The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra is an improved version of the TicWatch Pro 3 and in terms of design – it looks much the same. It’s a rather minimal, no-nonsense look with the clean look of the body being contrasted with an almost carbon-like ring surrounding the screen and the two hardware buttons to the side. 

What’s improved here is the build and it’s tanky as all hell. It goes so far that along with an IP68 water resistance the watch even sports a MIL-STD-810G military standard for its ruggedness and durability. The same philosophy extends to the strap which is made out of fluoro rubber. Since we are talking about a 22 mm strap, you’ll easily find alternatives should you want to switch things up a bit and go with a different look. 

The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 1GB of RAM so navigating the UI is super snappy and very satisfying. Even when you fill out most of its 8 GBs of storage space, the watch will not slow down one bit. The inputs are very responsive, apps open up real fast, and waking the screen either via a tap or a gesture never misses its mark. 

The Pro 3 Ultra goes a step further with its tried and true secondary FSTN screen which is stacked on top of the AMOLED. To put things in perspective, the normal, AMOLED screen will give your around 3-4 days of normal use on a single charge while the essential mode which exclusively uses the FSTN screen will keep it going for a full month or even more. 

Now as for the software, the Pro 3 Ultra comes with Wear OS 2.33 which, despite being outdated doesn’t detract from the user experience one bit. While not exactly ideal that Wear OS 3 is not here right away, the Pro 3 Ultra is on the shortlist of watches set to receive the update sometime during 2022. so the software experience is bound to get even better with time. For more on the design, performance, and all-around usage of the Pro 3 Ultra, check out our full video review.

Summary
Despite it being pricier than direct competitors, The TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra is well worth the 300$ asking price. It's an all-around premium experience and a flagship-grade watch that Android users can't go wrong with. Its tanky build, excellent performance, and great battery life are only bound to get even better once Wear OS 3 rolls out which is currently the only thing keeping it from being near perfect.

Amazing watch overall but trash build quality. If I’m paying premium price I expect atleast stainless steel body.
