Overall, the designs are similar to the classic Huawei watches but we are thrilled to know about the HarmonyOS addition in Huawei watch 3 and watch 3 pro. Without any further due we’ll start off with the specs and details these smart watches are offering.
Huawei Watch 3, Design, Additions And Battery
This generation of watches including Huawei watch 3 features an iconic 3D rotating crown. Huawei added this as an intuitive way which navigate the UI that this works better than touch screen, it’s weather resistant and even works with gloved hands. Another goal was to slim down the bezels on the Huawei new watches especially around the display. Talking about display, it is a 1.43 AMOLED that is significantly larger and brighter.
The watch is seamlessly made with a high quality ceramic at the back and the body is made of steel, whereas the glass top is cover with strengthened glass. Huawei made sure to manufacture a water resistant watch, as the Huawei Watch 3 is up to 5 ATM water resistant. Interestingly, the Huawei watch 3 supports video calls too, streams tunes from Huawei music and connects to Bluetooth headphones. The eSim allows the 4G data to run through and handle calls.
The standard battery life here is up-to 3 days but with allowing some basic apps you can stretch it up-to 14 days, with using work out modes, SpO2 monitoring , animated watch faces and Bluetooth calling. Speaking applications, Huawei proudly enables AppGallery here, with a 2Gb RAM and 16 GB storage. You can juggle with a lot of apps available and get the HarmonyOS apps directly without any smartphone support.
Huawei Watch 3 pro is on a classier side. The material, design and battery that will set the Pro apart. Digging right into the eye catching looks of this watch, the body is made up of titanium and the back is again of ceramic. This one bigger in size and the battery is longer too. The ultimate battery life of 4 days is promised by this device which could be stretched up to 21 days, and who wouldn’t want that. This is the first watch to feature the dual band GPS receiver with bands 1 and 5. That means even in dense environment this will provide answers of accuracy. The features are much similar like the sibling Huawei watch 3, the Huawei watch 3 Pro will support video calling through the Huawei’s very own MeeTime services. To make things less complicated the home screen is designed with a grid that shows apps rather than a list. Huawei has not placed a rotating bezel on this smart watch but there is a rotating crown that will entertain the users. The size of the Huawei Watch 3 Pro is 1.43 inch with OLED display, and peaking the level of brightness with 1,000nits and 60Hz refresh rate. The rotating crown is much similar to AppleWatches, we can say it’s clearly inspired. For the activity levels, as the Huawei watch 3, the watch 3 pro is featuring heart rate tracking sensor, an SpO2 sensor, sleep tracking but what’s new is the temperature sensor and that will come handy too. Huawei explained that the temperature sensor tracks the temperature of the body all day through the skin. With these sensors, Huawei Watch 3 Pro supports about 100 different workout modes that includes, cycling, trekking, swimming and much more. Also the eSIM returns in the watch 3 series which means the watch runs on its own 4G LTE support with a connection from a phone.
