Smartwatches are not quite the product category that some thought (or hoped) would be, but it has not stopped some companies from continuing to expand and improve their offerings. Take e.g. Mobvoi, the creators of the TicWatch line, who have just announced pricing and instant accessibility to their new TicWatch E2 and TicWatch S2.

Powered by Snapdragon Wear 2100 and Wear OS, both watches share a lot in common. They have the same sensors, GPS capabilities, batteries, water resistance rating and the recently announced TicMotion range of AI-powered fitness features. They both have a 5 ATM water resistance rating, which means that the clocks can survive under water up to 50m. There is also no NFC for use with Google Pay.

Honestly, the biggest differences between the two come to price, robustness and styling. TicWatch E2 is priced at £ 145.99 / € 159.99 / $ 159.99 USD. Meanwhile, S2 is £ 165.99 / € 179.99 / $ 179.99 USD and has a US Military Standard-810G durability rating – this watch can withstand a lot of punishment.

Both clocks are available from Mobvoi or Amazon, links to which will be below.
