Live better with smartwatches: HUAWEI Watch GT 3 and Watch GT Runner make a splash

Self-health management has become one of the most important features people have come to look for in a smartwatch.

WITH how saturated the smartwatch market is, it can be hard to nail the one that meets all your needs. It’s true that people had their doubts about smartwatches when they first came out, but they have since gained popularity.

Believe it or not, smartwatches are worth owning. If getting notifications or alerts at a snap of the wrist sounds appealing to you, the great news is that there’s probably a smartwatch out there for you. And you can customise it to your lifestyle – whether it’s having that ease of functionality, form factor, or even just a style preference.

A couple of great options that launched today (Nov 20) are the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 and the HUAWEI Watch GT Runner. These new kids on the block arrive to deliver an upgraded, more powerful and convenient user experience, with the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 becoming more dynamic and intelligent.

A smartwatch is almost akin to an extension of the wearer’s body, as well as being a pairable smartphone accessory. Since you’d probably have your smartwatch on you all day, the mini computer can work as your smart assistant, helping you to actively manage your health through various intelligent applications.

For health enthusiasts, it also needs to be comfortable to create a comfortable wearing experience, accurate GPS and workout guide apps, so HUAWEI’s answer is the Watch GT Runner.

Moreover, the Watch GT 3 boasts a fashionable appearance, comprehensive upgrades and new user interface (UI) design. It also comes with accurate health and fitness monitoring with TruSeenTM 5.0+, 14-day battery life with new design and an Intelligent Dynamic Adjustment Plan to make sure you almost always have a charge.

The HUAWEI Watch GT 3 oozes style whilst carrying that classic timepiece aesthetic, whereas the Watch GT Runner is a sporty fitness wearable that’s lightweight.

Now, you could be thinking: Which of the two should I get? Let’s break it down.


The Watch GT 3 gives you among the best battery life out of all the smartwatches in the market. You can last up to a week with the Watch GT 3 42mm model and up to two weeks with the 46mm model.

The long-lasting battery life enables you to wear it all day with continuous use. You can even sleep in it, if you need to monitor your sleep patterns. Additionally, it can keep track of your oxygen saturation (SpO2) levels all day.

The smartwatch comes with a rotating crown for responsive and tactile feedback, offering high-precision finger movement recognition. Without the straps, the Watch GT 3 weighs in at only 35g for the 42mm model and 42.6g for the 46mm model to give consumers a “lighter and thinner” wearing experience.

Not forgetting the added upgrade in health monitoring capabilities, the heart rate monitor’s accuracy of the Watch GT 3 is greatly improved with this new release. Now it’s able to perfectly keep track of even the most intense cardio sessions like rope skipping, sprinting, and swimming.

For a more comprehensive overview of your health, this smartwatch is able to provide an all-day, real-time and accurate SpO2, sleep, stress and menstrual cycle monitoring features.

The Watch GT 3 supports personalised health and fitness features, including the AI Running Coach and Healthy Living Shamrock, which is HUAWEI’s health and fitness assistant for users to stay healthy and active.

Meanwhile, the Watch GT Runner comes with a futuristic scientific running programme, with the Running Ability Index and Individual Periodical Science Training Programme allowing users to accurately evaluate their performance in any physical activity and improve it through a personalised training programme.

If you ever needed a hand in achieving your workout goals effectively and efficiently, then the Watch GT Runner might be the one for you.

Naturally, the Watch GT Runner also comes with a heart rate monitor that has also greatly improved in tandem with the more athletic aspect of the smartwatch.

As for those who love the great outdoors, the Watch GT Runner is the first of its kind to implement a patented design of suspended hidden antennas. This hides the positioning antenna in the lugs made of polymer fibre material to reduce the interference received due to any metal materials. It also supports the dual-band GNSS five-system positioning chip to deliver highly accurate GPS.

HUAWEI’s brain power: HarmonyOS

The HUAWEI Watch GT 3 and GT Runner both run on HarmonyOS 2.1. The UI interface is clean and easy to navigate and comes with all the basic first party apps.

In terms of functionality, the new HarmonyOS 2.1 further enhances the overall user experience on your wrists and keeps a unified design with other products running on HarmonyOS like HUAWEI’s smartphones.

What’s the recap?

In short, the Watch GT 3 comes in two different sizes, 46mm and 42mm where their difference is notable in the heft, display and long-lasting battery life.

And for sports enthusiasts, the Watch GT Runner is the smartwatch of choice since it’s packed with more professional running modes and more suitable for those with active and rigorous lifestyles.
