Huawei Watch 3 Pro review. A beautiful watch, but the possibilities (yet) are not overwhelming

The bottom of the case is made of porcelain and has a black color. At the center of it we have a set of sensors. Right on the right edge there are four holes under which the loudspeaker is hidden. On the left there is a microphone opening.

This is a massive watch from the premium segment – there is no doubt about it. It looks great, and the construction made of high-quality materials will survive even more demanding circumstances. The whole thing is waterproof (class 5 ATM) and resistant to shocks.

Let’s turn it on!

It is said that clothes do not decorate a person. And in principle, this can be applied to a smartwatch, because while the premium appearance is sufficient in the case of “ordinary” (unintelligent) watches, we expect much more from wearables. The standards in this field have been set by Apple Watch for several years, so users looking for a smartwatch in the premium segment have specific expectations. Is the Huawei Watch 3 Pro able to meet them?

On paper, it might seem so, because we have a lot of communication modules here: 4G LTE (eSIM), WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS (with GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS). Thanks to the latter, outdoor training will not require a phone to get a full track record.

The system of built-in sensors looks just as impressive. Huawei called this mechanism TruSeen 4.5. It includes a 6 in 1 LED and 4 photodiodes. The sapphire glass lens is here to provide better light penetration, lower power consumption and greater comfort of use. In addition to heart rate, the watch also measures the level of SpO2, as well as body temperature. It also estimates our stress level. All this data is presented on eye-pleasing charts that can be viewed both from the watch and the Huawei Zdrowie application for managing our gadget.

All this is complemented by as many as 100 different exercise modes – 19 professional indoor and outdoor disciplines, and 85 custom modes. At the same time, the watch automatically recognizes the 6 most popular types of exercises (unfortunately I could not guess all of them).

Huawei Watch 3 Pro application

There were also such more obvious functions as a pedometer, sleep monitoring, notification support and music control. However, forget about integration with Spotify or other services. In general, when it comes to cooperation with external solutions, the watch communicates best with the Huawei phone (which is no surprise). We then have access to interesting functions, such as remote cropping of the photo and triggering the shutter release or integration with the MeeTime communicator.

The stairs begin when we want to use external applications. Their base is relatively poor – after all, it is limited only to those available in the Huawei AppGallery. Nevertheless, the mere presence of the store from the level of the watch bodes well. Perhaps some more applications will appear here over time. However, it is difficult to count on the most frequently used ones, such as Google Maps or Facebook Messenger.

Huawei Watch 3 Pro physical activity

The built-in microphone and speaker allow you to make calls from the watch, and it works relatively well. But forget about the effective use of eSIM. So far, none of the Polish operators supports this solution. Without the phone at hand, we will not connect anywhere. We will not use NFC either – the watch only supports AliPay payments, and we will not experience those in our country.

As a teardrop, we get a really large selection of shields – including the ability to buy premium shields that you can really like. Interestingly, many of them can be additionally personalized. This gives almost unlimited possibilities, and in combination with the Always-On-Display mode (here we have only a few dedicated dials to choose from) it looks great.

The whole system is also surprisingly smooth and responsive. In this respect, Huawei Watch leaves WearOS or even Fitbit watches behind, where this speed of operation leaves much to be desired.

The battery should theoretically last us up to 5 days of work. In practice, however, it is about 3-3.5 days. Of course, a lot here depends on our way of using the device. If we turn off Always-On-Display, this time can be slightly extended. Of course, workouts drain the most – especially those with GPS. Very active users will charge the watch every other day. And it is not a short activity, from 0 to 100 percent. charging takes up to 3 hours.

Drrrrrogo!

Huawei Watch 3 Pro is valued at PLN 2399. This is the price for the Elite variant described here – with a titanium bracelet. For PLN 1999, we can have the Classic version – with a leather strap. This is really a lot – especially when compared to other smart watches. Against their background, the Huawei proposal certainly stands out in terms of construction. This is undoubtedly one of the best (if not simply the best) made smartwatches on the market. Solid, chunky and great looking.
