Mobvoi TicWatch C2+ – A fine update for a lovely smartwatch
Mobvoi has a close cooperation with Google and supplies its watches with its operating system WearOS. Therefore, for the setup you need the App WearOS by Google, which is also available for iOS. In the app’s settings, you can change the dial and select up to five widgets, which can be accessed via swipe gestures. In addition to those from Google, Mobvoi installs its own widgets with information on heart rate, workouts and fitness. By default, the lower of the two buttons opens the daily log. Via the settings, you can assign another function or an app to it. The upper button leads to further apps and the Play Store.
If you install a music player such as Google Play Music on the TicWatch and use it to download music to the watch, the watch can play music from the smartphone or from its own memory. Since the TicWatch C2+ does not have a loudspeaker, you have to connect a headset or another audio receiver.
A microphone is provided for instructions to the Google Assistant. You can access it by a long press on the upper button or a swipe gesture to the right. A further gesture opens the Quick Panel, through which you can activate the flight or power-saving mode as well as Google Pay.
