Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3
An early ‘leak’ on amazon.co.uk shows the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 will be ready for sale on 1st October. I wouldn’t normally write about this however there is one MARKET-CHANGING innovation that this product will bring. Well, it will bring the innovation but whether it will be market-changing is another matter. Let’s instead say it will be ‘market-defining’! That innovation is the latest SnapDragon 4100 processor.
Yes, this is the next generation of WearOS processor that will likely underpin all of the high-end watches that use Google’s software platform over the next two years. We will get a good idea as to whether this new bit of hardware can make WearOS fly. My opinion is that it can fly already but other commentators need supersonic performance, let’s hope they are happy because part of the problem with Wear OS is the generally bad rap it gets.
The TicWatch Pro 3 shown in these renders do look sweet but with Apple set to release/announce a new lower-cost Apple Watch 6SE in a couple of weeks, it makes you wonder if all of Apple’s competitors think a little too highly of themselves.
This product will change little and reveal little. Wear OS is fine and Mobvoi’s TicWatch’s are fine for what they are.
We need to see what Apple brings in a couple of weeks and we need to see what, if anything, Google can do with moving Wear OS in a more positive direction.
