Globally launched the HarmonyOS 3 update for Huawei’s latest smartwatches. The affected devices are the Watch 3 and 3 Pro, as well as the GT 3 and GT 3 Pro models, as well as the slightly modified GT Runner for sports. The HarmonyOS 3 system will not bring any very spectacular changes, but according to Huawei’s promise, the watch’s software will respond faster to certain tasks — for example, quick reactions to notifications will improve — and, in addition, the operating time will be longer.
It is a novelty that the previously China-exclusive respiratory health monitoring option is also available in the classes. In practice, this means that the watch compares several monitored health characteristics, including, for example, blood oxygen level, pulse, body temperature, breathing frequency, and the Health application compares these with other data of the user, such as age, body weight, frequency of movement, and then sends a warning if it believes that the user is exposed to a disease from the data processing.
Also new is that the kaleidoscope dial will be available among several new ones, and when the flashlight function is turned on, the display color will be changed from the standard white. Those whose watch has not yet indicated that HarmonyOS 3 can be installed can expect the software update in the coming weeks.
