What the heck is going on with the chip powering the latest TicWatch?

What the heck is going on with the chip powering the latest TicWatch?

Before the launch of Samsung's Galaxy Watch4, Mobvoi's TicWatches were truly the only wearables worth recommending for Android users. Equipped with a Snapdragon Wear 4100, the TicWatch Pro 3 and E3 are two of the only devices you can find with that specific processor, even more than a year out from the former's launch. At least, that's the chip both watches were initially marketed with, but if you try to buy one today, you might be surprised to see an unannounced performance upgrade listed in the specs sheet.

TicWatch's Wear OS 3-upgradable smartwatch is $80 off today

Right now may seem like a slightly uncertain time to pick up a new Wear OS watch, considering that current watches will only get the new Wear OS 3.0 update next year and newer hardware is incoming. However, if you had to buy one, the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is probably your best bet, and a limited-time discount is making the deal sweeter.

Google confirms Wear OS 3 upgrade for a handful of current smartwatches — will yours get it, and when?

Google confirms Wear OS 3 upgrade for a handful of current smartwatches — will yours get it, and when?

Since Google and Samsung announced a relaunched version of Wear OS at I/O two months ago, anyone with a current-gen smartwatch has wondered whether their device will receive an upgrade. Samsung and Fitbit have both been open regarding whether older wearables will move to Wear OS — the answer is a solid "no" — but Google has remained vague in its language over the last two months. Finally, we're learning a lot more about the future of wearables on Android, and it's not all good news.

The TicWatch E3 could be the Wear 4100 smartwatch you've been waiting for

The TicWatch E3 could be the Wear 4100 smartwatch you've been waiting for

Mobvoi has been in many ways responsible for keeping the Wear OS platform even vaguely relevant in recent years. Its TicWatches continue to represent the best of a bad bunch in terms of Google-powered smartwatches. The TicWatch Pro 3 was the first to launch with Qualcomm's improved Wear 4100 chipset, but now that's being followed up by a sleek new model, the TicWatch E3.

While we're all waiting for Google's revamped Wear OS to drop later this year, there's only one watch running Android worth picking up right now: Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro 3. A year after its release, it's still the only wearable with Snapdragon's Wear 4100 chip. Mobvoi has done a great job keeping its flagship watch updated since launch, and now it's doing the same with its partner app. The latest update to its app refreshes the design to make it easier to manage your device and track your fitness.

Wear OS has drawn more than its fair share of criticism, but well-equipped watches that run Google's wearable OS are actually pretty nice to use. Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro 3 is among the best equipped out there, rocking a Wear 4100 chip and a whole gigabyte of RAM — and you can get your hands on one for $90 off in today's sale on Amazon.

TicWatch 3 Pro LTE is getting a double-stuffed update

TicWatch 3 Pro LTE is getting a double-stuffed update

We've already praised the TicWatch 3 Pro as being one of the only Wear OS watches worth buying today, but what about its LTE-equipped cousin? Mobvoi released a cellular version of its newest watch late last year in the UK, Germany, and Spain for staying connected on the go without a phone. That variant wasn't included in last week's software update, but luckily, TicWatch 3 Pro LTE owners didn't have to wait long for a new patch of their own.

TicWatch 3 Pro just keeps getting better, still probably the only Wear OS watch to buy

TicWatch 3 Pro just keeps getting better, still probably the only Wear OS watch to buy

To put it bluntly, the wearable market on Android isn't in a great place. Companies like Samsung and OnePlus have switched to using custom operating systems for their respective watches, with varying degrees of success. Meanwhile, Qualcomm shipped its newest processor for smartwatches last June, but it's still only found in one device. For that very reason, the TicWatch Pro 3 remains the single Wear OS watch worth buying today. If you already have it on your wrist, a new update brings some solid improvements to help make it that much better.

TicWatch has a new budget health tracker with temperature monitoring

TicWatch has a new budget health tracker with temperature monitoring

Mobvoi's TicWatches are some of the best wearables around right now. In fact, they're among the very few Wear OS watches that we would actually recommend buying. The latest addition to the lineup is a little different, however — it doesn't run Google's OS, it's almost entirely health focused, and it's exceedingly affordable.
