Which app is absolutely necessary to install ?

Post by paolocorpo » Wed Jan 16, 2019 7:18 am

Dear,
today I will receive my new TicWatch Pro
Of course I have on my device WEAR OS app (until today used for my Moto 360 2nd smartwatch)
Is it necessary to install a new app ? And if yes ... which one ??
I al listening about Tic wear app but it is asking a lot of authorization ...
Is it safe ?
But ... is it absolutely necessary ??
I was using for my fitnees management the Google Fit app and it is enough for me

This app is just another fitness tracker to readout steps, burned calories and stuff.
Pretty useless if you use the google stuff already.
The app does not have any other features such as settings or so.

Those are indeed basic apps you'll want. If you're really into unique watch faces though, I've used WatchMaker for several years, first with the Huawei Watch 1 and now with the TicWatch Pro. You can even build one from scratch, or use someone else's and customize it. There's a massive community on Google+ for support, as well as others offering their custom watch faces for download.

Since the RAM is so low on this model, I try to keep the apps to a minimum.

in order to the smartwatch to work you do not need to install more apps besides wear os on your phone.

google fit also possible to keep the same app

You will need to install the Mobvoi app and also the Google Home app.

The Mobvoi app will have instuctions and options for you to choose the permissions you would like to allow.
