5 tips to increase the battery life on your Android smartwatch

If you own an Android Wear smartwatch, you probably already know that the battery in these smart bracelets barely lasts a full day. This is especially the case if you use your watch all the time. So here are some tips and tricks you can try to increase the battery life of your favorite accessory.

I would like to try playing games with a TV box.

1. Block/manage app notifications

Notifications deplete your smartwatch battery. Although some are essential for you to get the full experience out of a connected watch, some apps may overload you with notifications, which then become quite intrusive. Fortunately, Android Wear offers a simple solution to help you manage notifications. The “Block app notifications” manager will allow you to add and/or delete apps, thus blocking notifications from them

To manage authorized or unauthorized apps, simply:

  • Launch the “Android Wear” app on your smartphone
  • Click on the settings at the top right, next to the three small dots
  • Open the option “Block app notifications”.

2. Disable the automatic brightness setting

As with all other mobile operating systems, you have the option to automatically manage the brightness of the screen according to the environment you’re in. Aside from this feature not being particularly useful for everyone, this option is a huge power consumer since it constantly tests the surrounding environment and adjusts the brightness of the screen accordingly.

To disable automatic brightness, simply:

  • Enter the app menu
  • Open the watch settings
  • Then go to “Adjust Brightness”.

From here, you can choose the brightness intensity of the screen (between several levels – from 1 to 5), but we advise you to disable the “Auto” option. If you’re in a darker environment, you can quickly lower the brightness of the screen from the notification bar. To access this, pull the top panel down and scroll the screen twice to the right. It’s also worth noting that the Wear Mini Launcher app does the job very well. And it’s available for free on Google Play.

3. Enable cinema mode

As the name suggests, cinema mode stops the watch from disturbing you. The smartwatch goes into a semi-hibernation mode that turns the screen off and can only be switched on again using the power button. Once woken up, cinema mode automatically deactivates.

To activate it, simply:

  • Pull the panel from the top down
  • Click on the watch icon.

Since the watch remains off during this period of hibernation, your watch’s battery life will last longer. This is useful if you’re going to the cinema (as the name indicates), or even during a meeting or if you don’t want to be alerted by your watch every 30 seconds. Try it and let us know what you think.

4. Limit connectivity

Limiting Wi-Fi, NFC or location services also saves battery life. Simply speaking, this will allow you to moderate the watch’s time-consuming search for a network each time it seeks a connection.

To disable this option, simply:

  • Enter the app menu
  • Open the watch settings
  • Click on the connectivity menu.

5. Disable wrist gestures

Disabling wrist gestures can also help increase the battery life of the smartwatch. “Wrist gestures ” allow you to scroll through Google Now cards. To do this, the function in question will query the motion sensor (as you’d expect), which requires power and therefore battery.

To disable this option, you can proceed in the same way as mentioned above:

  • Pull the right drawer on the watch
  • Open the watch settings
  • Then go down to “wrist gestures ” to turn it off

Observe the effects

For those who really want to compare what each option consumes, you can also manage the power consumption in more detail from the Android Wear app installed on the smartphone.

To do this, simply:

  • Launch the “Android Wear” app on your smartphone
  • Click on the setting at the top right, next to the three small dots
  • Open the menu with the name of the watch
  • Navigate to the “Watch battery” option

Give it a second to load then you’ll get a detailed view of the power consumption of your watch. Beneath this option, you can also see the remaining storage space in the watch. This is rather useful, especially if you like to store music or any compatible/usable content locally on the watch.

Mobvoi Ticwatch S and E review: What more could you want from a smartwatch?

Mobvoi recently presented a new pair of watches, this time equipped with the most common Android Wear, and with a competitive price. Is it worth getting one? We’ve tested them out, so here is our review of the most talked about smartwatch right now!

Good

  • Competitive price
  • Excellent Display
  • GPS (Ticwatch S)
  • Nice design
  • Android Wear 2.0 with all functions
  • Decent battery life
  • Speaker for calls

Bad

  • Bulky on small wrists
  • Low quality materials (ticwatch E)
  • Straps not interchangeable (ticwatch S)
  • Hardware button badly positioned

Release date and price

Both watches are available to purchase on the official Mobvoi website at a price of $ 199.99 and $ 159.99 for the ticwatch S and ticwatch E. A 20% discount code is also available if you buy it here.

