Huawei has released a new update bringing HarmonyOS 4 to the Watch GT 3. The latest software brings a range of features to the smartwatch, such as protection against accidental screen touching and workout data customization. Plus, there are optimizations to app icons and alarm clocks.

A new update, version (SP1C00M13), is rolling out to the Huawei Watch GT 3. Like software version, which arrived for the GT 3 Pro in February, it brings HarmonyOS 4 to the smartwatch. Given that the release has a similar version number, it is not surprising that the change logs for these two versions are almost identical.

With version for the Watch GT 3, there are new features like the ability to view the names of apps in the grid display. Also listed are a new accidental touch prevention feature, workout data and widget layout customization and an automatic wake function. Plus, there are a range of optimizations, such as improvements to the zooming and swiping effects relating to app icons and clearer text on the display. The complete change log notes can be found below.

Huawei software version is 138 MB in size. It is unclear whether all Huawei Watch GT 3 users can access this latest update at this time. To check if it is available, ensure you have the newest version of the Huawei Health app, then look under Settings > System & updates > Software updates.
