Mobvoi teases the Ticwatch E2 - a waterproof smartwatch?

by in News .


The Ticwatch E2 is official after Mobvoi posted a teaser image on their website. The E2 is rumoured to be the replacement for the Ticwatch E.

The teaser image gives us nothing to go on in terms of specification, but it depicts a smartwatch that’s been thrown into water along with the words ‘water is now a friend of your watch.’ We can surmise from this that the Ticwatch E2 will be waterproof, but just how waterproof? We expect it’ll have an IP68 rating or better.

IP68 means a device is rated as "dust tight" and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water. Another option Mobvoi has is to ditch the confusing IP system altogether and opt for the standard depth rating system watch manufacturers use. A 50m water resistance rating means a watch is suitable for swimming.

Specification wise, we expect Mobvoi will stick with the display found in the Ticwatch E which is one of the best on the market. It’s a 400 x 400 1.4-inch OLED. We also expect a polycarbonate case, in-keeping with the Ticwatch E.

Something that might be upgraded is the processor. Qualcomm launched their next-generation smartwatch chip this month. The Snapdragon Wear 3100 uses 20% less energy than the 2100 CPU found in the Ticwatch E. It’d be nice for Mobvoi to upgrade to the newer chip for the sake of future proofing and battery life.
 

Pricing and availability


Mobvoi haven’t released any availability information for the new Ticwatch E2. They’re keeping their cards very close to their chests. We expect an announcement to happen in the next month, and a price of under $200. This is an educated guess since the Ticwatch E went on sale at $159 at launch. A similar price would be great.
