Unboxing: Huawei Watch GT 3 and Huawei Freebuds Lipstick

November 22, 2021

Classic, feminine, yet rocking. I think that is how I would define my style and aesthetics. Imagine my excitement when I unboxed the new HUAWEI Watch GT 3. But that is not all, HUAWEI also launched a luxe HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick (yes, earbuds in lipstick packaging). 💋

I have been a user of Huawei Smart Watches for almost 2 years. I always use my Huawei Smart Watch (currently the Huawei Watch 3), because of its All-Day Health Management features that allow me to monitor my sleep, stress, heart beat and exercise. The only times I would wear my dresswatches is when I need to feel girly, or when I am wearing a formal outfitt. If there is anything that I would want is for the Smart Watch features to be in a classic and luxe design. And that is exactly what the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 is all about.


Unboxing: HUAWEI Watch GT 3 Smart Watch

For the curious tech enthusiasts, the HUAWEI WATCH GT is inspired by the automotive industry. GT in Italian is Gran Turismo, meaning long distance travel and in English as Grand Tourer, referring to high-performance luxury station wagon.

The HUAWEI Watch GT 3 inherits the excellent DNA of the GT series, with comprehensively upgrdes on its hardware and software capabilities for the sports and health features, catering to people who are accustomed to wearing traditional watches.

Unboxing the HUAWEI Watch GT 3, it comes with the smart watch unit, charger, and paperwork.

First Impressions: HUAWEI Watch GT 3

HUAWEI Watch GT 3 is one of the beautiful smart watches that I got to unbox. I am over the moon thinking that it has both the features of my HUAWEI GT watches, and the exquisite design that speaks my style and aesthetics.

The front case of the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 is made of stainless steel, which makes it more refined and luxurious like a traditional watch. I like that it has a curved button that is less likely to accumulate sweat, allowing more accurate sensor monitoring.

The Milanese watch strap is an exclusive strap for HUAWEI Watch GT 3 42mm. I like the unique knitting process and the polishing of the stainless-steel mesh. It doesn’t have a specific lock, but the material is magnetic, making it fit and silky to wear. Despite its material and make, the HUAWEI WATCH 3 is light and easy to weat at 35 g (without strap).

One of the new interesting features is the rotating crown which is has a fine sensibility allowing you to check on health data or exercise records even under the water. It even gives a precise light vibrations, adding to the whole smart watch experience.

The HUAWEI Watch GT 3 has 1.32 inches AMOLED Colour Screen which is bright and fine even under sunlight. The ultra-clear 3D high transparent curved glass provides a full visual tension on every focus point. It has 352 ppi of
pixel density
. All contents are displayed to be more dedicated, without graininess. I compared it with my HUAWEI Watch GT 2, and I can see the difference in the screen and resolution.

New Improvements and Features

The HUAWEI Watch GT 3 has significant updates on software to accompany the beautiful aesthetics. Here are the features that I am excited to explore and experience with my new HUAWEI smart watch.


With HUAWEI TruSeen 4.0, it provides more accurate heart rate monitoring and single test to all-day Sp02 monitoring. This also helps in lowering the power consumption, bringing a more comprehensive all-day health monitoring.


HUAWEI upgraded its design from the original 4 PhotoDiodess increased to 8 PhotoDiodess, with two light source. The Fresnel film’s interference reduced by 66% compared to single channel. This provides dynamic heart rate and all-day health monitoring.


Little things can make a big difference, and it is true with the addition of Fresnel Film between the PD, LED and the bottom glass. This provides a better condensing effect, so that more light will enter the dermis and obtain signals from the capillaries during the process and reduce the interference of light signals in the superficial layers of the


HUAWEI TruSeen 5.0+ can obtain more channels of signal combination. Based on this, Huawei designed a new multi-channel signal selection and fusion enhancement algorithm, enhancing the deep AI learning noise reduction algorithm. When the user is in motion, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 can better obtain the optimal signal from the multi-channel of signals.


Even in scenarios with rapid heart rate changes such as intermittent running and accelerating running, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 can perfectly keep tracked it with the PPG 5.0 Module feature.

