A day after the launch of the TicWatch Pro S, Mobvoi has pushed out a software update for the Pro 2020, which appears to offer many of the same features of the new model.
As well as a security patch, the update includes TicHealth 3.0 which brings improved health and fitness tracking capabilities. There’s also better sleep tracking, through TicSleep 2.0 and the new TicHearing app can monitor environmental noise to warn you if your hearing is at risk of damage.
Finally, a new voice-memo feature has been added, making it easy for you to record quick notes into your watch.
Somewhat confusingly, this update seems to give the TicWatch Pro 2020 access to most, if not all, of the features touted as new on the recently released TicWatch Pro S. We’re not yet sure whether the same updated has been pushed out to the original TicWatch Pro – since it’s based on the same hardware platform as the newer model (albeit with 512Mb of RAM instead of 1Gb) there’s no reason the update shouldn’t work for it.
If you’re already an owner of the TicWatch Pro 2020, this upgrade is a bonus. But if you’re currently deciding which TicWatch to buy, we recommend the Pro 3, as this is based on a much newer hardware platform.
