It looks like a TicWatch Pro 3 Wear OS smartwatch could be on the way in the near future, as a listing briefly appeared on Amazon in the UK showing the new device and some of its key specs.
As spotted by 9to5Google, the list has since changed to show a different image and a more generic name, but it looks like a new TicWatch-branded smartwatch is indeed on the way.
And that wouldn’t really come as a surprise – the TicWatch smartwatches we’ve seen so far are some of the best Wear OS devices in the business, and maker Mobvoi is going to want to take advantage of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 4100. portable processor.

TicWatch’s new hardware was indeed mentioned during the unveiling of the Snapdragon 4100 and 4100 Plus, so it’s not as if we don’t expect another smartwatch from the brand to arrive in the near future.
According to the listing on Amazon, the “near future” will actually be October 1 – although that could be a fictitious date, so don’t bet your whole house on it just yet. The timing would make sense with the deployment of the Snapdragon 4100 series.
Unfortunately, the list doesn’t tell us too much about the TicWatch Pro 3 other than the updated processor and launch date. We’re assuming the device will come with the usual TicWatch polish and everything the latest Wear OS software has to offer.
By the way, you haven’t missed the TicWatch Pro 2 – Mobvoi has released an updated version of the original TicWatch Pro with more memory and increased robustness, which we believe counts as the second in the series, before the unveiling of the TicWatch Pro 3..
The price on the listing was originally set at £ 299.99 (around $ 400 / AU $ 545), but has since changed to £ 399.99 (around $ 535 / AU $ 745), suggesting a higher price for the next TicWatch smartwatch. As soon as something is formalized, we will of course keep you updated here.
