After releasing the original TicWatch Pro back in 2018, and then the 4G/LTE variant in July 2019, 2020 brings a refreshed model featuring more memory and increased durability. The Wear OS smartwatch still sports the unique dual-layer display consisting of an AMOLED panel and an LCD panel that enables the watch to offer up to 30 day’s worth of use.
The TicWatch Pro 2020 offers MIL-STD-810G durability to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, shock, dust, and water along with Gorilla Glass 3 protection for the display. The rating will guarantee watch owners protection in water up to 1.5m deep for up to 30 minutes. While the increased durability is welcomed, it’s a great shame that it is still powered by the increasingly obsolete Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, instead of the ever-so-slightly better SD3100 platform that offers increased efficiency thanks to its additional co-processor. It’s something that we said when the TicWatch Pro 4G was released last year and it’s even more relevant in 2020.
Available in Shadow Black and Liquid Metal Silver with leather or silicone straps, the TicWatch Pro 2020 is already on sale in the US and the UK for $259.99 and £220 respectively.
