Samsung Galaxy Watch

Apple smartwatches is not just the only compatibility with iPhone. Even Samsung also get that fact that there are some people who like to use smartwatch with iPhone but they don’t want apple watches to buy because of any related reason.

At that time Samsung Galaxy Watch will surely win the race. There are many best selling smartwatches created by Samsung including Gear S3 and Gear Sport but Galaxy Watch is far improved version than any other Samsung creation.

As if we compare battery life with iPhone watches then Samsung will surely win the race because it can give you 4 days battery backup that is 4 times better than any iPhone Watch Series. Even this much battery backup is rare. Most of the high expensive watches didn’t gave 4 days battery backup.

They also include vast numbers of Apps in their store, but if we compare with most using app store like Wear OS or watchOS then they have less apps for sure.

But still they are offering many necessary apps that make every smartwatch effective to use, their fitness tracking system is highly accurate, their design and many features that make Galaxy Smart Watch best selling.

As if we talk about the look wise then Apple watch literally looks so fake as compare traditional watches but Galaxy smartwatch looks more elegant and more related with simple traditional watches.

If you wrist is medium size or even small in size, then it will look fine and adorable at the same time because of its 46mm size.

Its circular screen is just best rotating bezel make it stylish, durable and functional.

Samsung Galaxy watch takes around half a second to refresh whenever you wake up the watch.

It comes with two sizes, larger one is around 46mm and comes with silver and black color scheme. On the other side 42mm size watch comes in black or rose gold color.

If we talk about better watch from these two, then 46mm version is increabile because of large display and long time battery.

If we compare Galaxy watch and Gear S3 together then battery of galaxy watch is little better and give you more one day to experience a dreamy life. Its additional health apps are just incredible and efficient to use.


  • Display with rotating bezel
  • Better battery life
  • Water, dust and shock resistance
  • Swift performance


  • Less comfortable during exercise
  • Tracking abilities should be improved

Tickwatch Pro

If we talk about Tickwatch material quality then for your kind information it is made by solid aluminium, large or little heavy too.

If you have too small wrist then this watch little heavy and awkward for you, but if you have average wrist or even above average then Tickwatch Pro is just a premium choice for you.

Display screen is about 1.39 inch and 400 x 400. Memory is about 512 MB RAM with 4 GB storage. Give you more pleasant feel with its 415 MAH battery.

Ticwatch pro manufacturer use two materials for creating wrist band, to give you comfortable and elegant look at the same time. Leather look on the upper side and comfortable silicon look on the inner side.

Now it’s possible for wrist watch for the ventilation and provide some comfort zone to the wrist. Ticwatch have OLED display, brightview at everytime. You will find a new things on the top of the standard OLED panel, also Film Compensated Super Twisted  Nematic LCD panel. A layered display on the top for the good reason.

Essential mode typically works for protecting the battery life by applying “always-on-display”. They can show Time, Date, Steps count or Battery level.

There are two button found on the right hand side of the watch that works effectively for many purposes.

If you press top button once then App List will appear and when you press for long time then it will go for the Google assistant.

While same, lower button single press will direct you to your favourite app and by doing double press it will direct you to the Google Pay.

Otherwise you have to press and hold the lower button for Essential mode, Restart or Power off.

What I feel bad about the Tickwatch pro is its design and its Wear OS. Battery life is incredibly good, at about 2.5 days of the usage with Pro Running its “standard mode”.

  • Google assistant, Pay and Google apps.
  • Later Wear OS version
  • Affordable
  • Incredible battery life
