Design Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3
The design is quite similar to the version under Wear Os 2100, a round watch with two navigation buttons placed on the right. This makes it more suitable for right-handed people wearing the watch on the left wrist.
The bracelet is equipped with a pin buckle very classic and easy to adjust. The imitation leather silicone finish becomes elegant with a stitching blue or red. The set gives it a classic analog watch style that is pleasant to wear on a daily basis, but also for sports activities.
- Touch screen composed of two superimposed LCD and AMOLED layers
- 64,000-color display
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (military standard resistance)
- Waterproof IP68 standard
- Dimensions: 45.1 x 45.1 x 12.6 mm
It should be offered in two finishes for the case in matt black or chromed steel.
The TicWatch Pro 3 obviously benefits from all the face customization options with the Wear Os library, but also the specific Mobvoi faces.
Improved functionality with Qualcomm Wear 4100
Qualcomm revealed its new Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 4100+ chipsets last June, promising better battery life and more features for the Wear operating system.
The watch takes advantage of the Google Wear Os interface and allows you to enjoy information from your smartphone directly on your wrist.

Autonomy still too short
The weak point of smart health connected watches under Wear Os. In fact, the majority operate with an autonomy of one day. With the new chipset, this should be increased to allow normal operation over 2 days. It should also retain the essential mode of the TicWatch Pro for use up to 30 days.
TicWatch Pro 3 pricing and availability
Surprisingly enough, the watch is already appearing on the English and German Amazon sites, without any description, but a price of 399 pounds. But, a few hours earlier the watch was offered for £ 299.99 or around $ 399 with the photo of the original TicWatch. The visual was updated, as was its price.
The price should therefore be around 499 $.
The official release date has been announced for the October 1, 2020.
