Huawei WATCH 3 Review Rundown
Huawei Watch 3 isn't just another smartwatch — it's one of the most important products to come from Huawei in a while. The Watch 3 ditches the old software used on the Watch GT2 for HarmonyOS, Huawei's self-developed operating system we've heard a lot about but until now have not had a chance to use. While it's fast and well designed, it takes a great deal of effort and commitment to get it working with your phone.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
As far as specs go, the Huawei Watch 3 is solid. The watch also has 2GB of RAM, which makes for snappy app loading and swiping between menus. But the lack of third-party app support means this is simply a more visually appealing, glorified fitness tracker.
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Watch 3 is one of the best-looking smartwatches you can buy. It ditches the old software used on the Watch GT2 for HarmonyOS. HarmonyOS is Huawei's response to being unable to use Google Services on its mobile products. To sync the Watch 3 with your Android phone, you have to download Huawei Health, but not Huawei Health from Google Play.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Watch 3 marks a break from the norm for Huawei, running neither Wear OS nor the company's own Lite OS. The result is an umbrella operating system, HarmonyOS 2.0. In smart mode, features like 4G support via an eSIM enabling call functionality, third-party app downloads, online music streaming, and more are made available. The Watch 3 Pro upgrades the materials, switching out for sapphire glass and higher-quality titanium body.
