Mobvoi is the company behind the Ticwatch and Ticwear OS which powered the watch. Now Mobvoi is back on Kickstarter with two new Ticwatches, the Ticwatch S and E. This time around Mobvoi is bringing Google’s Android Wear OS to the watches. Like any other Wear watch, the Ticwatches will incorporate Google Assistant, Google Fit and you’ll have the full Google Play store available. The new Ticwatch lineup will also have GPS built-in for you fitness buffs and music controls as well. Mobvoi has acknowledged they’ve taken a ton of feedback, not always positive, and used it to improve.
In 2016, we launched our first Kickstarter campaign introducing the Ticwatch 2. We were proud to have had the support and encouragement of almost 10,000 backers. And as promised during that campaign, we were able to ship rewards within 3 months of the close of the campaign. Your feedback has been invaluable, and we are determined to listen and grow with our community. Below is the feedback we have gathered from you, along with our responses to them.
Kickstarter early bird pricing starts at $119USD, which is a pretty great deal for an Android Wear 2.0 watch. The Kickstarter is fully funded already and once that has closed, the watches will be available on their website as well. Mobvoi is also pushing some new headphones in this Kickstarter, the Ticpods. These are wireless headphones with what looks like a nice wrap around ear style. They’re supposed to get 6-hours of music, 6-hours of phone calls, or 120-hours of standby time and they’re priced at $25USD on Kickstarter only.
