Mobvoi has introduced a successor to last year's TicWatch Pro 2020. Unfortunately, the company continues to use the Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, which should have long been retired. The TicWatch Pro S features 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage and retails for US$259.99.

Last year, Mobvoi became the first company to adopt Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform, which provided Wear OS with the shot in the arm that the Wear 2100 and its derivatives could not provide. Unfortunately, Mobvoi's latest smartwatch uses the Wear 2100, which is now into its fifth year of production.

The TicWatch Pro S succeeds the TicWatch Pro 2020, albeit while retaining its core features. Not only do the TicWatch Pro S and TicWatch Pro 2020 share the same chipset, but they also share 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage and a 415 mAh battery. Likewise, Mobvoi has brought over the 1.39-inch AMOLED display and its FSTN LCD, too.

According to Mobvoi, the TicWatch Pro S differs from its predecessor in that it supports VO2 Max, TicExercise 3.0, TicSleep 2.0, pool-swimming suitable, TicBreathe, TicHearing and Voice Memo. Everything else remains the same, for better or worse.

The TicWatch Pro S retails for US$259.99 and is available to purchase from Mobvoi or retailers like Amazon. However, if you are interested in the TicWatch Pro S, then we would urge you to consider the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS instead. For US$40, Mobvoi includes the latest Snapdragon Wear SoC, a larger battery and double the storage. Currently, Amazon sells the TicWatch Pro 3 for US$289.99 before taxes, which reduces the price gap between it and the TicWatch Pro S to a mere US$30.
