Wrist watches are very important accessories that helps you to know the time when on the go.
The TicWatch C2 is not just a Wristwatch that tells time, but it is a smartphone that can even tell you the weather of your city. This smart watch offers so much that it is almost too good to be true. The TicWatch C2 is a stripped down, more traditionally-style smartwatch, designed for those who want all the standard mod-cons in a stylish, contemporary package.
Pitched as a perfect blend of sleek, premium style and an elite smartwatch with all the best Wear OS features, the TicWatch C2 certainly achieves the former thanks to its stainless steel finish and unfussy design.
The C2 comes in three color options: black, platinum, and rose gold. While the silver and black models are identical aside from the finish, the rose gold variant sports a curvier look with rounded physical buttons, softer edges, and brings the display almost flush with the surrounding bezel.
The rose gold version is also thinner than the black and platinum models, coming in at just 12.8mm thick. Mobvoi says the rose gold model is built for slimmer wrists.
The physical buttons sit on the right side of the watch, with a microphone in between for Google Assistant voice commands. You’ll have to live with verbal responses coming only from your phone, as unlike the TicWatch Pro, the C2 doesn’t have a speaker. That also means taking calls is off the table.
The screen on the C2 is on the smaller side but it’s wholly usable. The 1.3-inch fully circular AMOLED panel Mobvoi has used may be unremarkable but it’s certainly up to the task of ensuring a reliably pleasing viewing experience.
The 360 x 360 resolution offers a crisp 392ppi, which only breaks down when small fonts on certain watch faces are involved. It offers attractively rich colours and contrast, with the AMOLED tech also ensuring greater power efficiency.
Mobvoi promises between one and two days of usage per charge out of the 400mAh battery and that seems like a fairly accurate claim.
The TicWatch C2 is running the latest Wear OS by Google and this provided a good experience for us. Apps loaded up within a second or two and everything else felt slick with easy-to-understand gestures and a super responsive touchscreen.
Everything you’d expect from the latest Wear OS is baked in, including heart rate tracking, music playback, notifications that allowed us to view a good chunk of the app notification or message in question, and newly-added Google Pay.

The TicWatch C2 is an affordable and very attractive blend of functionality and design. The device goes perfectly with almost all outfit. This smartphone is available on online stores.
