The competition between the Pixel Watch and Samsung’s Galaxy Watch has dominated the Wear OS world recently, with many hoping for a greater range of players in the field. Fortunately, it seems that Mobvoi is about to shake things up with the upcoming release of the TicWatch Pro 5. Thanks to a leaked upload on a Canadian Amazon product page, we now know all of the exciting details.
The TicWatch Pro 5 will run on Wear OS 3 and feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon W5+ chip, along with a 611mAh battery. The watch will only have one crown, unlike its predecessor the TicWatch Pro 3, and will be slimmer overall. Other leaked specifications include a 1.43″ 400p panel with the hybrid OLED and ESTN display that is characteristic of the series. The backlight coloring will be user-customizable, and the watch will have Corning Gorilla Glass, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 4, and global location tracking radios. Additionally, the TicWatch Pro 5 will include NFC with Google Wallet support, a compass, barometer, mic, and speaker, with a water immersion rating of 5ATM and MIL-STD-810H durability.
Inside the watch, the TicWatch Pro 5 will have 2GB of RAM and 32GB of local storage, which is double and quadruple the amount of storage on the TicWatch Pro 3, respectively. While the exact battery capacity is yet to be confirmed, we know that the watch will have an extended use mode that should last up to 80 hours, with the ability to charge from zero to 65% in just 30 minutes.
For biometrics and athletic performance tracking, the TicWatch Pro 5 will include round-the-clock heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and VO2 Max charting, as well as respiratory, SpO2, stress, and another statistic tracking. However, the one downside is that the TicWatch Pro 5 will be heavier than both the TicWatch Pro 3 and 3 Ultra, measuring 50.15 × 48 × 12.2mm.
Overall, the TicWatch Pro 5 looks like an exciting addition to the Wear OS market. Although Mobvoi has been teasing the release of the watch for a while, this leaked retail mistake suggests that it could be arriving on the market sooner than expected.
