Expert’s pick: Here’s why the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro is one of the best eSIM smartwatches of 2021

Among all wearables, the smartwatch is a gadget that has remained in the public consciousness for years and has been genuinely gaining popularity – perhaps slowly, but surely. Smartwatches are incredibly useful because they not only tell you the date and time but are also capable of doing a bunch of other stuff like keeping you connected via calls and messages, track your fitness, monitor your health, and deliver a range of different notifications from the apps downloaded on your smartphone, among many other useful features.

If you want the top smartwatch, you are looking for a real jack of all trades. You need a watch that will keep you connected to the world around you, look good to the extent of matching any outfit you wear, feel good when you wear it for long hours, monitor your health, track your efforts when exercising, last for a long time between charges, and pack useful tools like alarm, timers and reminders to help keep you at the top of your game.

Huawei recently announced the launch of the HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro, which bring convenient and smart life experiences that are underpinned by enhanced interaction, independent connectivity, and all-scenario interconnectivity. If you are on the lookout for grabbing a new smartwatch in the UAE, then you must surely have the new HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro in your radar, and here is exactly why.

The most elegant eSIM smartwatch with long-lasting battery life

Mobile phones undoubtedly have brought more convenience to everyday life. However, when you are out for outdoor activities, you may find it rather inconvenient to bring your phone along with you. Noting this user pain point, the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro supports a standalone communication system. By activating the eSIM service on your phone, you can use the same phone number on the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro, while enjoying the same data and voice tariff plans on your smartphone. Moreover, the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro features an ultra-long battery life, supporting five-day battery life in smart mode and providing 21 days in ultra-long battery life mode.

The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro strikes a balance between smartwatch and traditional watch aesthetics. The polished stainless steel watch body is adorned with a pane of ultra-curved 3D glass and a large display, culminating an elegant design for the smart timepiece series. The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro is the first Huawei smartwatch to come with a 3D rotating crown that offers tactile feedback. Thanks to the high-precision finger movement recognition, users can zoom in and out of images, and slide across the menu options accurately with utmost ease.

The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro is made of an aerospace-grade titanium fused with sapphire glass lens that guarantees durability. This smartwatch is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions and the test of time, offering an incredible level of protection at any given moment.

HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro debuts with a more expansive selection of watch faces that provide options for users to personalise their smartwatch with a wide range of innovative and interesting themes including technology, gaming, DIY, and short videos.

All-day health monitoring

The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro is a professional fitness monitoring assistant, offering over 100 workout modes, skin temperature detection with the new high-precision temperature sensor, fall detection, and SOS alert. Coupled with health monitoring features such as heart rate monitoring, 24-hour SpO2 monitoring, and sleep and pressure tracking, the smartwatch’s comprehensive feature set allows you to always stay up to date on your health.

Super Device smart experience

Thanks to its Super Device capabilities providing a truly intelligent experience across all types of scenarios, HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro users can connect directly from the convenience of their smartwatches to several smart applications.

Huawei has collaborated with many local, regional, and international entities to release their apps1 into the HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro, such as Emirates, one of the world’s leading international airlines; talabat, one of the leading food delivery apps in the region; Jeeny, one of the popular ride-hailing apps in Saudi Arabia and Jordan; and Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC), one of the largest taxi operators in Dubai and subsidiary of the Dubai Government Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). These are the first partners to see their apps running on the new HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro.

Huawei and Emirates have worked closely to provide HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro users with a seamless and convenient experience while using the app on the newly launched smartwatch: users can now retrieve their trip details by simply entering their booking reference directly on the smartwatch without the need to use their phones. Once their booking is retrieved, they will be able to receive updates related to their Emirates booking and flight status with a simple glance at their wrist.

In addition, when using Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) or the ride-hailing app Jeeny, HUAWEI WATCH 3 and WATCH 3 Pro users will be able to view the status and notifications of their rides while on the move, straight from the smartwatch. When ordering from talabat, the smartwatch converts to a smart assistant by tracking and notifying users on the status of their food order.

Also available to download on HUAWEI WATCH 3 series via the AppGallery is Petal Maps, which provides convenient navigation directly in the smartwatch, making it more accessible than ever for users who are walking or cycling to check directions with a glance at their wrist.

The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro also supports Smart Hand Gesture Control2, which intelligently senses various hand gestures. For instance, you can answer an incoming call by releasing a clenched fist with a raised wrist.

100+ workout modes to cater all types of users

The HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro offers upgraded sports monitoring feature, providing over 100 workout modes including 17 professional workout modes, 12 outdoor workouts (running, walking, mountain climbing, hiking, cross-country running, cycling, open water swimming, triathlon, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and golf driving range), and 7 indoor workouts (walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, free training, elliptical machine, and rowing machine). No matter what sports you are interested in, the HUAWEI WATCH 3 is ready to take the challenge with you.

Additionally, the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro features high-precision multi-mode GNSS which supports GPS, Beidou, GLONASS, WATCH 3, and QZSS, so it not only receives more satellite data for positioning but also makes motion recording more reliable and motion trajectory more accurate.

Thanks to the powerful hardware such as 3D engine, particle engine, video decoding capabilities, and iGraphics rendering engine, the whole-new informative, gaming, and personalised animated watch faces offer a unique look on the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro.

In a nutshell, if you are looking for a new smartwatch that truly crosses all the boundaries set by other smartwatches in the market, then the new HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro is the way to go. That’s why it is one of our top choices for the ideal smartwatch in 2021!
