Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro user report bugs after HarmonyOS 184.108.40.2067 update
Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is a smartwatch with lots of specialties including beautiful aesthetics but recently a user reported bugs, that occurred after HarmonyOS 220.127.116.117.
According to the information, HarmonyOS 18.104.22.1687 for Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro rolled out in Europe in October last year, and the company has not released a new software update since then for the global models.
The user reveals that the Watch GT 3 Pro Snowboarding training mode doesn’t always record race data, speed, and other important parameters of the training. It’s also reported that the watch needs to restart the smartwatch and re-enable the workout to record the data.
Coming to the next bug, appears when you try to check the records/training log on the smartwatch under the snowboarding mode including readings such as distance tab and within laps.
It’s also noted that the issue could be the lapse count. However, as you can see in the video linked below, the smartwatch keeps on ‘sort of’ restarting as it blocks the rotating crown actions.
This is quite frustrating as a user but similar issues have been noticed online on Huawei Community.

A user wrote “The ski and snowboard activities do not work on the GT3 watch. They seem to start and find the GPS signal, but the measurements stay at 0.”
On that, a Huawei official moderator replied that “if Skiing or Snowboarding is enabled on your watch, but you are not skiing nor snowboarding, your watch will not record the time as it does not detect the skiing and snowboarding state. You can check the timer after skiing or snowboarding for a while.”
However, that didn’t resolve these Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro bugs. All we can wait is for a new software update, which may come soon but there’s no confirmation whether it’s a hardware or a software issue.

For now, Huawei has not announced the details of the Huawei Watch D2. However, we can look into the current version to get a better understanding of what we’re actually talking about.
Huawei Watch D:
Huawei Watch D is made with new intricate blood pressure components in that wrist-size compact device. It has 2.5D curved glass along with a durable aluminum alloy frame. Also, there are two buttons for the home screen and the health features.
The main functionality of this device is derived from the high-precision pressure sensor, meticulous pressure feedback controls, and less air resistance.
This smartwatch brings a macromolecular tensile strap, ergonomically-arced airbag, and butterfly clasp. This makes the watch stable during inflation, to enhance the precision of impromptu blood pressure readings.
The Watch D takes care of all of the reading using the Huawei TruBP blood pressure algorithm, which is based on a cascade model. It also has different blood pressure patterns, which include smart measurement assistance, abnormal posture detection, and other important functionalities.
It also has customizable smart blood pressure reminders. These allow you to set custom measurement plans, then the watch will remind you to conduct a measurement on the scheduled timeline.
There are other important check-ins for example an insight into all of the blood pressure-related issues, exercise, and weight. These insights help you to improve your diet and health care.
Another powerful capability of this smartwatch comes with ECG Analysis. The Huawei Watch D not only measures BP but also has a high-performance ECG sensor to provide single-lead ECG measurement.
Huawei Watch D is filled with a lot of other healthy features and we’re excited about Huawei Watch D2 for what it will bring to the consumers.
