Reviewers from gizmodo have found the following***:
The Watch 3 is a decent health and activity tracker, so long as you're OK with the occasional quirk or wonky app sync. The absolute worst, and I mean worst fitness feature, was the watch's tendency to broadcast my metrics every 10 minutes in a disembodied robotic voice. At £350, this is bordering on premium flagship prices.

Pros
  • Good health and activity tracking
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Not as good as the OnePlus Watch
  • Occasional app sync issues

-to-understand way, with plenty of depth for the serious sports addict. It's supremely comfortable, very well made, and packed with accessible health and fitness features. Like using a Huawei smartphone today, you'll have to get used to doing things differently, using different apps, and being patient as HarmonyOS grows. The Huawei Watch 3 costs 350 British pounds, which converts to around $483.
