurled patterns on the case and the upper push button, as well as the fine grooves on the 22mm wide silicone strap give the Smartwatch a pleasing look. Our model in the colour version Elegant Black is, as the name suggests, completely in black. This also applies to the lower lid, which carries the heart rate monitor and the electrical contacts for the charging station.
From below, we see the easy-to-operate closing mechanism for the watchstrap and the speaker opening, which is supposed to be particularly resistant to water and dust penetration due to its special design. After all, the watch is IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and according to the manufacturer it can even be worn while swimming. The heart rate monitor is slightly raised, but that doesn’t bother when wearing it.
We find familiar elements in the lock and the wrist band fixation. Here the wheel was not reinvented and that is a good thing. Often enough, designers try to replace proven designs with supposedly better ones for new products and then unfortunately often achieve the opposite. But not so with the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE. In any case, the material impression is excellent. The TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE has a very high-quality appearance thanks to its metal case.
If you put the Smartwatch on the charging station, it jumps towards you from a distance of 1cm, attracted by the strong, integrated magnet. So you don’t have to worry about bad contacts. If the watch is lying on the charging station, the total height is about 23mm.
Mobvoi has given the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE the same proven display as the TicWatch Pro for optimal battery usage. In normal operation, the Smartwatch activates the high-contrast AMOLED display, which is sufficiently bright even in daylight, when the watch is swivelled towards the field of vision.
But you have to take care of the power supply in form of a USB charger with at least 1A. Unfortunately, no appropriate power supply unit was included with the clock. This is a pity, as one will probably charge the watch every day and thus, an otherwise available charger will block the watch most of the time. By the way, there is no inductive charging possibility. Neither is it possible to charge the watch directly via USB cable. The watch must be removed for charging and put on the original charging station. However, the Smartwatch should be fully operational again in a good half hour if it wasn’t completely discharged.

Up to now the Smartwatch of Mobvoi has been convincing. But can the new 4G/LTE mobile technology also convince? We can now see this in practical testing!
