Already rich in three references (Watch 3, Watch 3 Pro, Watch GT 3), the 3 series of Huawei watches welcomes a new representative: the Watch GT 3 Pro. Replacing the GT 2 Pro, it brings an extra dose of luxury to the Watch GT 3 and is enhanced at the same time with specific characteristics.
Titanium or ceramic depending on the size of the watch
First of all, in terms of design, Huawei opted for noble materials: titanium for the 46.6 mm version (46.6 x 46.6 x 10.9 mm), nanocrystalline ceramic and golden steel bezel for the 42 .9mm (42.9 x 42.9 x 10.5mm). The first case weighs 54 g and has Viton leather or fluoro rubber straps, while you can choose leather or ceramic for the second the case weighs 4 g less.
Behind a sapphire crystal, the Watch GT 3 Pro Titanium has a 1.43 ”Amoled screen, while the GT 3 Pro Ceramic is content with a 1.32” screen due to the more compact case. The latter should also be satisfied with an autonomy of up to 7 days, half the size of the Titanium version and its larger battery.
The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is of course packed with sensors of all kinds: accelerometer, gyroscopic sensors, compass, optical heart rate sensor, barometer, GPS, temperature sensor and SpO2 sensor. The sensors are used to monitor health, sleep and stress, but also for more than 100 sports modes mixed.
Sports modes including golf and diving
Exactly in question of sport, among more than 100 integrated sports modes, Huawei has promoted the golf course mode in its GT 3 Pro, including hundreds of courses (more than 300 in China). The watch is able to display maps of the ground and show wind speed and direction, but also to analyze shots and give posture advice. Of course, it records the various shots taken during the course and performs a technical analysis when completed.
Thanks to reinforced waterproofing (IP68 and 5 ATM), the Watch GT 3 Pro is also intended for swimming, although Huawei states that its watch complies with the EN13319 diving standard and supports snorkeling at depths of 30m. A specific diving mode is also included, with the watch showing the depth reached, the climb, the speed and the duration of the dive, without forgetting the safety reminders so as not to forget the ascent time. It also allows you to practice apnea. Despite this improved water resistance, the manufacturer does not recommend the use of the watch in hot springs, hammams, platform diving and other activities where water pressure can be high.
Full of health functions with ECG analysis
In terms of health, the biggest innovation is in the possibility of carrying out electrocardiograms (ECG) using the GT 3 Pro, thanks to electrodes arranged on the sides of the watch. Huawei has also introduced TruSeen 5.0+ heart rate monitoring technology based on 8 photoelectric sensors on the back of the watch. There is also sleep monitoring (TruSleep 2.0) and stress (TruRelax).
Prices are in line with services
With such finishes and so many sensors and functions, we didn’t expect a cheap watch. The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is actually shown at at least 2,488 yuan (€ 355 excluding tax) in the titanium version and 2,988 yuan in the ceramic version (€ 427 excluding tax). A clear high-end position, more so with the Watch GT 2 Pro launched by Huawei in France in September 2020 at € 299.99. We will have to wait even longer before knowing the presence in France and the euro prices of this Watch GT 3 Pro which will have to offer impeccable services to face the competitors in this price segment.
