Huawei has launched a new fitness orientated smartwatch, the Watch GT 3, with the help of new watch ambassador Sir Mo Farah.
Sir Mo launched the new Huawei Watch GT 3 at The Fore fitness and wellness studio in London, having been one of the first people in the UK to put the wearable through its paces. A household name, Mo is the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history, and the current world record holder for the 1-hour run.
“It’s become an integral part of my training,” he said “thanks to the accuracy of the heart rate and GPS tracking, making it easier for me to manage my workout with precision. Not only that, but it looks like a proper watch too, so it’s beautiful as well as functional!”
Powered by HarmonyOS 2.1, and available in 46mm and 42mm sizes, the Watch GT 3 boasts best in class battery life, up to 14 days between charges, a premium design aesthetic and a new interface design.
Key attractions include extensive health and fitness monitoring with TruSeen 5.0+ heart monitoring system, and an AI-powered personal running coach.

Huawei is positioning the Watch GT 3 as a personal trainer on the wrist, able to record and analyse your workout routine, that AI Running Coach offers a dynamically customised week by week training plan.
This includes over 100 workout modes including 18 professional workout modes, 12 outdoor workouts (comprising running, walking, mountain climbing, hiking, cross-country running, cycling, open water swimming, triathlon, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and golf) and 6 indoor workouts (walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, free training, elliptical machine, and rowing machine).
Standard smartwatch features include notifications, Bluetooth calling and music playback.
The Watch GT 3 combines a 466 x 466 resolution AMOLED screen with lightweight design; strapless, the 46mm version weighs just 42.6g with a thickness of 11mm, while the 42mm weighs 35g at 10.2mm.
Predictably, the larger model offers the best battery life, 14 days with typical use. The smaller model has 7 day stamina.

The GT3 also offers highly accurate dual-band five-system GNSS positioning, with support for GPS, Galileo, Beidou, GLONASS and QZSS satellites, so you’ll always have access to the most accurate location data.
