Huawei Band 3 Pro

Review Date 10/23/2019

Huawei wants you to "meet the wearable’s wearable." Which seems kinda weird, because why would a wearable need a wearable? Now that we've gone all meta, let's bring it back down to earth. Because the wearable can track you all around earth with its built-in GPS to "makes sure you know exactly where you are and how far you've gone." The Band 3 Pro also tracks the usuals--activity, heart rate, sleep--as well as helps you find your phone when it goes missing and helps you swim better. Perhaps the best reason to get this wearable? It claims to "Control Your Life with a Touch." I mean, who doesn't need to control their life with a touch?

What could happen if something went wrong

This device tracks your location, heart rate, sleep patterns, stress and more. That's a lot of personal information gathered in one place. And Huawei says they may share your data with business affiliates who make predictions about your interests and target you with ads. That means it's possible you could go running in the same park everyday, Huawei could learn that data about you and share it with someone who will target you with ads for that brewery right near the park. You start going to the brewery instead of running and get fat.
