There are so many smartwatches in the Saudi market today. But only a few of them qualify to be really good smartwatches. But if you are looking for the perfect one that ticks all the boxes, a simple good smartwatch might not make you happy. For that, we need to find “the crème de la crème.”
To get things started, there are a few things that make a great smartwatch. The most important of them all is the design because a smartwatch is, after all, a watch and, therefore, a statement on its own. Then you have to look at the battery life and health features, as smartwatches today have become the ultimate health companions. Keeping these in mind, let's compare two new smartwatches from two tech giants: the newly launched HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro with the latest Apple Watch Series 7.
HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro vs Apple Watch 7
The design of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro is reminiscent of classic luxury watches, and it uses remarkable high-end materials to accompany that look. The watch comes in Titanium and Ceramic Editions. The Titanium Edition is equipped with a titanium metal case, sapphire glass lens and ceramic back case and employs luxury grade polishing to create a premium finish. Similarly, the Ceramic Edition uses elaborate craftsmanship and polishing techniques to achieve a soft and elegant look. The result is a dazzling smartwatch that exaggerates feminine features.
Complementing the high-end design of the watch is the moon phase complication that allows you to observe the different phases of the moon. Being a complication only found in high-end watches, it adds to the luxurious look and feel of this smartwatch. Besides, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro Ceramic Edition features an exclusive flower dial with dynamic effects that shows various shapes of flower that changes with time. The vivid blossoming of flowers not only symbolises the passage of time in a fascinating way but also adds a fun twist to its presentation.
The design of the Apple Watch Series 7 hasn't changed much from its predecessors. It's still the techy-looking rounded rectangular watch. The most significant upgrade this time around is the larger screen, which allows more information to fit on the screen. In terms of materials, it comes in stainless steel, aluminium and titanium.
The enhanced battery architecture provides HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro Titanium Edition with 14-days battery life and 7-days battery life in intense usage scenarios, while the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro Ceramic Edition with 7 days battery life in typical scenarios and 4 days battery life in heavy usage scenarios. The long battery life ensures that users can wear it all day long and even when sleeping. What makes it even better is the support for wireless fast charging that can charge up the watch for a full day of use in just 10 minutes.
The 18-hours battery life of the Apple Watch 7 is enough to get you through the day. But it becomes challenging if you want to use the watch for sleep tracking. Also, you will have to remember to charge it up every single day.
Health Management Features
In terms of health, HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro series offers all-round health management in heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen, sleep, respiratory health, and pressure, which helps keep tracking the changes in your body. With the HUAWEI Health App on the phone, you can synchronise real-time exercise and health monitoring data to pay close attention to the health of you and your family. HUAWEI TruSeenTM 5.0+ does not only further improve the accuracy of heart rate monitoring but also improves the accuracy of SpO2 monitoring
The Apple Watch Series 7 has all the same health tracking features as the Series 6. While Apple haven't added any new health features to the watch, they have refined the existing features to make them more accurate. These include features like blood oxygen measurement, ECG, heart rate monitoring, low heart rate notifications, fall detection, sleep monitoring, etc.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro inherits the excellent DNA of the GT Series with rich sports modes and comprehensive upgrades in hardware and software capabilities. It also comes with an upgraded workout-monitoring feature, providing over 100 workout modes, including numerous professional workout modes. Besides, it is equipped with a new cool Free Diving Mode: The watch achieves the EN 13319 standard, a ground-breaking diving-level waterproof performance, which can support free diving at up to 30 metres deep, accompanying its users to explore underwater wonders.
The Apple Watch Series 7 has some good fitness tracking features too. The watch can track several different workouts, including running, walking, strength training, and cycling. The cycling detection feature was added to the watch through the latest software update, and it is available in some of the previous models, as well. However, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro stands out with the addition of the professional Free-Diving mode and the diversity of its workout features.
The HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro outperforms the Apple Watch 7 in multiple key areas. Firstly, the premium design of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro is outstandingly gorgeous! Second, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro has up to two weeks of battery life, which is remarkable and so convenient, in addition to all the super interesting health management features to help you stay on top of your health. Also, one of the biggest perks of the HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 Pro is its compatibility with Huawei devices as well as other Android and iOS devices, and that really gives it an edge over the Apple Watch 7 too.
