The Chinese company TicWris has just unveiled its new invention: a smartphone that is worn on the wrist. With (almost) all the features of a smartphone, it can be useful for those who like to travel light.
Take a smartphone, shrink it and hang it on a wrist, and you will get the TicWris Max 4G. This new invention is located between the connected watch and the smartphone. The idea, which may seem strange, is all the rage in Asia.
Indeed, despite the mockery that can be found on the Internet, this connected watch available on Android has interesting features. It is equipped with a 3 GB quad-core processor (against 2 GB for the iPhone 7), 32 GB of on-board storage, a 2880 mAh battery and an 8 megapixel camera which also serves as facial recognition. .
To top it off, it works under Android 7.1.1, has built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and can even tell the time on its 2.86-inch 640 × 480 pixel screen. And you can also make phone calls without the need for a separate device. You can use most communication applications like Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.
As heavy as a smartphone
Obviously, due to its size, it should be noted that it does not have a microSD card slot, nor an NFC or USB port to facilitate file transfer and loading. At 153 g, the TicWris Max is as heavy as a smartphone, which could tire the wrist for a day.
This product, which has just been released in mainland China and will take at least a month to arrive in the United States, the United Kingdom and France (and potentially more). At least if the epidemic does not block exports.
Available on the Gearbest sales platform starting at $ 149.99. With its specific features, its 4G connection and its IP67 tightness, it can be a good traveling companion for those who wish to travel light.
