According to information revealed in the app, Mobvoi TicWatch E3 should come on the heels of the TicWatch GTH.
The latter was released globally a few days ago although it has been available in China since the start of the year. The most novel aspect of the square shaped device is its skin temperature tracking functionality which works around the clock. The same is the case for blood oxygen levels. Otherwise the low-cost device comes with all the usuals.
Mobvoi TicWatch E3 – first info
It looks like Mobvoi may soon unveil another smartwatch. This one is the long-anticipated successor to the E2. First info on the E3 was uncovered by xda-developers via a teardown of the mobile app.
The E2 was originally unveiled at CES 2019 alongside the S2. Considering that it is some two year old now, the timepiece is well due for an upgrade. The current version comes with a polycarbonate build, 1.39-inch 400×400 AMOLED display and a swim-proof design (5 ATM).
The underlying specs of the E2 are decent for a budget timepiece. Under the hood is 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. The usual fitness tracking tech is also part of the package, including a heart rate sensor and built-in GPS/GLONASS/Beidou.
A mention of TicWatch E3 was dug up in the Mobvoi smartwatch app. The new model has not officially been mentioned by Mobvoi but a silhouette of the device can be seen in the image below.
The watch appears to have benefitted from some design enhancements. It looks slimmer than before with two physical buttons on the right-hand side instead of just one. Difficult to say anything as far as build but the E3 does appear to look sleeker than the E2 with a smaller bezel.
Nothing can be deduced about the specs but the operating system will probably be Wear OS once again. Mobvoi is one of a shrinking number of brands still supporting Google’s operating system.
Other specs would just be a guess at this stage but it is safe to predict the processor will receive an upgrade. The E2 runs on the old Qualcomm 2100 chip so we can expect this to be replaced with the 3100 chip or possibly (but unlikely) the 4100. We are guessing the watch will also pack an SpO2 sensor and possibly a skin temperature sensor.
One can also be hopeful about battery life. The sizable 415 mAh battery on the current version doesn’t run much above 2 days between charges. Hopefully Mobvoi will manage to improve on that.
This is the first info that we’ve spotted on the E3. A possible release date is difficult to estimate at this stage. Prior to the launch of TicWatch GTH Mobvoi did release teaser images. It will likely to the same once we get closer to the official unveiling.