Ticwatch S (S stands for Sport) is available in Knight (black) Aurora (Yellow) and Glacier (white). All three versions have a black ring with numbers printed in the yellow color, same as the Aurora verson.

Ticwatch E (E stands for Express) is available in the same colours but with different names: Shadow, Ice and Lemon. On Ticwatch E you don’t have the numbered ring, but on the other hand you can change the strap, which is not possible on the sports model, as it has GPS antennas inside the rubber bands.

For this review, we received the Tickwatch S in ‘Aurora’ and Ticwatch E in Ice colour.

Design and build quality

Ticwatch Express has a classic and simple design. In the Ice colour I received, the 44 mm case (and 13.5 mm thick) is made entirely of transparent glossy plastic that surrounds a second layer of white plastic. Visually, it looks great, but you can immediately feel that the material may not be very resistant and is somewhat reminiscent of some of the cheaper Smartwatch models from the early ’90s.

The bracelet itself seemed fragile, but at the end of the testing there was no damage or signs of wear, so I could be wrong. The strap is made of rubber with an almost velvety finish, which makes it easy to fasten and does not move or feel uncomfortable once on the wrist.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8154 Simple and classic design of the Mobvoi Smartwatch / © AndroidPIT

The Ticwatch Sport differs in terms of the overall size, which is up to 45 mm. At the same time, it is slightly thinner at 13 mm, however, both watches are quite bulky. Around the display there is a fixed numbered ring nut, which I thought looked great.

Both the case and strap are highlighted in yellow with a matt finish in the Aurora version. After only a week, there was already a difference in colour between the plastic case and the rubber strap that began to darken. So overtime, you can expect to see the wear and tear.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8136 Scratches and dirt can be seen on this color / © AndroidPIT

All in all, the design and construction of the two smartwatches is not so bad and given the reduced cost I certainly didn’t expect more valuable materials. I want to emphasize the fact that I’m absolutely not disappointed by the quality of smartwatches, just don’t expect the quality level of a Gear Sport or Gear S3.

One unusual feature on both Ticwatches, is that the button is located on the wrong side of the watch, I don’t think this a terrible thing, but it might be irritating for some as you will have to place your wrist in a slightly uncomfortable position, covering the display with your hand. I would say the Ticwatch E is the best in this instance, as the button is more accessible and handles better overall.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8139 The button located on the left / © AndroidPIT

The Ticwatch S weighs 45.5g and the Ticwatch E stops at 41.5g; both are protected from splash water with IP67 certification.

Display

The display of the two smartwatches is 1.4 inches with a resolution of 400×400 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 287 ppi. Not bad for cheap smartwatches. Not only that, the technology used is OLED, which guarantees absolute blacks and almost zero consumption of the Always-on display that will not affect the battery much if used. The viewing angles are also excellent; you don’t have to rotate your wrist completely towards you to view the screen

Both watches feature a scratch-resistant protective glass. I used the smartwatches during many day-to-day things (maintenance of PCs, moving furniture, washing dishes) and despite some small knocks on the glass, both came out unscathed.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8127 The displays are bright / © AndroidPIT

The visibility in the sun is very good especially when compared to some LCD displays of the competition. In the dark, brightness is not disturbing. The only complaint I have about the display is that neither of the two watches has an automatic brightness sensor (unlike the Moto 360).

During the test the touch screen has always reacted very well to the controls even with the screen slightly wet, which was a pleasant surprise.

Software

Android Wear is certainly not a novelty and Google is not introducing many new features to the platform after its advancement to version 2.0. Despite Google’s lack of functionality updates, the Ticwatches feature Android 7.1.1 with October’s security patches and will apparently be updated in Oreo.

Since i’ve had then, I already received two different OTA updates on both watches, which shows the company’s interest in supporting the product (other more famous companies seemed to have abandoned their products).

