Hello, TicWatch users! It’s time to rev up your wrists because Wear OS 3 is finally landing on your TicWatch smartwatches, and it’s bringing a whole new world of features.
The Wait is Over After a long wait and much anticipation, TicWatch models like the Pro 3, Pro 3 Ultra, and TicWatch E3, including their LTE versions, are getting the much-awaited Wear OS 3 update. Mobvoi, the brains behind TicWatch, took their sweet time, constructing an entirely new architecture to support this intricate update.
What’s New in Wear OS 3? Expect a spruced-up user experience with smoother animations and access to fresh apps and watch faces. But hold your horses – it’s unclear whether Google Assistant will join the party on these older watches.
Compatibility and App Management Worry not, iPhone users! Your TicWatch will still play nice with your Apple device post-update. Android users, you’ll need to switch to the Mobvoi Health app for smartwatch management, as the Wear OS by Google app is taking a bow.
Fossil’s Footsteps and Mobvoi’s Silence Mobvoi isn’t the first to roll out Wear OS 3 to its watches – Fossil already updated its Gen 6 smartwatches, though with its own set of issues. Meanwhile, Mobvoi’s silence and lack of transparency during the delay didn’t win them any fans.
Future Updates: A Question Mark With the prolonged rollout of Wear OS 3, it’s anyone’s guess whether Mobvoi will bring Wear OS 4 to its existing lineup. But if they do, let’s hope it’s quicker, especially with their claims of a new architecture developed for Wear OS 3.
Rollout in Phases The update starts rolling out today, but patience is key – it’s a staged release, so it might take a bit to pop up on your watch.
