Mobvoi, the company behind the TicWatch smartwatches, just teased its upcoming smartwatch (via 9to5Google). The teasing — which is just one dark picture — doesn’t tell us much, though. It only has a text that reads ‘Arrival of the Epic Front Runner’ and a smartwatch below the message.
In comparison: the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS is equipped with the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ silicone, which according to Mobvoi can last up to 72 hours on a single charge with Smart Mode enabled. So if the Snapdragon W5+ is as efficient as Qualcomm claims, the next TicWatch should, in addition to its better performance, also have longer battery life.
thanks to a reddit userWe also know that the upcoming TicWatch will most likely have an IP68 resistance rating, new IHB/AFib detection — the feature that looks for irregularities in your wrist — and new mental fatigue assessments. It is not clear from the Redditor which version of Wear OS the upcoming TicWatch will run. However, since it is a new device, we assume that the next TicWatch will come with Wear OS 3.
As for when we can expect the new TicWatch, in Qualcomm’s announcement, Mobvoi stated that it will be coming this fall.
