TicWatch Pro: Last Monday (4), the company Mobvoi launched its new smartwatch TicWatch Pro X in the Chinese market. The wearable device stands out for the presence of the Snapdragon 4100 processor, powered by the new version of Google’s efficient Wear OS operating system. While it shares several features with its predecessor, TicWatch Pro 3, the newly released model has some design choices that make it unique.
Technology and appearance
The model has a “sandwich” of AMOLED and FSTN-LCD screens, which display the most relevant information for the user, such as time, step count, heart rate and distance traveled. The addition of the second technology, which visually resembles “older” digital watches, provides better viewing angles and improved energy efficiency for the TicWatch Pro X. In total, the display array adds up to 1.39″ and to 326 ppi.
Completely enclosed, the TicWatch Pro X body is water and dust resistant, ensuring the desired IP68 certification. The physical interface has two side buttons to interact with the system, while the crown is fixed and offers no levels of operation.
Specifications and availability
Mobvoi’s new smartwatch includes a powerful set of components inside. With the Snapdragon 4100 (quad-core, 1.7 GHz) as the processor, along with 1 GB of RAM and up to 8 GB of internal storage, TicWatch Pro X also supports LTE signal (4G) and pay-as-you-go via NFC.
Despite the Wear OS as an operating system, it’s important to note that the model is still running on version 2.0, with no confirmation of compatibility with version 3.0 – more recent and present on the Galaxy Watch 4, for example.
TicWatch Pro X is available for pre-order in the Chinese market for around US$370, or R$2,000 in direct conversion. There is no international release yet.
