Huawei Watch GT 3 Review

There’s something to be said for a gadget that’s reliable, looks good, and lasts for ages – and we found the Huawei Watch GT 3 to be all those things. It never crashed, there were no glitches, its health tracking, which we used mainly to track rowing workouts and gym sessions was great, and it lasted for absolutely ages.


  • Excellent battery life
  • Smooth interface
  • Premium design
  • No Apple Health/Google Fit syncing

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3

There’s a lot to love about the Galaxy Watch 3. It’s superbly made, very attractive, and its spinning bezel makes it a joy to use. Samsung’s Tizen OS is slick too, with lots of customisation and shortcut options to keep things feeling fresh – made all the better by its class-leading screen.


  • Gorgeous design
  • Crisp, vibrant display
  • Fun, innovative bezel controls
  • Clever fitness-tracking features
