More About TicWatch E2 and TicWatch S2
One of the greatest editions to TicWatch, in my opinion, is running off of Google’s Wear OS. I have used Samsung’s Gear S3 and while I like that watch, I would prefer it run Wear OS vs Samsung’s own software.
“TicWatch E2 and TicWatch S2 are designed for those with really active lifestyles”, explained Zhifei Li, CEO and co-founder of Mobvoi. “These second-generation smartwatches help you stay connected and track your health and fitness data while you’re on the move. Whether that’s in a pool, at the gym, in the office or on the road, these TicWatches will move you.”
“Furthermore, our strategic collaborations with partners like Qualcomm result in smartwatches like you’re seeing here at CES, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We look forward to working closely with our partners to bring more game-changing innovation to the industry”, continued Li.

TicWatch E2 and TicWatch S2, along with TicWatch C2 and TicWatch Pro, combine the capabilities of the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear platform with the product and system expertise of Mobvoi, bringing new choices to the increasingly discerning consumer.”
