Huawei Watch 3 Pro – The Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro was not only the best-looking wristwatch on the market, but it was also a steal at €299.
Huawei, not willing to rest on its laurels, has released the Watch 3 Pro, a wristwatch that retains everything that made its predecessor excellent while also adding a slew of new features as the firm transitions its wearable range to HarmonyOS.
The Huawei Watch 3 Pro follows in the footsteps of its predecessors in terms of build quality. Titanium is used for the housing, ceramic for the back, and sapphire glass for the top. The combination results in a gadget that is both light and sturdy.
The top glass appears to be unprotected, but it should be scratch-resistant, and the bottom ceramic feels solid. The top glass sits seemingly unprotected but should be impregnable to scratches and the bottom ceramic feels smooth as silk to the skin.
The Watch 3 Pro comes with both a silicone and a metal strap, unlike last year’s GT 2 Pro, which had a unique Fluoroelastomer rubber strap. The strap is a standard 22mm size, like with prior Huawei watches, allowing for a simple exchange if you prefer leather to the two materials available.
This time around, the new charging cradle includes a USB cord. If you lose the cradle or need a backup, the Huawei Watch 3 Pro may be charged with any Qi-compatible wireless charger you have on hand.
The Huawei Watch 3 Pro features a sharper display and a totally new operating system, Harmony OS 2.0.
The watch has a noticeable zippier feel about it. Raise to wake or tilt to wake (if you wish to see your watch while sitting at a desk) are, for example, faster than previously. The display is also substantially brighter, with Huawei claiming a brightness of up to 1000 nits.
Huawei has improved the OS while maintaining its familiarity. Swiping down from the top of the watch brings up settings toggles, while swiping down from the bottom brings up notifications.
Weather, activity tracking, heart rate, and other information are still shown on customisable, side-swipeable panels. However, a new grid of applications may be accessed by pressing the new rotating crown. By rotating the crown or using touch motions, you may zoom in and out of the grid.
The bottom button may be modified to open any app or option, although exercises are the default.
Along with blood oxygen metering and heart rate monitoring, Huawei has included skin temperature tracking. Skin temperature, as the name implies, monitors the temperature of your skin’s surface rather than your core body temperature. Its efficacy is debatable, although a significant shift in skin temperature might indicate internal alterations.
Finally, the Huawei Watch 3 Pro is available with standalone 4G connectivity with eSIM support, allowing you to leave your phone at home and stay connected via the watch.
What’s more striking is Huawei’s boast of a 5-day battery life while connected to 4G and up to 21 days when not.
