Upgrade Alert: TicWatch Smartwatches on the Move to Wear OS 3

Mobvoi to Upgrade Several TicWatch Smartwatches to Wear OS 3

Mobvoi, the company behind the TicWatch brand, has finally announced that several older TicWatch models are now eligible for the Wear OS 3 update. The update is expected to bring new features and improvements to these smartwatches, although no specific release dates have been mentioned.

The following older TicWatch models will receive the Wear OS 3 update: TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra GPS, TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra, TicWatch Pro 3 GPS, TicWatch Pro 3 LTE, and TicWatch E3.

In order to be eligible for the upgrade, the smartwatch must be running one of the current software builds: PMRB.220703.001, PMKB.211102.004, PMKB.211102.002, PMRL.220704.001. Additionally, Android users will need to ensure they have the latest version of the Mobvoi Health app before updating to Wear OS 3.

It is important to note that the update will perform a factory reset on the watch, resulting in the loss of all non-Tic third-party apps and their associated data. However, TicHealth, TicSleep, and TicExercise data will remain securely stored and synced with the new companion app.

Furthermore, some apps like Mobvoi Voicememo and TicHearing will no longer be available after upgrading to Wear OS 3, and Google Assistant will not be accessible. For iOS users, Google Maps and Google Wallet will also not be accessible following the update.

For those interested in updating their TicWatch smartwatch to Wear OS 3, Mobvoi has provided a step-by-step guide on their website for more details.

While the update brings some notable changes and limitations, it also promises to enhance the overall experience of using these smartwatches. Wear OS 3 is expected to offer improved performance and new features, making it a highly anticipated update for TicWatch users.
