The TicWatch Pro 3 comes equipped with a microphone, 8 gigabytes of built-in storage, and a pre-installed voice recorder. This means that you can use it to make both short and long voice recordings while on the go. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be about notes. Thanks to the option of being able to install 3rd party apps, you can also use something like Messenger to send voice messages. So, to record with the TicWatch Pro 3:
The Mobvoi comes with an elegant feature that allows you to convert/automatically transcribe your voice recordings into text. It’s obviously not going to be as accurate as a human. But there’s no arguing that it’s better than having to type everything in yourself. To use this feature:
Almost all smartwatches support heart rate monitoring nowadays. However, only a small fraction comes with SaO2/oxygen saturation monitoring – and the TicWatch Pro 3 is included in that small percentage. To detect your blood oxygen levels:
Smartwatches, just like smartphones, use Lithium-ion batteries. And one thing that is not commonly known is that these kinds of batteries are under more stress when they are either depleted or fully charged. This can somewhat shorten their lifespan in the long term. So, ideally, you want to keep your watch charged somewhere between 20% and 80%. This can potentially increase your overall battery’s lifespan. But also, don’t forget that heat is actually the biggest enemy of batteries.
While we are on the subject, if battery life isn’t very important to you, there is always the option of using the Always On Display. This disables the secondary display and keeps the much brighter and colorful AMOLED display instead when the watch goes to sleep. To turn AOD on:
Speaking of saving battery, did you know that the TicWatch Pro 3 comes with two displays? The main one is an AMOLED display, while there’s also a low-power LCD one above it. It should be enabled by default. But, if it’s not, you can enable it by turning off AOD (Always On Display) in:
As we mentioned at the beginning, the TicWatch Pro 3 is full of features. And while that’s obviously a good thing, some features consume a lot of power – which is bad for battery life. One way of fixing that is by disabling features that you don’t need. And this can be done either for individual features or by disabling everything with Essential Mode. As the name suggests, Essential Mode turns off everything except the essential features – such as the time. Definitely consider turning that on when you only need your smartwatch to work as a watch and nothing more. So, to turn Essential Mode on:
Simply saying the name aloud once or twice will prevent you from making names that look pretty but are a phonetic disaster.Example - I have two names, one for an elf woman and one for an island, that I made without speaking them aloud. Maglorwyn and Irezure (respectively). "mag-glor-win" is easy enough for ME to say, but it's a nightmare for my players so she told them "just call me maggie". Irezure doesn't really roll off the tongue until you say it 15 times (and decide HOW to say it). I eventually decided on "ee-reh-zuhr" but the first attempt came out sounding like an electric razor.
I can't believe I never made this before, it's so helpful: http://imgur.com/a/DeRsNIt's just a little one-page reminder for me to reference to keep handy the player's actions and some key info on them.I'm not putting every race/class feature from the part on it, just the key ones that are actions, bonus actions, or reactions, or have specific usage limits (on your turn, once per turn, etc.), plus a few other ones that have specifics worth remembering, like Sculpt Spells' requirement to see the creature excluded. I find my biggest shortfall in the blur of combat is trying to remember if the player is trying to take a bonus action when they've already used one, or using some other ability when they shouldn't be able to.
