When Mobvoi decided to put the TicWatch GTH into circulation, they moved away from their Wear OS devices and created their own operating system. We reviewed the watch’s features and to be honest, we were pleasantly surprised!
How Well is the TicWatch GTH Designed?
If you are a fan of Mobvoi’s smartwatches, the TicWatch GTH is a direct upgrade from the previous TicWatch GTX. However, in terms of design, the new version is square and slim rather than round, and at first glance, it looks like an Apple Watch.
The watch has a 1.55inch, full-color display, and the bezel navigates through information hassle-free. The watch comes with a silicone band and an easy-to-use buckle fastener. The strap, however, is only available in black and is one-size-fits-all.
What Features Come as Standard with the TicWatch GTH?
This is a budget watch so it’s important not to expect too much when it comes to the smartwatch features. However, you can download third-party apps to personalize the watch.
One great feature is the ability to control the music via the watch, which is useful when working out. You can also get all your notifications to your wrist, however, they do not scroll.

Health, Fitness, and Wellbeing Tracking
There’s a ton of health and fitness features, including a sleep tracker, skin temperature gauge, and Sp02 monitor. All of these features are in demand and Mobvoi‘s decision to add them to the watch means that you can expect a high-performing watch.
There is a vast catalog of exercises to choose from when you want to track your workout. Utilizing the watch as a fitness tracker grants you access to data such as calories burned, time active, and heart rate. Unfortunately, there is no GPS with this watch, and so you will need to connect it to your phone.
How Good is the Battery?
If you want a device with decent battery life, then the TicWatch GTH may work for you. It offers u to ten days of usage if you optimize what you have on and what you are accessing. In testing, the battery lasted anywhere between two and eight days, so you’ll get more than 24 hours of charge.
When it comes to charging the device, you simply plug it into the back of the watch and connect it to a power source for around an hour. Plus, with a USB charger option, you can pop your charging wire into your bag and take it anywhere with you.
Should I Buy a TicWatch GTH?
The TicWatch GTH is a budget watch that offers additional features useful for when you want to focus on health.
The display is excellent, and the battery life is pretty good, especially when you consider the low price tag. However, there are not many smartwatch features that come with this device, and so you will find yourself depending on third-party apps to avoid frustration. Ultimately, if you are looking for a simple and cost-effective watch, then it may be a great choice.
