Depending on the perspective, Mobvoi did a terrible or excellent job with the launch of the TicWatch Pro 5. It's been teased for at least a year, so there is definitely no element of surprise in this reveal. On the other hand, this dragged-out reveal might have built up an appetite to see how the new Wear OS smartwatch actually fares in a real-life scenario. Either way, the TicWatch Pro is here!

"It's been an honour working with some of the world's leading global technology companies like Google and Qualcomm to create this next-generation TicWatch that integrates our in-house AI-based algorithms, setting a new standard for the category," said Robert Zhang, vice president of engineering at Mobvoi.

TicWatch Pro 5's main shell is designed with "ultra-strength durability" through aerospace-grade aluminium and a "surgical-level" metal bezel, providing a lightweight feel while highly resistant to damage and corrosion.
