TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra LTE by Mobvoi, in-depth analysis

Smart watches have become an increasingly common accessory, despite their difficult beginnings due to the limitations of their technical characteristics, the recent additions of prestigious brands have managed to make smart watches a real option and every time. most common for most users.

We analyze in depth the new Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra LTE, a very complete smartwatch with all the features that can be expected from it. Discover with us this latest addition to the market by Mobvoi.

Design: Traditional look and Mobvoi quality

The firm of Asian origin has been manufacturing this type of device for a few years now and the fame it has achieved has not been by chance. In general, it bets on resistance, durability and good assembly in its wearables in order to convince the customer that they have made a good purchase in terms of value for money, This TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra LTE does not seem to be the exception. We are faced with a device with a round dial, crowned by a chronograph and two fixed buttons on the right bezel of the watch. It is a device that for its price already makes us predict to be of quality.

The back is for the charging port magnetized using traditional pins, dedicated watch sensors and strap adapters. We do not miss the opportunity to mention that the combination of materials is intended to achieve a Military-grade 810G shock, water and weather protection certification, so we shouldn't have any problems with daily use, this is a decidedly resistant watch.

  • Size: 47 x 48 x 12,3 mm
  • Weight: 41 grams
  • Makings: plastic and metal
  • Certifications: IP68 and MIL-STD-810G

It is surprising for its lightness, since the watch is made almost entirely of matte plastic, which will provide resistance despite the fact that, as we have said, It has a top bezel in the shape of a chronograph which is made of metal. The strap included with the device has brown leather on the outside and a kind of silicone coating on the inside, a pleasant combination that we liked a lot for its versatility. Due to the size and mechanism of the strap adapters, we will be able to include any type of universal strap to our liking.

Technical characteristics

It should be noted that this is a watch that has the latest version of wear OS, the Operating System that Google provides for wearables and for which more and more brands are betting in order to unify the possibilities they offer users and, above all, create a good catalog of applications that give meaning to a device with these characteristics. But its interior houses many more surprises.

To start choose the processor Snapdragon Wear 4100+ from Qualcomm, the bet for smartwatches from the most popular processor manufacturer, with proven performance and that can be seen in the performance of the tasks of the watch itself, which has offered us speed and fluidity in equal parts.

Finally, we will have 1GB of RAM, technically enough for the performance and demands of a device with these characteristics, and yes, only 8GB of storage memory internal both for applications and for other tasks that we are allowed to store offline music from certain streaming applications, watchafces or any other type of content. Do not forget, however, that at least 3,6GB of the 8GB of internal storage are already occupied natively.

at the level of operation we will have not only a speaker for the reproduction of content and notifications, but also a microphone, And indeed, as you have been able to imagine, you will be able to make and receive phone calls directly from the watch, it makes special sense if we take into account that at the level of connectivity we have the necessary technical characteristics for it.

This analyzed version has 4G/LTE wireless connectivity, although at the moment it is only compatible with the Vodafone OneNumber and Orange eSIM eSIMs, so since we have O2 we have not been able to verify the scope and execution of its 4G connectivity. Yes, we have verified the correct operation of your other wireless connectivity alternatives, that is, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, chip NFC that will serve us for configuration and of course for payments, as well as Bluetooth 5.0. If you do not want or are not interested in 4G technology in this type of device, at a slightly lower price you can purchase a version that exempts you from this functionality.

All sensors, all features

This Ticwatch Pro 3 Ultra has the necessary sensors and present in the latest range watches so that we can have a correct monitoring of our health, our training and of course our day to day. In all of them we have carried out a series of checks through training, using the well-known Apple Watch as a reference point, without notable differences.

This is the list of sensors that we have:

  • PPG heart rate sensor
  • SpO2 blood oxygen saturation sensor
  • Gyroscope
  • Barometer
  • Compass
  • GPS

Good autonomy and two screens

Although it may not seem so due to its design, the reality is that this Ticwatch Pro 3 Ultra has two screens, a brand new 1,4-inch AMOLED with a resolution of 454 × 454 pixels for 326 pixels per inch, and an overlapping FSTN Always One that shows us the information in black through a passive matrix LCD, like calculators or old clocks. When we activate the “essential mode” of the watch, this screen is activated, or automatically when there is 5% battery left.

  • 577 mAh battery
  • Magnetized pin charger (no power adapter included) via USB
  • The Mobvoi App is compatible with Android and iOS, integrating with GoogleFit and Health.

This slightly impairs the viewing angles of the AMOLED screen, but it is an interesting function for when we do long days away from home, for example in mountain training.

Editor's opinion

The great versatility of wear OS allows us not only to have an infinite number of applications and configurations for monitoring health and sports, such as SaludTic or Google Fit or Tic Health, but we can also access and configure each of these applications so that it offers us the information in a way that is really useful to us. Obviously we have sleep monitoring, the route taken, an innumerable catalog of predetermined exercises and the rest of the functions at the level of notifications, interaction and information that can be expected from a smartwatch with these characteristics.

The conflict comes in the price, where we find this version with LTE for €365 (€299 for the version without LTE) that rivals directly in the economic catalog with the alternatives from Huawei, Samsung and even Apple. Although it offers greater resistance and versatility, it puts the user at a crossroads as it does not stand out notably in price.
