You can now leave your phone behind when going on a run.
What you need to know
- Mobvoi has launched the TicWatch Pro 3 LTE, a variant of the TicWatch Pro 3.
- It will be available on December 1 from £330 or €360, depending on your market.
- You’ll need to have Vodafone OneNumber to use its LTE capabilities.
Mobvoi today announced the TicWatch Pro 3 LTE edition. This is a model of the TicWatch Pro 3 it released earlier this year, but with built in support for LTE connectivity. It will be limited to the UK, Spain, and Germany at launch, allowing you to use your smartwatch while decoupled from a phone. You’ll still be able to handle phone calls and reply to text messages and WhatsApp, you’ll just be doing that on your wrist.
The new TicWatch Pro 3 LTE is powered by Vodafone’s OneNumber, which means you’ll need to have an eligible Vodafone plan to make full use of this smartwatch. Eligible plans vary by country, so if you do plan on getting this, make sure to check your carrier’s local page just to make sure.
Aside from that, everything else about the TicWatch Pro 3 LTE remains the same, though. So you’ll be getting one of the best smartwatches on Google’s Wear OS backed by a Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. Connectivity-wise, aside from LTE, it has NFC for Google Pay, Bluetooth for music, location services via GPS and Glonass. The watch is also IP68 certified, so it’s suitable for use in swimming pools.
Reviewing the TicWatch Pro 3, Android Central’s Chris Wedel concluded:
TicWatch Pro 3 is the choice for the person who wants to keep better track of their health. With its improved heart rate sensor, added SpO2 sensor, and inclusion of new apps to track more aspects of your health, the Pro 3 is a wonderful addition to your fitness goals.
You’ll be able to buy the TicWatch Pro 3 for £329.99 or €359.99 from Amazon or directly from Vodafone when it goes on sale later today.
