TicWatch watches from Mobvoi hit the top league of the most interesting Wear OS smartwatches three years ago, offering interesting functions and attractive design while maintaining reasonable prices. But it is getting better with TicWatch Pro 3 GPS.
TicWatch Pro 3 GPS made its debut in 2020 as the first watch with the latest Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor. This Qualcomm unit brought many improvements that were supposed to breathe new life into Wear OS.
