Lighter, thinner, and fashionably square

HUAWEI has launched several revisions of the HUAWEI WATCH FIT series since 2020. Each generation carries the spirit of fashionable, lightweight design with a scientific approach to health and fitness management. The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 3 continues this spirit with a design ethos that caters to the pursuit of a trendy appearance and innovative functionality that conveys an energetic and casual lifestyle.

Being ultra-light and ultra-thin at 26g and 9.9mm respectively, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 3 provides an exceptionally slim and comfortable wearing experience. Tom Morgan-Freelander from praised the slim profile, comparing it against similar products in the market, saying, “It’s thinner and lighter than either a Fitbit Versa 4 or an Apple Watch SE, at just 26g for the watch body and only 99mm at its thickest point.”

This design enhances the watch’s premium feel and fashionable appeal, offering consumers a stylish accessory to complement their outfits while providing advanced functionality on their wrists. Tom from continues to share that, “It looks and feels like a more expensive model, even though pricing hasn’t actually gone up compared to the previous generation.” James Stables from Wareable added: “The Huawei Watch Fit 3 is designed to be unisex and slim – and it pretty much achieves that in style.”

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 3 also boasts a super-large 1.82-inch HUAWEI Hybrid AMOLED display, with 347PPI and automatic brightness adjustment up to 1,500 nits. The unique stepped design around the edge of the display also accentuates the size of the display, making it larger and making it “pop”. 

This means that information like notifications, workout data, and your favourite watch face is highly visible in most situations, from workouts to meetings and beyond. Jonathan Bray from Expert Reviews praised that, “The screen is larger, brighter and sharper than you get with the Fitbit Charge 6 – I had no problem reading it while out on a run – and the UI is super responsive.”
