Wear OS watches are known to sometimes have sluggish performance. Most often, this is due to insufficient memory.
To this end, the new TicWatch Pro 2020 model offers double the memory of its predecessor. This puts it on par with the TicWatch Pro cellular model. The 1GB of RAM should give a decent performance boost and improved responsiveness. This will make opening apps and accessing notifications an overall smoother experience with hardly any lag time.
What’s more, the upgraded model has improved durability. Its MIL-STD-810G rating means it can cope with harsh environmental conditions and extreme temperature fluctuations. This is a specification that was developed by the US military to denote that a device is field ready or “combat-ready”. The rating also means the watch is water-resistant down to depths of 1.5 meters for up to half an hour.
Other than that, TicWatch Pro 2020 takes on everything from the predecessor model. This includes built-in GPS (GLONASS + Beidou + Galileo), a slew of fitness sensors including heart rate, 4GB of storage and NFC for Google Pay.
In our review last year, we found TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE to be a great Wear OS option. The highlight of the device is its innovative duel-layer screen. It provides an always-on experience, excellent readability in the bright summer sun and extends battery life. An update towards the end of last year marked the arrival of much anticipated sleep monitoring functionality. Now you can truly use the TicWatch line-up for 24/7 health and fitness tracking.
