Mobvoi Ticwatch E and S smartwatches are getting Android Oreo Wear OS updates
A month later, the company backtracked on its initial statement and said that due to unexpected circumstances, the Android Oreo Wear update for these smartwatches had to be delayed to the end of April.
In early May, Mobvoi finally confirmed that, while it doesn't have a fixed date, the Android Oreo Wear rollout should kick off in a few days. Mobvoi is rolling out the update in batches as follows:
- 10%: 11th May 2018
- 50%: 14th May 2018
- 100%: 16th May 2018
Last but not least, Mobvoi listed some of the main changes included in the Android Oreo Wear update that the Ticwatch E and Ticwatch S smartwatches are getting right now. You can find them all below, but others, smaller ones, may be implemented as well:
- Notification vibration strength setting
- Touch lock option for wet conditions
- Support for 7 new countries/languages
- Notification Channels
- Battery saving background limits
Both Ticwatch smartwatches are compatible with Android and iOS devices and come with Google Assistant pre-installed. The Ticwatch E is available for purchase for $157, while the Ticwatch S is priced to sell for $200 at Amazon.
