The TicWatch S2 debuted alongside the cheaper E2 early this year. At $179.99, the S2 was already pretty fairly priced, but Mobvoi is now offering a massive 50% discount on its new "Glacier" color. If you've been on the hunt for a cheap Wear OS watch that isn't a million years old, this should definitely pique your interest.
Like the regular Midnight (read: black) S2, the Glacier S2 sports a 1.39" 400p AMOLED display, a Snapdragon Wear 2100, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 415mAh battery. It carries both 5 ATM and MIL-STD 810G ratings, meaning that it's resistant to pretty much anything. Mobvoi quotes a battery life of two days, which is pretty solid.
Despite the S2 itself only being around four months old, Mobvoi is offering a whopping 50% off on the Glacier S2 with code S2GLACIER for some reason. That brings the price down to just $89.99 with free shipping included. We've reached out to Mobvoi to see if this was a mistake on their end, as it seems too good to be true, but get on the deal while you can.
As we had suspected was the case, the deal was an error. Somebody at Mobvoi had intended to program a 5% discount into the system and entered "50%" instead. Hopefully, some of you were able to take advantage of the deal before it was pulled.
