Ticwatch Pro 2020 vs Pro 3 vs Pro 3 4G – Features Review

  1. Snapdragon 2100 vs 3100 vs 4100 – The Differences
  2. Before we talk about the difference in the design of these three smartwatches, it’s important to point out that the game-changer that makes the newer Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G better than their older counterparts is the presence of the Snapdragon 4100 chip which is more advanced than 3100 and 2100 chips. It has a higher GPU; Adreno 504 at 750MHz compared to 3100/2100 with a GPU of Adreno 304 at 400MHz which represents a 150% increase.

    The 4100 chip also has a higher CPU, it’s built on a 64bit 12nm fabrication process with a 1.7GHz speed compared to 32bits, 1.2GHz, and 28nm process of 3100/2100. In other words, the 4100 chip ushers in faster performance which is why you can expect to get a better experience with the newer Ticwatches running on this chip compared to those running on the older chips which experts consider outdated.

  3. Design: What Has Changed
  4. When you talk about the design, nothing much has changed overall as all three smartwatches look just the same in appearance. The materials used don’t also differ that much, reinforced carbon fiber has been used for the case of all three materials. The straps differ, Pro 3/Pro 3 4G comes with silicone straps, while Pro 2020 comes with a hybrid leather strap with silicone underneath. The good thing is that all three have interchangeable straps that you can swap with any compatible 22mm wide straps.

    When you look at the display, it’s the same dual display consisting of FSTN and AMOLED technologies. Mobvoi came up with this plan to help improve on the very poor battery life of most Wear OS smartwatches – no thanks to a lagging and outdated chip and platform. You can switch between the two displays easily at any given time. The FSTN display which is also referred to as the essential mode will deactivate most Wear OS features leaving just the time, date, and a few other complications, while the AMOLED display referred to as smart mode, will keep all features active. With the essential mode, you can get a far longer battery life, while the smart mode will get you shorter battery life. The purpose is to allow you to manage battery life depending on your need.

  5. Fitness Tracking – Ticwatch Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G Come with blood oxygen measurement and more
  6. Mobvoi has added new fitness tracking features to the Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G as you can see features like blood oxygen measurement, hearing protection, and breathing apps which Pro 2020 lacks. There’s also a barometer in the newer Ticwatches that allows these two to measure elevation movement which is not possible with Pro 2020 as it lacks a barometer.

    Beyond the differences mentioned above, each of these three will make a decent fitness smartwatch that can help you track your daily activities and can help you stay fit. All three smartwatches have sleep, heart rate, and step tracking. You also get inbuilt GPS on all three smartwatches which allow you to monitor outdoor activities like your routes, locations, and other related stats.

    Another fitness tracking feature present on each of these three is preset sport modes that allow you to choose your preferred sport modes depending on your fitness schedules and lifestyle, there are only about a few sport modes.

  7. Media: Ticwatch Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G Have More Storage

  8. All three Ticwatches come with 1GB RAM which is expected to help improve processing power for the respective chips. The 4100 chip which is more advanced has better processing power, this in addition to the 1GB RAM offers better performance. Meanwhile, the Pro 2020 also has a decent performance when we tested it.

    You get 8GB storage capacity with Pro 3 which is higher than 4GB on Pro 2020. If you like to store many of your tracks on your watch, then a bigger storage will make a better decision for you. I don’t really see this as a big difference because I hardly store so many tracks on any of my watches, but it all depends on your lifestyle.

  9. Battery Life: Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G Have Longer Battery Life
  10. With Snapdragon 4100 onboard and having a higher battery capacity, Ticwatch Pro 3 has a longer battery life than Pro 2020. You can get up to 2 days or more with the smart mode, while with essential mode, it’s a whopping 45 days long battery life. This dwarfs the 1 days+ and about 30 days long battery life in essential mode with Pro 2020.

  11. Ticwatch Pro 3 4G is a standalone smartwatch
  12. While the Pro 3 4G shares a lot in common with Pro 3, it’s a standalone smartwatch as it comes with an eSIM which enables cellular connectivity on this watch. It was recently released in Germany and is also available in the US, UK, and a few other countries. As a standalone smartwatch, the Pro 3 4G will allow you to make and receive calls directly from the watch just like you would with Galaxy Watch 3 LTE model, it’s also the most expensive.

    Meanwhile, both Ticwatch Pro 2020 and Pro 3 come with a loudspeaker and microphone that enable any of these two to be able to make and receive calls but must be connected to your phone.

Our Verdict

Going by the design, fitness tracking, media, battery life, and all other features overall, you can see that Ticwatch Pro 3 and Pro 3 4G are more equipped to deliver the best experience. These two are the most advanced Wear OS smartwatches and no doubt some of the very best on the market today.

The Ticwatch Pro 3 4G which is a standalone smartwatch is a more comprehensive smartwatch, it allows you to install apps, watch faces, and make and receive calls independent of a smartphone.

Meanwhile, Ticwatch Pro 2020 is a lot cheaper, yet a sturdily built and durable smartwatch that is highly rated by users. It’s no doubt a decent choice if your low on budget, but if you want a more comprehensive experience, the Pro 3 is better.
