Mobvoi’s TicWatch Pro 3 GPS has been on the market for over a year, and the firm is now releasing an incremental update to the watch. The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS is nearly identical to the TicWatch Pro 3, with the exception of a unique secondary display that uses the backlight to provide a splash of color. The watch body as well as the supplied silicone strap have been updated.
The 1.4-inch AMOLED “Smart” display remains, while the secondary, low-powered FSTN display receives an improved backlight configuration. This backup display is always on and consumes very little electricity. You may also check the time, date, step count, or current workout information here without turning on the Smart display. The illumination color of the Ultra model may be customized; there are 18 distinct colors to select from. The screen is still black and white.
Mobvoi promises a battery life of up to 45 days in Essential Mode (with smart features disabled) and up to 72 hours in Smart Mode. The smartwatch is powered by the Snapdragon 4100 Wear Platform “and Mobvoi dual processing system,” according to the official spec sheet. This contradicts previous reports that the Ultra variant would be powered by the Snapdragon 4100+ Wear processor.
Mobvoi’s Health tracking, 24-hour heart-rate and stress monitoring, SPO2 tracking, step counting, five-antenna GPS, barometer, and NFC for Google Pay are all included in the new wristwatch.
TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra is not a real successor, but rather a refresh model. As a result, the TicWatch Pro 3 non-Ultra has now been discounted from $299 to $255. The new Ultra model will go for $299 and is only available in Shadow Black.