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8083 Both use Android Wear 2.0 and will be upgraded to Oreo / © AndroidPIT

Mobvoi’s only software additions are for step counter, heartbeat detector and charts for monitoring activities during a day. These functions can be deactivated if you use Google Fit like me. The addition of the company’s specific dials specifically designed for the two watch models, which perfectly match the colours of the bracelets and case.

Performance

Ticwatch Express and Sport share the same internal hardware. The only difference is that the S version has GPS. Both have a dual-core Mediatek MT2601 dual-core CPU with a frequency of 1.2GHz. Normally I’m not satisfied with the operation of the SoC Mediatek, but this time I changed my mind: the chip responded well and provided smooth performance consistently.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8144 The heart rate monitor (only on the Express version) / © AndroidPIT

The RAM is 512MB and the internal memory is 4GB for apps and music to listen with Bluetooth headphones. In more expensive models the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, proximity sensor and optical heart rate reader for hardware equipment functions at the same level. Of course, heart rate monitor readings are generally not accurate and therefore you should take those readings with a pinch of salt. Another feature includes a vibration motor for. There is also a vibration motor for notifications.

To connect to the smartphone, the two watches use Bluetooth 4.1 BLE and can connect to the internet for receiving notifications and updates also via WIFI antenna 802.11 b/g/n.

Audio

Both watches are equipped with microphones and speakers. You’ll not only be able to give commands to Google Assistant but you’ll also be able to answer and make calls directly from your wrist.

The microphones work well, they are fast to respond and Google Assistant works just like any other platform. Speakers have enough volume to make a call in low noise situations such as driving, but the sound quality is not high. I would not recommend using it in a crowded place as you won’t be able to hear the conversation, and of course people could eavesdrop on your conversation!

Another great feature, is that you can download music with Google Play Music for listening via bluetooth heaphones. This could be useful if you go running while leaving your smartphone in the car or at home.

Battery

Mobvoi’s two smartwatches are powered by a 300mAh battery that has proven to be more than enough in everyday use.

Don’t be afraid to use Google Assistant or respond to notifications via voice commands, the battery will definitely support you for a full day. In most cases even two days can be easily reached with normal use. Using the GPS of the Ticwatch S, the hours of use drop significantly but you will probably be able to reach your destination before the battery runs out!

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8143 The charging cable / © AndroidPIT

Charging is done by a magnetic connector. Unfortunately, if you break this cable, you cannot purchase spare parts. In addition, the magnets that connect it are not that strong and therefore disconnect if badly positioned. During the testing I wanted to charge one of the smartwatches overnight and woke up to find a low battery.

Final verdict

Mobvoi has certainly proved to have learned from its past experiences with his Ticwatch and Ticwatch 2. After experimenting with various software, the company decided to rely on the most popular Android Wear and embrace an ecosystem already appreciated by developers.

Even without the discount code, Ticwatch S and Ticwatch E are the champions of quality/price ratio and as the first smartwatch are more than recommended. Don’t expect elegant and luxurious devices, but they are more than suitable for young people and sportsmen. In their price range, they are the best buy.

AndroidPIT ticwatch e ticwatch s smartwatch android wear wearables 8159 You wont be disappointed with either of these Smartwatches / © AndroidPIT

If you are looking for your first smartwatch, a device to be used for day-to-day activities, sports, or just an accessory to accompany your smartphone, then I would really recommend Ticwatch Express and Ticwatch Sport.

We only hope that the company, like many other startups of the past, does not stop the software support.

Do you need a smart band or a smartwatch?

The world of wearable devices is vast and complicated: there are all types, sizes, colors and prices. I’m most often asked about the difference between smart bands and smartwatches, and which is better. In this article, I’ll explain the differences to help you decide which is right for your needs.

Jump to section:

What are smart bands?

Connected bracelets or smart bracelets are called smart bands. In most cases, they have a simple form and their main function is to track and analyze your movements during the day. That’s why, most smart bands have a pedometer, and sometimes also an optical heart rate sensor and various other sensors.

Smart bands are closer to the concept of a bracelet than a watch, but there are some smart bands with displays that can tell you the time and various other useful tidbits of information.

