There are new additions to Huawei Philippines’ wearable lineup. The technology giant launched the Huawei Watch GT 3 in 42mm and 46mm options and Huawei Watch GT Runner smartwatches, in addition to the Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick open-fit wireless earbuds.
(Update, December 6: Our review of the Huawei Watch GT 3 is up!)
The new devices will be available for preorder until December 9 at the following prices:
- Huawei Watch GT 3 42mm: P11,999 or $237 (but starts at only P8,999 or $178 during the preorder period, and comes with P2,490 or $49 worth of freebies)
- Huawei Watch GT 3 46mm: P12,999 ($256) with freebies valued at P3,998 ($79)
- Huawei Watch GT Runner: P13,999 ($276) with freebies worth P4,388 ($87)
- Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick P11,999 or $237 (but will go on sale for only P9,999 or $197 during the preorder phase)
Similar to other entries in the series, the Huawei Watch GT 3 is designed more like a traditional watch, sporting a round metal frame with bright and vibrant AMOLED screens, premium accents, and a rubber or leather strap depending on the variant. The 46mm edition still offers 14 days of battery life on a single charge, whereas the smaller 42mm model is rated for up to seven days of usage.
More importantly, the latest models build on their direct predecessors in the tracking department and debut Huawei’s TruSeen 5.0+sensor, which promises better accuracy when tracking your heart rate and blood-oxygen saturation level.
As the name suggests, the Huawei Watch GT Runner has better tracking and health-monitoring capabilities particularly suited for runners, though it also inherits most of the GT 3’s features, including its round OLED display. It runs HarmonyOS instead of Google’s own Wear OS.
As for the Lipstick, Huawei’s interesting wearable sport a stainless-steel body and an open-fit design, with dual-mic noise cancellation onboard. The latter will automatically select the best noise-cancellation preset based on the background noise level.
The FreeBuds Lipstick claim to offer up to 22 hours of continuous music playback with the charging case. Like the new smartwatches, they run HarmonyOS out of the box for easier pairing and seamless connectivity with other Huawei devices.
