Honor Watch GS 3 has finally gone up to sale in the Indian market. It was announced back in August 2021 and was the talk of the town because of its integrated industry-first 8-channel heart rate sensor. Here, we will dig into the specs, features, availability, and the expected price of the Honor Watch GS 3 in Nepal.
Honor Watch GS 3 Overview
8-channel heart rate sensor and health features
As mentioned before, the new Honor Watch GS 3 features the latest heart rate sensor from the brand. It has an optical PPG sensor teaming up with an 8-channel AI engine which gives very accurate results. However, most mainstream smartwatches these days have a dual-channel system. Here, four out of 8 channels are used to process the data collected by the sensor based on 20 unique in-built scenarios. Honor claims to have an accuracy of up to 97%.
Further, there is a sleep tracking feature alongside the Blood Oxygen (SpO2) monitor. We can also see that the new sensor is 43.7% bigger than the regular smartphones these days. The watch has more than a hundred different sport modes including 10 professional exercises. Furthermore, there is a dual-frequency GPS that tracks your location more precisely.
Display and Design
The new Honor Watch GS 3 flaunts a 1.43-inch curved AMOLED panel with 466×466-pixels resolution. It has a very impressive pixel density of 326 and lies embedded inside a 316L low-carbon stainless steel body. Likewise, the watch weighs 44 grams and measures 10.5mm in thickness.
There are three color options to choose from – Midnight Black, Classic Gold, and Ocean Blue. The last two colors have Nappa calfskin leather and the first one sports a fluoro-rubber strap. Furthermore, the Classic Gold version moves via a gold-processing model.
Rest of the specs
Powering the device is an Apollo4 chipset that runs over LiteOS. It also has 4GB internal memory where you can install music and download your playlist. The watch lets you pick or reject phone calls while also allowing us to reply to the call through message. Moreover, there is NFC that works with Alipay and public transports in China.
Honor is yet to reveal the battery capacity, but they are claiming the endurance time of 14 days on average usage. But if you need to use the GPS most of the days, then the time is limited up to 30 hours. Moreover, you can go with fast charging here which means 5 minutes of charge can give you a day worth of usage time.
