Huawei Watch GT 3: Getting healthy can get easier

Doing it everyday is the hard part



Alright, I’ve recently fallen out of my intense fitness journey. Since the pandemic began, I took my health and fitness seriously. I was working out four to five times a week and getting stronger. And, to be honest, I had ulterior motives to getting fit: finally going off my meds.

The journey was challenging and painful but, for a while, it was just demoralizing not having a good way to track my progress. It prompted looking into smartwatches that could help me stay on track while noting my health on a day-to-day basis (especially on days where I wasn’t working out).

Guess what your girl got to try this time? The Huawei Watch GT 3. And, oh boy, you’re in for a treat.

“It gets easier…”

Taken from the heart-wrenching series, Bojack Horseman, “Every day it gets a little easier. But, you got to have to do it every day. That’s the hard part. But it does get easier.”

Whether you’re trying to stay healthy, get fit, or be healthier, it can be tough to stick to. Personally, it just got difficult to find the motivation when tracking my health was impossible. This is why, having the Huawei Watch GT 3 not just sparked my fitness journey but also, helped me maintain my health.

The Huawei Watch GT 3 feels like a personal trainer on the wrist. The nice forgiving kind, not the naggy kind (thankfully).

From recording data to analyze your workouts and overall health, the watch helps you get through the tough parts of your fitness journey. It keeps track of everything from your heart rate to workouts to sleep quality. That way, you can zero in on your health like no other!

Pace yourself

When I was working out a lot and staying intensely active, I was overdoing it. I would overwork myself to every fitness challenge out there to push myself. And, well, passed out and got ill. Which is the point — I had to learn to pace myself.

Your health and fitness is a big shift of lifestyle so, you need to go easy on yourself. And, striking that balance can be genuinely daunting.

With the Huawei Watch GT 3 all the daunting shenanigans became achievable. The watch can intelligently identify the basic period, lifting period, consolidation period, and reduction period depending on your athletic ability level and goals.

From there, the watch can appropriately and custom adjust the training intensity and gradually increases the training volume to gradually get to your fitness goals. So, don’t overwork yourself and get to your goals to the beating of your own heart.

Feel better

Because you deserve to. A smartwatch doesn’t always have to be there to get the skinny legend summer body we’re told is “perfection.” You are stunning, beautiful, and handsome as you are and maybe you just need something that keeps you in check for your stress, sleep, or holistic health. Well, funny that then.

The Huawei GT 3 features both AI Running Coach and Healthy Living Shamrock. These will help you not just get fit; it’ll help you stay healthy.

If you want to strut in style while doing all that, these ones finally got what the others didn’t: HarmonyOS 2.1. Letting you experience the same design and interactive features on your phone!

Routine and stamina

Staying mindful over your diet, workout, and overall health can be straining but the Huawei Watch GT 3 luckily won’t give up on you quickly. The watch has a battery life of at least seven days to 14 days in the tank.

Remember though: to go easy on yourself on your journey to healthy or to stay healthy. No journey or goal is ever easy to work towards so, be forgiving towards yourself.

The Huawei Watch GT 3 46mm has a price tag of PhP 12,999 with freebies worth PhP 3,998 while the Huawei Watch GT 3 42mm starts at PhP 11,999. But with holiday deals, it costs PhP 8,999 online exclusive with freebies worth PhP 2,490 during pre-order phase.

Huawei Sound Joy vs JBL Flip 5

Which one is the smarter choice?



Huawei Sound Joy

Summertime is party time. And parties are never complete without music you can vibe with. To get that party vibe, you gotta have the right speakers. So now, we choose: The Huawei Sound Joy or the JBL Flip 5? 

At first glance, it looks like an event match. But a closer look will reveal which one is the smarter choice. 

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. First thing that people consider is how much they’re shelling out.

Price and sound quality

And these two speakers have the same suggested retail price — PhP 6,999. Tough start. But let’s see how these two are different.

Naturally, the next most important thing to consider is sound quality. JBL has proven themselves in this space. They are a go-to brand, especially for audio devices. 

Meanwhile, Huawei is backed by a history of excellence in hardware products. The Flip 5 has one 20W full frequency speaker. And two passive radiators.

Huawei has the same aforementioned components and adds a 10W tweeter to the mix. Additionally, the Sound Joy is tuned by Devialet — a brand known for its high-fidelity products.

The two brands are no strangers to each other. They also worked together on the Huawei Sound X. 

Check out the video above to hear how each one sounds like.

Battery Life

Battery life might be something not too many think about when getting a speaker. But it’s definitely something to look at. Especially when you plan to take the speaker outdoors. 

You don’t want it running out of juice just as the party is getting started.

The Flip 5 has a 4,800mAh battery with a promised play time of about 12 hours. It charges via USB-C. 

Meanwhile, the Sound Joy nearly doubles those numbers with 8,800mAh of battery with a play time of about 26 hours. Charging should also be a breeze with its support for 40W dash charge, also via USB-C.


Connectivity should be a no-brainer, right? Just a bluetooth connection that works and we’re all good. Well. Not exactly. 

This is where the Sound Joy really kicks it into high gear. 

The JBL Flip 5, as expected, has bluetooth support. BTS.1 to be exact. But the Huawei Sound Joy immediately trumps that with BTS.2. 

And it gets even better with these four features: Shake Stereo Link Up, Automatic Discovery, One-touch transfer, Huawei Watch control. 

Shake Stereo Link Up is quite literal. You just shake two Sound Joys, 3 meters apart, and they will instantly connect to form a stereo speaker system.

Automatic Discovery brings up a pop-up on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop whenever you’re near a Sound Joy. Making pairing a breeze. 

One-Touch Transfer requires NFC tech which most flagship phones have. It’s also a straight-forward feature. When a song is playing on your phone, simply tap the Sound Joy and the music will play from your phone to the speaker.

HUAWEI Watch Control also functions as expected. You just tap your supported Huawei Watch to the speaker, and it lets you control the music it plays. 

These four smart features definitely elevate the way you interact with a portable speaker. 


Design-wise, the Sound Joy and Flip 5 look similar at first glance and in some of the ways they function.

Both can operate vertically or horizontally. They can also be carried. But the Sound Joy adds a few things to the mix. 

For one, it has an IP67 water and dust resistance. Unlike the Flip 5 which only has IPX7 water resistance. 

This feature allows for this cool thing that you can do on the Sound Joy. The top of the speaker has a light ring. It’s a battery life indicator. The circle comes undone as the speaker discharges. But it also shows multicolor effects when you play music. Now, splash it with water, and just observe the coolness. 

The smarter choice?

After going through all the set of features, picking isn’t so hard now is it? It also helps that the Sound Joy is part of the Huawei Super Device system. 

That means it will work seamlessly with the rest of your Huawei devices. If it’s unclear what that is, we have a whole other video explaining what it is. 

With its Longer battery life, smart connectivity functions, and overall sound quality, the Huawei Sound Joy is easily the smarter choice.
