Mobvoi’s new budget TicWatch GTX smartwatch is now available

For those that may not know, Mobvoi has become somewhat of a darkhorse for Google devices over the last few years. With multiple iterations of Android Wear, Google smart speakers, and earbuds, the “Tic” line of devices are affordable options for those living the connected life. Today the company’s latest a budget smartwatch targetting the workout warriors with the TicWatch GTX is ready for purchase.The Ins and OutsWhile the $60 price tag will get most people’s attention, the software might be the biggest story for the TicWatch GTX. This marks the first time the Mobvoi team has strayed away from Android Wear. The GTX runs a custom Realtime OS that the company claims leads to the optimization it accomplished.That mainly shows itself in up to 10 hours of battery life. Android Wear has struggled to find that kind of endurance, but the TicWatch GTX presents that it can far exceed the single day that Wear OS lasts on most watches.Outside of battery, the TicWatch GTX offers normal sports tracking you’d find on most smartwatches. There are 14 workout modes to follow you while running, cycling, swimming, or even yoga. General steps are getting calculated as well of course.Sleep tracking is also onboard. This should give users the ability to better track trends about a good night’s sleep versus a sleepless evening.Other smart options are the basic interactions with the paired phone. The TicWatch GTX offers notifications for incoming calls and messages. You can also control media playback, check the weather, and find your phone.Internally, the GTX is fairly straight forward. You will get 160KB of RAM, heart rate monitor, accelerometer, IPX68 water resistance, and Bluetooth 5.0 for pairing. No GPS, WiFi, or microphone.PricingThe full retail price of the TicWatch GTX is $60, but if you act fast, you can snag this watch from Amazon or the company’s website for just $54. The GTX should offer a nice alternative in the Mobvoi lineup to the likes of entry-level Fitbit and Garmin devices and at this price point, it even undercuts many of its competitors while offering better battery life.https://www.androidguys.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/TicWatch-GTX-video.mp4

Indeed, it has its own rate plans and features, but it uses cell towers from Sprint and Verizon.When it comes to buying a phone for use on Twigby there are a few options to consider. For starters, you can bring your current device to the carrier. Additionally, you can buy a universally unlocked phone for use on Twigby. Just ensure it has CDMA support. Customers can also purchase a phone directly from Twigby.While the handset selection is rather light, it’s a decent mix of entry-level and mid-range models. What follows are some of the best Android phones available at Twigby today. These aren’t the most powerful, but rather the best for particular needs.Google Pixel 3a XLAlthough it arrived in the middle of 2019, the phone is still more than adequate for a lot of users.
