After weeks of waiting for the TicWatch Pro 3 and seeing various rumors passing by, the time has come: the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS from Mobvoi is official. The watch will be available in October for 300 euros and contains an 85 percent faster Wear 4100 chip.
TicWatch Pro 3 GPS
It’s been a while since Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon Wear 4100. This chip could be very important for the WearOS platform. In recent years, companies have been reluctant to develop smartwatches for Google’s platform. The exact reason for this remains to be seen. It is expected that the disappointing battery life is one of the reasons.
Mobvoi is the first company to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset; a chip that should be many times more economical than its predecessor: the Snapdragon Wear 3100. Figures that Mobvoi presents with the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS confirm these expectations. The watch can work for 72 hours on a single charge – this applies to the ‘smart mode’. There is also an ‘Essential Mode’, where a switch is made between the energy-guzzling OLED panel, and the second TN screen, with a battery life of 45 days.
The second screen is what makes the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS, which was unveiled on Friday, special. In a normal smartwatch you will find one screen, usually an OLED variant. Mobvoi has added a second screen to the Pro 3, which uses TN technology and is much more energy efficient. By switching between screens, the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS can always display the most important information and the battery life will be saved.
Beyond Qualcomm’s efficiency claims, the chipset should also be much faster. Qualcomm promises up to 85 percent better performance. The extent to which this translates into daily use will have to become apparent once the watch is tested in practice. Comparable to the earlier TicWatch Pro watches, the TicWatch Pro 3 contains 1 GB of RAM. The storage memory has been increased to 8 GB, from 4 GB in the current Pro.
The watch will run on WearOS and will contain well-known apps such as Google Maps and Assistant. There is also support for GPS and NFC on the watch; the penultimate function comes in handy with the watch’s sports functions. Sports activities can be registered, your SpO2 (oxygen level in your blood) can be measured and your heart rate can be constantly measured via the built-in heart rate sensor.
Do you sweat a lot while exercising, or are you often outside during sports activities? The TicWatch Pro 3 can withstand the necessary rain showers with its IP68 certificate. Finally, the watch can track your sleep pattern if you wear it during the night. With the longer battery life, so that the watch does not have to be charged every day, that is made a lot easier.
Buy TicWatch Pro 3 GPS
Mobvoi will market the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS from October 5 in Belgium and the Netherlands for a price of 300 euros. The watch is available in one color only: Shadow (gray / black). Currently, the watch seems to be sold only at the official Mobvoi web store. Later, the Pro 3 will also be sold at other sellers, including Coolblue and other web stores.
