As the testing for the Apple Watch Series 4 is about complete, the TicBand, an affordable fitness tracker from Mobvoi, the same company that brought us the Wear OS smartwatches Ticwatch E, Ticwatch S, and Ticwatch Pro is available and I’m eager to see how well it performs.
The TicBand is available on Amazon and other retailers. This fitness tracker offers 24/7 heart rate monitoring, step tracking, floors climbed, calories burned, active minutes, and sleep tracking.
The Ticband also calculates your cardio fitness score, similar to Fitbit. Most fitness trackers in this price range do not offer this feature. I’ll be comparing my cardio fitness score from Fitbit and see if there’s any notable difference.
As far as the looks of the Ticband, it’s your standard familiar fitness band. However, replacement bands are available for the TicBand to change up the look from day-to-day or just match your mood and style.
It uses the same app that the Ticwatch E and Ticwatch Pro uses and I’ve discovered that it’s a decent app for fitness tracking. It doesn’t have the in-depth data like Garmin has or even Samsung but it’s a step above many budget friendly fitness trackers.
An advantage the TicBand has over similarly priced competition is that it comes from a company that has a track record for producing featured packed but affordable smartwatches. It looks like this is a brand that’s going to around for years to come.
I’m expecting the TicBand to arrive tomorrow and I’ll upload photos of it then and update this post.
I’m going to try to get the review up quickly because in a few days the Fitbit Charge 3 is going to be here and I know many people are interested in it since it’s Fitbit’s most popular tracker.
And here are the first pics of the TicBand:
