At first glance, the TicWatch Pro looks like any other men’s smartwatch.
But if you look a little closer, you’ll notice one innovative feature that makes it stand out from the pack: It has two displays.
The displays serve two different purposes, and allow the watch to switch between two different modes. What’s most important to know about the technology, however, is that it allows the watch to get a whopping 30 days of battery life.
The TicWatch Pro is made by Chinese tech company Mobvoi, which is backed by the likes of Google and Volkswagen Group China. It costs $250 and is available to buy on Amazon starting Tuesday (update: it’s currently sold out).
Here’s what the TicWatch Pro can do:

The TicWatch Pro runs on Wear OS, Google’s smartwatch operating system.
That means you can download apps from the Google Play Store and handle basic smartwatch functions like messaging, email, ride-hailing, and more.
The TicWatch Pro has a few features that make it a solid fitness-tracking watch, like water resistance up to 1.5 meters, built-in GPS, and heart rate monitoring.
The TicWatch Pro can only be submerged for up to 30 minutes, so swimming with it isn’t recommended.
The TicWatch Pro can also handle music streaming and NFC payments, which means you can use Google Pay to make purchases using your watch.
