The TicWatch GTH is an affordable smartwatch featuring an Apple Watch-like square-face design. The watch sports a 1.55-inch TFT color display encased in a metal body and 2.5D glass with an interchangeable TPU strap. One of the key highlights of the watch is skin temperature monitoring which allows users to record their surface body temperature using the built-in skin temperature sensor. This feature is only available on a very few smartwatches on the markets, such as the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Charge 4.

Other features are something you’ll find on most modern smartwatches and fitness trackers, such as 24/7 heart-rate monitoring, sleep tracking, stress management, and blood oxygen saturation measurement. Mobvoi also bundles apps like TicExercise, TicHealth, TicZen, and TicBreathe which the company says help the user improve their sleep and reduce stress levels.
