Huawei has announced a mid-generation refresh of the Watch 3 Pro, now available with HarmonyOS 3. Also, the revised smartwatch features turn-by-turn satellite navigation, allowing you to leave your smartphone in your pocket. The Watch 3 Pro 2022 edition can take an ECG too, as well as featuring SpO2 and skin temperature sensors.

Huawei has introduced a new version of the Watch 3 Pro, officially called the Watch 3 Pro new. As expected, the revised smartwatch comes with more features than its predecessor, plus the latest version of Huawei's in-house operating system. According to Huawei, the Watch 3 Pro is only available as a 48 x 49.6 x 14 mm smartwatch and weighs 64 g without a strap included. In part, the high weight is because of the smartwatch's case materials, which combine ceramic and titanium.

Additionally, the Watch 3 Pro new has a 1.43-inch AMOLED display that operates at 466 x 466 pixels with a 326 PPI, matching its predecessor. Likewise, the smartwatch is compatible with 22 mm straps, is 5 ATM water resistant and supports eSIM connectivity. For some reason, Huawei continues to avoid confirming the smartwatch's battery capacity. However, the smartwatch supports up to 10 W wireless charging.

While the above is a carbon copy of the original Watch 3 Pro, Huawei has included ECG functionality, as well as the option of using the smartwatch for turn-by-turn satellite navigation. It remains to be seen whether the latter will arrive on the original Watch 3 Pro though, via an update to HarmonyOS 3, which debuts with the 2022 edition. Similarly, Huawei has not confirmed whether it intends to sell the Watch 3 Pro 3 new globally. Until then, Huawei will sell the Watch 3 Pro for CNY 2,999 (~US$443) with a leather strap and for CNY 3,699 (~US$547) with a titanium one.
