But first, let us run down the specs. It features a 1.43-inch AMOLED color touch screen, an unspecified SoC, 4MB RAM, 4GB of storage, 455mAh battery with quick charge, and a stainless steel case with 5ATM water resistance.

In the Philippines, the 46mm is priced at PHP 12,999.

At first glance, the Watch GT 3 looks like a more polished version of the previous Watch GT 2. The case body is made of stainless steel while the bottom is made of plastic that holds the sensors. On top of the case is the touch screen with a glass panel.

Thematerials used make it solid to touch while making it lightweight. The fit and finish of the metal case and metal buckle are superb.

It uses a 1.43-inch 2.5D AMOLED color touch display. 

The 46mm watch measures 45.9 x 45.9 x 11 mm and weighs 42.6 grams without the straps.

Initial set-up is easy and straightforward. However, you will need to download the Huawei Health app. It is available for Android 6.0 or later, iOS 9.0 or later, and HarmonyOS 2.0 or later.

During the initial set-up, we immediately noticed the responsiveness and accuracy of the touch screen.

Huawei says that the key features of the Watch GT 3 are the all-day blood oxygen monitoring (which is rare in 2021), long battery life, and advanced health-focused software features. The company says that the bigger 46mm can last as long as 14-days.

The Huawei Watch GT 3 is looking to be a great premium smartwatch offering for people who prefer a larger 46mm form factor while having premium build quality, design, and long-lasting battery life. 

It is also compatible with Android and iOS, so you don't need to be locked in the HarmonyOS ecosystem.
