Mobvoi today announced an updated version of an antique watch, the TicWatch C2 +. This replaces the original C2 with a noticeable change: it has more RAM.
The TicWatch C2 + really doesn’t differ from the C2 outside of that, with its 42.8mm case, stainless steel case, Snapdragon Wear 2100, 1.3 ″ AMOLED display, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, WiFi, NFC, 400 mAh battery, rating IP68 and design. It is one of the prettiest Wear OS watches, that’s for sure.
With that 1GB RAM, performance on the C2 + should be improved considerably compared to the original. Over the past year or two, it became painfully obvious that Wear OS can’t perform well without so much RAM, and that 512MB watches tend to struggle with everyday tasks far more often.
However, you may think the Wear 2100 chip here is a disappointment, and that’s fair. I’ll just remind you that the Wear 3100 is exactly the same as the 2100, it only has a separate coprocessor to handle low power functions. When it comes to overall performance, the 2100 and 3100 are the same. If you like this watch, I wouldn’t worry too much about the processor, and instead pay attention to RAM.
At $ 209, this is a decently priced Wear OS watch. It is available today on Amazon and Mobvoi in rose gold, onyx, and platinum.
