Huawei Watch D, Band 7, GT 3 Pro, Fit… we’ve taken charge of the avalanche of Huawei watches

Huawei unveiled four watches during its May 2022 event. We were able to take control of each of its models. Here are our first impressions.

The perfect shot for this article would have been an arm clad in all the watches Huawei announced this May of 2022, but not sure all the models would have fit in the frame. The former world number two in telephony is definitely taking a very well-being and wearables-oriented turn. This Wednesday, May 18, 2022, he announced no less than five new products in this fold, including four connected watches or bracelets. Shortly after the presentation, we were able to (quickly) take control of these four devices, here are our first impressions.

Huawei Watch D: the most exciting

The Huawei Watch D, scheduled for this fall in France, is clearly the most innovative product we have seen in a long time.

The watch comes in the form of a relatively thick rectangular case, accompanied by a wide bracelet that one might find a bit odd, especially for its clasp.

And indeed, this curious effect comes from the fact that the bracelet is an integral part of the watch. Indeed, it incorporates a membrane capable of inflating in order to measure the tension.

Before taking the measurement, you will need to properly tighten the bracelet using a paper ruler supplied with it before referring to the notching on the bracelet.

To start the blood pressure measurement, we were asked to place our hand on our shoulder and relax.

The watch’s interface looks a bit more serious than some Huawei watches, but that fits well with its quasi-medical spirit.

Huawei also confirmed to us that the watch should integrate an electrocardiogram measurement by its release. In the meantime, the Chinese firm is also collecting data from researchers in order to better adapt its measures to the European population, according to what a representative of the brand was able to explain to us.

Huawei Watch Fit 2 : la plus glam

The Huawei Watch Fit 2 can be summed up in a few words: it is a very classic Huawei watch, with its interface that we now know well. Its specificity lies in its very flat format, very inspired by the Apple Watch.

Without having been able to go into too much detail, I had the impression of a watch with a large, pleasant and easy-to-read screen (this one has been enlarged compared to the old model). The model also seemed rather light to handle.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro: the most equipped

The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is an over-equipped watch that a simple grip would not allow to understand as a whole. Be aware that in the long term, Huawei hopes to allow the use of the electrocardiogram in this watch, but the Chinese firm is waiting for the green light from the health authorities.

In the meantime, we have seen it, in its two variants: titanium and ceramic. The titanium version clearly exudes this “big watch” side which imposes, one could even say traditional watch. As for the ceramic one, its difference in size (42.9 mm versus 46.6 mm) is clearly felt. This is a more refined version and softer to the touch, undeniably.

In both cases, the screens gave off a good level of brightness and beautiful vibrant colors, which highlighted the dials created expressly for these two models.

Huawei Band 7: the most unsurprising

It’s not always necessary to surprise, especially when you have a good product in your fleet at the right price. The Huawei Band 7 is content to take up the very good recipe of the Huawei Band 6 by refining it somewhat (9.99 mm now). Its loss in thickness is compensated by a slight gain in width.

Here you can see the main novelty of the model: the addition of an always on mode.


Beyond that, we found all the usual features in the menu. The new colors seem very successful in this pop effect they are trying to produce.
