A new Ticwatch is coming and its makers Mobvoi have already revealed the name and one of the big features we can expect from the smartwatch.
A landing page for the Ticwatch E2, clearly an update to the Ticwatch E, is already up on Mobvoi's website. It's prompting anyone interested in the new watch to sign up to its mailing list for more details when they become available.

Along with the name, Mobvoi has also revealed that 'water is now your friend' indicating its new waterproofness. The E was slapped with an IP67 water resistance rating, which meant it was good for rain or sweat but you couldn't take it in the pool. This seems to suggest this watch will now be fit for swimming.
That's all we've got so far in terms of specs, but it's probably safe to say it will run on the latest version of Google's Wear OS and will be packing a Snapdragon processor. Although, will it be Qualcomm's Wear 2100 processor or the recently announced 3100 chipset?
Does it also mean we will see an upgraded version of the Ticwatch S too? The slightly more expensive sporty Wear watch was announced and launched alongside the E in 2017, so it's definitely a strong possibility. We were fans of both of the sub-$200 watches when we put them to the test, so we'll be interested to see if the E2 brings more to the features party to make it even better value for money.
We don't know when the new Ticwatch E2 is going to be announced, but we think it's safe to say that it will be with us before the end of 2018.
