The only advantage of 4100+ processor over the 4100 is less battery consumption on AOD display. But what's the point on a TicWatch Pro that its main selling point is the secondary lcd screen with the 3 days battery efficiency...??

Qualcomm 5100 is not yet out, you can check their official website

There is little point for people to upgrade from a smartwatch with a Snapdragon Wear 4100 series chipset to the 4100+. All that this adds is another energy efficient co-processor, which "should" help save battery if Mobvoi takes advantage of it (Or if it just works), but as for raw power, nothing has really changed. It's the same main chipset with just an added energy efficient co-processor. Raw performance is most likely minimally affected.

Wear os means battery hog. Use tizen os or basic os smartwatch like amazefit.

Notebookcheck put this to the test and purchased a Ticwatch with 4100+ off Amazon. It was advertised as having sd4100+ but came with non plus variant. I won't trust Mobovi with my money especially as Notebook check reached out to them about the issue but they didn't respond

The only time you will want a rectengular watch is for notifications and answering those. Then again even on rectengular watches keyboards are pretty much unuseable. Samsung has a great handwriting option and apple and android do have great speech to text.
Whats left is, that watchfaces just look so much more appealing on round watchfaces. Since thats what you see most of the time (with AOD on I see it nearly 24h a day) - I prefer round watches and live with the shortcomings of that shape, which arent many.

Now that the new Qualcom Snapdragon 5100 is out... months ago... they come out with the earlier version (4100+) of the SoC?! Why is there such a lead/lag time in releasing the latest with the latest chipset? Damn, that is so frustratingly stupid!

On Apple Watch, it only changes if there is huge slab of white surface. Otherwise they look identical in active and AOD mode. Or has that changed with recent Galaxy Watch 4 ?

You may think so, but when you own one, it is never an issue. And the usability is far nicer on the Apple Watch. Plus you can install superb watch faces, some free and customize them. With AW, not much selection. Further on the Samsung (not sure about TicWatch), you can simply turn the bezel to browse menus - very intuitive and fun. I'm getting a Samsung Watch 4, or the TicWatch if it is as fast and reilable as the Samsing.

I don't know why I'm not a huge fan of round smartwatches. I have bunch of regular watches and I love their round shape, but not on smartwatches where you're expected to do useful stuff with the display and that works best with rectangular shape. I really liked ASUS ZenWatch 1 and 2 and if they only made bezels smaller they'd be amazing. And of course Apple Watch where Apple stubbornly sticks with rectangular shape and I like it too (though ASUS had a sleeker case design if I'm honest).
