With Galaxy Watch 4 and Apple Watch 7, Fossil also introduced its latest flagship watch with “Fossil Gen 6”. This smartwatch is loaded with advanced features from fitness tracking to GPS tracking.
Because of its upgraded features, Fossil Gen 6 can compete with Tic Watch Pro 3 GPS, and it isn’t easy to choose the best option without reading a guide. That’s why we write this guide to find out some major differences between Fossil Gen 6 and Ticwatch Pro 4.
Fossil Gen 6 VS Ticwatch Pro 3: Display & Design
Fossil Gen 6 kept the same display that usually appears in Fossil watches. On the other hand, the Ticwatch Pro looks more durable as compared to its predecessors. So let’s have a look at both devices.
Fossil Gen 6
Fossil Gen 6 comes with a beautiful and big display that looks more attractive. This time Fossil added a high-quality Aluminium bezel that makes the watch more durable. But the design is almost the same as the Gen 5 watch.
You will get three buttons on the side to navigate through menus and start/pause any activity.
Although Gen 6 is durable, it offers 3 ATM water resistance body which may be its downside because you can’t do deep swimming wearing a Gen 6.
When it comes with straps, Fossil Gen 6 offers interchangeable straps so you can adapt the color of your outfit. Polycarbonate material is used to manufacture this watch, and by default, the strap is made of silicon.
This time Fossil added a 1.28″ AMOLED display with 326ppi density, which looks very vibrant, and I love its display. Because of the high resolution, you can easily read the dial under direct sunlight.
TicWatch Pro 3
Ticwatch Pro 3 looks more durable than Fossil Gen 6. It has a 48mm case size and 12.2mm case thickness. The stainless steel body increases its credibility and makes it a little bulky, but overall this watch is more comfortable because of its premium silicone straps.
Two buttons at the side help you to handle functionality.
Luckily, you will get a 1.4″ touch screen color AMOLED and LCD dual display in this smartwatch. The AMOLED display resolution is 454 x 454, which feels pretty bold and vibrant. So you can also save battery life by using an LCD at certain moments.

On the other hand, Ticwatch Pro 3 offers Ticwatch Pro 3 uses a Snapdragon Wear 4100 that uses a lot of battery, but still, this smartwatch will last for 72 hours in smart mode. And if you enable its battery saver mode, it will give you 45 days of battery.
So we can say that the Ticwatch Pro 3 beats Fossil Gen 6 in the battery life department.
Fossil Gen 6 VS Ticwatch Pro 3: Price
Both Ticwatch Pro 3 and Fossil Gen 6 fall in the mid-range smartwatch category regarding price. As compared to their predecessors, both watches have high costs, but it’s not too much.
