The Huawei Watch GT 3 is a fitness-oriented smartwatch that looks great, and feels fast and responsive thanks to a new processor. It’s packed with an impressive array of health tracking tools too, and offers truly remarkable battery life – particularly if you opt for the larger 46mm version.
That longevity doesn’t come at the expense of features, and the watch’s array of biometric sensors track heart rate, SpO2, skin temperature, stress, and sleep. Huawei has given its optical heart rate monitor an upgrade this time around, and the results are impressive; changes are detected quickly during intense interval training sessions, and accuracy rivals that of dedicated running watches.
There’s support for five satellite navigation systems as well, which should make for more accurate location tracking in areas where there’s a limited line of sight between you and the sky. In our tests it wasn’t quite as accurate as Garmin’s GPS when it came to mapping out our pre-measured route, but was definitely sufficient for recreational running.
