Apple Watch finds a challenger in Ticwatch

Apple Watch Faces Competition in China from Ticwatch

Ticwatch boasts almost all the features present in Apple Watch, and is expected to be priced lower than Apple’s offering.

Apple Watch has been faring pretty well in China, but that may not last for too long as a China-based startup Mobvoi has introduced a new competitor called Ticwatch.

Ticwatch isn’t as hefty as the Apple Watch as it comes with sleek design that seems lighter than Apple’s offering. It will just show the time, but if you swipe left on it, you will be taken to a menu which contains all the features. Just on the right side of Ticwatch is a surface called Tickle which can be used to navigate through the menu.

Furthermore, you can connect this watch with your phone to receive direct notifications. That’s not all. You are also allowed to listen to all of your smartphone songs on your watch, which is quite convenient.

Ticwatch doesn’t work on Android, but do note that Mobvoi is a company founded by ex-Google employees, so they know the ins and outs of the platform.

As of now, Ticwatch is in prototyping phase and is only being created for the Chinese market. However, if it turns out to be a huge success, it may make its way to other countries as well.
