A watch should look like a watch. We forged Ticwatch 2 in collaboration with world class designers, including award-winning Scandinavian designer, Mika Nenonen. Our relentless dedication toward the perfection of every detail has allowed us to successfully combine both functionality and fashion.

Invisible Tickle

Tickle, inherited from Ticwatch first generation's signature design, co-designed with frog , is the side touch strip that allows users to control screens, slide app menus, zoom in and out, and control volume.

The Ticwatch 2 built on this foundation to further improve material and sensor integration. We are proud to announce the Ticwatch 2 Tickle, invisible, with a smoother touch experience.

Our Team

Our team, small but full-stack, comprises of AI researchers, software developers, hardware engineers, and product to market practitioners. We’ve innovated in companies like Google, Microsoft, Nokia, and hail from prestigious universities around the globe (Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge, MIT, Tsinghua, and more).

Though diverse in background, our team is unified in our vision: to bring the delight in “AI inside” to users around the world!

Building in-house, AI empowered, software and hardware is not easy, especially in such a category as new as wearables, but we know this is the only way we'll be able to deliver true innovations powered by AI technologies.

Why Kickstarter

When we launched Ticwatch first generation for the Chinese market last year, the media immediately noticed the Ticwatch for its quality and innovation. People from all around the world began asking if we could release a full English edition. That was when we made the decision to not only make an English edition, but to bring a fully localized, English Ticwear OS, with English voice interaction, to global users.

We are tremendously grateful to the members of our global tester program, who hail from all over the world. They have helped us to transform an awesome affordable Chinese watch into a fantastic global watch. Through consistent daily contact, weekly bug fixes, and monthly iterations, we saw our watch evolve.

This is why we are here: to have the best tech tester group in the world, the Kickstarter community! Join us in putting a quality product in the hands of people around the world. Join us in making people's lives more convenient, fun, and connected.

The Fine Print

We're proud to have Ticwatch fans in over 150 countries. We will ship Ticwatch 2 worldwide where our logistic partners can ship to, with the exception of Saudi Arabia, Peru, Ecuador, Macedonia, Kosovo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, North Korea, Syria, Yemen. 

Please note that you will be responsible for any customs fees, duties, VAT, import taxes, special delivery fees administered by your government, and brokerage fees. These are not included in the cost of shipping or handling of your order, and we are unable to estimate those fees for you.

Estimated Delivery All rewards are expected to ship in September/October 2016. While we do not expect any changes in delivery dates, there is still a possibility. This is the first Ticwatch Global Edition, we are prepared to ship internationally while there might be uncertainty in custom and logistic in certain countries. However, we are very committed to being transparent and will update our backers should there be shipment date changes.

Disclaimers

Notifications and phone calls: Ticwatch 2 can only receive notifications and make phone calls when connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone (please refer to FAQ “Does Ticwatch 2 work with both iOS and Android?” for supported device) with valid call and internet plan.

Heart rate monitor: Ticwatch 2 is not designed as medical device and you should not rely on the accuracy of heart rate data for any purpose, especially for medical or health purposes. 

Battery life: Your actual battery life will vary according to your personal settings, your rate and duration of use. 

Uber: You must have your Uber account linked to Ticwear companion app to be able to use it with your Ticwatch 2. Use of third party services is subject to the service’s own terms and conditions. 

Volcanic charger stand: Every Ticwatch 2 package will have a standard magnetic wireless charging dock inside. However, volcanic charger stand is only provided in Ticwatch 2 Onyx. 

Water Resistant: Ticwatch 2 has a IP rating of 65 which means it is protected from total dust ingress and low pressure water jets from any direction. Putting your watch under hot water and submerging your watch in liquid (e.g. swimming or shower) is strongly discouraged. 

Strap: The Strap of Ticwatch 2 is made from liquid silicon rubber for Charcoal and Snow, genuine leather for Oak and steel for Onyx. We can not guarantee that our watch strap will not cause any skin allergy. It is recommended that you consult with your doctors if you are skin-sensitive. 

Flip & Knock: You need to enable gestures in Ticwatch 2 settings (settings->gestures ) to use Flip & Knock

Risks and challenges

We are currently working hard at our software iterations with our seed users, consolidating production plan and coordination 3rd party vendors, e.g. international logistics. However, we still would like to inform you certain risks and challenges.

International Logistics Risk
Our watches include lithium batteries, which make them more difficult to ship. The speed and price of the shipping may vary with the number of units we deliver to each country.

Supply Chain Risk
We’ve spent the past two years building a very capable supply chain team. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and try our best to quickly solve the problem.
