Worth waiting for the TICWRIS MAX?

The look and specs of this upcoming watch appear near identical to the LEM T. It does have face unlock which I don’t care about. I was planning to order a LEM T soon, but if the MAX has other significant improvements (esp. manufacture quality) I’ll wait for it.

I’d go for the lem t if I were you
btw, where does it say the ticwris max comes from kospet?

It was originally posted as a Kospet at Banggood but I guess that was a mistake. Since it’s not a Kospet I’m not as interested. Nothing against TICWRIS I just don’t have experience with them.

Yes! Worth getting over the LEMFO LEMT because of the new firmware:

Loving the watch on my first day after set up. I did a video witch I will edit down and put out. Overall good stuff. The display is fantastic but Wiiwatch 2 just isn’t working for me but I am going to wipe and reload just to see. User error is always first to check.

I’ve picked up the Ticwris Max and here are my observations and notes.

  • First - UPDATE, not the firmware on the watch, but apps on the Android OS.
    Until you get Google updated, you won’t be able to download much from the Play store.
  • Second - remember, this is Android OS, meaning, really (to me) this is a micro-format phone/tablet (mablet?). What we really have here is a launcher (like Nova) except that the stock launcher runs a clockskin that is showing you a watch face.
    Remember this fact as it will help in understanding how to use/setup your watch.
  • Ditch WiiWatch 2 app to manage your phone/watch connection. Get the Watch Droid Phone for your phone, and Watch Droid Assistant for your watch - DO THIS NOW it’s really, really worth it, and worth the purchase price to get the premium features.
    *Launchers - the launcher is what renders the screen for you to look at and it controls how you interact with the device. One of the first things you need to do is force your watch to always be in landscape mode. I use and app called Rotation Pro (app store - HDM Dev Team - $2.99 for pro version). Because AndroidOS is used on phones, the default and often forced orientation is Portrait, Rotation Pro you can force landscape - note that you will have to go into settings on the app so that this app will start after a reboot. Apps like YouTubeTV will start in landscape mode with this app installed (and force landscape set), otherwise they toggle to portrait when choosing a channel/video, and then the landscape for full screen watching (very annoying!)
    The Launcher I’ve currently settled on is Nova, the same one I used on my phone.To display my time and date, I use an app called Digital clock Xperia, it’s big enough to be a watchface on the screen. I have tried Win X Pro Launcher (now called Computer Launcher by Pro Themes and Launchers), Universal Launcher (from the forums here), and Liner Launcher (also from the forms here), I’ve currently settled on Nova because I know it and own it on my phone.
    Remember - the TicWris Max battery is big, but there is aggressive background app management, meaning that when your watch goes to sleep, most apps are killed. This is a problem for things like widget updates, and so much more. So, remember this, as you add apps, if it’s important they run when the screen is off, you need to exclude them from battery management - on the watch under Settings->More->Background Cleaner->Battery Saver, tap to list apps and toggle the setting to include (on/right) or exclude (off/left).
  • I’ve been using this watch for well over 2 weeks now, battery life is very good, with moderate to heavy use (no SIM, but I have 100’s of notifications from my work messaging app) you can expect 1.5-2 days. With a SIM, just today I observed that from 100% in the morning until almost 9PM, just about 13 hours (according to the battery in settings, I have 3 hours left at 21%), fairly heavy notification usage, wake on wrist ON, most of the usage is screen time, cell standby clocks in a 2%, so screen time today was killing me.
  • I urge you to find and install Floating Toucher, it helps manage frequent settings, and also get the free Volume slider, quick adjustment of audio levels.
    That’s it for now, I’m planning a more extensive review/write up with my observations in the near future - I’m waiting for my KronosBlade Genesis to arrive (at the end of April we’re told).
    All the best and very happy to be a Full Android Watch forum member and watch user.
