Huawei Watch GT 3 receives a software update that enables the option of connecting heart rate straps
Last month, Huawei released the Watch GT 3's first software update, a smartwatch that it announced in October. The update added a few features, including an option to set 'Healthy Living' lifestyle goals. However, the company has now announced a second update, which it is already distributing in Europe.
Spotted by Huawei Blog, this month's update 'optimises system stability in specific situations', a phrase that Huawei includes in almost all its changelogs. Additionally, it enables support for connecting heart rate straps, as the screenshot below shows. Currently, you can connect the Watch GT 3 to the Polar H7 or the Suunto Smart Belt.
This month's update brings the Watch GT 3 to Harmony OS 184.108.40.206, up from 220.127.116.11. The update is a 75.39 MB download and is available through the Huawei Health app. Please note that you can only use last month's 'Healthy Living' feature with an Android smartphone. As it stands, the feature does not work with iPhones, nor does the ability to customise automatic SMS replies.
