It is surprising that there is no exact data on the battery capacity and nothing is said about the processor installed in the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro (in the second generation it was the Kirin A1, which was clearly indicated in the specifications).

We are here with Huawei’s newly released Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro review video. Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro, which comes with titanium and ceramic body options and has the ability to dive in 30 meters of salt and fresh water, let’s see what it offers us.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro features: Design

The 46mm Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro we reviewed comes with sapphire glass and its body is completely titanium. In the 43 mm ceramic model, the titanium areas come as ceramic.

The nanocrystalline ceramic back cover does not cause any discomfort on your skin, as it does not contain allergens.

With a weight of only 54 grams without a strap, the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is both light and quite sturdy. Of course, it is also a very stylish smartwatch.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro, which is resistant to 5 ATM pressure equivalent to 50 meters deep pressure, offers us the opportunity to use free diving mode in salt and fresh water up to 30 meters deep.

Screen

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro, which comes with a 1.43-inch screen, has a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels. The image quality and pixel density of the screen, which offers sufficient brightness under the sun, is quite successful. This smart watch, which has diving support, can also be used underwater. In addition, there are no problems such as incorrect pressing when entering the water.

Another essential feature of smartwatches is that they have a clear, sharp and bright screen. We must be able to read the screen in any light environment, whether it’s at dusk or under bright sunlight. The Huawei Watch GT3 Pro uses a 1.43-inch AmoLED display. In our trials, we found the screen quality to be quite impressive. As we said before, the screen with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels offers a clear and sharp image under all lighting conditions. The touch of the screen is also very sensitive and has an ergonomic use.

When it comes to software in smart watches, two elements should come to mind, and it is necessary to make the evaluation based on these two elements. The first is the software that runs inside the watch, and the other is the management software installed on the mobile phone, which displays the information from the watch to the user and is used to personalize the watch. We will look at these separately.

Huawei Watch GT3 Pro uses the HarmonyOS operating system developed by Huawei. The interface is extremely responsive and includes many applications that can be used for health, entertainment, daily tracking, gaming and personal time management. From this point of view, such applications are already indispensable for a smart watch, but the biggest feature of the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro is its fitness and health tracking options. We’ll take a closer look at these features in a moment.

On the mobile phone side, connection to the watch, management, data transfer and data viewing are carried out through the Huawei health application. This app supports both Android and iOS operating systems. In other words, it is not necessary to have a Huawei phone to use the watch efficiently. While it works very well with Huawei phones in terms of ease of use, it also pairs and works seamlessly with other Android phones and iPhones. You can download apps directly from AppGallery to the watch.

Hundreds of watch face options are coming with the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro. Whether you prefer a simple watch interface or display all your health information, weather, etc. and get extremely expressive and elegant watch faces made by artists. All this can be downloaded and tested on the watch via a mobile phone. We found support for the remote shutter, music player, calendar sync, alarms and Bluetooth calling to be pretty good.

Supporting both Apple and Android ecosystems is among the pros of the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro.

Fitness features

The sensors on the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro not only make it a complete health tracker, but also the diving mode, which was announced for the first time with this series and which we had the opportunity to experience a lot, is an option that is seen for the first time in the smart watch world and makes a difference. Since there are diving and free swimming modes, the following question must come to your mind. How waterproof is this watch, and can it withstand salt water? The Huawei Watch GT3 Pro is resistant to a depth of 30 meters, works without problems in salt water, and its sensors work successfully both under and above water. Of course, as we all know, salt water is the archenemy of electronics, but the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro demonstrates a particularly successful step in this area. However, from a traditional point of view, we say that it is useful to rinse with fresh water after getting out of the sea.

In diving mode, Huawei Watch GT3 Pro can record the depth of the dive, the distance swimming under and above the water, heart rate and other information at the same time. With its dual-channel location tracking on it, it offers a clear position and route accuracy in all exercises, especially in open sea swimming.

More than 100 exercise modes, 15 of which are professional, are offered to users who want to exercise and stay healthy. These modes, which come with clear explanations and support, allow the user to carry a personal assistant, trainer and consultant with them while doing almost any kind of sports. It can also work in sync with popular professional exercise apps like Strava, Runtastic and Komoot.

Although it is not very popular in our country, the professional Golf mode, which is another innovation that comes with the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro, contains options that will help those who want to improve themselves in this sport where the correct grip and hitting is very important.

Charge

The thing that I pay the most attention to in a smart watch is charging. Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro, which offers up to 14 days of battery life, offers a battery time of 8 days in full use. The battery life varies between 14 and 8 days, especially depending on the intensity of using the health monitoring functions and sports modes. I’ve been using it for about 5 days and now the charge is 52 percent.

Thanks to its 30 percent faster charging feature, the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro can charge faster than the previous generation Huawei Watch GT models. Thus, it is possible to use it for a full day with a charging time of 10-15 minutes. By the way, you can also charge the watch with Huawei’s models that support wireless reverse charging.

The Watch GT 3 Pro family, which was introduced recently, has managed to become a model that draws attention in terms of both design and durability, thanks to the titanium material used in the 46 mm case model and the ceramic material used in the 43 mm model.

In addition to the design, the Watch GT 3 Pro series, which attracts attention with its diving mode, also managed to make a sound with the ECG recording feature added to the health tracking details. Since the ECG function is not available to the general public at the moment, you cannot access this feature when you take your watch out of the box. The reason for this is the necessary approval processes of an important data such as EKG, but there is an alternative solution for those who want to activate the ECG function in the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 Pro model. So, how is ECG used in the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro series?

First of all, let us remind you that you must have the Huawei Health app to benefit from the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro. Huawei Health app can be downloaded from AppGallery, Google Play Store and App Store. In this way, you can easily use the Watch GT 3 Pro series on Huawei phones, iPhone models and other phones with Android operating system. To activate the ECG function, you need to use a different method.
