Mobvoi Ticwatch E2

Is your special someone into tech and likes the idea of a smartwatch? There are a number of smartwatches out there, but one of our favorite Wear OS lineups is the TicWatch line from Mobvoi. And in celebration of Valentine’s Day, the company discounted all of its current TicWatch models.

The models on discount include the TicWatch S, E, C2, and Pro, and range from included accessories, to money off for the devices, and so on.

The TicWatch S is aimed at active people who want to be able to track their health and fitness and workouts. The device is capable of tracking swimming, running, and sleeping — and has helpful features like a heart rate monitor. The device is waterproof, durable, and has a GPS. The TicWatch E has some of the same features, including a two-day battery life and waterproof design — however, the E is focused more on a minimalistic look than a sports-focused design. Both the TicWatch S and TicWatch E will be discounted by 15 percent for Valentine’s Day, from 5:55 a.m. to 11:55 p.m. PT on February 8 — so you only have a few hours to take advantage of that deal.

Next up is the TicWatch Pro, which is Mobvoi’s flagship smartwatch. The device is aimed at offering fitness tracking in a stylish box, it comes with a beautiful leather strap and as many as 1,000 watch faces. The TicWatch Pro boasts up to five days of battery life, which means that it’s good for things like sleep tracking, too. The TicWatch Pro will be discounted from $250 to $200 from February 8 to 14.

Last but not least is the TicWatch C2, which is aimed at the fashion-conscious among us. The device comes in rose gold, black, or platinum, and also has a nice leather strap and customizable watch faces. It’s waterproof and allows for features like tap-to-pay. For Valentine’s Day, the device is discounted by 10 percent from February 8 to 14.

All four of the TicWatch models are decent smartwatches and worth considering if you have an Android device and watch a Wear OS smartwatch. If you have an iPhone, of course, the other option for you is the Apple Watch, though it is considerably more expensive than any of the TicWatch models.

Updated on February 6, 2019: A previous version of this article stated the TicWatch E2 and S2 were being discounted. Only the TicWatch E and S are.

Now is the time to pick up and wear a discounted TicWatch smartwatch
Mobvoi TicWatch C2

Mobvoi, makers of some already very well priced Wear OS smartwatches, is running a promotion that may entice even more people to pick up the best of its wearable range. Visit Mobvoi’s website, and you can get 20-percent off the usual cost of certain watches, provided you check out using PayPal. Yes, that’s a caveat, but it’s not like Mobvoi’s asking you to pay in flesh, or with magic beans.

There’s no indication how long the promotion will run, so if you’re keen we’d suggest not waiting around too long, just in case you miss out. The question then is, which Mobvoi Ticwatch model should you buy? The 20-percent discount only applies to the TicWatch C2 and the TicWatch Pro, and not the more recent TicWatch E2 and TicWatch S2 models.

How to see your frame rate on Steam Deck
Two players using Steam Decks to play Stardew Valley.

The Steam Deck might have a fancy OS that makes it easy to browse and play Steam games, but it's essentially just a standard handheld PC. That means anyone with enough tech-savvy can modify the device to their heart's content, loading different operating systems and playing games outside the Steam library without many restrictions.

One of the most requested features is the ability to see your frame rate, as this ensures your games are running properly and your handheld PC is performing as expected.

Is this cheap Android phone better than the Galaxy S24? I found out
The back of the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus.

Before I put my SIM card in the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus, I had seen several reports and YouTube videos claiming it would be a great purchase if you didn’t want to buy an expensive smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S24 or even the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. Wow, I thought: It must be really special. While it's not especially cheap, the latest Redmi phone does look like a good value, at least on paper.

Well, it is quite good, but there’s absolutely no reason to buy it if you can stretch to a more expensive phone. Although it hasn’t been any trouble, I’m itching to switch to a different phone, and it’s one that costs exactly the same amount of money to buy. The reason why isn't to do with the specs as such but to do with life with the phone.
It's not all about the numbers
