Mobvoi has released another variant of TicWatch 3 Pro. The Sports version comes with support for more activities and some tweaks to the algorithms.
We’ve already seen two variants of Mobvoi Ticwatch 3, the Pro GPS that was launched in 2020 and the Pro Ultra GPS. The latter comes with a more robust build, faster speed and better performance. Unveiled in October 2021, this is a very rugged variant, as evidenced by its MIL-STD 810G certificate.
Now the company has announced yet another iteration in the series. It comes in the form of TicWatch Pro 3 Sports.
TicWatch Pro 3 Sports is official: here’s what’s new
As its name implies, this timepiece has been tweaked to better support sport lovers. To this end greater attention has been put on supporting various exercise activities.
In fact, you can track over 100 sports with it which is up from just 10 on the previous models (outdoor & indoor running, outdoor & indoor cycling, rope skipping, swimming, indoor walking, rowing, freeStyle, mountain climbing, gymnastics, and yoga). Some of the sports which have now made the cut include football, skiing, table tennis and rugby. They all come with accompanying training data such as calories burned, heart rate, duration and exercise specific indicators.
There’s also auto-recognition for some activities that comes courtesy of the TicMotion motion active recognition AI. This includes walking, running and cycling. Furthermore, there’s automatic counting for activities such as jumping jacks, rope skipping and a few more. For swimming there’s stroke and lap recognition. To make sure you improve, the algorithm has the ability to provide training suggestions for a number of different sports.

What is unchanged from the previous models is the 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 454 x 454 pixel resolution and the second low-power FSTN LCD screen which sits on top. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 processor, typical fitness sensors including blood oxygen. There’s also a 577mAh battery to keep the WearOS watch running for up to 72 hours between charges. In essential mode this climbs to a much better 45 days.
In China, the new Mobvoi smartwatch is available for pre-order at a price of 1,999 yuan (around $300). We await official information to find out if it will also be released in other countries.
