Mobvoi brings more sensible smartwatch prices with the TicWatch GTX

Fancy a new smartwatch? Mobvoi want your eyeballs or should I say wrists, as they’ve just made the TicWatch GTX, is available to purchase today.

It’s cheap, costing just £54.99 (€59.99 / $59.99) and comes with 14 workout modes (running cycling, yoga and swimming too – it’s IP68 water and sweat proof) plus 24/7 sleep and health monitoring.

There’s a 10 day battery life (7 in “normal use” though) and it takes a couple of hours to charge back up. You can customise the watch face by using snaps from your own phone. There’s 4 faces pre-installed and 17 others to downloaded via the Mobvoi app on your phone too.

The sleep tracking delivers proactive sleep tracking which automatically detects and tracks sleep without tapping any buttons. In addition, the health monitoring adds a comprehensive, real-time history of your heart’s health and steps taken on an hourly basis.

Notifications are supported too, so you can be notified of incoming calls and messages. There’s also the ability to control music, weather, stopwatch, timer, torchlight and more.

Alongside 4 preloaded watch faces to choose from, the TicWatch GTX allows users to personalize their smartwatch more than ever before, with the option to use photos from your mobile phone’s camera reel. An additional 17 watch faces can be downloaded from the Mobvoi app.
