Back in June, Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon Wear 4100 chipset, the first meaningful upgrade to Wear OS processors since the platform debuted in 2014. Those original watches used Snapdragon 400 processors, which were based on ARM Cortex-A7 cores. The Snapdragon 400 was succeeded by the Snapdragon Wear 2100 and the Snapdragon Wear 3100, both of which were also Cortex-A7. Now, the Snapdragon Wear 4100 is based on Cortex-A53, so you can expect a big improvement.
Now, the first Snapdragon Wear 4100 smartwatch is here in the form of Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro 3. Not only does it have the newer and substantially better chipset, but it has other improvements. For one thing, it's thinner and lighter than its predecessors. It's 12.2mm thin and it weighs in at 42g. It also comes with 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, a 577mAh battery, and a 1.4-inch AMOLED display.
Mobvoi also includes its own array of Tic fitness apps. These include apps like TicOxygen for SpO2 tracking, TicZen to help you calm down and track heart beat variations, TicSleep for sleep tracking, and TicHearing to tell you if it's too loud. Other apps include TicBreathe, TicExercise, TicMotion, and TicHealth. Of course, if you don't want to use them, you can always use Google Fit.
With the larger battery with Mobvoi's Dual Display technology that puts an analog screen on top of the OLED screen, you can get up to 72 hours of battery life with the TicWatch Pro 3. All of this comes in a package that costs $299.99, and you can order from Mobvoi.com and Amazon starting today.
