The Huawei Watch 3 supports third party apps which you can install directly from the watch with the new included AppGallery watch app.
Below is a list of currently available apps to install. This list will be updated when new watch apps are added.
Note: if you need to install a phone app as instructed by a watch app, you must install it from Huawei’s AppGallery and not from Google Play Store. This is because the watch integration is only found in the AppGallery phone app and not then Google Play Store version.
So here are the third party apps available to install.
There are 25 apps currently:
You select which languages you want to choose from and to. You then are supposed to type the words you want to translate using the keyboard, however the app crashes and you can’t do this. You don’t need to install a phone app.
With this app you can control playback of various radio stations and podcasts which are chosen within the phone app you have to install. Unfortunately, the watch app did not work. No doubt it will be fixed.
This app uses your location to check the air quality for any pollution. Despite there being an Airly phone app, the watch app doesn’t need for it to be installed. Unfortunately the watch app says there are no Airly sensors in my area.
