Strong smartwatch at a bargain price: The Huawei Watch 3 Active can do that

With the Watch 3, Huawei has launched a really good smartwatch that scores in almost all categories in the test. 

The Huawei Watch 3 at a glance
The Huawei Watch 3 is packed with everything that can fit into such a small smartwatch. The watch offers GPS, Bluetooth, WLAN and LTE (eSIM), among other things. 

In addition to the obligatory pedometer, the sensors include a position, acceleration and brightness sensor, a heart rate monitor, ECG, a measurement of oxygen saturation and even a fall detection. Of course, the smartwatch is also waterproof.

Technically, there is nothing wrong with the watch. However, the smartwatch has one drawback: since there is no connection to the Google Play Store, the selection of apps is very limited. If that doesn’t bother you, you’ll get a very good watch at a fair price.

Galaxy Watch 3 or Watch 3 Pro?

Technically, the watches are almost identical. However, the Pro model is a corner larger and thus also offers a more powerful battery. In addition, titanium is used for the case, while stainless steel is used in the standard model.

The Huawei Watch 3, together with its Pro counterpart, is the best Android smartwatch 

It deserves this position in particular thanks to its sharp OLED display, the extensive technical equipment including mobile communications, fall detection and water protection as well as a enormously long-lasting battery. Unfortunately, the absence of Google services also causes some limitations. NFC is therefore not usable outside of China and you will look in vain for Google Maps or even Spotify. But at least some of the annoyances can be avoided with a paired smartphone

The Huawei Watch 3 offers pretty much everything that currently fits in a smartwatch. Included are GPS, LTE, WLAN, an altitude sensor, a heart rate monitor and even a fall detection. What you have to do without, however, is a connection to the Google Play Store – the app selection is therefore limited
