2. Support turning on the backlight through the power button in the essential mode. 

3. Support turning off the essential screen’s auto-backlight in the Essential Mode app. 

4. Enable the notification sound (Can be adjusted in Settings –> Sound –> Ring volume).

In terms of improvements, Ticwatch Pro 3 users will be happy to know that the new update not only improves the speed of the tilt to wake screen but also improves the smoothness of sliding and improves pairing speed for Android phones.

Other improvements provided by this new update include:

1. Solved the issue where sometimes the steps in the essential mode might be partially lost after restarting.

2. Optimized the responsive area at the edge of the screen.
