The new Huawei Watch GT 3 comes in an elegant casing made of stainless-steel. The back, where the sensor is centrally located, is made of plastic. We tested the 46 mm version of Huawei Watch GT 3. It is also equipped with a considerably larger battery compared to the more compact 42 mm variant. The case is 11 mm thick (42 mm variant is slightly thinner) and weighs a good 42 g (42 mm: 35 g) without the interchangeable and 22 mm wide strap.
For our test, we had the Classic Edition with a silver-colored case and the elegant brown leather strap on hand. It looks especially good with classy outfits. We also find the more expensive Elite Edition with a stainless-steel strap quite classy, while the Active Edition with a black fluoro-elastomer strap looks much sportier.
The smaller 42 mm variant, which is aimed primarily at female customers, is available with either a black fluoro-elastomer strap, white leather strap, or gold-colored Milanaise strap, and a matching case.
A microphone and a speaker are integrated for the telephony function discussed below. Besides the smartwatch itself, the scope of delivery includes a manual and the charger. The charger has an approximately 80 cm long USB-A cable and is magnetically attached to the underside of the watch. A power adapter is not included. Alternatively, any Qi charger or reverse charging function on the smartphone can be used, which is quite practical.
