Smartwatch maker Mobvoi has just released a very unique version of the TicWatch C2. As you may have already understood from the title it is in fact a special edition dedicated to the Forbidden City, or Forbidden City in English. We remind those who are not too keen on Chinese culture that the Forbidden City is actually an imperial palace dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties and located in the center of Beijing.
Mobvoi TicWatch Forbidden City Edition now in crowdfunding
Returning to the smartwatch, Mobvoi's TicWatch Forbidden City Edition arrives with a slightly different design than the standard version. In particular, we have two new leather straps imported from Italy and available in black and green, which is the color used for the tiles inside the imperial palace and associated with wood, therefore with growth. While the case was created with 316L stainless steel and a high-precision forging and carving process for a refined yet modern look.
Inside the case, we also find a 1,3-inch diagonal display with AMOLED technology, a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels and a screen to body ratio of 71%. As always these are high quality panels with high brightness and vibrant colors.
On the screen we will also be able to use one of the four watchfaces created specifically for the TicWatch Forbidden City Edition.
All other specifications remain unchanged from the TicWatch C2 ordinary. This means that we find a case size of 42.8mm for a weight of 53.2 grams. We then have a Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear ™ 2100 processor accompanied by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. While for connectivity there is Bluetooth at version 4.1 / BLE and WiFi at 2.4Ghz. Finally, the smartwatch integrates an NFC module, a 400mAh battery and IP68 waterproofness.
The same goes for the software side. We therefore have WearOS as an operating system, the ability to pay with a touch, AI assistant and much more.
The Mobvoi TicWatch Forbidden City Edition is in the crowdfunding campaign on the official Xiaomi Youpin website at the price of 1299 Yuan, about 166 euros.
