Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro vs Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro 5 Comparison

Mobvoi disappointed its fan base when it failed to introduce the promised WearOS upgrade to its select watches.

It’s 2023 now, and we are still waiting for the upgrade to happen.

The company however released a new watch named Ticwatch Pro 5 this year that runs on the latest WearOS.

While WearOS remains the highlight feature of this model, it boasts plenty of other smarts. More on that later.

In this Ticwatch Pro 5 vs Galaxy Watch 5 Pro comparison, we are basically trying to figure out which Android watch offers the best bang for the buck.

But hold on, there’s a small disclaimer. The Ticwatch Pro 5 has just hit the market, so we’ll need some time to thoroughly review it. Once we’ve put it through its paces, we’ll update this comparison to give you the full scoop.

Now, without further ado, let’s dive in.


With different price tags based on size and connectivity options, Samsung provides more flexibility to meet individual needs and budgets.

You can choose between the 45mm and 41mm sizes, as well as LTE or Bluetooth connectivity, all at varying price points.

The price ranges from $279 to $349. Here is a complete breakdown of the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.

ModelSizeConnectivityPrice (Approx.)
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro45mmLTE$349
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro45mmBluetooth$309
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro41mmLTE$319
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro41mmBluetooth$279

This deserves appreciation as we know that competitors, like Garmin, charge the same price regardless of size.

On the other hand, the Ticwatch Pro 5 comes in a single size (50.1mm) with GPS functionality, priced at around $350.

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro takes the lead in terms of design and build quality. Its titanium case and sapphire glass provide superior durability and an elegant aesthetic.

On the other hand, the Ticwatch Pro 5 features a stainless steel case with gorilla glass protection, which may not be as robust.

In terms of size and comfort, the Ticwatch Pro 5 is noticeably thicker and bulkier, making it more suitable for larger wrists.

Moreover, the Ticwatch has dual display technology. It combines a full-color AMOLED display with an ultra-low-power display for improved battery efficiency. With slightly higher resolutions and pixel density, it offers sharper visuals compared to the Galaxy Watch.

However, we were not impressed with the aesthetics of the Ticwatch. This doesn’t come as a surprise when you consider this has always been the case with Mobvoi watches. The protrusion of the new digital crown can feel uncomfortable and may pinch the skin, while the upper button has seen a more streamlined design.

Considering all aspects, our preferred choice in this department is undoubtedly the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. It ticks all the boxes for durability, appeal, and comfort.

Both watches are powered by WearOS, and yet they can provide distinct user experiences. Samsung and Mobvoi have put their own spin on the UI, resulting in unique offerings.

They have more in common than one can expect.

They both excel at delivering essential features like notifications for calls, texts, emails, and various apps. Music control capabilities are present on both devices, allowing you to manage playback and volume effortlessly.

You can enjoy your favorite tunes via popular streaming platforms like Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Music, and YouTube Music. Navigation through Google Maps, and NFC payment functionality are also part of their shared repertoire.

However, there are some notable differences too.

The Ticwatch Pro 5 boasts superior hardware specs, suggesting a potentially faster performance. With nearly double the storage capacity, it’s a compelling choice if you plan to store music directly on the watch.

However, Galaxy Watch 5 Pro has one definite advantage. It offers optional LTE support, which if activated would allow you to make calls, send texts and respond to notifications even when your Android phone isn’t nearby.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro reigns supreme when it comes to advanced health tracking. Its exclusive Body Composition feature and FDA-approved ECG monitoring put it on par with industry giants like Apple and Fitbit.

However, it’s crucial to note that certain health features on the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are exclusive to Samsung phones. Plus, some features like ECG and Blood Pressure monitoring are subject to country restrictions, limiting their accessibility.

On the other hand, the Ticwatch Pro 5 offers a comparable suite of health-tracking capabilities, including heart rate, stress, sleep, and blood oxygen monitoring.

While its recent addition of AFib detection is noteworthy, the feature has a longstanding presence in Galaxy Watch models, and the company recently got an FDA clearance for its aFib detection.

Both watches offer built-in GPS for accurate tracking, but the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro takes it a step further with the ability to upload GPX maps. Plus, it offers auto-detection features on select sports profiles.

There are plenty of sports profiles on both watches, but none covers advanced sports metrics. Take for instance running where dedicated sports watches like Garmin and Polar go beyond just duration, distance, and pace to offer data like running power, vertical oscillation, stride length, and more.

They further top this with useful insights like recovery time, body battery, and real-time stamina to help users optimize their training.

Neither the Samsung nor the Mobvoi watch is going to offer the best precision or in-depth workout tracking, that you can expect from a dedicated sports watch.

The Ticwatch boasts a larger 628mAh battery, enabling an impressive 5-7 days of battery life with normal usage. You can extend this battery performance by taking advantage of the low-powered display of the watch.

In contrast, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro features a 572mAh battery, providing an expected battery life of 1-2 days.

However, it’s important to note that only the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro supports wireless charging, offering added convenience.

Final Verdict: Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

While the Ticwatch has the advantages of a faster chip and extended battery life, Samsung outshines it in almost every other aspect.

Samsung offers advanced connectivity features, superior build quality, and a broader range of fitness tracking capabilities.

Traditionally, pricing used to be a strong suit for the Mobvoi watches, but the latest Ticwatch has relinquished that advantage. Or we can say, Samsung’s pricing strategy has taken the cost factor out of the equation.
