TicWatch Pro 2020 with Ubuntu Touch as a PineTime Pine64 device?
I m interested in Linux watch. I cam across the TicWatch Pro 2020. Posting here is a bit off-topic, but what makes a Pine64 device a Pine64 device? Does it need an Allwinner A64 processor?

I compaired the specifications of the PinePhone, the PineTime and the TicWatch Pro:

The PinePhone uses an Allwinner A64 processor, which has four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.152GHz and a Mali-400 MP2 GPU. Its frame and case cover is made of plastic. It contains a 5 megapixel back camera and a 2 megapixel front camera and a USB-C port with USB 2.0 that supports DisplayPort alt-mode

PineTime Smartwatch
  • Display: IPS capacitive touchscreen, 1.3 inches (240 x 240 resolution)
  • Communication: Bluetooth 5 Low Energy.
  • Sensors: Accelerometer and Heart Rate Sensor.
  • Battery: LiPo 170-180 mAh.
  • CPU: 64MHz ARM Cortex-M4F.
  • SoC: NORDIC Semiconductor nRF52832 (or nRF52840)
TicWatch Pro 2020 specifications
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100
  • Display: 1.39 inches AMOLED with 400x400 pixels resolution Gorilla Glass 3
  • Operating system: Google Wear OS
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 4GB internal storage
  • Bands: 22mm leather/silicone hybrid
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.2 LE, 801.11 b/g/n WiFi, GPS/Galileo/GLONASS/Beidou, NFC
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Heart Rate Sensor, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Ambient Light Sensor
  • Rugged ratings: IP68 dust/water resistant rating and MIL-STD 810G shock resistance
  • Battery: 415 mAh non-removable
  • Dimensions: 45 x 45 x 12.6mm and 222 grams
  • Colors: Shadow Black and Liquid Metal Silver

There is custom ROM for the TicWatch Pro available. It is quiet advanced with 402 pages:


The TicWatch Pro has a touch display, and it should be possible to run Linux on Android on it, and therefore Ubuntu touch on Android. With such an advanced custom ROM, it should also be possible to access the watch buttons and control those from Ubuntu touch.

What do you think about this project?
