Honor has finally unveiled its Honor Watch GS 3 smartwatch in Europe – at its press conference at MWC 2022.

The GS 3 was originally launched in China back in January, so it's good to see this premium-looking smartwatch hit European shores.

The Honor Watch GS 3 boasts a 1.43-inch, 326-ppi AMOLED display – which these days is rather mid-range stuff.

There's 100 sport modes built in, aided and abetted by a heart rate, with GPS built in, and an SpO2 sensor too.

GPS tracking has been given a big accuracy boost with dual-frequency L1/L5 GNSS tracking, which Honor says it's 167% more accurate than the previous MagicWatch 2.

The heart rate monitor is an 8-channel PPG sensor, so Honor is gunning for improved accuracy here.

And it will last 14 days between charges, powered by a 415mAh battery.

There seem to be three finishes, with a black and silicon band option which is more suited to working out, with gold and silver options that come with a leather strap.

It runs LiteOS, so the look and feel of the OS feels familiar – that’s the same operating system as Huawei used for the GT 2 range, before moving to Harmony OS (which is largely similar).

It looks a great mix of style and sport features, and we’re looking forward to finding out of the Watch GS 3 looks as good in real life.

Midnight Black, Ocean Blue, and Classic Gold. HONOR Watch GS 3 will start at €229 ($256/£191).
