The Watch GT 3 Pro is a clear statement from Huawei in the face of what it manages to create in the area of smartwatches. After many unique and increasingly interesting models, this is the watch that the brand wants to make as the market standard, especially in the field of design and functionality.
If at first glance this is a traditional watch, it is with its use and attention to detail that everything is revealed. This (almost) piece of art is now on our market, and because of this, Pplware will make known what makes it stand out and makes it unique.
A watch or a smartwatch? In fact, both
One of Huawei’s best bets is in the area of smartwatches. It has grown uniquely and is now one of the major players, thanks to the different models it has launched, always in a growing direction to what the Watch GT 3 Pro stands for.
This new proposal from Huawei plays an important role and is a big bet of the brand, by releasing new materials and new design lines. The 46 mm model has a titanium finish, already in the model dedicated to the female audience, there is a unique proposal of ceramics, something that is not common in other brands.
If, in fact, we see in the 46 mm model a well-known line in Huawei’s smartwatches, the truth is that it completely innovates and changes its design. With a solid and well-structured construction, it has details and cuts that stand out and elevate the central crown of this watch. It was possible to check this detail with the use we gave, highlighting in this case even more the counter.
This is clearly superior equipment, almost luxurious, but it becomes accessible and simple to use in everyday life. Solid, beautiful and well built, the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro brand is present for its sobriety and quality that emanates. Despite its size, this watch is not heavy and does not bring discomfort during the daily use to which it has been subjected.
Interestingly, we have been approached several times with questions about this equipment, especially about its design and its functionalities. This detail guarantees that the smartwatch will be another case of success for Huawei.
The model to which Pplware had access was the 46 mm, with leather bracelet, but the brand has several proposals in the same model, such as one version with a titanium bracelet and another with a fluoroelastomer bracelet nearby.

A unique design and noble materials always present
This smartwatch focuses on its unique design, where all the elements are grouped naturally. The sapphire screen is durable, with protection against risks, both for normal day-to-day use and for more aggressive situations.
On the right we have the only two buttons present, each of which has a different shape and function, being that the rotating crown of titanium is on the top and allows complete control of the clock.
From the use we have given, during the tests performed, it has become almost natural to use the crown to navigate the interface of the Watch GT3 Pro. The second button ended up being reconfigured for a more obvious functionality, this is because the sports aspect was not the most important for the user.
Below is a button / sensor, which allows access to the sport functions, configurable and customizable, but which assumes more functions. This is actually an ECG sensor that will soon be used to do an electrocardiogram.
The least visible part is even the bottom area, where Huawei has placed all the sensors that are in the Watch GT 3 Pro. In addition, we have the loading area, which is tidy in this area which is made of nanocrystalline ceramic, which guarantees permanent comfort.
During testing, this area never brought up uncomfortable or overheated. The materials present guarantee this almost imperceptible presence.
Autonomy for several days
One point where the Watch GT3 Pro stands out, following what Huawei has in the other models, is the battery. We managed to last 14 days in normal use, as promised by the manufacturer.
With wireless charging, it’s simple and quick to set up to charge and relatively quickly. In our tests, once again the values were in line with what is promised: 25% of the battery in just 10 minutes, or 100% in less than an hour and a half.
In the models dedicated to the female public, these values decrease slightly. We have 7 days of battery in a typical use and 4 days in intensive use and a slightly longer charging time.
HarmonyOS, App Gallery and apps are present
Huawei’s choice to support the Watch GT 3 Pro could only be one. We are talking about HarmonyOS which continues to be, from our point of view, a good choice. This version continues to give users the right items, without the need for essential extras.
Still, Huawei continues to invest in its system and wants to give it more. Proof of this is the ability to use apps that complement and elevate even more the offer we can use in this watch.
As with previous models, the GT 3 Pro bases all communication with the smartphone on Huawei’s Health app. It has grown and is the watch of the data collected and interpreted, as well as the management of clock counters and even installed apps.
Huawei’s experience in this area, the result of its several years of creating smartwatches and smartbands, is well present. The maturity of the app allows a simple and quick reading of the data, as well as the actual management of the linked equipment.
In the tests performed, a Huawei smartphone was not used and even the app had an irreproachable behavior. It was simple to find and install in the Android Play Store, just like in the Apple App Store, and connecting the Huawei GT3 Pro to your smartphone was simple, fast, and free of any complex procedures. Just read the QR code in the box of this watch and we were directed to the app.
At some point, either in the configuration or in the day-to-day use, there are any problems and the integration is transparent, both on Android and iOS. This looks like a native app and that gives a lot of freedom to the user who doesn’t have to worry.
Another interesting feature of the Watch GT 3 Pro is its ability to receive calls directly on the watch. These come via Bluetooth and guarantee a good conversation quality, as with the previous version.
In addition to all these features, sensors and a unique design, Huawei’s new smartwatch still has GPS and NFC. This is a legacy of previous models and in this they continue to be present and to be useful in everyday life.
The focus on the health and well-being of the user
Even being a classic watch and with all the features of a smartwatch, Huawei wanted to make the Watch GT 3 Pro a focal point for the collection of health information from users.
With a check of useful and essential information, we have in the Watch GT 3 Pro the measurement of heart rate, SpO2, sleep and stress monitoring. These items are used to monitor the user and can be permanently active and monitored.
Each of these streams of user health data is monitored in isolation and with special care.
When evaluating the data collected, either associated with sleep or with the measurement of heart rate and SpO2, the values are close to the real ones, some of which have even been verified by dedicated medical equipment.
A sporty side of an elite smartwatch
Something that could not be missing in the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is its entire aspect dedicated to sport, despite its premium appearance.
Huawei wanted to cover almost all areas of physical activity, and therefore guarantees that more than 100 activities can be monitored with the Watch GT 3 Pro. These are varied and focus on professional sports or a simple late afternoon run or a trip to the gym and the experience we get from using it shows just that.
Something that the brand wanted to highlight and make as a differentiating element were two sports. We are talking about golf, where professional data is recorded, such as speed and stroke time, backswing time and downswing time. There are still useful demonstrations and tips to elevate your game to a new patamar.
Another unique element is the dive, where the Watch GT 3 Pro has an IP68 rating of up to 5 ATM for water resistance and supports an impressive 200 cycles of water pressure. This ensures that it can be used in free dives up to 30 meters deep.
But is the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro even a true choice?
Huawei’s proposal stands out on two fronts, making it an almost obvious choice for anyone looking for a mole product. In addition, looking at the general market, this is also an equipment that defines standards when it comes to essential areas.
We are talking here about battery life, build quality and even health information that can be collected, processed and presented to the user. It is a proposal with a unique design and that stands out naturally in the long list of proposals that the market has.
The prices of the Huawei Watch GT3 Pro 46 mm are adjusted to what it offers and stands at 400 euros (black fluoroelastomer model or gray leather) or 520 euros (titanium model). Already the 43 mm model, is at 500 euros (white cabal) or 620 euros (ceramic model), the result of the use of ceramics, a unique building material.
Huawei is once again showing that it is body and soul in its area of smartwatches. Proposals continue to improve and gain functionality, with a unique design and features that place it at the top of consumer preference lists.
