Frequent OTA Updates
The Ticwear OS Global Edition has been refined over 5 versions since May 2016, with the continued devotion of our tester community. We are committed to listening to you, our community, and look forward to improving the OS even more with your help.
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. Our design reflects the principles that we persist: simplicity, quality, and craftsmanship.
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, 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.
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.

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.