In addition, the The HUAWEI TruSeen 5.0+’s powerful anti-interference and noise reduction design can better adjust with the motion noise caused by irregular movement, and improve the accuracy of heart rate measurement in the when working out, including HIIT, yoga, aerobics, skipping rope, etc. I am excited to use it for my yoga sessions.


HUAWEI addressed the concerns with looose wearing by improving the signal and innovative multi-channel signal adjust algorithm. Conditions such as low temperature, plateau, and low perfusion are also considered.


This is an interesting feature for the runners. After the outdoor workout is completed, the GPS track will automatically generate a running route. This can be shared with your friends so they can join the competition, or serve as an added security in case you are going alone. It also guides you on your route back in case you get lost.


HUAWEI Watch GT 3 42mm offers 7-day of long battery life in typical usage. For someone like me who is lazy to charge phones and gadgets, this is real good nes. The longer battery life ensures users can wear it all day and use it continuously, even during sleep.

The HUAWEI GT 3 also supports wireless charging, allowing you to charge your phone using a HUAWEI smart phone.


One of the exciting features that I want to explore is professional training advice which allows users to arrange the training intensity and time, and improve the quality of training. Of course, HUAWEI is keeping the voice assistant in the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 which is helpful in keeping me push further in my workout routines.


It is exciting to know that I can play my favorite music via the HUAWEI Watch GT 3 which comes with a large amount of storage space (up to 500 songs). When connected via Bluetooth, users can control the smartphone to start, pause, play previous song, play next song, or adjust volume through the smartwatch’s music control interface. My purple heart is happy.


Aside from the All-Day Heart Rate Monitoring, I really love the Sleep Monitoring feature of the HUAWEI smart watch which detects the sleep duration (including naps, light sleep, deep sleep, REM). I mainly use it for understanding my sleep patterns, equipped with reports and suggestions. The Sp02 Monitoring is also convenient and helpful, especially in this time when the lockdown is easing up. It is always good to understand our body through these sensors and reports.

Aside from these features, HUAWEI Watch GT 3 also supports menstrual cycle monitoring which is helpful for girls like me who need to manage my schedule.


Although I mostly do basic exercise routines and yoga/barre, it is good to have 100+ workout modes ready and available when I need it. HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 offers an upgraded workout monitoring feature, providing over 100 workout modes including 18 professional workout modes, 12 outdoor workouts (running, walking, mountain climbing, hiking, cross-country running, cycling, open water swimming, triathlon, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, free training and golf) and 7 indoor workouts (walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, free training, elliptical machine, and rowing machine

When I set-up the HUAWEI Watch GT 3, it easily boots up – thank you to the Harmony OS operating system. As I have the Huawei Health app installed on my mobile phone, I instantly connected it via Bluetooth, and I am ready to explore how it would make my lifestyle and fitness journey a lot more balance and engaging.

I will be sharing with you my review of the HUAWEI Watch GT 3, so please stay tuned. Make sure that you are also following me @ruthilicious on Instagram for more stories.

HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick

Another exciting product from HUAWEI that just launched today, is the HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick. A true combination of stunning design and powerful technology, the HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick offers impressive audio quality in a neat, sophisticated packaging.

The Design of HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick comes from Huawei’s first aesthetic research center in Paris. It is influenced
by French fashion including global luxury, romantic. It is interesting to know that HUAWEI FreeBuds Lipstick design reflects the nobility and luxury of the product with the gorgeous stainless-steel body. While the square strip design is a tribute to tradition and modern time. The corners are not sharp, but rounded; and the magnetic case opens up with a rich red earbuds.

At first look and feel, it really resembles lipstick. I love how the HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick brings me back to the beauty of preparing for a night-out. It is not just beautiful to look at, but also good to feel (and even smell). There is a fragrance in the packaging that inspires romantic ritual. I love this little detail that completes the overall experience.

Some features that I am excited to explore includes the dual-microphone noise cancellation, which can effectively pick up environmental noise. Together with the AEMoise cancellation technology it will automatically select the most suitable set of noise cancellation parameters. . With noise cancellation turned off, it offers 22 hours of music playback with the fully charged charging case or 4 hours of music playback with the fully charged earphones.

I am excited to use the HUAWEI Freebuds Lipstick and have a little fancy date with myself.
