With the launch of Pro3, it becomes the first Wear OS by Google smartwatch to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. It also features an improved battery life, blood oxygen tracking, new Tic apps including TicZen, TicBreathe, and TicOxygen, and more workout modes. The entire design has been updated to be lighter, thinner, and stronger, and has an incredibly sleek appearance with a silicone strap.
The TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is fuelled by a 557mAh battery and the company claims that the watch in Smart Mode is capable of delivering a battery life of up to 72 hours of use, while in Essential Mode, it lasts up to 45 days. As per the company, the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is the first to come on Wear OS by Google to take full advantage of the super-fast performance and ultra-low power of the highly-anticipated Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. The high performance is made possible through the revamped CPU, GPU and memory subsystems while the low power is achieved with the 12-nanometer process and a series of platform optimizations. These enhancements support faster app launches and help to bring a highly fluid and responsive user experience to the smartwatch.
