When I reviewed the TicWatch Pro 5, I found that it truly does it all. With a generous number of features, unbelievable battery life, and tons of fitness tracking perks, it's one of the best Android smartwatches going — and why it's still a daily watch for me. 

What you'll probably notice first, though, is the uniquely brilliant display. The TicWatch Pro 5 uses layered display technology, which helps extend the battery life even further. For example, Daily Mode allows you to use all of your watch's features, but you'll need to charge it every night. There's also Extended Mode, which allows you to use essential features and will only require a charge every couple of days or so.

When it comes to features and tracking, there's a lot to unpack. For starters, you'll love having voice-activated Google Assistant, mobile payments with Google Pay, built-in GPS, heart-rate monitoring, activity/sleep tracking, smartphone notifications, and more. While the design is slimmer and more lightweight than previous Pro models, it still comes in a 50mm case. This might be too large for some wrists, so that's something to think about. The price tag isn't in the value category, but if you can swing it, this is one of the best TicWatch smartwatches out there.

Lightweight design

Snapdragon Wear 4100 delivers good performance

Blood oxygen monitoring

Reasons to avoid

-
Bezel is a bit bulky
-
Mediocre battery life

Based on the price, I was hesitant about how much the Ticwatch E3 could offer. However, once I reviewed the watch, I quickly realized that it was a fantastic wearable. This is especially true if you're a budget shopper who doesn't want to spend a fortune on a smartwatch. 

You get the older Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset which still delivers amazing performance, for starters. The lightweight design will look familiar as it loosely follows what we've seen in previous TicWatch E models. You get a 1.3-inch HD display with a large bezel around the watch face. This model is compatible with 20mm interchangeable bands, and comes with IP68 water resistance that's suitable for pool swimming.

There's also a great selection of health/fitness features on the TicWatch E3. You'll have built-in GPS, activity/sleep tracking, heart-rate monitoring, blood oxygen tracking, and more. There's also a built-in mic and speaker for Google Assistant and NFC for Google Pay. You'll also have to accept the mediocre battery life, other than the love-it-or-hate-it bulky bezel. It'll typically last for two days on a single charge, but you can opt for Essential Mode. This will limit certain features to help extend battery life when necessary.

Bulky design for some

You won't find a better smartwatch for your outdoor lifestyle than the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra. Wherever you go, the Pro 3 Ultra can go too. During my review of the watch, I took it on camping trips, cutting down trees on my property, and through various workouts, and it kept going. When you combine this level of durability with unlimited tracking abilities, including proactive sport modes, swim monitoring and swim style detection, a built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, and sleep tracking, there's not a whole lot that the Pro 3 Ultra can't do.

The proactive sports modes allow you to keep going at your own pace without slowing down to mess with your watch. It's powered by TicMotion, which is Mobvoi's suite of proprietary AI algorithms. It proactively detects your motion, tracks your swim activities, and provides your fitness records without you having to press or do a thing. The dual-layer display will ensure you always have the important information visible and stretches the battery to up to 30 days in essential mode. Simply get going, and it will follow suit.

Battery life isn't great
-
More expensive than predecessor

It's not much, but the TicWatch GTH is the best entry-level TicWatch around. For starters, it costs roughly $25 at most retailers, which is an insanely cheap price for any wearable. The fitness tracker looks pretty neat and you also enjoy plenty of other perks such as heart-rate monitoring, activity tracking, SpO2 measurement, a skin temperature sensor, and more.

Although you don't enjoy fancy features such as NFC payments, the battery lasts up to 10 days which is super useful for a busybody. There's also sleep and stress tracking onboard, enabling you to get quite a bitof use out of the modest TicWatch GTH.

All of them are great, but the best TicWatch ultimately depends on your needs
