Ticwatch S vs S2: Which is Better?

Each of these two look decent enough to at least warrant the respective price tags. But then, the S2 with MIL-STD-810G – US military grade rating and reinforced glass fiber case material is a more rugged and durable smartwatch than the Ticwatch S. Moreover, the S2 rated 5ATM (waterproof up to 50 meters) is swim-proof and can track some of your activities while swimming which isn’t possible with the S.

VERDICT: The Ticwatch S2 is a more durable and better equipped smartwatch than its predecessor which off course explains the higher price.
