In recent years, Huawei has been focusing on not only PC-related products but also wearable products. Especially popular are smartwatches that offer an excellent balance between functionality and cost. Among them, the latest model “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro” has appeared in the “HUAWEI WATCH GT Pro” series, which uses plenty of high-quality materials and is easy to match in the business scene. The lowest price on Kakaku.com is 39,744 yen (as of September 14, 2022).
We tested the more powerful “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro” for about two weeks and reviewed its usability.
Luxury design that satisfies the desire to own
The HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro, released at the end of July 2022, uses plenty of high-quality materials for all parts that make up the smartwatch, such as the case, glass, and belt. As a Huawei smartwatch, it’s a little pricey, but when you actually pick it up, it feels like a great deal.
The main body case is made of titanium, which combines luxury and high strength, and looks like an analog watch. Also, from this model, the specification has been changed to operate with the crown on the upper right of the main unit and the oval button below it.
The display size of the previous model was 1.39 inches, but the size of the “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro” has been increased to 1.43 inches. After all, the larger screen size makes it easier to check the values while moving, such as running, as well as everyday use.
However, as the size increases, the weight naturally increases. The weight of the “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro” is slightly increased to 58g, compared to 52g of the previous model. However, since this series sells a sense of luxury, compared to general smartwatches, the series is fairly heavy from the beginning. This may be a disadvantage due to the abundant use of high-quality materials. Nonetheless, I personally didn’t care about the weight when wearing it.
Battery lasts 14 days of normal use
Battery life is an important indicator when purchasing a smartwatch. The battery operating time of this machine is up to 14 days in the catalog specs. In my case, I tried using the default setting that keeps measuring heart rate, stress, etc. in real time. Driving GPS by running for about an hour decreased by 4 to 5%. I’ve been using it for about two weeks, but I don’t have the impression that I need to worry about charging.
Enhanced health care, workout mode
Next, let’s explain the health care and workout modes of “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro”. This unit is equipped with Huawei’s unique heart rate monitoring technology “HUAWEI TruSeen 5.0+”. It covers everything you can do with other smartwatches, such as lifelogs such as steps and calories burned, real-time heart rate, blood oxygen level, sleep tracking, and stress levels.
As a feature of this machine, it is not just a simple measurement, but it is equipped with a function that is useful for health management, such as recommending breathing training to relax and calm down when the stress level increases. .
In addition, items such as “lactic acid threshold” and “running ability index” that were installed in another model of running smart watch “HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Runner” are now available. The lactate threshold is for intermediate and advanced runners, where the watch gives instructions to run as close to the limit as possible. On the other hand, the running ability index judges “running ability” from the heart rate, pace, frequency, etc. measured in normal running, and predicts the best time when running a full marathon. It has a wide range of functions that can be used by runners of all levels, from beginners to advanced users.
Unfortunately, golf and diving are not my specialty, so this time I tested the usability of running in workout mode. As usual, I started running in the city center where buildings are lined up and ran on the embankment. I checked the GPS acquisition speed and the accuracy of the acquired data.
It doesn’t just say, “Move your body!” It can be said that it is a smart watch that supports you to live a healthy life.
“HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro” has high functionality that covers almost all the functions used in Huawei smart watches so far. In addition, the titanium case enhances luxury and durability, and the texture of the watch is also improved.
Compared to other Huawei smartwatches, the price is a little high, but the smooth operation of the OS “HarmonyOS” makes it a satisfying finish whether you are using it or owning it. I think that it is an ant watch as one of the options for people who do sports on a daily basis and are looking for a smartwatch that is easy to match with the business scene. In addition, there is also a “classic model” that uses a leather belt that stands out for its high quality, so if you are looking for a higher quality than the “active model”, this is also a must-see.