What are smartwatches?

Smartwatches are like regular watches, but with smart features. Their shape is close to that of a normal watch and usually these devices are paired with a smartphone to perform their main functions.

Smartwatches, in principle, all have a display that simulates the dial of a real clock, analog or digital. Thanks to the display, many other features are made possible, like reading notifications, interacting with them, using the apps installed on the smartwatch itself or choosing an alternate watch face that fits our style. There are also hybrid smartwatches with real hands and some limited smart functionality.

AndroidPIT huawei watch philips hue 5814 With some smartwatches you can answer calls from your wrist. / © AndroidPIT

Which should you choose?

The choice between a smart band and a smartwatch is personal, but there are some things you should keep in mind when deciding which fits your needs best. First, you should ask yourself if you want to be able to read the time on your wrist. If the answer is yes, don’t rule out smart bands entirely, because some can display time. Second, you should determine whether or not you’re interested in monitoring your heart rate. If the answer is yes, you still don’t have to rule out smart bands, as some like the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 have this feature.

Another question to ask yourself is if you want to use the wearable every day, or only when you are doing physical activity? Not only that, the last thing to consider is perhaps the most important of all: do you want to be able to interact with notifications?

samsung gear sport app drawer Smartphones have a more complex operating system with many more features. / © AndroidPIT

The answers to those last two questions are the ones that move the needle from one category to the other. Smartwatches can inform you that a notification has arrived, and you can even interact with them by replying with quick responses or your voice. In addition, smartwatches have a more traditional design so they can fit in everyday situations, elegant dinners or work meetings.

On the other hand, smart bands are more conspicuous and sometimes brightly colored, though it depends on the model. Smart bands tend to have better battery life due to either having no display or just a small one, and no apps or notifications to sync. One of the few exceptions to this is the Gear Fit2 Pro, a smart band with a beautiful display and many apps available.

AndroidPIT Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro 3 The Gear Fit2 Pro is a smart band but has many smartwatch functions. / © AndroidPIT

As you can surmise, the line between smartwatches and smart bands can be blurred at times and there are a few products that straddle the fence between the two categories. There are a lot of great devices out there, and now that you know what to keep in mind, I’ll leave you with our guides to the best smartwatches and smart bands available:

Best of luck choosing your next wearable! If you have any questions for us or tips to share with other readers, feel free to leave us a comment.

Fitbit Ionic review: The sporty smartwatch

Fitbit, undisputed star of fitness trackers, has decided to step out of its comfort zone. For the first time, the US manufacturer wants to compete with the Apple Watch and Android Wear smartwatches. The Fitbit Ionic is the first smartwatch from the company able to take advantage of apps developed by third parties. After several weeks of testing, here are my impressions.

Good

  • Battery life
  • Built-in GPS
  • Fitbit app
  • Heart rate monitoring

Bad

  • Price
  • OS can be a bit slow
  • Replying to notifications not possible
  • Limited swimming features

Release date and price

Made official at IFA 2017, the Fitbit Ionic is available for $ 299. Fitbit’s connected smartwatch comes in three colors: Blue Gray/Silver Gray, Slate Blue/Burnt Orange and Charcoal/Smoke Gray.

Fitbit Ionic

Design and build quality

As far as I can tell, the Fitbit Ionic is not the best looking smartwatch on the market. The Ionic follows the tradition of the Blaze with its square dial. In everyday life, it goes rather unnoticed, so it should be fine for a wide range of people. However, those concerned with fashion will opt for another model, since the Ionic is missing a bit of sex appeal due to its rather thick borders around the dial. The watch is comfortable to wear and is easily forgotten despite its weight of 46 grams. 

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3508 The Ionic retains the square style of the Blaze. © AndroidPIT

On the technical side, the Ionic’s casing is made of Series 6000 aluminum, an alloy of magnesium and silicon identical to the iPhone 6, which showed signs of weakness soon after its launch. Apple has opted for aluminum 7000 series for its iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 because it contains zinc, which guarantees more strength. I remain, for example, quite pessimistic about the Fitbit Ionic resistance to scratching. Regarding the build quality and finish, however, everything looks and feels right.

