Huawei has reinforced that it will be revealing the Watch 3 series on June 2, one of the company's first products to launch with HarmonyOS 2.0. Huawei has teased the Watch 3's design too, in what could be a departure for its smartwatch series.

Huawei has reiterated that it will be launching new HarmonyOS products on June 2. Initially, the company just dropped hints about releasing its latest OS, on which we have previously reported. However, now it has explicitly referenced HarmonyOS running on the WATCH3, as the company stylises it.

To date, there have been no leaks about the Watch 3's design, discounting Huawei Central's render. Huawei's teaser implies that the Watch 3 has a rotating crown, like the Apple Watch. The image below does not appear to be a button, so a crown would be the logical alternative, in our opinion.

Huawei also states that the Watch 3 is its return to flagship smartwatches. The company has released plenty of budget smartwatches and fitness trackers, but it has been just eight months since it announced the Watch GT 2 Pro. In saying that, the Watch GT 2 Pro was only a minor improvement over the Watch GT 2, a smartwatch that Huawei launched in September 2019. Hence, Huawei has not released a new flagship smartwatch in over 20 months, arguably.

Regardless, @RODENT950 claims that the device will support continuous body temperature tracking, coronary heart disease screening, a more accurate heart rate monitor, multiscreen collaboration with other Huawei devices and SpO2 monitoring. Additionally, @RODENT950 believes that the Watch 3 will be capable of taking an ECG and will have a built-in eSIM, presumably for LTE connectivity. It is unknown if Huawei plans to launch the Watch 3 globally, though. The company may do, although we doubt that there will be a simultaneous Chinese and global release.
