HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series Available in Singapore Now

HUAWEI WATCH 3 Series is now available. It is the first Huawei’s eSIM smartwatch, and running on HarmonyOS. If you purchase now, you can enjoy free gifts worth S$126.

I am actually holding a review set right now. Will do a full review soon. In the meanwhile, you might want to take note that there are 3 models in the WATCH 3 Series. They are the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Active Edition, HUAWEI WATCH 3 Classic Edition and the HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro Classic Edition.

Technically, the WATCH 3 Active and Classic are similar except for the wrist band (and pricing). The WATCH 3 PRO Classic comes with longer battery life and higher price tag.

All of them are eSIM enabled. Pricing are as follows: –

  • HUAWEI WATCH 3 Active Edition: S$548 (Comes with Black fluoroelastomer strap)
  • HUAWEI WATCH 3 Classic Edition: S$598 (Comes with Brown leather strap)
  • HUAWEI WATCH 3 Pro Classic Edition: S$698 (Comes with Brown leather strap)

If you have owned a Huawei Smartwatch before, do take note that the WATCH Series 3 has only 3 days of battery life (smart mode) for the Active and Classic version and 5 days of battery life for the Pro Classic version.

This is something that you need to get used too. However, if you compare it with competitors’ smartwatch in the market, they are comparable or slightly better.

Check out the Press Release for more details.