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3533 On the back, you’ll find the optical heart rate sensor. © AndroidPIT

The strap supplied in the box is made of silicone. For sports, it’s very practical. Its fastening system (a buckle and an attachment button) is invaluable to avoid any risk of loss. It is sometimes a little difficult to wrap around the wrist, the loop being so tight that the piece of elastomer on the bracelet has difficulty fastening. Fortunately, silicone seems to be able to withstand the test of time (and perspiration). Of course, the strap is proprietary so you’ll have to go through the Fitbit store to get new ones (including leather). The changing the strap is, fortunately, very easy.

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3506 The bracelet will not come loose during your activities. © AndroidPIT

In the middle, of course, is the 1.4-inch screen of the Fitbit Ionic. There are three buttons on the sides (two on the right edge, one on the left edge). The one on the left is a back button, while the buttons on the right are for navigation. The top button displays the stats of your day, and the second is dedicated to kicking off exercise sessions. On the back, there is an optical heart rate sensor. I will return to the topic of its effectiveness later. The watch is waterproof, so swimming with it is definitely possible.

Display

The Fitbit Ionic features a 1.42-inch LCD touch screen, with a resolution of 348 x 250 pixels and a pixel density of 302 pixels per inch. Just like the Gear Fit2 Pro we tested recently, the watch is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 for extra durability.

Compared to Samsung’s smart fitness band, the display of the Ionic does not offer as much contrast, but the watch’s display is still very good. The Fitbit Ionic features bright colors and high brightness (1000 nits like the Apple Watch 2). The readability is very good, and the Fitbit Ionic is a perfect companion for any type of sporting activity. I was pleasantly surprised by its usability underwater, especially in terms of readability.

As for responsiveness, it’s not bad. However, the screen is sometimes a bit slow to respond and you have to make an effort to move your wrist enough to wake the screen. This is annoying from time to time when you are doing an activity and want to know information quickly.

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3487 The screen is one of the best aspects of the device. © AndroidPIT

Special features

Fitness features

In addition to its smartwatch capabilities, the Fitbit Ionic is of course a perfect tool for tracking your sports activities. All the fitness features we know and love from other Fitbit products can be found here:

  • Pedometer: The Ionic translates motion sensor data to count your steps. Active days will result in a large number of steps, and inactive days, a small number. As always with Fitbit, the result is rather optimistic.
  • Sleep monitoring: The watch automatically detects the hours between when the user falls asleep and wakes up. The app also tells you about your sleep cycles: in-between, light, deep. Personally, I appreciated this information since it allows me to predict fatigue. You just have to get used to sleeping while wearing this watch all the time, which could be painful or uncomfortable for some people.
  • Nutritional monitoring: It’s possible to manually monitor your diet in the app. However, you must always enter the information about your meals yourself, which requires a certain commitment.
  • Caloric expenditure
  • Activity tracking: running, cycling, swimming, treadmill, bodybuilding, etc.

Although I still had some initial apprehension during my underwater sessions, the Fitbit Ionic has been able to withstand swimming. Sometimes the results can be distorted when counting distance for laps in the pool.

Fitbit Coach

If Fitbit presents its smartwatch as a fitness coaching watch. Through videos shown on the watch, you’ll be guided through workouts. For the moment, only three videos are available. More free videos should arrive later. The idea seems good, but sometimes it’s difficult to follow the video on your wrist and move at the same time. Maybe a speaker would have helped here.

Fitbit also offers other custom exercises in the Fitbit Coach app. This is actually a new version of the Fitstar app, from a company bought by Fitbit. Custom exercises will be suggested to you, but there’s a $ 39 annual subscription fee. These custom workouts will show you exactly what to do. Each exercise, you can leave comments to better adjust your workouts. The goal here is to help you improve and encourage you to try different types of exercises.

