But, the TicWatch Pro's insane multiscreen idea is an interesting spin on how to solve the mediocre battery life on smartwatches - or turn touch screens into always-readable panels on other gadgets or appliances that need to sip power. Read on below for a full introduction to what the Ticwatch Pro smartwatch will offer you if you decide to buy it soon. The display will show you, well, essential information such as the time, date, steps taken, and your heart rate. The smartwatch turns off the Wear OS display when left alone and when you need to use the watch, it turns back on.

Over the OLED display is a transparent FSTN display which is used when you aren't actively using the watch for general tasks.

Previously announced in China, the Ticwatch Pro is now officially coming to other countries including the US, UK and Australia.

The case is made from glass fiber infused nylon, similar to what we've seen from other sports-focussed smartwatches, but has a stainless steel bezel and rear cover for added durability. It's available in black and silver. The smartwatch is available now on Amazon and Mobvoi's website for $249.99.

In all it looks to be going for a classy appearance, rather than a sporty one.

We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.' We will vehemently contest all charges. However, Trump - who initially denied knowledge of the payment - subsequently conceded that Cohen was in fact reimbursed.

The Ticwatch Pro may look like a fashion-led watch, but it comes with a heart rate monitor, Global Positioning System and step tracking skills. The device also comes with NFC which makes it suitable for cardless payment. The Google Assistant allows you to do other tasks and control other smart devices from the watch.

Battery life is likely to be far better than most rivals though, as its ability to switch to a low power screen when not in use means it should apparently get around two days of battery life from its 415mAh juice pack. An LTE version of the watch is expected down the road.

The entire experience is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. Fortunately, it is also a traditional Wear OS by Google smartwatch, so you're not exactly locked into some proprietary and isolated island (*cough* Tizen).

That's good, but no better than the likes of the Samsung Gear S3. When it reaches low battery, or when you want to, the watch can switch to Essential mode. It'll show things like your step count and the time. With the new TicWatch Pro that's launching today, you can get two, even three, days of use.
