The Honor Watch GS 3 was originally pitched as a companion for the OEM's mid-2021 flagship smartphones with advanced heart-rate sensing tech. However, the wearable then failed to launch in full and has remained absent from online sales listings ever since. Now, it has reportedly materialized in a brick-and-mortar store in China, spilling more of its specs in the process.

Honor made repeated references to a new Watch GS 3 in the course of launching the Magic 3 premium smartphone range, thereby giving the impression that the wearable might be released at the same time as the flagship Android devices. However, this somehow never panned out, leaving the new device off the market ever since.

Now, however, it seems the OEM is finally ready to release the GS 3. The Weibo leaks channel HuaweiFans has posted photos of the watch snapped in a physical store, possibly near units of the recently-launched 60 and 60 Pro. The new leak shows the wearable from the front and the back, thereby apparently confirming its looks and "industry-first" 8-channel PPG heart rate monitor.

Despite this new features, HuaweiFans has also reportedly learned that the Watch GS 3 will ship without wireless charging, something the Weibo leakster now believes will set the watch at a more reasonable price-point. Then again, Honor has yet to confirm this.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