Software

The Fitbit Ionic runs on the manufacturer’s own OS, Fitbit OS. Despite the marketing promises of the brand, I admit to being disappointed with the possibilities offered by the watch. If the purchase of Pebble for $ 40 million foreshadowed good things, its integration still leaves something to be desired. For the first time in its history, Fitbit offers a development kit (SDK) for third party developers to create their own apps for the watch. For the moment, though, the Fitbit App Gallery catalog is relatively empty. Apart from a few partner apps that are very strong (Strava, Starbucks and Pandora to name a few), there’s not many other satisfying options. Fans of Spotify will, for example, have to transfer their songs to the 2.5 GB internal memory of the watch. It doesn’t need to be so complicated.

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3487 The interface is simple and intuitive, but it can be slow sometimes. © AndroidPIT

Unable to respond to notifications

Fitbit OS allows you to receive notifications on your Ionic (calls, messages, social networking). The problem is that you don’t have the opportunity to respond, which creates a great sense of frustration. It is only possible to clear the notifications, one by one or all at once. Why, Fitbit? The watch doesn’t have a microphone or suggest replies.

Fitbit app

As always, the Fitbit app is one of the best features. It’s always so intuitive and fun to use. The app displays the essential information on the home page as blocks which you can rearrange as you wish. You can easily find all activities completed and you can challenge your friends. It is compatible with a large number of third-party services (Alexa, IFTT, MyFitness Pal and more).

There’s nothing to say about the synchronization between the smartwatch and the app. It’s quick and painless. The only problem I encountered was during the initial configuration, since it took more than two hours to download and install the mandatory update to use the device.

androidpit fitbit app The Fitbit app is one of the great strengths of the Ionic. © AndroidPIT

Performance

As far as tech specs go, the Fitbit Ionic has 2.5 GB of internal storage, which can be used to store your music for example. There’s an NFC chip for payments, a GPS, an optical heart rate sensor, a gyroscope, a barometer and an accelerometer to measure all of your physical activities.

In general, the performance is good and the resource management seems to be under control. However, as explained above, I’ve experienced some delays, though I’m not sure whether it’s because of the processor or the system itself. 

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3499 Thanks to the GPS, you can check the weather. © AndroidPIT

GPS and heart rate monitoring

The GPS performed well and the distances proved to be accurate and consistent with what my smartphone recorded. Regarding the optical heart rate sensor, I found the results slightly higher than reality, even though Fitbit explained that its new algorithms made the measurement more accurate. While the results are more stable, the recordings still seems a little high. If your wrists are heavily involved in your sporting activities, the heart rate results are basically useless. Of course, as for other fitness trackers, we must remain cautious about the information received since these are always estimates. Once again, I encourage you to read the article written by my colleague Stefan on the topic:

Battery

If you’re looking for a long lasting smartwatch, the Fitbit Ionic will delight you, as battery life is one of the areas in which the watch excels. As promised by the manufacturer, the Ionic is able to hold out for nearly 4 days before showing severe signs of fatigue and requiring recharging. Rest assured, there is no need to disable the cardio sensor or limit the brightness to achieve such a result. It’s a different story if you use the GPS a lot, as the range is greatly reduced. But there is nothing surprising about that.

It is difficult to competing smartwatches that are doing better in this area. The only negative point is the method of charging itself. As always, Fitbit offers a proprietary cable, so you’ll want to take care not to lose it as it’s a pain to replace. Fitbit offers only the charging cable and not the charger in its box. Given the price of the watch, we were entitled to at least that.

AndroidPIT fitbit ionic 3555 The charging system is convenient (similar to Apple’s Magsafe) but it’s still a proprietary format. © AndroidPIT

Final verdict

Was Fitbit’s bet on the coaching watch successful? Not really, in my opinion. As a smartwatch, it’s a little too limited. The system isn’t very mature (it’s not possible to reply to notifications!), and it lacks apps. The design is a bit too simple to really win me over.

Nevertheless, the Fitbit Ionic isn’t a bad product. The watch is an ideal companion for sport tracking and it benefits from the brand’s experience in this field. As ever, the Fitbit app is a great strength. You can use the device for many activities (running, swimming, bodybuilding) and its battery life is fantastic. But in the end, the price seems a bit too high for an activity tracker, and it’s not advanced enough for a smartwatch when you compare it to the competition (Samsung Gear S3, Apple Watch and others).
