These Aren't Your Typical Smartwatches

  • Published on Jul 21, 2019
  • Apple and Samsung don’t just dominate the smartphone market in the US; they also make most of the smartwatches I see on a daily basis. So for this video, I wanted to introduce you to three less-common smartwatches. Whether they'll be counted among the best smartwatches of 2019 remains to be seen; but each of these is interesting in its own way. Join me for a look at the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 4G LTE; the Casio ProTrek WSD-F30; and the Garmin MARQ Captain - and be sure to vote in my Smartwatch 2019 Review Poll [in the Community tab on my Channel page] so you can have a say in which of these gets the full review treatment!


    MrMobile's Summer Smartwatch 2019 Roundup was produced following several weeks with a TicWatch Pro 4G LTE, Casio ProTrek F30, and Garmin MARQ Captain. The TicWatch and ProTrek are review samples on loan from Mobvoi and Casio, while the Garmin MARQ Captain was purchased by Mobile Nations. In keeping with MrMobile’s review policy, no compensation was requested or accepted, and no manufacturer was given editorial input or copy approval rights on this video.

    No thx to wear os witch is a joke when compared to watch os and tizen i am gonna stick to my GW42mm for next three years since Samsung actually updates the watch only downside on my GW is that Samsung Pay is not supported in my country and G-pay is not on GW but not a issue big enough to get a hot pile of trash called Wear os and GW knock offs

    Personally. If you have an iPhone just get an Apple watch, if you have a Samsung phone get the Galaxy Watch and anything else and get a fossil or something.
    For $300 with the TicWatch you're better off getting a Galaxy Watch even if you don't have a Galaxy phone. The bezel makes navigating the OS so much better, even better than the Apple watch.
    Other two are just plain ripoffs.

    Not sure if it's just me, but Mr Mobile's videos have been jumping a bit recently? I watch a lot of TheXvid videos, as well as Netflix, but this issue only seems to affect Mr Mobile videos.
    Is anyone else having this issue please?

    Still hoping someone makes a hybrid watch of sorts that allows some basic fitness tracking, aand swappable watch faces. I don’t want notifications or apps, I just want a super customizable watch that can also track my day to day stuff.

    For a run of the mill smart watch, age does come very quickly. The garmin, on the other hand, wont. I'm still wearing a fenix 3 hr. Still looks great, with the sapphire crystal. Has 100m water resistance. Still has good battery life. And the only reason I'm thinking of upgrading, is to get the garmin descent. Similar watch, with diving functions.

    I am so pained. I have the opportunity to buy a Montblanc Summit 2, but realized with some advice that after 2 years this watch will be essentially worthless. It's the most stunning watch ever, but in 2 years, that won't really matter. Sigh...

    A mechanical watch can last basically forever, and be repaired if the mechanism wears out. A computer on your wrist is just that. It will be useless in a decade on the outside. One-off mechanical masterpieces will do nothing but appreciate in value - a premium example of which would be - sure, it legit cost the equivalent of $200 grand to create, and is worth $25 million or more today, but as an extreme contrast... a smartwatch is disposable tech, and at $1800 it had better come with complimentary oral sex by a supermodel.

    goatee01 25 days ago

    The Garmin was great 'til I heard the price. Already got a Swiss Automatic that will never be more obsolete than it already is; don't need to pay the same again for a piece of tech that will be useless in 2 years. Glad this point was picked up on in the video.

  • Cameron S.
    Cameron S. 25 days ago

    Is there a bare essentials smartwatch with just a transflective lcd, phone media controls, canned text responses, and call answering/declining. Also less than $200 with 5+ days battery life?

    Oh, and don't say Pebble.

  • costafilh0

  • TheSizNation
    TheSizNation 25 days ago +1

    If the MARQ Captain is too pricey, check out the Quatics.
    Honestly, Garmin has a wide range of watches at various price points. This is definitely on the high-end, but was designed to be that way. The resolution is low to improve battery life. The features and gorgeous design are where the price comes in.
    The Hauwei GT is the sweet spot though.

    I have the ticwatch pro and it's so disappointing, it's slow and it's known for having connection issues. Also the bezel is made of cheap plastic and scratches so easily. This is my 4th android watch and easily the worst. I'm done with android watches.

  • Dean Lewis
    Dean Lewis 26 days ago

    Should check out Amazfit smartwatches. Battery life of close to a week, transflective screens and an affordable price tag.
    I like, but I've gone back to an old Pebble Time Steel which is still my favorite (would be more so if it did NFC Payments).

    Hello Michael. Thank you very much for this video. I was wondering what to thing about these new luxury Garmin watches and you offered us an excellent review of their possibilities and a realistic reflexion about this ridiculous price that doesn't stand their rapid obsolescence. Could you offers us a review about Misfit watches, please? I am wondering what to think about the Vapour 2 and the Command but no youtube tech reviewer seems to care about this brand..

  • Around Me

    When you buy a expensive watch like Rolex , Omega , Tissot etc they last for a life time if it's taken good care . But what about new smart watches do they last long? We pay 1000$ for expensive smart watches and as time passes by they loose resale value. One day will have a technical problem and die but on the other hand watch like Rolex maybe a limited edition one will retain it's resale value or increase its value . So what's the point buying it well we want smart technology on our wrist then we should focus on watches which does the both . If the smart display or motherboard fails then we can use it a regular watch for very long . There are few watch and reviewed one as I remember . 🙂

    Do the Garmin! It's way too expensive. It has flaws. It's annoying, but it's full of personality and it's quite special. Would be great if you could get the pilot version for testing, too.

    Has anyone else had any issues with your videos being really stuttery? It's been happening to me for a little while now and it doesn't seem to matter what device or network I'm on...nor does it happen with any other channel. I've been a fan of your work for a while now so it's pretty unfortunate...some of them are just unwatchable.
