Smart watches are getting more and more enthusiasts along with healthy lifestyle trends. Of the many smart watches on the market, the Huawei Watch GT 3 stands out with its premium features and design. How is this Huawei’s latest smartwatch capable? Check out his review as follows.
Huawei Watch GT 3 Desain Design
Huawei Watch GT 3 looks very premium and elegant. There are two sizes available, 46mm and 42mm. The body material is stainless steel. Huawei has also designed the body to be waterproof to the 5ATM standard. So, you can be invited to swim and don’t have to worry about getting hit by water.
For the unit we are reviewing the following size is 46mm. The body design is also relatively thin. Its thickness is only about 11mm. Its weight, which is around 42 grams, feels very light. For the 46mm size, this is indeed more ideal for male users. It looks more premium and elegant, combined with a brown leather strap with a size of 22mm.
The material of the leather strap is very good with genuine leather. Indeed, this strap is not ideal for sports activities. For sports fans, the strap option with silicone rubber material can be an option. Like the previous generation, the strap carries a quick release style. So, it can be removed very quickly and easily.
Huawei’s attention to design is increasingly visible through the presence of a crown with Huawei Watch GT writing engraved and buttons on the side of the body. The dimensions of the crown are very proportional to the body design. Meanwhile, the buttons below are relatively flush with the body and are not too prominent. One plus the crown is also functional. Not just a sweetener to boost the appearance alone.
Pressing crown once will take you to a row of application icons. If rotated will increase or decrease the size of the application icon. Or, it can also be used to scroll the screen display down or up if you don’t want to touch the screen. Meanwhile, the buttons below it can be customized as needed to run the selected application.
Shifting to the back, you can find LEDs and sensors. The sensors it carries include a heart rate sensor, a sensor for monitoring blood oxygen levels and a sensor for measuring body temperature.
Huawei Watch GT 3 screen
Huawei Watch GT 3 brings an AMOLED display panel measuring 1.43 inches for the 46mm size. The screen resolution is 466 x 466 pixels. The display on the screen is brilliant. Sharpness, color, and brightness are excellent. The contrast is also very high. Above the average other smartwatch in general. Making it ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
The screen is okay, it is also supported by a series of cool watch faces. It’s a shame that Huawei doesn’t provide watchface customization options. However, in our opinion, the standard watch face design on the Huawei Watch GT 3 is much more varied and interesting when compared to the previous generation.
One drawback of AMOLED display panels is the relatively wasteful power consumption. To get around this, the Watch GT 3 has a raise to wake feature. If this mode is active the screen will only be active when the hand is raised. Very effective for saving battery power usage. The Always-on-Display option is also available for those who want the screen always on. But, keep in mind that this option will consume more battery.
Features of Huawei Watch GT 3
Like the previous generation, the Huawei Watch GT3 still prioritizes fitness features. This smartwatch brings a very complete variety of sport modes. There are more than 100 sports modes available on the Huawei Watch GT 3. For those who like running, Huawei also now features an AI Running Coach feature that can be relied on to guide and monitor the progress of your running sport in detail.
Huawei Watch GT 3 also carries Huawei TruSeen generation 5.0+ heart rate monitoring technology. This technology can monitor heart rate and oxygen saturation (SpO2) better and more accurately than ever before in real time throughout the day every day. Uniquely, as long as we use the heart rate tracking feature and oxygen saturation in real time, it doesn’t seem to affect battery power consumption significantly.
To support sports activities, the Huawei Watch GT 3 is also supported by a Dual-Band GPS module. From our tests, this GPS module has more accurate route and distance tracking capabilities. The ability to connect to GPS is also much faster when compared to the Huawei Watch GT 2e smartwatch we used before.
Another interesting feature on the Huawei Watch GT 3 is that it features a music player, breath to train breathing, stress monitoring, and sleep pattern monitoring. There is also a Healthy Living feature that can be used to help start habits and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Huawei Watch GT 3 Performance
The Huawei Watch GT 3 is Huawei’s first smartwatch to run the HarmonyOS operating system. The interface is very simple. Very easy to use even for users who have never used a smartwatch before. All animation effects that appear on the screen also look very smooth.
As long as we use it almost no lag at all. This makes the experience of using the Huawei Watch GT 3 even more enjoyable. One plus, thanks to the HarmonyOS Huawei Watch GT 3 now supports third-party apps. Currently, it supports relatively few third-party applications. Hopefully it will continue to grow in the future.
Some of the tests we did to see how far the performance of the Huawei Watch GT 3. In sports testing we used the Huawei Watch GT 3 for cycling sports. As a result, this smartwatch can accurately track our cycling sports activities.
Huawei Watch GT 3 can record distance traveled, speed, heart rate, duration, and calories burned during sports activities. This information can be displayed directly on the screen. Or, it can also be viewed on the phone via the Huawei Health app after the workout is over.
The SpO2 sensor it carries is quite accurate. Although it can not be recommended for medical needs. At least, you can get an idea of the level of SpO2 in the body everyday and during exercise if needed.
The sleep pattern tracking feature is also capable. Huawei Watch GT 3 is able to track sleep patterns consistently and accurately. The displayed information regarding sleep value and quality can also be viewed in the Huawei Health app. The reviews are very detailed and informative without having to pay more to subscribe to premium services like other smartwatches.
Huawei Watch GT 3 . Battery
Huawei has also succeeded in proving that the Huawei Watch GT 3 can still save power. This smart watch does promise a usage time of up to 14 days for a single battery charge. From our tests, for daily use without using the Always-on display feature and using it for sports twice a week the battery life can last up to 12 days. Quite impressive considering the screen uses a very brilliant AMOLED panel.
The Huawei Watch GT 3 is indeed a near-perfect smartwatch. Not only is the design very premium, the features it brings are also quite complete.
As a smartwatch, its ability to monitor fitness is very capable. The sports modes it carries are numerous. The battery is also economical. Ideal for smartwatch users who don’t want the hassle of recharging the battery.
Most important is the selling price. The price, which is in the range of 3 million Rupiah, in our opinion, is very commensurate with the design and a series of premium features that it brings. There’s no denying that the Huawei Watch GT 3 is the best Huawei smartwatch you can buy right now.
