The latest firmware update for the TicWatch Pro 3 introduces a variety of enhancements

The TicWatch Pro 3 is getting a big software update that will improve it in a number of ways and make the chipset work better.

The watch is the first of its kind to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor. Although there are now only a few devices that use the new chipset, we anticipate that there will be more in the not too distant future. The 4100’s performance is both quicker and more consistent, which is one of its primary advantages. The TicWatch Pro 3’s 8 gigabytes of storage space and 1 gigabyte of random access memory (RAM) also help with this.

Battery life is one area in which Google’s operating system could use some improvement. Because it consumes less power, the 4100 chip is helpful in this regard. The TicWatch Pro 3, along with the Suunto 7, is one of the greatest Wear OS devices that are currently available for purchase.
