Besides being water resistant up to 5ATM, this watch is also “weather-resistant” thanks to the 3D rotating crown on the top right, which can be used to scroll through menus and navigate, alternatively using touch input to the screen.
For the health sensor used, Huawei Watch 3 is superior because it can detect the surface temperature of the user’s skin, work for a full day along with heart rate and SpO2. eSIM support is also available for use without a smartphone, supports 4G networks plus can receive video calls (although you can only reply with voice).
