Which is Better?

Although, both Gen 5E and Ticwatch Pro 3 have sturdy and elegant designs, Ticwatch Pro 3 is clearly a better smartwatch.

You can also store music on any of these two.

However, Ticwatch Pro 3 which compared favorably to Galaxy Watch 3 is equipped with the 4100 chip which alongside the 1GB RAM boost performance significantly. It also has a larger display, more storage and more health tracking features which include breathing, stress, and handwashing apps. Ticwatch Pro 3 features SpO2 blood oxygen tracking which can help you see how well your blood utilizes oxygen. Moreover, Ticwatch Pro according to a user’s experience can last over two days with smart AMOLED display activated and over a month with the FSTN essential display. In other words, Ticwatch Pro 3 has a longer battery life than Gen 5E which has about a day battery life.

On the other hand, Fossil Gen 5E is a cheaper alternative and a decent smartwatch with a stylish design.
