TicWatch Premium Smartwatches Launch In South Africa

Mobvoi is excited to announce that the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS and TicWatch GTH smartwatches are now available in South Africa. The premium Pro 3 GPS is the first Wear OS by Google™ smartwatch to use the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 4100 platform, while the GTH is a health expert on your wrist - with powerful sensors to help you reach optimal health.  

TicWatch Pro 3 GPS  

By using the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 4100 Platform, the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS promises a higher and faster performance while simultaneously conserving battery life. It offers improved performance for the CPU, memory, GPU and battery life. The watch features super-long battery life to keep you going every step of the way - up to 3 days or 72 hours in Smart Mode and up to 45 days in Essential Mode. 

Mobvoi’s Dual Display technology layers a low power consuming screen over a brilliant Retina AMOLED display, enabling battery conservation through the toggling between Smart Mode and Essential Mode.

  • TicBreathe monitors your heart rate, stress changes and helps you to relax through breathing training sessions.
  • TicHearing measures environmental noise between 30dB to 120 dB and alerts you of potential damage to your hearing organs and nervous system.

  • TicSleep: automatically track your sleep. This is now supported in Essential Mode to save battery life at night and the watch face doesn’t light up in the night so you are not disturbed.

 TicWatch GTH  

The TicWatch GTH is a health expert on your wrist, with powerful sensors to help you reach optimal health. These sensors continuously monitor your skin temperature, blood oxygen (SpO2) levels, heart rate, respiration rate, and even your sleep quality. Advanced fitness tracking also helps you keep track of your progress and show all that you’ve accomplished on a brilliant 1.55'' high-resolution colour display. Swim, bike and run all week long with up to 10 days of battery.  

Take health to the next level by continuously tracking your wrist skin temperature 24 hours a day. Your temperature is a core indicator as to your overall health. TicWatch GTH's sensor measures directly from your wrist and notifies you of any potential concerns. With TicWatch GTH monitoring your temperature all day and night, it can alert you when health issues arise, allowing you to act quickly.

With up to ± 0.1°C measurement accuracy (statistics were collected in a laboratory under controlled conditions by Mobvoi), the temperature sensor allows you to take on-demand readings within just a few seconds.

Intelligently monitor your blood oxygen levels (for fitness and wellness purposes) with built-in sensors 24/7 and easily access and view trends over time. The SpO2 sensor detects your oxygen saturation level by shining an array of LED lights into the blood vessels in your wrist.

Other highlights:
