Clearly, we have a winner, but…

I don’t know what it is about the Google Pixel Watch and the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 5, but I’m finding it incredibly difficult to pick between the two.

Every morning I wake up and I have to make a decision of whether I’m wearing the Pixel Watch or the TicWatch Pro 5, and it’s not an easy decision!

I mean both watches are really good, both have their strengths and weaknesses and both work really well with my Google Pixel 7 Pro.

That’s why I decided to make a list of the things each watch does better and share it with you in the form of a blog post.

On a side note, I am comparing the first generation of the Pixel Watch which I’ve been using for around a year to the TicWatch Pro 5 which I’ve been using for around 12 weeks.

But without any further ado, here is my comparison of the TicWatch Pro 5 vs the Google Pixel Watch.

It’s nice to have a larger display!

As much as I love the Pixel Watch, I feel that at 1.2 inches, the display is small, I wouldn’t say too small, but I will say that it’s small.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but if we compare it the the TicWatch Pro 5 which has a 1.43-inch display, it’s just nice to have that extra room!

It definitely makes typing easier, although with that being said, I find the typing experience on the Pixel Watch pretty decent.

Having a bigger display also makes it easier to see and interact with apps which is quite important as you don’t want to make the most from using the app on your watch, you don’t want to have to open it on your phone to be able to see it more clearly.

Speaking about the display, it’s nice to see the TicWatch Pro 5 have a dual display which not only improves the battery life but also makes it easier to see the time during bright days.

Mobvoi Health apps are better than Fitbit’s offering

I was excited to hear that Google was integrating Fitbit with the Pixel Watch. I thought it would be a whole new thing for WearOS smartwatches.
